I’ll admit, I love pumpkin pie as much as the next girl. And nothing speaks to the Fall season better than a Starbuck’s pumpkin spiced latte. If you enjoy the Fall favorite like I do, there’s good news for both of us. One half cup of canned pumpkin is a mere 40 calories, and delivers 3 grams of fiber, according to the Huffington Post. Meaning, this delicious low calorie fruit can keep us full for hours! Pumpkins are also rich in antioxidants which can help reduce stress and acne, writes Amber Scriven of MindBodyGreen.
In lieu of the abundant sugary pumpkin treats available this Fall, try substituting a slice of pie (side of vanilla ice cream, please) for a skinny pumpkin milkshake. Not only is this chilly refreshment a delicious skinny alternative, but it’s the perfect excuse to get cozy by a crackling fire.
