This Skinny Pumpkin Chai Latte, scented with cloves, allspice, cinnamon, cardamon and star anise, has just 143 calories.
We’ve been having some beautiful Fall days lately, with leaves turning color and the air turning cooler, which makes me crave warm, cozy drinks. I had my first chai latte several years ago and loved the warm spices and aroma. I’ve recreated this chai latte in a lighter recipe, adding pumpkin because I’m kind of obsessed with pumpkin this time of year.
What makes this chai lattelighter? I used unsweetened non-dairy milk (there are many types available these days – choose the unsweetened versions with the lowest calories, whether it’s almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk). Plant based milk has no cholesterol, so I like to use it in place of dairy.Iused unsweetened cashew milk (25 calories/cup),so each serving comes out to just 143 calories.
If you like this Skinny Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte, then you’re going to love my Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte , made with coffee and pumpkin pie spice. Both are warming and perfect for chilly Fall days.
Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a Progressive Dinner Party. This month’s theme is all about Pumpkin and is hosted by Jeanette Chen (that’s me!) who blogs at Jeanette’s Healthy Living. With Autumn’s arrival, it’s the perfect time to start using fall’s harvest in our menus. We have some great ideas this month to use pumpkins in all sorts of dishes, both Savory and Sweet.
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.
We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.
Please be sure to see what everyone made for today’s event:
