Starbucks may be dipping a big green straw into the superfood pool with its new cayenne-infused chile mocha, but that anti-inflammatory winter sip doesn’t have anything on Café Gratitude’s newest creation.

The high-vibe SoCal restaurant group recently debuted its own version of everyone’s favorite holiday guilty pleasure—the pumpkin spice latte—and its ingredient list is about as transcendent as you’d expect.

It’s full of energizing adaptogens—namely maca and rhodiola—and packed with seriously immune-boosting roots, including astragalus, licorice, ginger, and red root. It’s high in antioxidants thanks to goji and rooibos, and turmeric gives it inflammation-fighting properties And, of course, it’s got the typical PSL flavorings—cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, vanilla, and mesquite—which all add up to give you a pretty close approximation of the OG seasonal sensation. (Except, um, without the 50 grams of sugar.)

The best part? You don’t need to clear out a cupboard (or take out a loan) to score all of the ingredients for this dreamy drink. As it turns out, even Café Gratitude takes a few shortcuts—they use a pre-blended powder from Essential Medicina, which includes all of the superfoods listed above.

So score a bag for yourself and serve up your own PSLs at Thanksgiving dinner, at your holiday parties, or while you’re laying on the couch watching Elf for the fifteenth time.

Here’s how to make Café Gratitude’s immune-boosting pumpkin spice latte.
