How many of you have heard all the talk about the Starbucks lattes? I personally love them! I look forward to the pumpkin spice latte in the fall, but I really have to say no to them because they are not healthy! I got together with my good friend Hollie from Simply Whole Foods and she showed me her well loved latte recipe. I love it and I think you will too! And what goes best with a Pumpkin Latte? Dessert!! Hollie also helped me put my book together! Get my well loved dessert recipes + over 100 other recipes + cooking tips from my best selling product… Flavilicious Cooking. Click here

    I am trying to see the “better for you” in this recipe.
    Calories and carbs are HIGH!!!

    I wouldn’t make or drink it.

    • M says:

      The coconut milk and coconut oil as well as the cinnamon are all good for you and provide many benefits towards a healthy intake. Not all Carbs are the same, just as not all fats are the same. One needs to understand the differences and which to stay away from and which to consume.

      You could substitute local honey for the maple syrup which will benefit those with allergies.

      • Tami says:

        Understood.
        But, a calorie is a still a calorie and a carb is still a carb.
        I guess one has to “pick their battles” so to speak.

    • Catherine says:

      Calories are about the same. Fat is higher (they used 2% milk for the Starbucks version to which I compared this), but coconut provides a “good” fat. The carbs are less than half of the Starbucks version. It looks fabulous and I can’t wait to try it!

  • Roberta says:

    Is this more of a meal/snack replacement? Is the coconut milk unsweetened?

  • Holly says:

    Healthier than starbucks… haven’t tried it but I will.

  • Ann says:

    Looks delish! 😉 thank you 😉 As a Beachbody coach, always looming for healthy recipes for my clients! 😉

  • Catherine says:

    Delicious! I made it exactly to the recipe, but if you want to reduce the calorie count a little bit, you could probably eliminate the coconut oil. Cheaper than driving to a Starbucks to order the sugar laden version, and healthier too!!
