Comforting, warm, and healthy, this paleo and refined-sugar free Pumpkin Chai Latte is the perfect way to begin a chilly day.
It’s always pumpkin time.
You don’t have to visit my blog during fall to realize that I love all the pumpkin things. To my husband’s rolling eyes I stock up on canned pumpkin after the holidays when it’s cheapest. This way I have it on hand for whenever it’s necessary.
And it’s often necessary.
Delicious and nutritious.
In fact, I can’t think of a pumpkin recipe I haven’t enjoyed. It’s safe to say I’m a pumpkin fanatic, I guess. And that’s ok, because pumpkin is actually pretty good for you!
Both pumpkin flesh (what we usually eat) and the seeds are full of vitamins A, C, E, and K. These provide your body with antioxidants and help boost your immune system. But pumpkin doesn’t stop there! It’s also a good source of B-complex vitamins like folate, niacin, vitamin B-6, thiamin and pantothenic acid.

Pumpkin Chai Latte
I first posted a pumpkin chai latte recipe about 5 years ago, when I was really getting into blogging. It was clean and tasty, but called for chai tea bags, which I don’t normally have on hand. I do usually have all the spices for a simple chai in my pantry, though! If you happen to keep chai teabags in stock, then feel free to sub those out for the spices. (Side note: anyone else feel super redundant saying ‘chai tea’?)
Using ground spices gives me the freedom to blend the chai to my liking, and I enjoy adding in other things like Perfect Supplements’ grass-fed gelatin (my favorite way to boost protein!) and a pinch of Himalayan salt.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
