After I shared Prince CuddleBunny's treat recipe with you yesterday, I thought about a moment a few days ago when Princess Eager suggested we pick up a drink from a local coffee shop, but I preferred to go home to the Prince's brew. I started to wonder how much that cup of deliciousness cost... or, actually saved, both in money and calories.
Per 16 oz serving, here are the ingredients in our homemade treat:
According to Starbucks, their 16 oz/Grande, (Soy) Pumpkin Spice Latte with whip cream has 370 calories. Our drink isn't as sweet, so I think that's where the difference lies.
At approximately $4.50, though, it's cost is 3 times that of the beverage I can enjoy at home. Plus, I'd miss that (priceless) grin of pride on my prince's face. ;-)
