Yes you read that correctly, Pumpkin Spice BUTTERED Coffee.
Think about it for a moment, what happens when you churn cream too long? What do you get? Butter. Only I used ghee, which is butter with the milk proteins removed (’cause I’m allergic).
The end result is still a healthy creamy seasonal drink that is sure to rival your favorite coffee shop’s version.
For a dose of reality, I took a peek at the nutritional information for both Starbucks’ and Caribou’s pumpkin spice latte. Holy SUGAR, Batman. In a 12 oz. drink there is 37 grams of the stuff. Sugar is far more than just empty calories, it can have harmful effects on metabolism and contributes to all sorts of diseases.
I’ll be skipping the sugar rush and making my own foo foo healthy pumpkin drink this season. I hope you do too!
