Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte Starbucks – Low Fat

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte Starbucks - Low Fat - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

I’m pretty cheap so the idea of buying Starbucks daily, weekly or even monthly makes my eyes bleed. When I’m rich I’ll bathe in the stuff but until then I can’t hang. I assume World Market is in every strip mall USA. World Market has flavored syrups. The seasonal pumpkin pie spice syrup (sugar free & regular) just hit the shelves. I had Mark call them to see if they had any bottles in and sho nuff they did. I think I paid $7.99 for a large bottle of the sugar free/splenda bullshit which has 25 servings in it. Add in 2 TB of freshly roasted coffee beans & 8 oz of aldi brand almond milk and BAM! Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte for PENNIES. Everyone complained (my younger sister & Mark) that the sugar free syrup tasted weird. I think they were high. That shit tastes fine. Aspertame has a notable after taste, spenda does not. I should have bought regular since I was planning on sharing. Side note:for 15+ years I was to be completely against phony sweeteners. Thank god for finally becoming allergic of healthy eating. The world is mine! In the video below I explain where we got our espresso machine (thrift store) & milk frother (william sonoma) many years ago. Even if you paid full price for a top of the line espresso machine it would be worth it. Starbucks really is only for the rich and those who have their retirement fund on fleek.

2 TB of fresh roasted coffee beans, 8 oz of almond milk, 2 TB pumpkin spice syrup and pumpkin pie spice for garnish

  1. Freshly grind your coffee beans. Tamp them into the little espresso filter.
  2. Pour 2 TB of syrup into your cup
  3. Either use your espresso machines steamer or use a milk frother (we love our breville). Make sure your almond milk is completely chilled. Chill your frothing cup with ice water. Pour out ice water and add 8 oz of almond milk to froth. If your frothing cup isn’t chilled your milk may not foam up.
  4. As soon as you’re ready to froth the milk pull the espresso shot so that both the coffee and milk are ready at the same time.
  5. Mix your espresso shot with the syrup then add your frothed milk on top. Garnish with spices. ENJOY
