Spring Drink Faves!

As the Weather Starts to warm up and hot drinks from winter start to become colder drinks for summer I thought I would share my new favourite drinks for SPRING!

Starbucks is currently running there new Decadent drinks promotion with the new Hazelnut Machiatto and Iced Caramel Macchiato! As a Type 2 Diabetic both of these drinks sound amazing but have sugar in them! I enjoy my lattes more now than ever before but i go for the sugar free Syrups! I still try and taste all new promo drinks in moderation as to not throw my sugar outta wack but to still feel "normal" as can be and enjoy a treat now and then!

Here are my Favourite Spring Drinks:

Cafe Artigano Low fat Sugar Free Iced Caramel Machiatto
Starbucks Iced Skinny Caramel Machiatto
JJ Bean's Iced Sugar Free Nonfat Vanilla Latte
Davids Tea Iced Black Tea with Splenda
Starbucks White Mocha Frappacino with Caramel Drizzle and Chocolate Chip
Starbucks Iced Skinny Hazelnut Machiatto
Cafe Artigano Double long Espresso with Sugar Free Vanilla

I hope this gives you some great ideas for other spring classics! Please feel free to share them with me!

Also remember to have me add your cafes name and website to my list of local place please contact me!
Greater Vancouver area only plz!

Tazo Chai!!! My New Addiction!

So for the last 2 or so years I have really gotten into Chai... I am truly a huge fan of the Starbucks Iced Chai Tea Latte! I also drink the Boulder Chai Tea Latte as well made with Chocolate milk! I love drinking Chocolate Chais and Nonfat Chai Lattes as well! But what happens when im at home and I crave a Chai Latte but can't make it out to my local bux or coffee shop for a fix!

Well I found that My local Save-on Foods sells The Tazo Brand Chai Tea Concentrate to make my own Chai Lattes at Home and I am in L.O.V.E. with it!!!! The Product runs about $6.99 CDN and is a 1L Tetra Pack Juice Box! it makes about 6-7 (16oz.) Cups of Iced Chai from home! Here is what it looks like: Go Pick one up today and Try it!
