Mushroom coffee replacements, like Mud\Wtr, provide a flavorful alternative to traditional coffee, often with reduced caffeine and a unique blend of adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms that can promote focus and clarity without the jitters.
Is this latte caffeine-free?
While lower in caffeine than regular coffee, mushroom coffee replacements do contain a small amount. It’s always best to check the label of your chosen product.
Can I use fresh pumpkin instead of purée?
Absolutely! If you have the time, blend some fresh pumpkin until smooth and use that in place of the canned purée. It might impart a fresher, more subtle pumpkin flavor.
Can I add a whipped topping to my Mushroom-Pumpkin Spice Latte?
Absolutely! For an added touch of indulgence, finish your latte with a dollop of whipped cream or a vegan alternative. You can even sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice or cocoa powder on top for an Instagram-worthy drink!
