Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte
A recipe from Coach Courtney De Leon
Alright, y’all. October is here, which means it’s basically Thanksgiving and Christmas, WHICH MEANS….
Starbucks has RELEASED THE KRAKEN of fall latte flavors, specifically the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
There are a few things I loooooove, and one of them is
cats pumpkin flavored things (and yoga pants….). Luckily, after having educated myself on what exactly the Starbucks Fall Lattes have to “offer”, ingredient-wise, I have come up with a solution!
Before I give away my secret family recipe, let’s check out a little “behind the scenes” of the Pumpkin Spice Latte:
Here’s a link to the Starbucks nutritional facts of a 16oz pumpkin spice latte > You won’t like it
Don’t like to clink links? Here’s the 2 main categories you look at: Sugar 50g and Carbohydrates 52g
50 G OF SUGAR!? That’s what I consume in a WHOLE DAY, not at one time!
52 G OF CARBS?! No thanks, I prefer to eat my carbs.
Now let’s take it a step further and ask a VERY important question…
Enter the skinny pumpkin spice latte:
Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte!
1 scoop Bluebonnet Whey Isolate Vanilla
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
4 oz Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee
1/4 cup Banana
1/2 cup Canned Pumpkin Pure
Add Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice as desired
Blend above ingredients together in blender with ice.
Enjoy this guilt-free treat with only:
21 g Carbs, 5 g Fat, 29 g Protein, 12 g Sugar
I recommend freezing bananas and pumpkin pure prior to blending. You can do this in ice trays. Though you do not have to freeze, I enjoy the texture/temperature of the shake the best this way.
If you are interested in the Bluebonnet Vanilla, and want to get the most bang for your buck, I recommend purchasing it from Amazon.
Now, go make some SMART choices in the morning, and start your day off with some protein in your coffee!
