Hey, hey, HAPPY Tuesday!
So I’ve really been craving coffee lately, like everyday I need my coffee fix. It’s something I don’t really prefer to crave but it’s damn good so we’re just going to stick with it. I blame my mom because she got me a Keurig for my birthday!
Anyways, I was at the store in the coffee aisle last week and saw overly priced “Starbucks Via Instant Latte” – Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor, and I was immediately intrigued so I put them in the cart! There are only like four packets in the package and they’re totally overpriced, but I figured it’s just a one time buy and I’ll conserve the packets throughout the entire Fall season. Because if I’m being honest, there’s way too much sugar in these little boogers to have every day or even every other day. I’m also not crazy about the ingredients- the first ingredient is diary powder (I think I just gagged even typing that out). If you know me, you know I really am not a huge fan of dairy, especially milk.
I’m sure you get it by now, but just in case you don’t- not a fan of the ingredients or the amount of sugar that’s in these, BUT they taste so damn good and even though they’re expensive, it’s still cheaper than buying a single drink from Starbucks! Also, the pumpkin spice flavoring is seriously incredible, it’s not overwhelming at all, and I figured I needed to start getting into the Fall season because my mind is still 100% stuck in summer mode. Can you blame me, though? I love summer. I love sunshine. I love hot weather. I thrive the most in the summer, but seasons evolve so I need to, too.
I almost forgot! The main reason I love these packets is because of how efficient they are. All you have to do is heat up some water on the stove for roughly five minutes, pour the water into a cute water bottle or mason jar, and then pour the latte packet into your cup! It’s literally as simple as that. I do add a dash of coconut milk creamer to give it some flavor, but you do NOT need to add any sugar to these.
See? I told you, the easiest Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Now, go live a little and buy these super efficient packets. And remember, don’t use them daily! Treat them as a little dessert but for in the mornings.
