Attention, fashionistas! Tired of sipping on the same old sugary syrups from your beloved coffee shops? Well, fear not, because I have some mouthwatering fall hot drink alternatives that will satisfy your taste buds and keep you trendy at the same time!
Now, we all know that the seasonal hot drinks from coffee shops can be a bit “extra” when it comes to sugar. And that’s not exactly ideal if you’re following the stylish DASH diet. But don’t fret, my fashion-forward friends, because our fabulous dietitian, Danielle Smith, is here to save the day with some delightful alternatives that will make your taste buds dance with joy.
Oh, let me start with the star of the show – the homemade lower-sugar pumpkin spice latte. Forget about those 50 grams of sugar found in the grande Starbucks version! This five-ingredient, homemade wonder contains just over two teaspoons of sugar. Yes, you heard that right! So go ahead and whisk together a cup of brewed coffee, a milk of your choice, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup. Heat it up in a pan, and voila! Add whipped cream and extra pumpkin pie spice on top for that ultimate coffee shop feel. Your taste buds will thank you, darling!
But wait, there’s more! Our brilliant dietitian, Danielle Smith, has even more stylish tricks up her sleeves. She knows that beets are the new black, darling, and they’re not just for your trendy fall wardrobe. These amazing veggies work wonders for lowering blood pressure, and guess what? You can now add them to your hot drinks! Imagine yourself sipping on a glamorous pink beet latte, blending pureed or powdered beets with fresh ginger, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and milk, and topping it off with honey. It’s like a fashion show in a cup!
And speaking of golden, let’s talk about the golden turmeric latte. Turmeric, the fashion icon of the spice world, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to treat indigestion like a pro. Add a touch of black pepper to enhance its benefits, blend it with your milk of choice, cinnamon, ginger powder, vanilla extract, and honey or maple syrup, and heat it up. This golden concoction will not only make you feel fabulous but also keep those sugar cravings at bay, darling!
Last but certainly not least, let’s dive into the world of matcha! This vibrant and trendy drink not only looks fabulous but also packs a punch of antioxidants to support heart health and reduce inflammation. Whisk your matcha powder with hot water, frothy milk, and sweetener of your choice. And here’s a little fashion tip – add a dash of vanilla bean powder to cut through that slightly bitter taste. This matcha latte will have you feeling calm, relaxed, and ready to rock your day!
So, my fellow fashionistas, why settle for the same old basic hot drinks when you can sip on these delightful alternatives that will both satisfy your taste buds and keep you on trend? Say goodbye to those sugar cravings and hello to a fabulous fall season filled with stylish sips. Remember, fashion is not just about what you wear, but also what you drink!
