It is official, Starbucks has introduced the new Iced Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato. Inspired by the Spanish Summer classic Leche Merengada, this spectacular Starbucks addition combines the essence of cinnamon and lemon zest for a very acquired yet flavorful, decadent drink.

This new addition to the Starbucks family includes a hallmark of layers. It starts with the whipped cloud cold foam (made with egg white powder) infused with a hint of cinnamon and a touch of lemon syrup and is topped with the internationally known coffee house's espresso. Then, the drink is garnished with caramel drizzle crosshatch and a pinch of cinnamon.

And like the Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato, this drink is available hot. The drink features an array of alternatives, as you can get this drink with almond milk and coconut milk. If you were to order a venti size of this drink with 2% dairy milk, the drink would be a total of 240 calories with 45 grams being from fat. With 42 grams of carbohydrates alone, this drink features 225 mg of caffeine, 36 grams of sugar and 7 grams of protein.

This drink is also offered in the blonde version, which is a less robust espresso and great for those who are looking for a lighter fare of the classic coffee drink. For more information about the new Iced Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato, simply visit Starbucks today.

Starbucks walks into Winter with the Cinnamon Shortbread Latte

The new Cinnamon Shortbread Latte.
Only at Starbucks.
Starbucks is one of my favorite places to go, especially when I am working. It is close to where I work, so it is convenient and ever since they started offering the rewards program, I find myself gravitating there daily.

The holidays have sprung and Winter has begun. In fact, the snow falls have been hitting all us here in the United States with full force. Today Starbucks introduced an incredible seasonal beverage: the Cinnamon Shortbread Latte.

Combining the richness of brown sugar, butter and vanilla, this warm delight is topped with some of the finest gourmand spices which embody the holiday season, nutmeg and cinnamon. This drink tastes a lot Cinnabon. As most of Starbucks seasonal offerings rarely disappoint me, this flavorful addition joins forces with those that are simply amazing.

I will admit, I prefer cold coffee (iced coffee and/or frappes) to warm coffee drinks, but this drink is the perfect pair with Starbucks wonderful old fashioned glazed donut.

And in addition to this fantastic latte, Starbucks is introducing quite a few wonderful things. It is has been one year since Starbucks had the blonde espresso on the menu. The blonde espresso is a robust coffee drink which is modestly smooth and a little sweet. Today, Starbucks is introducing two new drinks to complement this type of espresso. These drinks include the Starbucks Blonde Flat White, which consists of a blonde espresso shot made with whole milk and the Iced Starbucks Americano, where espresso shots are topped with water to produce a natural crema effect and served over ice.

Starbucks is also adding two new drinks to complement their signature espresso. first drink is the Iced Caramel Macchiato, which combines Starbucks' signature espresso with vanilla syrup, milk and ice as well as a caramel garnish. The second drink is the White Chocolate Mocha, combines the essence of white chocolate and steamed milk. This drink is then garnished with whipped cream. I enjoy both of these drinks with almond milk and/or coconut milk.

The world-renowned coffee house will also make the morning bun a permanent item in their bakery items, which I find to be fantastic. It is one of my favorites on the menu right. And the new Red Velvet Cake Loaf is to die for. It is definitely one of my favorite bakery items they have out right now.

I don't know where you will be, but I know where I will be today during my breakfast, my lunch and my dinner. Starbucks, I hope you are waiting for me.

Starbucks Bottled Mocha Frappuccino Coffee Drink

Good morning. One thing I am really loving lately is the Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Coffee Drink in the bottle. I love the flavor of them. Plus, they are so convenient. You can put them anywhere and reach for them at all anytime. 

I love this drink because it provides your palate with the traditional over roasted flavor and still possesses that gourmand sweet flavor, for an epic balance. To me, coffee should never be savory and should definitely never be too sweet. It should be digestible and give you a real dopamine rush to want to reach for it every few minutes. 

As much as I love the ice briskness of the modern Starbucks Frappe, this is definitely a drink I can get use to when the options are limited and I need a very much needed pick-me-up.

Starbucks Share Event

As some of you may or may not know, Starbucks is currently having a share event. This share event is allowing you to buy one drink and get a second one free. The event starts tomorrow (Thursday, November 9, 2017) and ends Monday, November 13, 2017. 

I love Starbucks, so I will definitely be participating in this event. If you want to receive your share event alert, simply tweet Starbucks on Twitter @Starbucks with the hashtag #ShareEvent to receive your alert. 

I'm thinking a Venti sized Cinnamon Dolce Frappe sounds great with almond milk, a blonde espresso shot and lots of whipped cream. What do you think?

Starbucks Green Tea Creme Frappe

I feel like I have become such a Starbucks enthusiast in the last 5 years. It is like I always find myself going there every other day. Sometimes once a day. I love the people who work there as they are always so kind and do so much to accommodate me and my tastes. I think I have tried probably every frappe they have ever made and anything with the word "chai" in the name.

Lately, I have been wanting to try their green tea frappe. I am not a fan of green tea (the matcha has an acquired taste that isn't something I enjoy); however, I thought I would give this drink a shot considering I have always wanted to try it. And just because I don't care for green tea, doesn't mean others will not.

I am a fan of cold coffee and tea drinks more than warm or hot coffee and tea drinks. Sometimes my mood wants a warm or hot drink if I feel cold enough to crave one, but most of the time I tend to gravitate towards the cold drinks. As I am a huge fan of iced coffee and iced tea, I have recently garnered a huge love and appreciation for the classic Starbucks Frappuccino (or frappe).

So, I decided to pick up the Green Tea Crème Frappe. I got the venti size (which is usually the size I get) with almond milk. And of course, I got the whipped cream topping as no frappe is complete without it.

I just love the flavor this frappe possesses. I am not even a fan of green tea, but find myself loving this drink. The whipped cream complements the green tea, as it brings out a certain sweetness that is hidden by little savory notes. I wasn't sure if I would like this, but I do.

The drink itself is 370 calories if you get it as a venti size with almond milk. It also contains 82 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein. The entire drink contains 92 mg of caffeine which is substantial for a tea drink, but not a lot compared to some of their other drinks. This is not a coffee drink, this is a tea drink.

So, what is the verdict? This is 100% Sarah approved.

National Coffee Day 2014

Today is not only Monday, September 28th, it is also National Coffee Day. Coffee is one of my favorite ingredients. Not only do I find coffee amazing to drink, but I love to use it in my cooking. I also love to use it on my skin. I remember when I was 7 years old when my grandmother had me make a pot of coffee. Ever since, I have been quite an enthusiast.  



JIVA Coffee Cubes are amazing and one of my favorite coffee
drinks to enjoy. They are great with water or with almond, coconut,
or even soy milk.
 
Cinnamon Dolce Frappe, one of my favorite coffee drinks
in the world today.

When it comes to coffee and CLICK, the two just go together.
In fact, much like coffee and mornings. One of the best proteins
you will ever use.
Caramel Frappuccino, one of my favorite
coffee drinks from Starbucks.

Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino is one of my favorite
coffee drinks, especially when that time of the month
approaches.
Amore di Mona makes incredible chocolate and one of my favorite "pieces"
is definitely the Caramela with the crunchy coffee beans or the Chocolate
with the crunchy coffee beans.
 
So, for National Coffee Day, I decided to share some of my favorite "coffee" related drinks. Happy Coffee Day! Enjoy!
