There are plenty of ways to get your pumpkin spice fix right now: You can go the OG route and order one at Starbucks (perhaps using some of these hacks to make it less of a dessert and more of a drink), whip up your own PSL protein pancakes, or invest in a pair of cinnamon-colored leggings. (Seriously.)

But if you’re looking for a healthy spin on the seasonal latte you can DIY at home, check out this recipe from Lily Kunin. The Clean Food Dirty City founder and Well+Good Council member only uses seven ingredients to create her version of the classic fall drink. The best part? It’ll give you all the warm fuzzies—without the refined sugar.

Lily Kunin’s Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yields 1 serving


3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
3/4 cup Bengal spice or chai tea
2 Tbsp organic pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2–1 tsp raw honey
1/4 tsp pure vanilla
Dash of cinnamon

1. While you brew your tea, gently heat the almond milk and pumpkin puree on the stove until very warm.

2. Add almond milk mixture, tea, pumpkin pie spice, honey, and vanilla to the blender.

3. Blend until frothy (about 15 seconds), top with cinnamon, and serve immediately.
