I admit that I have a slight addiction to coffee.  I may or may not require several cups of coffee each morning to function.  I used to enjoy making all sorts of fun coffee drinks in the morning for a little added variety.  If it had loads of sugar, whipped cream, and artificial flavoring, chances are I wanted one (or two).  When I started to get healthy and look at the ingredients of the food products I was eating, I started eliminating things with artificial sweeteners and flavorings. One of the things that I really missed were the flavored coffee drinks that I used to enjoy.

Paleo Coffee Drink Recipe: Pumpkin Latte

I have decided that it’s time to learn how to make a Paleo coffee drink recipe that I’ll be able to treat myself to in the mornings during the holidays.  Since Pumpkin lattes were one of my favorite coffee drinks around the holidays, I decided to experiment to create my own Paleo version.

Yields 1

Paleo Pumpkin Latte
Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1 cup full fat organic coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Pacific organic pumpkin puree from the carton
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Vermont maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup hot coffee
  • 1/2 tsp Fair Trade cocoa powder


  1. In a pan, heat coconut milk, pumpkin, and maple syrup over medium heat until the milk gets tiny bubbles around the sides of the pan. (Omit maple syrup if you are not using sweeteners at all.)
  2. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Pour into your cup and add the coffee.
  4. Sprinkle with cocoa powder (or more cinnamon) and enjoy!

I used the Pacific Organic Pumpkin Puree in a carton for my Paleo coffee drink.  Buying foods packed in cartons has a number of benefits:

  • Cartons use a third of the packaging of cans.
  • Cartons store and stack easier in my pantry than cans.
  • The packaging process stores foods without the addition of preservatives.
  • Cartons are recyclable and result in 60% less landfill waste than cans.
  • Cartons are reclosable so I can use what I want, seal them up, and use the rest later.


Paleo Coffee Drink Recipe: Pumpkin Latte

I was really surprised at the number of products that I can find in a carton!  I was thrilled that many of these are organic.  I found the Pacific Organic Jellied Cranberry Sauce at my local organic food coop.  I cannot wait to substitute products in a carton for my holiday meal.


I’m the first person to admit that I don’t function without coffee. I love the convenience of my Keurig but I hate the waste of traditional k-cups and the mess of reusable filters. At Intelligent Blends, you can get eco-friendly recyclable pods! Use my referral link and save 5% on your first order!
