Low-FODMAP “Skinny” Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe; Gluten-free, Vegan

Print Friendly Version

One of the highlights of autumn is the availability of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Everyone adores the warmly spiced, delicious coffee treat.

But why wait until fall to enjoy those flavors?  Canned pumpkin is a wonderful low-FODMAP option, and mixing up one of these coffee confections is a snap (takes less than 5 minutes)!

Plus, I happen to prefer my version of the low-FODMAP Pumpkin Spice Latte, since I know it contains real pumpkin and safe ingredients for my tummy.

I think you will agree it is absolutely delicious.

      Since ingredients vary, nutritional content is also variable. Depending on the milk, sweetener and pumpkin product you select, it would impact the result. Glad you enjoy the recipe!

    This was quick and easy to make! I used an emulsion blender, and it frothed up very quickly. It made my kitchen smell great this morning – will definitely be making again!
