Something about a freshly brewed warm cup of coffee just completely sets me in the right mood. I have quickly become one of those people that cannot function without my coffee in the morning (wow I sound so basic, but I'm okay with it). One of my all time favorite things is waking up, throwing on sweats or workout clothes, hair in bun, hat and sunglasses on and getting outside into the fresh air to go to Starbucks. I think it's also the idea that I'm starting off my day surrounded by others doing the same thing. It's that sense of community I enjoy. Yes, it's more expensive than regular coffee at home but for me personally, it's worth it.
With all that being said, I need my coffee to be SOMEWHAT "healthy". I use quotes because some people say "that's not healthy" but compared to a Whipped cream, sugary frapp something or other... YES MINE IS! Here are my top 3 go-to healthier Starbucks orders.
1.) Blonde Cappuccino, 2 shots espresso, almond milk, regular foam, steamed
2.) Venti Caffe Misto, 2 pumps of sugar free vanilla, almond milk steamed, but extra foam
3.) Pike Place Roast, splash almond milk, 1 shot espresso, 1 packet stevia
