What Are The Health Benefits of Pumpkin?
It’s that time of year when everyone is gushing over everything pumpkin! I am one of those people now. I tried a pumpkin latte last year but I did not become completely obsessed and addicted as I have this year.
Last week during my “staycation” I decided to give the Iced Pumpkin Latte a try. I didn’t realize how dangerous my decision would be because I have had one every single day since! My name is Kiesha and I am addicted to Pumpkin Spiced Lattes…
During Fall, pumpkin is featured in everything from breads, coffees, donuts and more! It seems that the craze grows every year! There’s nothing wrong with indulging in some pumpkin treats this season. Unless, of course, you are having a pumpkin spiced latte every day…please don’t tell me how many calories are in my new obsession….
