Pumpkin Spice Soy Latte

We checked out several festive winter drink recipes and while they were all really good, this one from Kathy Patalsky of Healthy Happy Life took the prize. She went an additional step, providing a unique topping for this perfectly pumpkin drinkable dessert. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Base:
1 ½ cups vanilla soymilk
1-2 shots espresso OR ½ cup strongly brewed coffee
1 ½ Tbs. canned pumpkin (unsweetened)
1 tsp. agave syrup or organic sugar (or to taste)
½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp. vanilla extract
dash of cayenne (optional, but recommended!)

Sweet Pumpkin Foam:
1 tsp. canned unsweetened pumpkin
¼ cup warm soy milk
1 tsp. agave or maple syrup
dash of pumpkin spice
tiniest pinch of salt
tool: hand foaming tool

Directions:

  1. In small soup pan heat all base ingredients, adding spices last. (Note: If using coffee, add it directly to pan here; however if using fresh hot espresso, add it in step 5).
  2. Stir all ingredients until simmering, making sure pumpkin dissolves into base well and spices don't clump.
  3. When mixture is at low/medium boil, remove from heat, pour into serving mug and set aside. Optional: to get base mixture extra fluffy, whip with foaming wand a few times.
  4. To make the topping, quickly whip up pumpkin foam by heating all ingredients in tall glass until warm; whip into a foam with a foaming wand. (Note: If you do not have a foaming wand, skip this step and simply go with a no-foam latte; simply add the 'foam ingredients' to the main base mixture.)
  5. Top steamy hot base with a few scoops of pumpkin foam; if you have not added your espresso yet, do so now; add a dash of spice on top.

Don't Skip the Healthy Stuff!

Even though it's fun to indulge in decadent treats during the winter months, be sure you and your family still eat healthy foods. According to a new study by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, high school students aren't eating enough fruits and vegetables.

Researchers analyzed data from 10,800 students in grades nine through 12, finding that median consumption was 1.2 times per day for both fruits and vegetables. Slightly more than one in four (28.5 percent) of the high school students ate fruit less than once a day, and 33.2 percent ate vegetables less than once a day. Only 16.8 percent of students ate fruit at least four times a day and only 11.2 percent ate vegetables at least four times a day, the study found.

According to the researchers, most high school students don't meet the daily recommendations for teens who do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a day: 1.5 cups of fruit and 2.5 cups of veggies for females and 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of veggies for males.

A Sweet Difference

Sarah Gross has always loved animals. She grew up with dogs at home and enjoyed volunteering at a local animal shelter in Louisiana. It was her love of animals that inspired her to become vegan more than 12 yeas ago. She says, “The more I learned about factory farming and inhumane slaughtering, the more turned off I was to participating in that whole world.”

Sarah wanted to do more for the animals, so two years ago she founded Rescue Chocolate, a company offering a line of vegan, hand-crafted chocolate bars and truffles. All profits are donated to various animal rescue organizations.

Her advice about how one person can make a difference:

“Try going meatless and dairyless for a few meals per week. There are marvelous vegan foods out there on the grocery shelves. Volunteer at your local shelter to socialize the cats and walk the dogs. That makes them more likely to be adopted into loving homes. Or, you might look into fostering an animal who is waiting for adoption. Of course, if you have room in your home and heart for a new furry friend, adoption is the most wonderful and direct way to save a life.”
