Mock Pumpkin Latte
Creamy yet satisfying pumpkin hot drink that warms the tummy and heart. This recipe was found on The Fodmap Formula website. See notes below.
Servings: 4 People
- Medium saucepan or soup pot
- 6 Tbs Granulated cane sugar I did half organic cane and half granulated maple sugar.
- 4 Tbs Pumpkin Puree Not pumpkin pie filling
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Ground Ginger Powder
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 6 cups Non-dairy Milk of Choice I chose Oatly and Unsweetened Almond
- Non-dairy Whip Cream Optional
- 1 shot of espresso of choice Optional
- Combine sugar, pumpkin puree, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Turn on low heat while mixing together.
- Turn heat to medium and whisk in the milk (and espresso if wanted) and reduce heat and bring the mixture to a low simmer. Keep whisking the milk to create a foamy top before serving.
- Ladle the mock latte into 4 mugs and top with non-dairy whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
The FODMAP Formula website is a great place for those struggling with gut issues such as IBS. This recipe has been slightly altered from the original and may not be the correct amounts for a low fodmap drink. I chose to use a mix of Oatly oat milk and unsweetened almondmilk as that does fine on my gut, but may people that suffer from IBS won’t be able to handle the Oatly milk and I suggest using the non-dairy milk that suites your dietary needs. I also used maple granulated sugar (not the syrup) for half of the called for sugar amount, but if you wish, you can use all cane sugar for this recipe. We topped our mock lattes with rice whip, which again may cause issues for some dealing with IBS. This is optional to this recipe, so enjoy however you want it. To make this a latte drink, you can add 1/2 cup of espresso or decaf to the mix.
