The Most Amazing Fall Coffee!!!
AND it's Healthy!
If you know me, you know I always love trying new things!
Especially when they are healthy then the alternative!
I am not a great chief or "Barista", I'm just a simple women, looking for simple recipes that taste good and are simple to make of course!
Now, let me get to my point here! So, my birthday is just around the corner, so my amazing husband surprised me with a Nespresso machine, (if you don't have one and you like coffee.... you NEED this!) Put it on your Christmas list!
So this coffee, (which you can also have made at Starbucks!) is going to sound a little crazy but I promise... the Most amazing, warm, sexual coffee you have ever indulged in!
So What is it already!!!!!
Coffee... duh, with steamed Vanilla soy milk (the best is vanilla soy from trader joes), honey, and cinnamon on top! (Fun Fact: did you know cinnamon can help burn fat!)
I promise you, have I let you down yet?? Just try it! If you don't have a steamer to steam milk, drive your little booty down to starbucks tomorrow and order this! You Won't Be Disappointed!
When you try this amazing fall delight, leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Or if you have other fun and healthy specialties, let me know! I love to try new things!

The Healthier Way
To Do Starbucks For Fall!
Knowing when it sip and when to skip!
It's just something about a nice hot Starbucks spiced coffee to welcome in the fall season!
I have tried making it at home... but it just never tastes the same!
So I promise you, I understand when you say you cannot give up your Starbucks at this time of the year! And I'm here to tell you, I'm not giving it up either! Life is all about balance, and I am about to show you how we are going to balance out our Starbucks treat!
Here are a few healthy options Starbucks has to offer that you may not have known about before! While Starbucks pumpkin latte is something we want to steer away from while cutting back on sugar, they offer many delicious drinks that toast to the fall season.
