Woah baby, it has been a crazy busy week! This has been the first chance I’ve really had to plunk myself down!

Yesterday, I had a large tour of teenagers come into the store to learn all about healthy eating. They had some great questions and were really keen about nutrition, which always gets me really excited! I love when young people care about their health and wellness.

The only problem was, after talking at the top of my lungs for 2 hours, my voice was completely shot by the end of the day.

There is no better feeling than coming home after a long busy day, and putting on some comfy clothes…and having a warm and soothing drink.

Generally, my beverage of choice is tea, but lately I’ve decided to go more with a fall-ish theme just to switch it up a bit.

I hear so much buzz about the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks.

I’m not gonna lie.

I’ve never once tried it, but I know that it’s LOADED with sugar and artificial ingredients.

That’s probably one of the reasons I have yet to try it.

Given this fact, it only made sense to come up with my own version of the #PSL.

A healthier version.

The version I created uses real pumpkin puree for a shot of vitamin A, some almond milk for creaminess (and some added calcium!), and a bit of coffee, maple syrup and autumn spices for a jolt of antioxidants.

The awesome thing about making your own PSL is that you can adjust the sweetness of it according to your preference and lifestyle goals.

That’s my kind of PSL!
