I warned you guys about the overdose of pumpkin come this fall right? Yes, I believe I did. Here comes another all-things-pumpkin I-love-fall post. Enjoy 😉
This is actually an old post of mine from 2 years ago that got very little exposure since I really didn’t have readers then, so I thought I’d redo it.
One of my favorite things about fall is the comeback of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. However, I’m sure you all have seen that article floating around about how bad it is for you. Never would have guessed, right? It doesn’t surprise me at all.
And honestly, who has money for $5 latte’s all the time anyway? These days I would much prefer to make something myself so I know what’s in it.
I’m usually not nuts about vanilla in things that aren’t cooked for long. If 1 tablespoon of vanilla sounds crazy to you, trust me, you can’t taste it and it doesn’t make it bitter. If anything, I like to add a little extra for flavor.
Frothing the milk mixture in the blender is really what makes this fancy to me. I had foamy goodness on the top just like you get at Starbucks.
Also, just to give you an idea how healthy this actually is, Starbucks’ grande PSL is 380 calories with 13 gram of fat. This version is about 100 calories and has 3 grams of fat (not including whipped cream).
Happy sipping, my friends!
