Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte - Healthy Alternative

  Hello blaruefit family!

I think it is safe to say that it is officially pumpkin season! My entire house is already decorated for fall and decked out with all sorts of pumpkin flavored treats. Fall is my favorite time of the year and pumpkin is my favorite flavor. So yes, you can categorize me as one of those crazy girls who is pumpkin obsessed...I am totally cool with that.

On September 1st Starbucks brought back the PSL (pumpkin spice latte) for the season. There were customers inline before the stores even opened to get their PSL fix, CRAZY! However, I will be honest I did grace Starbucks with my presence on the 1st to get my first PSL of the season too, but I at least waited until lunch. ;)

Being a health conscious individual I knew that the original PSL is packed with fat and LOADED with sugar. So, I decided to create my own version of the PSL that is a little bit more healthy and won't leave you feeling guilty or like you just put your healthy diet to shame. I personally like iced coffee so I ordered my healthy latte iced. I will also give all of you hot coffee drinkers and option as well.
