Fall Favorites: Healthy Remix Of Our Favorite Pumpkin Recipes!

While apples seem to be the big favorites at the farmers market during the fall, pumpkin seems to always steal the show. Especially now, you cannot walk into a coffee shop or super market without being bombarded with pumpkin. However, many of these decadent pumpkin treats come with a hefty price of sugar, fat, and calories.

Just take a look at the diagram below of a dissection of a pumpkin spice latte. With 410 calories, 17 grams of fat, and 51 grams of carbs (48 grams being sugar), you could get a 6-inch oven roasted chicken breast sandwich from subway for 290 calorie, 5 grams of fat, 47 grams of carbs (only 5 grams being sugar), and 23 grams of protein. If you really needed a caffeine kick, you could pair it with an iced tea. However, we know that a Subway meal isn’t anything close to a pumpkin flavored latte. Which is why we are showing you these top 5 healthier pumpkin recipes to try out this fall.

** However, If you are at a coffee shop this fall and really want something pumpkin, ask for a pumpkin flavored coffee with skim milk.

Now for our top 10 recipes with a healthy remix!

1.) Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte

2.) Pumpkin Chia Almond Butter
