The fall season brings treats, drinks and sweets showcasing everyone's favorite winter squash: the pumpkin. And with it, sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.
For those who want the taste of pumpkin without the interruption of unnecessary sugar, it doesn't have to be that way; Viva Espresso in Alamo at 3160 Danville Blvd., has just added seasonal fare for the ordering, featuring pumpkin that isn't packed with sugar.
Take the 'Witches Brew' protein shake; a meal in itself ($6.75), made up of kale, spinach, pumpkin purée and vegan protein powder packed with essential vitamins and only 180 calories.
