Teeccino Pumpkin Chai Almond Latte

We loved this yummy creation from The Nutrition Professor Timaree Hagenburger, a Health Fitness Specialist and Corporate Wellness Professional (http://www.thenutritionprofessor.com). Not only is this drink downright delicious, but it is so easy to make yourself. Its also free of any additives, and has only 90 calories (compared to 380 calories at a popular coffee chain). You can make it with Teeccino Vanilla Nut or Pumpkin Spice, canned pumpkin, dates and Timarees favorite chai spice blend!

The Nutrition Professors Chai Spice Blend

  • Combine 1 tsp of each: allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander with 1/2 tsp of each: black pepper, nutmeg, and turmeric. (This blend is especially wonderful, as the black pepper improves your body's ability to absorb turmeric by as much as 2000%!

Notes

Shop Smart/Prep Smart Tip: While you can cook your own pumpkin, canned pumpkin makes this recipe ready in a flash. Purchase pure pumpkin, not the canned pumpkin pie mix, as that contains sugar syrup and other additives. Since you will only use a few tablespoons for each drink, put the extra pumpkin in ice cube trays, as each should hold ~2 Tablespoons. Once frozen, pop them out into a zip-top freezer bag and they'll be at your fingertips.
