Most of you know that my passion for coffee runs deep within my veins. It’s literally the bane to my existence. Before having my daughter Starbucks was something that was an absolute necessity every morning before work as a 12 hour shift always kicked my butt. Hand me my perfect morning pick me up and done. A lot of people ask me what’s the big deal or what’s my favorite. Luckily I have been an avid Starbucks drinker from the beginning. I know many of my Seattle mamas might think Starbucks is over rated. I guess I’m just a basic Starbucks mama. I’m definitely ok with that. So with out further ado. Here is a list of my must try Starbucks favorites if you haven’t tried them already.
Non-fat Caramel Macchiato with an extra shot of expresso
This is my everyday go to drink before work or mid afternoon pick me up. Perfect Hot or cold. It always makes for the perfect drink. Although of your getting it cold order it upside down to get it mixed other wise it’s a half milk half coffee mix that you gotta stir up if you don’t mind.
Summer Days call for something refreshing
Green Tea Lemonade
Talk about the perfect drink for a hot summer day! I literally crave this when summer comes around and I really don’t feel like coffee. It’s not too sweet and has the perfect mix of green tea and lemonade. If your feeling fancy ask for two pumps of raspberry for a bit of flavor.
Less Caffeine For A Cold Day
Hot Soy Green Tea Latte
The best way to describe this one is a creamy kind of green tea. You can also get this one Cold which is a favorite of my Husband. I love this one for days that I want something warm but I don’t feel like coffee makes the perfect substitute.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Talk about the perfect taste of Fall. This warm treat taste exactly as it states like a piece of warm pumpkin pie. Yummy. I like to go all out and get a slice of pumpkin bread with it but I’m also a pumpkin lover. I literally salivate waiting for this one. This is the perfect beverage for the beginning of the leaves falling, Halloween costumes, and family gatherings. If only it was around all the time. But the best things in life are those we have to wait for.. right?
Bye bye Pumpkins Hello Red Cup Christmas Season
Welcome The Caramel Brûlée and Eggnog Latte
If I was able to have pumpkin spice all holiday season long I would but unfortunately that’s not an option so I gotta switch it up with these two. Christmas Holiday drinks.
The Caramel Brûlée reminds me of cream brûlée if you have ever had it you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you have not it’s a creamy drink with a hint of caramel and toasted pieces of caramel on top. I like to get it non-fat for a lower calorie option. Perfect for the Christmas season. Reminds me of Christmas presents and wrapping.
Last but not least
The Eggnog Latte
If you really want to enjoy a piece of Christmas this will definitely do the trick. Regardless if your shopping or driving around looking at Christmas lights. It’s a light drink with a hint of Eggnog that isn’t too over powering, which I wouldn’t mind but it’s the perfect beverage for the Christmas season!
I hope y’all enjoyed my all time Starbucks favorites and hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Have a wonderful day!!
