As sleep-deprived college students, it's hard to remember to always eat a well-balanced breakfast and not rely too much on our morning Starbucks run to get us through the day. Especially with the seasonal drinks offered at Starbucks, it's hard to resist the temptation of that pumpkin spice latte. But, what if you could combine the flavor of Starbucks and get a healthy breakfast, all while saving money? It's a win-win. 

Starbuck's seasonal fall menu consists of three drinks — Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Mocha, and Chile Mocha. Pick your favorite out of the three, make your overnight oatmeal, and embrace your basic self.

This is a personal favorite – the dates give a natural caramel sweetness that perfectly matches with the pinch of salt. Sweet and salty all the way.

This isn't your average normal oatmeal – the cayenne definitely gives a kick not only to your tastebuds, but also gives your metabolism the jump start it needs before the winter weight gain settles in.

Because these oatmeals are made the night before, you can now start your day off with feeling happy, healthy, and fully caffeinated.
