Fall is for Pumpkin Everything

Bonus: pumpkins are nutritious. Full of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidants – you’re gonna want eat up!

That’s a lot of pumpkin, y’all. And now, I’m adding this Pumpkin Latte because it’s just way too delicious not to.
Oat Milk is Perfect for Coffee Drinks
In the past, my go-to coffee house order was a latte with soy milk. Once coconut milk was an option, I would sometimes get that.
And then, I discovered oat milk!
Craft Donuts + Coffee is a local Illinois joint serving up delicious coffee and donuts with plenty of vegan (and gluten free) options! Ironically, the owners used to live in TX and are friends with my husband’s cousin who lives there as well. Small world.
All that to say that Craft is where I had my first oat milk coffee drink. My usual order is a hazelnut latte with oat milk, but more recently, they’ve added a seasonal Harvest Oat Latte to their menu and it’s soooo good!
Their newest latte creation was my inspiration for this homemade Harvest Oat Pumpkin Latte.
Oat milk is neutral tasting and so creamy. It’s definitely my new favorite for shop bought and homemade coffee drinks!
Oat milk is readily available in most grocery stores these days, but it’s super easy to make yourself at home. My friend, Mel from A Virtual Vegan, has a great recipe for homemade oat milk if you want to make your own.
