Pumpkin Spice Nutrition Showdown: Comparing Our Recipe with Starbucks

Sara Tane

The ever-popular (and sometimes hated) flavor of fall, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are going nowhere. But avoid breaking the bank and your waistline by skipping chain stores that serve drinks packed with sugar and calories. See how our homemade version breaks down side-by-side nutritionally with Starbucks' famous drink. 

With a little sweetness and a lot spice, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a fall drink that we can't resist. It's easy to head to the drive-thru for your pick-me-up, but it might be coming at an extra cost. See below how our healthy homemade recipe compares nutritionally to Starbucks' popular drink:

By using our DIY pumpkin spice latte recipe, not only are you avoiding unnecessary ingredients in the Starbucks drink like "mono and diglycerides" and "sulfiting agents", you're also saving 100 calories, 6.5g of fat, and 7g of sugar. If that's not sweet, I don't know what is.
