Why order a sugar-laden Pumpkin Spice Latte when you can whip up this nutritious swap in no time?

Unlike the pumpkin spice lattes you love, this drink has actual pumpkin in it. One-third cup of pumpkin provides protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and 16% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C — a nutrient researchers say is directly related to the body’s ability to burn through fat. In fact, one study by researchers from Arizona State University showed deficiencies of vitamin C were strongly correlated with increased body fat and waist measurements.
