Slim Down Your Pumpkin Spice Drinks

It’s that time of year again when pictures of pumpkin spice lattes take over Instagram. I mean, I can’t complain, because I love seeing the latte art swirled into the burnt orange colored cream. Pumpkin spice lattes may be one of your favorite things about the fall season and trust me, I won’t judge! They are one of my favorites too! Therefore, I am going to share how to slim down your pumpkin spice drinks this fall! For the purpose of simplicity, I will use Starbucks as my example.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

A 16-oz (grande) pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks contains 3 pumps of syrup which is 40 grams of sugar,  according to Clean Plates. It will still be sweet and tasty with a single pump of syrup!

Starbucks usually uses 2% or whole milk, which can easily be substituted for skim milk or a non-dairy alternative.

You can also ask them to hold the whipped cream.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

The grande pumpkin cream cold brew from Starbucks is 250 calories and two pumps of vanilla syrup and 2 pumps of pumpkin in the cream.

The simplest way to make this drink healthier is to either cut the syrups down by half or order sugar-free syrups.

For the optimum combination of the best taste and lowest sugar, order this drink with 1 pump of sugar-free vanilla and 1 pump of pumpkin. It’s as easy as that!

Ultimately… order what you want, because life is too short!

If you want to get a normal latte or cold brew, go right ahead! I wanted to share these because I found them helpful when I’m trying to cut back on sugar, but I definitely don’t get the “slim” drinks all the time.
