Healthy Superfood Lattes for Fall & Winter
There's something about fall that makes you want to buy every sweater you see, wear the sleeves over your hands and cuddle a hot mug of coffee... the caffeine addiction becomes all too real.
We finally got some amazing rain here in California and I could not be more excited!
To be honest, I can't wait to whip out my sweater collection and make some warm, frothy spicy lattes, pop some cinnamon + clove essential oils into the diffuser, cuddle up with my pup and work from the couch.
So, in honor of the best season EVER, here are my favorite frothy latte recipes, some with caffeine, others without. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do - they are packed with health benefits and can fill you up when you're having the urge to snack on sugar. They also pair really well with my no-bake pumpkin cheesecake bars... don't say I didn't warn you!
