Truth about your Starbucks Pumpkin Latte

There is no denying it, Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte is a way to mark the end of Summer and the beginning of Fall. Although, in the last few years, I feel as if the “coming of holidays” has come a little too soon from retailers. Anywhoo… Pumpkin is my absolute favorite flavor. I will try and make anything and everything with my favorite spice – protein pancakes, protein muffins, cheesecake for Thanksgiving, protein bars, oatmeal, you name it and I can guarantee I have made a clean version of it somehow someway! The one thing that I have forced myself to just give up because there is just no way to make it healthy – until Starbucks can finally come out with a sugar free version! The Pumpkin Spiced Latte. Completed with steamed milk, topped with delectably sweetened whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices, I bet you can’t get through the Fall without enjoying atleast one! Just in case you decide to head to Starbucks this season, you might want to consider the extra amount of calories and grams of sugar that is in these suckers. Compared to a regular non-fat, no whip Caffe Latte, the pumpkin flavoring adds in an additional 130 calories on top of the extra 30 grams of sugar! That is of course the “healthier” version assuming you will order the fan favorite seasonal drink with non-fat milk and no whip! Calories
