Pumpkin Spice Protein Latte
ALL YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
Brewed coffee: Can also sub for cold brew coffee.
Unflavored Collagen: I used unflavored to enhance the flavor or the Cinna Crunch protein; however you can also use one of our flavored collagen instead!
Cinna Crunch IsoMix: Calls for the perfect pairing of cinnamon and pumpkin spice!
Almond milk: I used unsweetened vanilla, can sub for milk of choice.
Pumpkin puree: The recipe calls for 3 TBS, but you can lessen the amount to lessen the taste of pumpkin.
Maple syrup: I used sugar-free maple syrup, but you can use regular or sub for sweetener of choice.
Pumpkin pie spice: Puts the 'pumpkin spice' in pumpkin spice latte!
KITCHEN EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR THIS RECIPE
Small stovetop sauce pan
TIPS FOR CREATING PUMPKIN SPICE PROTEIN LATTE
You can heat up almond milk and pumpkin in the microwave; however, I found using the stove top was efficient and smoothened out all the clumps!
Stir in collagen and protein powder little by little. This will reduce clumps to create a smooth, liquidy consistency.
Cold brew coffee will work for this recipe just as well.
Using a frother will help thicken up the mixture; however, the pumpkin makes it hard to get a frothy consistency to layer on top.
Pumpkin Spice Protein Latte
8 ounces brewed coffee
1 scoop AstroFlav Unflavored Collagen
10g AstroFlav Cinna Crunch IsoMix
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3 TBS pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 TBS maple syrup (I used SF maple syrup)
sprinkle of cinnamon
In a cup or saucepan, mix together almond milk and pumpkin.
Cook on medium heat on the stovetop or microwave for 30-45 seconds.
Remove from heat, stir in collagen, IsoMix, vanilla, spices, and sweetener.
Place in a cup and use a frother to foam the milk. You can also use a blender — just process for 30 seconds or until foamy.
Pour coffee into a large mug, and add the foamy milk mixture on top.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
Unflavored Collagen: Can sub for our Vanilla or Salted Caramel collagen!
Cinna Crunch IsoMix: Vanilla IsoMix would taste just as yummy; you may have to add more pumpkin pie spice and add cinnamon.
Maple syrup: SF maple syrup, honey, or a zero calorie sweetener would work as well.
