DIY Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

Save calories AND money with my DIY fall drink recipe. You can enjoy a delicious pumpkin spice frappuccino at home without the huge price tag and without all the calories, fat and refined sugar. YUM! I decided to make this drink after seeing and craving all things PSL. What's great about this drink is that it's naturally gluten free. You can also keep it vegan by using non-dairy milk and excluding whipped cream. Did I mention this drink is only 78 calories?!

If I'm being completely honest, I don’t care what time of the year it is – I enjoy pumpkin all year long. And I have been anxiously waiting for my favorite coffee shops to bring back all of their delicious pumpkin coffee treats for months. I kept asking my favorite baristas at Startbucks when PSL would return. This is quite embarrassing, the day I found out I actually held up the line because he told me at the checkout window and so they made me a brand new VENTI (charged me a tall) PSL.

I like to DIY and save as much mula as I can. That being said, I took it upon myself to make my own pumpkin coffee treat. Icy, frozen coffee with pumpkin, cinnamon, spice, and everything nice. It’s thick, creamy, cool, and exactly what I’ve been yearning for the past 3 months.
