Is Pumpkin Spice Latte Keto?
Regular pumpkin spice lattes from any coffee shop are NOT KETO. The classic Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte has tons of added sugars and unhealthy fats. I just took a look at their website, and I am shocked.
A medium drink with 2% milk and whipping cream has 52g carbs from which 50 are sugar. That’s 20 teaspoons of sugar that you can drink in less than 5 minutes.
This homemade keto pumpkin spice latte recipe is only 3g net carbs for a huge serving, therefore it’s keto-friendly.
I can’t wait for you to this pumpkin spice latte that I drink almost every day during fall. Around Christmas time, I love to have tons of keto eggnog. But until then let’s enjoy the fall season and warm up with a delicious latte.
