HOW TO STORE
1. Allow to Cool: Allow your leftover latte to cool to room temperature before storing. This helps maintain the quality and prevents temperature changes in your refrigerator.

IS A KETO PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE THE SAME AS A REGULAR PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE?
No, they are different. A keto pumpkin spice latte is modified to be low in carbohydrates and sugar, making it suitable for those following a ketogenic diet.
It typically uses sugar substitutes and unsweetened almond or coconut milk instead of regular milk and sugary syrups.
WHAT SWEETENERS CAN I USE IN THIS DELICIOUS KETO PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE?
Common keto-friendly sweeteners include erythritol, stevia, monk fruit, sugar-free maple syrup or a blend of these. The choice of sweetener is a matter of personal taste, so experiment to find the one you like best.
CAN I ENJOY THIS HEALTHY PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE ON A DAILY BASIS?
While this latte is keto-friendly, it’s essential to be mindful of your overall daily carb intake. Enjoying it occasionally as a treat is a great way to savor the flavors of fall without overindulging in carbs.
CAN I USE FRESH PUMPKIN INSTEAD OF CANNED PUREE?
Yes, you can use fresh pumpkin puree if you prefer. Be sure to cook and puree the fresh pumpkin, and adjust the consistency to match the canned puree’s thickness.
WHAT SPICES ARE IN PUMPKIN PIE SPICE?
A pumpkin spice blend typically contains warm spices like ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. You can create your own blend if you don’t have pre-made pumpkin pie spice.
IS THIS LATTE DAIRY-FREE?
It can be dairy-free if you use non-dairy milk and skip the whipped cream topping. Be sure to choose dairy-free whipped cream if you decide to include it.
