Hooray for fall! We got a burst of cool weather and to me that just screams that it is time for a pumpkin spice latte! But if you're trying to loose that pandemic weight still, then here are some options. 100% they will not be as delicious as the regular PSL...so lower your expectations. LOL!
Chai Tea: Naturally flavorful with no added sugars, a warm cup of Starbucks's Chai Tea is loaded with fall favorites like cinnamon, ginger, and cloves — as well as a boost of healthy antioxidants. If you need a little sweetness, add a dash of stevia.
Oatmilk Latte With Pumpkin Spice Topping: If you crave the taste of a classic PSL but can do without the added sugar and calories, order your choice of a latte made with oat milk, and ask the barista to add a sprinkle of the coffeeshop's Pumpkin Spice Topping. That bit of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove will deliver the same cozy, fall vibes without the sugar rush.
Steamed Apple Juice With a Sprinkle of Cinnamon: Freshly steamed 100 percent apple juice is as good as cider, but with no added sugars or artificial flavorings. Ask for a sprinkle of cinnamon on top for some extra fall flavor.
Caffè Misto: The Caffè Misto is a one-to-one mix of brewed coffee and steamed milk — a simple but perfectly satisfying cup for a cool autumn day. A Tall Caffè Misto made with dairy milk contains five grams of satiating protein, giving this drink some staying power.
Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte: This combination of espresso, steamed nonfat milk, and Starbucks's Sugar-Free Cinnamon Dolce Syrup will only set you back100 calories when you order a Tall, and it's so warm and inviting.
Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew: If the weather isn't quite calling for a warm cup of joe, try this satisfying cold brew. Made with only cold brew coffee, almond milk, and a touch of the coffeehouse's Honey Blend, a Grande contains just 50 calories and packs a punch in the nutrition department. Consider asking your barista to swap the Honey Blend for a bit of real honey for even more antioxidants.
