I stepped outside this morning, and the foggy haze and earthy smell of mounds of crisp brown fallen leaves signaled Autumn. Yes, it’s that time of year when Starbucks introduce their pumpkin spiced latte again. But did you know that a 16oz cup (Grande) contains 50 grams of sugar (& is 420 calories)?
If you’re on a diet and trying to avoid sugar-laden snacks & beverages, or you’re just trying to cut back on your caffeine and sugar intake, here’s a delicious alternative for when those sugar cravings strike – a wonderfully wet treat to warm you up and gently caress that sweet tooth of yours….
