My Favorite, and Kind of Healthy, Fall Coffee Orders Right Now

When it comes to coffee, I am very passionate about my drink. It’s safe to say I’m one of those people who look forward to falling asleep at night. Because I know when I wake up, I can go and get a coffee. It definitely sounds a little crazy, but unfortunately for my bank account’s sake, it’s all true. As for my drink itself, I’m extremely picky. I can’t stand when it tastes too sweet, but I also can’t stand boring coffee. With all of that being said, once I find a coffee recipe I like, I become absolutely obsessed, and I think you will be too! Keep reading for my favorite coffee orders right now in Blacksburg.

Pumpkin iced coffee from starbucks

If you’re looking for a slightly sweet drink, but also something you can taste the actual coffee in, try this. Ask for a grande iced coffee with no classic syrup, one pump of pumpkin syrup, two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, light half and half cream and pumpkin spice on top. 

This order is so particular that I normally order it on the app because I’d be way too embarrassed to articulate all of that out loud.

Pumpkin Spice latte from starbucks

I’m normally an iced coffee kind of lady, but sometimes when it’s rainy and cold, I want a hot coffee. If you’re looking for a somewhat healthy pumpkin latte, order this! Ask for a grande pumpkin spice latte with light whipped cream, light milk foam, almond milk and only two pumps of pumpkin sauce.

This always satisfies my sweet tooth.

gingerbread iced coffee from mill mountain

I know, gingerbread isn’t exactly fall-themed, but it’s still festive. This order is super simple and delicious, to say the least. Ask for a gingerbread-flavored iced coffee with oat milk, and that’s it! Sometimes I add sugar if it’s too strong, but Mill Mountain always delivers the best. Plus, the coffee shop itself is so cozy and my go-to spot for when I need to get some homework done.

pumpkin iced coffee from dunkin’ donuts

When I’m on campus and need a quick pick-me-up, I love getting a pumpkin iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. Ask for a medium pumpkin iced coffee with almond milk and extra ice. It is the perfect balance of sweetness and the extra ice makes it even better. Cheers!
