When I found out that Starbucks was coming out with their new Holiday drink:
The Chestnut Praline Latte,
I ran out to get some chestnuts…I’m not kidding.

They officially launched their holiday drink last week and apparently it’s the first holiday drink that they’ve introduced to the market in five years!

But according to Shape Magazine, a grande (16 ounces) of their Chestnut Praline Latte
has 39 grams of sugar, which is almost like drinking a bottle of sweetened soda.

Imagine how that makes your body feel in the morning!
I’m sure delicious on your tastebuds and jolt of energy as soon as you take a sip…
but then a TOTAL sugar crash later….

Not to mention what it does to the abs you’re doing those crunches for.

So, in the spirit of the holidays (a healthy holiday for all),
I healthified their Chestnut Praline Latte and made it into breakfast form!

This is a delicious, healthier version to
that latte – and so much better to have in the morning.
This oatmeal is made with brown rice syrup vs. white sugar and
whole grain oats to help maintain your blood sugar leaving you feel energized.
It has a touch of espresso and topped with caramelized chestnuts and spices, just like Starbucks’ drink!

In the morning, you want to fill up your body with
drinks and foods that will make you feel energized
but wont spike your blood sugar.

Talk about seasonal bliss…
