National Coffee Day– Pumpkin Spice Latte

In honor of National Coffee Day being this week ,we’ve got a Pumpkin Spiced Latte Recipe to celebrate!

If you rely on your morning cup o’ Joe to get your day started, today is the day to celebrate it! Today feel good as you focus on consuming the healthy antioxidants found in coffee rather than focusing on the extra calories from added sugar and cream that often steal all of the attention!  After all, coffee itself is antioxidant packed–and calorie free! Woohoo–Go, Coffee!

And now that pumpkins are in season, give this Healthy Fall inspired Pumpkin Spiced Latte a try! It’s just 71 calories a serving and it’s low in sugar!
