Love It or Hate It…That’s My Coffee Order

coffee

“May I have a quad shot of espresso in a Venti cold cup with 4 pumps of sugar free vanilla, 4 stevia, a very light splash of half and half, a venti scoop of ice, double blended & double cupped please?” Yep…that’s my Starbucks coffee order!

Screenshot it now & don’t waste time searching for it on the menu because unfortunately you won’t find it there! I am a barista in training’s real life nightmare, or as my husband calls me “special order Rachel!”🤦🏻‍♀️ 

Love it or hate it…that’s my coffee order & it makes my soul happy without making the zipper on my jeans unhappy!

 
Yes, I know it is a bit of a Diva order, but unless you have the metabolism of a hummingbird (the animal with the highest metabolism in the world by the way😉) then you might want to give it a try! 
 
It is so delicious & guilt free that many of the baristas that have prepared this coffee drink for me now enjoy it themselves on a regular basis & they call it “THE RACHEL!”
 
Disclaimer…I did not invent this venti cup of guiltless coffee pleasure but actually came across it on a friend’s instagram page years ago & it was like hitting the jackpot! Fifty calories & 1 gram of sugar…that is all that venti cold cup of sexy espresso deliciousness sets you back! Just to put things in perspective…. according to the nutrition facts on the Starbucks app & website, a venti Starbucks Caffe Vanilla Frappuccino has 530 calories and 91 grams of sugar! Yep, my coffee drink is beginning to sound not so crazy now, huh?🙃
 
As a mother of 4 whose metabolism went on a permanent vacay years ago, I run, weight train, & try to eat as healthy as possible, but we all need a guilty pleasure of some sort! However, I try not to “drink” my calories because some of those fabulous drinks also come with a not so fabulous amount of unwanted calories & sugar!
 
Don’t get me wrong, I have indulged in the absolutely sinful pleasure of the Starbucks coffees with whipped topping & the drizzle of your choice…cue the drooling!🤤 But like most moms, I just don’t have the room in the calorie department to indulge on those drinks, so I had to find an alternative…and I am so glad I did! 
 

What is your favorite [on or off] menu coffee order?
