It’s fall which means pumpkin spice is everywhere! Candles, potpourri, lattes, and meal replacement shakes!! YAY! When seasonal items are available, our desire to buy and consume them is enhanced as we know they will not always be available. Seasonal or not I am all about making informed decisions so I would be remise if I did not share my comparison between a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Herbalife Pumpkin Spice Meal Replacement Shake.
Starbucks Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte (16 oz.) $5.25 per serving Calories: 380 Fat: 14G Carbs: 52G Sugar: 50G (more than a slice of pumpkin pie) Fiber: 0G Protein: 14G from 2% cows milk
Herbalife Pumpkin Spice Meal Replacement Shake (16 oz.) $2.96 per serving (before discount then $2.22)
Calories: 200 Fat: 4G Carbs: 18G Sugar: 14G (less than 1 cup of frozen berries) Fiber: 4G Protein: 24G Other: 24 vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, D, B6 & B12, E, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Chromium, and more!
