If fall were a flavor, it would undoubtedly be pumpkin spice.

Keep your kitchen festive and healthy this year by incorporating pumpkin spice in a new way: cooking with pumpkin seed oil! Rich in omega-6 and -9, this cold-pressed culinary oil is just what the season—and your body—call for.

While pumpkin spice sips and sweets may automatically put you in a festive mood, most of the recipes out there are chock full of bad fats and sugars.

This goes double for the most famous fall drink of all: the pumpkin spice latte. Loaded with saturated fats and sugars at most local coffee shops, the pumpkin spice latte is a holiday indulgence that your body will definitely not be thanking you for later.

Our healthy answer to the infamous favorite:  Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk Latte using Flora’s Pumpkin Seed Oil (US/CA). Substituting regular bulletproof MCT oil for our pumpkin seed oil, our Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk Latte gives you all the benefits of a regular bulletproof latte with the seasonal, healthy boost of omega-rich pumpkin oil.

From boosting your mood to promoting heart health, fighting inflammation* and giving you a huge hit of antioxidant-rich beta-carotene, pumpkin seed oil’s benefits on your health are vast. So get sipping on that holiday-flavor you won’t feel guilty about.

Not a fan of bulletproof lattes or looking for another way to get the most out of pumpkin seed oil?

While our hydro-therm Pumpkin Seed Oil (US/CA) is perfect drizzled over seasonal soups and mixed into fall salad dressings, it also works wonders in baked goods and other bulletproof drinks (not just lattes) as a substitute for regular MCT oils or baking oils. Here’s to a pumpkin-filled season!
