Vegan PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) Alternatives for Fall (that you can actually buy at Starbucks!)
Fall is here!! Well kind of...but you know what I mean. Once we turn the calendar to September, you can't help but think of pumpkins, orange colored leaves, cooler air (even if it isn't here yet), and all the wonderful feelings of family and the holidays.
And one of everyone's favorite things about fall....the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. BUT unfortunately the PSL is NOT vegan friendly.
However....I have found several options that - dare I say it - I think I actually like MORE than the PSL and they still deliver that holiday spice! :D
So what can you order at Starbucks to deliver that Holiday Hug-In-A-Mug?
I give you the Cinnamon Dulce Latte!!! Of course, there are several ways you can have this flavor (or variety of it) served up. Here are some suggestions:
While it's still warm outside -
Enjoy the Horchata Almond Milk Frappuccino! (It is made with the Cinnamon Dulce flavors) Just be sure to order it without whipped cream and without the caramel drizzle topping which contains condensed milk (although if you want a little caramel flavor, you can add the caramel syrup which does not contain dairy)
Iced Variety -
Order the Cinnamon Dulce Iced Latte with your choice of plant milk (they offer almond, coconut, and soy). And again, just ask for it without toppings! (there is a cinnamon dulce topping that has butter in it, so you don't want them throwing that on there!)
When Baby, It's Cold Outside -
Order the regular Cinnamon Dulce Latte (hot version) with your choice of plant milk (they offer almond, coconut, and soy). And again, just ask for it without toppings (no whipped cream or CDL topping)!
Trust me, the cinnamon-spice flavor of these drinks will bring you all those warm fuzzies of fall!
Oh yeah, and here's a little BONUS for ya -
Did you know that the Iced Cinnamon Dulce Latte with almond milk is actually one of the LIGHTEST items on the menu? A grande Iced almond milk version comes in at only 150 calories!!!
You're welcome ;)
Happy Fall Ya'll! <3
