Pumpkin Spice Latte season is back in full swing.
While there’s no denying these things basically taste like fall in a cup, it turns out your beloved PSL might not be all that great for your waistline.
Yep, I hate to break it to you, but downing a seemingly innocent Grande PSL from Starbucks will set you back by about 380 calories per cup.
If that’s not enough to send shivers down your spine, there’s also a whopping 50 grams of sugar floating around in your beloved fall beverage. Yikes.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to swear off lattes just yet. There’s a new spiced latte on the rise that won’t turn your tummy into the shape of a pumpkin.
Behold, turmeric lattes.
Golden latte – turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, honey, coconut milk and black pepper. Turmeric / curcumin is especially known for its benefits to digestion, immune function, liver health, depression, and even healing from cancer. #goldenlatte #turmerictea #turmericmilk #turmeric #coconutmilk #healing #nocoffee #tonic #curcumin #goldenmilk #fuckcancer #depression #ruok #healingfoods #turmericlatte #letfoodbethymedicine
In fact, according to data from Pinterest, turmeric lattes are actually becoming more popular than the almighty Pumpkin Spice Latte these days.
If you’re wondering what’s in these striking sips, it’s quite simple. They’re made with a mixture of cold-pressed turmeric juice or turmeric powder and some sort of vegan milk like almond, cashew or coconut.
Check out the pictures below for a closer look at this hot latte trend:
Move over, Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Because on the first day of fall it was 84 degrees outside and since I’m hot 110% of the time these days, I opted for a pumpkin spice latte milkshake instead of the hot coffee version. Get ready to lick the screen tomorrow when this baby goes up! #mymilkshakebroughtoneboytotheyard #psl #laurainthekithen #givemeallthepumpkinspice 🍂🍁🎃🍂🍁🎃🎃
