Fall is in full swing. That can only mean one thing: pumpkin spice coffee beverages. Over 30,000 coffee shops in the US are offering seasonal beverages based on pumpkin and chai or coffee. They are tempting, but they can break your diet. Instead, why not go for a version that can support your weight loss and healthy eating efforts?
BariatricPal Pumpkin Spice Hot Latte and Pumpkin Spice Latte Super Collagen Protein Powder by Obvi are low in carbohydrates and high in protein. They taste great, are easy to make, and can get you through the pumpkin season without going off of your diet. And either one of these drinks is quicker to get than even going to your local coffee shop for pick-up or drive-through.
Coffee House Pumpkin Beverages - Diet Disasters?
First, are pumpkin beverages from coffee houses really that bad? They often are! A pumpkin spice latte, whether hot or iced, can have over 300 calories and 50 grams of sugars. That could be enough to spike blood sugar or interrupt weight loss when you have them regularly. Similar nutritional stats apply to pumpkin swirl, pumpkin chai lattes, and other pumpkin-inspired beverages from coffee shops. Syrup, sugar, milk, and whipped cream all contribute to these horrifying stats.
BariatricPal Pumpkin Spice Hot Latte
BariatricPal Pumpkin Spice Hot Latte is one option to satisfy your craving without wrecking your healthy intentions. It has real cinnamon and tastes delicious, but has only 2 grams of added sugar. Each serving has 90 calories and 15 grams of protein, with only 4 grams of net carbohydrates. All you have to do is mix it with water. Add hot water for a hot drink, or blend it with cold water and some ice for a pumpkin spice latte.
