Have you ever wondered why Starbucks coffee is so addictive? It's the amount of added sugar and other unhealthy ingredients that make you crave it more. Did you know that their gigantic Venti Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino contains a whopping 98 grams of carbs and over 600 calories? And these are "empty" calories that won't provide anything beneficial, apart from more visceral fat stored in your tummy.
My pumpkin spice latte in noting like the one from Starbucks. It's high in healthy fats, low in carbs, full of flavour and keto friendly. The extra turmeric takes the health benefits of this latte to the next level. The pumpkin and spices add a subtle sweetness and if you prefer sweetener-free coffee like I do, you won't need to add any. To transform it to a complete meal, simply add some collagen powder which will provide extra protein and keep hunger at bay.
This PSL is dairy-free. If you don't have issues with dairy, you can substitute the coconut milk with 1/4 cup (60 ml) of heavy whipping cream plus 3/4 cup (180 ml) water or unsweetener almond milk.

Tips & Substitutions
- Not a fan of coconut milk? Instead of 1 cup of coconut milk, you can use 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy whipping cream plus 3/4 cup (180 ml) of water or unsweetened almond milk.
- Not sweet enough? If you just started following a low-carb diet, then you may find some recipes not sweet enough. You can add a few extra drops of stevia or a little more erythritol or Swerve to suit your palate.
- Avoiding caffeine? If you're using decaf coffee, opt for naturally caffeine-free chicory coffee or Swiss water process decaf coffee which is chemical-free.
