A Healthier Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Fall is here and that means pumpkin spice, well, everything.

Coffee or espresso on its own has no calories and contains antioxidants. But the popular pumpkin spice latte drinks available at most chain restaurants can come packed with sugar and cream that add unnecessary fat and calories. Not to mention, most of these drinks only contain pumpkin spices, not actual pumpkin.

For a healthier way to enjoy the flavors of fall, try our version of a healthier pumpkin spice latte below.

Next week on A Healthier Michigan we will feature the results of a taste test of the big brand PSL compared to our own version. Check back here to see the results!
