Make your own pumpkin spice latte – The Independent Florida Alligator: Monday’s Blogs

Unfortunately, the price and nutrition quality of pumpkin lattes aren’t the best. Spoiler alert: a Starbucks grande Pumpkin Spice Latte topped with whipped cream has 380 calories, 13 grams of fat and 49 grams of sugar. That’s a 4-mile run. A 45-minute cycle class. An hour of an intense ultimate frisbee game. Not to mention the gradual hole that begins to form in the depths of our wallets after a few weeks of submitting to these sugary, caffeinated cravings. 

But I am here to help! Hopefully this copycat recipe saves you some money and calories as well as fulfilling that early morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

This is GOOD tasting …. we did frothed skim milk instead of almond, just cuz that’s what we had on hand.

If you like frothy milk, Ikea sells a battery operated frother in-store for about 4 bucks that will give anything you can buy a run for its money.  BTW if you have coffee cream calorie issues, frothed skim tastes really creamy for a lot fewer calories.
