Every year around this time, I promise I’ll be better to eat better during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. With all the family gatherings with a ton of delicious food, mainly sweets and desserts, it’s very hard to be good. I always fall off the wagon early because of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes.
The problem is not in the latte itself, but more in my inability to drink just one. As far as calories and sugar go, the iced or hot drink isn’t too bad, nor is it that good.
How many calories is in a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
According to health.com, depending on the brand of Pumpkin Spice Latte you’re getting, give or take a few calories, sugars, fat, protein, and carbohydrates, which is how many calories to expect.
