Oh that chill in the air, it’s just so delightful! It makes you want to curl up with a good book and a good sipper from Starbucks. Too bad they don’t make sugar-free versions of most of their holiday drinks. But that doesn’t stop you from doing it!

Try unsweetened cashew milk instead. It eliminates that coconut taste that competes with the other flavors. Silk makes a great unsweetened cashew milk!
