Fall is my favorite time of the year, and I am not going to lie...I am a Pumpkin Spice Latte lover! I used to go to Starbucks this time of the year and indulge in a Pumpkin Spice Latte or two until I realized the contents of that drink! I looked up the nutritional information and found this:

Pumpkin Spice Latte Nutrition

FLAVOR (GRANDE 16 OZ.) CALORIES CARBS (G) SUGAR (G)
Pumpkin Spice Latte, Nonfat, No Whip 260 5 50
Pumpkin Spice Latte, Whole Milk Fat, With Whip 410 150 51
Caffe Latte, Nonfat, No Whip 130 0 19

If you need a better reference for how much sugar is in one of these beverages, just go back to my blog post about sugary drinks!

But...

Don't worry! I am here to offer a much better alternative to these sugar-filled, addictive drinks. Pumpkin Spice Bulletproof Coffee is my new go-to morning drink! The ingredients are very similar to the original Bulletproof Coffee recipe, but with a twist.

 



 

 

Benefits I have noticed after drinking a cup of fat-filled coffee:

  • Fat Loss Anyone? Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT), found in coconut oil, consumption has been shown to lead to greater losses of the adipose tissue (fat) in animals and humans.
  • It has ZERO SUGAR
  • No sugar crash after!
  • Provides more energy for a longer period of time due to mixing caffeine with the fat from butter and coconut oil.
  • Frees me from food cravings
  • Caffeine blocks inflammation in the brain according to Gregory Freund, MD, from the University of Illinois
  • Caffeine increases insulin sensitivity, which is important to sustained weight loss
  • Coffee, in general, has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Brain clarity! (and if you don't know what I mean by this, then you definitely have to give this coffee a try.)

 



 

Now, go out and buy a festive mug for Fall and fuel your body with Pumpkin Spice Bulletproof Coffee!

Enjoy!
