Today was quite the day. After watching the swat team show up on my street today, I knew I deserved something refreshing after all the commotion was over. I decided to walk over to Starbucks to get an Iced coffee.
While staring at the menu, I decided since last weeks green tea frappe was a flop, I stuck to what I knew best… However, I was talked into getting something completely different than just a regular iced coffee.
Today I review the Starbucks Blonde Iced Vanilla Almond Milk Latte.
You’d think by now I would’ve known that my tastebuds doesn’t like healthier beverages such as almond milk and coconut water but I decided to suck it up and just give in as many great coffee aficionados often do. However, I think that the shot of vanilla really complimented the beverage quite well since i’m not a huge fan of almond milk to begin with.
I decided to try something different today and recorded my first impression of the beverage. However, this video just captures my first sip reaction and not my actual opinion on the drink itself.
After the first sip, I knew this was something that I would be sipping on for awhile and with each sip, my tastebuds became more accustomed to the almond milk flavour and I must admit, that this is quite the refreshing beverage unlike many drink reviews I’ve done in the past.
Nutrition and Calories
When it comes to nutritional facts for this beverage, I couldn’t find the exact ingredients or nutritional value of this drink. However, I did stumble upon the nutritional facts for a similar beverage. The drink contains Blonde coffee, almond milk (I assume the almond milk flavour was vanilla) and ice. The drink contains 7 grams of sugar and approximately 130 calories.
Price wise – The drink came to $6.05 for a Venti (Medium) which is a lot more than I wanted to pay for a iced coffee. However, after drinking the beverage I feel quite refreshed and capable of finishing my day off (Hopefully without anymore excitement in the office like we had this morning).
I really enjoyed the drink even though my opinion at the beginning was quite hesitant whether I would finish the drink or not. However, while sipping on the beverage for quite a while I became accustomed to the unique taste and found it quite refreshing.
I would recommend this drink to anyone, especially if you enjoy Starbucks Blonde coffee blend and love iced beverages in the summer.
