It’s that time of the year when every coffee shop and fast-food joint comes out with their own version of the infamous pumpkin spice latte. With the popular cold brew coffee movement on the rise, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing chilled pumpkin drinks, too. Stay on track with your weight loss while indulging in the flavors of the fall season with this Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew recipe!
To kick off pumpkin season and fall 2022, both Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts have added a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew beverage to the menu. You’ve likely seen the enticing commercials and advertisements, and may be considering hitting the drive-thru to indulge in one of these seasonal sips. But not too fast!
We know that it can be hard to resist autumn temptations, so we’ve created a Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew recipe that you can sip on while you slim down this fall. It’s lower in calories and eliminates the added sugar that typically accompanies these tasty treats at the coffee shop.
Our Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Recipe is perfectly portioned to fit into your Nutrisystem plan, clocking in at just 107 calories per serving. Let’s compare to the competition: A small Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew at Dunkin Donuts contains 150 calories, while a tall Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew contains 140 calories.*
But the calories aren’t the only difference: Take a peek at the ingredients, too. Both Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts fill up their pumpkin-flavored cold brew with sugary syrups and cream (plus a ton of other ingredients). Our version? It has just six simple and wholesome ingredients that you already know and love. By making this fall-inspired cold brew recipe at home, you can control the calories and rest assured that you’re putting wholesome foods into your body that you recognize. Plus, it’s not as hard as you think!
The first step to making this tasty drink is preparing the pumpkin cream. You’ll need a blender, one cup of skim milk, two tablespoons of pumpkin puree, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, two tablespoons of maple syrup and a quarter-teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Blend together the ingredients until smooth and creamy (feel free to froth the milk if you have a milk frother).
Grab two glasses and fill them up with ice. Pour eight ounces of cold brew coffee into each glass, then top with the homemade pumpkin cream. Finally, garnish each glass with a little extra sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice before enjoying!
Pro Tip: This healthy pumpkin cream can easily be enjoyed on top of hot or iced coffee instead. Have another Extra to spare for the day? Top your beverage with a dollop of low-fat whipped cream.
This healthy fall coffee recipe makes two servings, so it’s a great option to share with a family member, friend or coworker! Losing weight on Nutrisystem? Each 107-calorie beverage can be logged as half of a PowerFuel and two Extras in the NuMi app.
