Pumpkin Spice Lattes are my downfall. I love them. LOVE them. They remind me of road trips to the east coast, Chicago adventures, happy times and rad friends. Just hook up the IV to me and let’s get this party started!
Oh..wait..California likes to put the calories on every single food item when you go out to eat, so you are aware of the 1,879 calories you are consuming in the In-N-Out grilled cheese…ugh.
For Starbucks, a grande PSL is about 400 calories and 13 grams of fat..there is protein in it, so that’s good, yeah? But there is 50 grams of sugar in just those 16 ounces. So here is my live-fit-clean-eating version:
- 1 cup unsweetend almond milk
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1-2 tbps xylitol
- 2 tbps pumpkin puree – NOT pie filling
Mix these tasty ingredients together.
Pour into your fave mug
Top with your coffee of choice. Our coffee maker died the other week, so I’ve had to fish out the old French press..it’s prettier anyway
SUCCESS!!! Love this new concoction! Plus, I love knowing the health benefits of pumpkin..making my skin all purty, heart happy, vision a tad better and helpin to whittle away the waistline. I hope you guys try it too and like it!
