Healthy Recipe: Gingerbread Latte
‘Tis the season for family, friends, and fancy drinks from your local coffee shop. But those fancy drinks lose some of their appeal when you take a peek at the nutrition facts. A typical 16-ounce gingerbread latte contains 360 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 38 grams of sugar (which is more than you should be eating in an entire day!).
We don’t want you to feel deprived of the season’s best treats, though, so we’ve made a healthier version of the holiday favorite that you can easily whip up at home. One serving of this health-ified latte contains only 135 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 11 grams of sugar.
