the truth about pumpkin spice

Did you know that most pumpkin spice drinks are missing one key ingredient?

Pumpkin.

Kiesha Yokers Pumpkin Spice

Before I begin, some of you have been drinking PSL’s since the end of August. You know who you are.

I know you love them but, even Starbuck’s lattes were initially missing this ingredient, {they’ve since added it}. Listen, I won’t keep you away from your PSL, but I do have a few recipes ideas to add a little more fall into your drink repertoire. 

“Our brains love fall because it gives us the change we crave wrapped in the safety of something we knew was coming,” neuroscience professor Catherine L. Franssen writes on HuffPost

Pumpkin is full of awesome health benefits.

•vitamin A rich

•high in antioxidants 

•vitamin c + immunity boosting {vitamin e, iron, + folate}

•improves eye-sight { from lutein + zeaxanthin}

 

Basically, this mama says, eat your pumpkin.
