Dole Fulfills Pumpkin Spice Addiction for Less Calories, Sugar and Fat

And just like that, everything is Pumpkin Spice. Pumpkin Spice coffee. Pumpkin Spice Oreos®. Even Pumpkin Spice ice cream. The list goes on and on

But the Pumpkin Spice item that started it all – the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) – clocks in at 390 calories, 14 grams of fat (8 sat) and 50 grams of sugar for its medium size.

Dole Food Company, the mastermind behind the famous Dole Whip, is offering a vegan, gluten-free, low-fat alternative that offers the same level of indulgence for 300 fewer calories and one-eighth of the sugar. It’s the Pumpkin Spice-Sweet Potato Dole Whip made with DOLE® Pineapples, Sweet Potatoes and coconut milk.

Dole’s new Pumpkin Spice-Sweet Potato Dole Whip is perfect for those eager to embrace the taste of fall and looking for a healthy yet delicious dessert alternative to enjoy at home.
