Recipe: All Natural Pumpkin Spice Latte

As an elder millennial white lady living in Connecticut, USA (Ed. note – All true. Say hello to Stephanie from the Marketing team), I embody most basic autumnal stereotypes. The changing season has me reaching for a cozy sweater and, of course, a pumpkin spice latte.

I especially love this version of the recipe, made with maple syrup and real pumpkin puree. I appreciate natural ingredients in my drinks, right down to the Ripples print on top (created with an extract made from roasted coffee beans).
