Back log from yesterday. Our Internet provider shut us off for exceeding the limit. I felt so isolated. Went to town. It was 30 degrees and snowing. My wife wants Starbucks. Since I never learned to like coffee, I always get some form of tea. Something cold and frozen seemed right today. My wife was excited when we walked in as her favorite barista was fixing the drinks. I have to say it makes a difference. This one is made with matcha powder and it was awesome. Way to many calories but oh so good.

My daughter gets this, but orders it with skim milk and no whip. I think it still has 290 calories that way, but that isn’t too bad and I thought it was pretty tasty.

Might have to try this. I always have trouble finding things when someone wants to go to Starbucks.

You can also ask for fewer pumps of the sugar syrup. I think the standard is 4, but I prefer it with only 2.

I understand they use vanilla syrup, too. I tried my home made matcha lattes that way and it was pretty good.

Wonder if they have a sugar free syrup? Anyway, the barista may have used extra matcha or else they just opened the tin because it was sooo fresh tasting. A couple hours later I had a jalepeno crunch at Steak & Shake (another major yum). After that had ice cream and blackberry pie at mom’s. Can’t figure out why my gut hurts this morning ;)

I am pretty sure that they do have sugar-free vanilla syrup :) I used to get flavoured lattes on my coffee breaks at work, and in an attempt to be healthy, we always got them “skinny”, with skim milk and sugar-free syrup.
