Glowing Pumpkin Chai Adaptogenic Latte
What is an Adaptogenic Latte?
A Glowing Pumpkin Chai Adaptogenic Latte is a warm, spiced beverage that combines the flavors of pumpkin and chai with the stress-relieving properties of adaptogens. The term "glowing" denotes the skin-nourishing benefits of pumpkin, which is rich in antioxidants and vitamins. This latte is not only a flavorful treat but also a wellness elixir designed to promote relaxation and skin health.
- 1 cup plant-based milk (like almond, coconut, or oat milk)
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (ensure it's pure pumpkin, not pie filling)
- 1 teaspoon chai tea powder or a chai tea bag
- 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha powder (adaptogen for stress relief)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (adjust to taste)
- Pinch of salt
- Warm the plant-based milk in a saucepan or microwave until hot but not boiling.
- Add the warm milk, pumpkin puree, and sweetener into your Elixir Mixer.
- If using chai tea powder, add it now. If using a chai tea bag, steep it in the warm milk for 5 minutes beforehand and remove before adding to the Elixir Mixer.
- Add in the ashwagandha powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of salt.
- With the flip cap open (since it's a hot drink), start whisking on the first speed until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture is frothy.
- Sip out of your Elixir Mixer directly or pour into your favorite mug, sprinkle a little cinnamon on top for garnish, and sip and enjoy!
Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants and vitamins that promote healthy, glowing skin.
