If I were to discourage you from eating a nourishing, "traditional" diet, I would tell you about one of its side effects.
It is almost a dealbreaker.
Why I Love Fall Reason #4- The Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. It re-emerges every September 1, and I have been waiting three whole days for the perfect time to go get one.
I got one this morning and was so excited to inhale the fall-ish aroma.
I took my first sip.
I almost spat it out.
Yuck! What in the world? It tastes almost exactly like how I remember it from years past...only...chemical-y-er. As if all I could taste were chemicals.
On the plus side, I will be saving approximately $70 this fall. Beau will be so proud. On that note, I'll re-share how to recreate pumpkin coffee at home. It looks like this will be the only way this mommy will be enjoying her spicy pumpkin goodness for the season.
In your grinder,
Pour in enough beans for a whole pot of coffee.
Add 1 tsp of Pumpkin Pie seasoning.
Brew and enjoy.
