Easy 150 Calorie Pumpkin Spice Latte

I have been looking forward to Pumpkin Spice Latte season all year,  but those suckers can get expensive and are really high calorie. I was looking for something to fill my pumpkin spice needs, so I was thrilled when I found Pumpkin Spice Kisses at the grocery store. My advice to you is stock up on these now! Not only do these taste incredible, but they are the perfect ingredient for a DIY pumpkin spice latte.

Coffee ( I used Starbucks Pike's Place blend)
3 tbsp
2 Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses
Splenda or sugar (optional)
Whipped cream (optional)

Brew your coffee strong. Drop 2 kisses into the cup while the coffee is still really hot.
Once the kisses have melted add your creamer and Splenda if you want it a bit sweeter.

Here is a breakdown of your calories: 2 Kisses = 46 calories, 3 tbsp creamer = 105 calories, coffee = 0 calories.   If you add sugar and whipped cream it will be a bit higher.

If you still want to splurge, this pairs perfectly with a piece of delicious pear crisp. You can find the recipe on Paula Deen's website. Or...if you want to keep with the pumpkin theme, you can try my recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip mini loaves. Yum!

  1. What a great recipe! I'm a huge fan of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes (but not the price)! I'll definitely give your version a try ;o)

    I'm hosting The Great Pumpkin Party all month with One Artsy Mama and Happy Hour Projects! You should come link up your recipe :o)

  2. I bought a Pumpkin Spice Latte yesterday, and when I got up to the front of the line to pay, and they said I owed a couple cents under $5, I was thinking, "oh ya! that's why I don't buy these all the time!" I forget how much they cost until I go to buy my first one for the year! lol
