When you live in the desert you start dreaming of fall by the middle of July. By the time August hits I am craving pumpkin. To transport myself to fall early each year I hoard some of my fall favorites from the past fall to tide me over until they start hitting the shelves again.
You will always find Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin lotion & soap in my bathroom, can’s of pumpkin and bottles of sugar free pumpkin pie syrup in the pantry.
Every year I look forward to kicking off fall with Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, but I recently calculated the Points Plus value for a non-fat, no whip venti at a whopping 9 points. Ouch! It’s hard to tell by their nutrition information, but a venti iced version (non fat, no whip) may be a little less at 6 points, but still pretty steep for something I used to drink often.
I will definitely be saving that for an occasional treat. But I refuse to go out without one of my favorite fall things. Each fall I buy a case of Torani Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Spice Syrup which will last me through the following year.
Recently I tried almond milk and found the vanilla almond milk makes my favorite fall latte even better.
A full cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk is only 1 Points Plus value and 3 ounces or less is 0 Points Plus. I tend to use a small amount of milk in my iced lattes, which has my version clocking in at 0 Points Plus (only 15 calories). If you prefer more milk a cup added to your latte would be 1 Points Plus (40 calories). I will be enjoying these guilt free from now until Thanksgiving.
