While you can make a latte macchiato vegan by asking for almond or soy milk instead of dairy, not all syrups are vegan. Some pumpkin latte syrups contain skim milk, therefore can’t be used to make a vegan latte.

However, if you want to enjoy a healthier fall drink, try this healthy pumpkin smoothie! It is done in just a few minutes, low in calories, and provides some important vitamins and minerals.
