I have been getting requests for a healthy, sugar-free spiced latte recipe for a while. Here is a great one! You can make this quickly and it is a perfect breakfast or evening treat.
I LOVE to use ginger in mine as ginger supports the production of digestive juices such as stomach acid, bile and pancreatic enzymes. Using ginger in your recipes throughout the day is one of the best tips for improving the entire digestive process. It doubles as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent to reduce pain and swelling in the body.
2 tablespoons of pumpkin isn’t much, but it gives you about 3-4 grams of net carbs. This is low enough to have and maintain a fat burning physiology, especially since you are combining those carbs with coconut fats and herbs like cinnamon that improve blood sugar stabilization.
