Hey y'all! So for me, summer means heat, which means the inevitable craving for a cold drink. Since I'm not a huge iced coffee drinker, I gravitate towards frappucinos. They're delicious, but they can run upwards of 450 calories and $4, which can add up to a lot! After seeing a deliciously frothy-looking 10-calorie drink on Instagram (@pbeechie), I was inspired to do a little experimenting of my own, and I've come up with what I think is the perfect Starbucks drink. It's a little lighter calorie and money wise, which is always a win!
Okay, so this comes out a little differently each time (which accounts for the color difference in the pictures), but it's delicious!
- Venti cup, filled 3/4 of the way with ice and water
- double blended with
- 1 pump espresso (this is up to you, but I can't take too much coffee)
- 2 pumps sugar-free caramel syrup
- 2 pumps sugar-free vanilla syrup
Your barista might hate you, but it shouldn't be too bad if you write it down on your phone and show it to them (yes I did this oops), and it comes out to $2.00-2.50!
Let me know if you try this, because it's bomb! :)
