What's in Pumpkin Pie Spice?
When it comes to pumpkin spice, check the ingredients! Sometimes the store bought versions will have fillers, or less than ideal ingredients that can spike your blood sugar. Your best bet is to make your own low carb pumpkin pie spice. Plus, you can make a delicious keto Pumpkin Spice Latte, or any of my other low carb pumpkin recipes with the leftovers!
STEP 4: Add the heavy cream, sweetener, and pumpkin pie spice and mix on low until well combined.
