Just checking in here with a quick post about some fall drinks to try at Starbucks. When I think about any fall activity from reading a book or taking a scenic drive to tailgating and going to the pumpkin patch, I always imagine doing it with a cozy drink in hand. It seems like you mostly just hear about the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but Starbucks actually has quite a good range of other fall drinks to try if the PSL isn’t your thing! In fact, there’s one I think is totally underrated and actually better than the PSL (and it’s number two on this list)…
iced pumpkin chai latte
Since the iced chai latte with coconut milk is my go-to order during the year, it makes sense that I simply add pumpkin for fall. This is great for you if you wanna get in on the PSL love, but are like me in that you don’t really do coffee.
caramel apple spice
This is by far my favorite hot Starbucks drink on their menu at any time and, again, it’s not even coffee! It’s hot apple cider with cinnamon dolce syrup and a caramel drizzle and it’s the perfect drink for walking around the park on a crisp day or just shopping at Target.
maple pecan latte
Finally, an actual coffee drink! This one is an espresso and steamed milk with added elements like maple syrup, pecan, brown butter, and a little sugar topping. As always, you can get a lower calorie version by ordering with non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut.
pumpkin spice frappuccino
A cold twist on the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte, this is a great option if you’re looking to indulge. It’s all the same flavors but turned into a dessert rather than a morning pick-me-up.
salted caramel hot chocolate
Here’s a fall twist on a typically winter-themed drink. It’s the classic Starbucks hot chocolate but mixed in with toffee and vanilla syrups, topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
comfort wellness brewed tea
For a healthy drink that’ll boost your immune system for the cold weather, I recommend the Comfort Wellness tea. It’s a blend of ingredients like lemon, ginger, fennel, licorice root, mint, and chamomile.
royal english breakfast tea latte
If you’re not a coffee drinker but want something creamy other than chai, this is the drink for you. It’s a simple latte made from English Breakfast Tea with cane syrup and frothy steamed milk.
What’s your go-to coffee order for fall? Have you tried any of the drinks I mentioned?
