Gingerbread Latte in Christmas Mug Starbucks is famous for their seasonal drinks. I admit they taste delicious; the only thing is they’re loaded with sugar, and even the “skinnies” are loaded with artificial sweeteners. Too much sugar will cause all kinds of side effects and problems…like weight gain, bloating, weakened immune system, headaches, fatigue, aging, wrinkles, etc, etc.

So, instead of the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte, which has 29g of sugar in just the tall 12oz with nonfat milk and whipped cream {and a 16oz has 37g!}, let’s make a super easy, much healthier recipe at home. I promise it’s just as delicious…even better;)  keep reading
