A Discovery

My friend Wendy frequents Starbucks. I've never been. Yes, I know it's weird but I don't drink coffee, any type.  I don't know the difference between iced coffee, lattes or mocha whatevers & the ordering process intimidates me. Again, I know it's stupid but I have a ridiculous fear of looking stupid in public. Huge character flaw I know, I can't help it, I care about what people think.  Anywho, Wendy has been talking about the green tea & how good it is. I've only tried green tea once & it was one of those pre-made ones in a bottle & it was disgusting. With all the working out & trying to eat healthy that I'm doing, I keep seeing how great green tea is for you so I decided to try it. Wendy agreed with me that the stuff in the bottle is gross & that this is different. I was ready early this morning so I stopped at Starbucks on the way to work. Wendy told me exactly how to order. I had a Venti Iced Green Tea Unsweetened.
I added Truvia. It's sooooo good!!! There's a hint of mint which makes it very refreshing. I think it would be great after a workout or just on a really hot day which incidentally, is every day here. The best part is 0 calories & it's good for me!

While I was looking for a picture on Starbucks website I discovered all sorts of greatness. It's been said that I live under a rock. This would be another example of that. I thought all they sold was a million different types of coffee but they have several fruity lemonade concoctions too!!! Kind of like a healthy version of Sonic.

I'm off to enjoy my new discovery. Have a great day!

Toodles!

  1. Hmm-- Sounds like Starbucks has a new fan! :)

    I agree the bottled kind is NASTY!! And because of that, I have avoided all others.

    Thanks for the tip. BTW... how goes the running?

  2. Hmmm... I may have to try that. I'm with you and not a coffee fan...of any type! I'm not a Starbucks girl, except I do like the caramel apple cider and hot chocolate!

  3. Hey Traci, I have to have my coffee in the mornings! I have never been a starbucks fan, so I didn't even know they served it. I keep green tea in the pantry in the winter time, and drink it hot like coffee when I make it, and that is the only way I have ever had it. Have a great one!

  4. Don't feel to bad I've never ordered anything from a Sbux either. I just get the lemonade out of the cooler. Might have to try the green tea though!

  6. I love STARBUCKS!! If you think you may become a regular, start working on a gold card - it will save you $$$ (and give you a shallow sense of importance). I LOVE the pink lemonade passion this summer :) oh and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are just around the corner - not so healthy, but YUMMY!!!

  9. I can see why you haven't tried Starbucks if you aren't a coffee fan. I've never tried green tea there, but I'll give it a shot. I've sworn off my fave skinny vanilla lattes for the time being.
