Fall is here, and with Fall we have the onslaught of Pumpkin Spice flavored everything in our midst. All of our favorite coffee shops are coming up with a new and delicious drink that is probably packed full of sugary sweetness that does nothing but pumps us up for a bit and then leads us into a sugar coma and crash not even a few hours later.
 
Are there better options for coffee during the fall season, so we don’t have to sacrifice our treat or pick me up? Of course, there are!
 
Pumpkin Latte
 
A lot of the most popular drinks we find at our coffee shops actually target younger kids. They are packed full of sugar, topped with whipped cream, and can be in excess of 360 calories! Even the Pumpkin Spice Latte boasts of 380 calories and 49 grams of sugar.
 
However, if you want your pumpkin fix without all the added fat and sugar, then try ordering the latte with skim milk, no sugar, and no sweetener. Doing so can actually knock almost 100 calories off this fall favorite.
 
Café Americano
 
A Café Americano is coffee at its finest and in a very simple form. The actual drink only has around 10 calories which makes it one of the best and healthiest choices you can get. But, keep in mind, you cannot add any sugar, sweeteners, or whipped cream to this and it is best if it is soy or skim milk instead of the creamer.
 
Skinny Cinnamon Dolce
 
This drink, another fall favorite, is loaded with sugar and fat if a few changes aren’t made. Ask for the sugar-free syrup, nonfat milk, and don’t say yes to a whipped cream topper. You get all the fall flavor you are looking for, without sacrificing your healthy diet in the process.
 
As you can see, there are many ways you can still enjoy your favorite coffee drinks during fall but without the excess sugar, calories, and fat. Make health-conscious choices and substitute some of those ingredients out for a healthier option and refrain from drowning the drink in whipped cream which offers zero nutritional value.
 
Another tip? Make the coffee yourself at home! Not only will you save money, but you will also have more control over the ingredients being used to make your favorite drinks. If you are still unsure, be sure to ask a nutritional coach if they have any other helpful tips.
