My Latest Love...

A Green Tea Frappuccino Light FYI from the Starbucks web site:

Tazo® Green Tea Frappuccino® Light Blended Crème
A unique combination of Premium Japanese green tea or Matcha, lightly sweetened with a hint of melon and milk, blended with ice, with fewer calories (the frappuccino in my photo has whipped cream in it. So, UP the fat content below).

The latest Starbucks info... they're opening in Russia!
Try one! I've had several this past week as a 'back-to-school' treat. 'Back-to-school' meaning that I don't have to go to school anymore... I'm retired!!!
Do you have a favorite drink from Starbucks?

Hi Joni, I’ve googled Stardust and to my surprise we have an on-line shop called lifestyle were we can buy Stardust products. I would rather have a fresh drink like yours though! It sounds delicious, cause I’m a green tea fan.

I'm not a fan of neither tea or coffee. But, this looks intriguing. . .especially the part about the "shot of melon flavor."

Yum.

You doing allright today???

Only 150 calories! Woohoo!

Don't you know it. There happens to be a drive-thru S'bucks on my way to school in the morning. It is all I can do to stop just once a week! My fave is a venti skim cinnamon dolce latte during the fall. I also like the caramel macchiatos.
I'm curious to try the green tea - esp since it looks healthier.

mmmm that drink looks fab - always up for a low calorie treat!! I will have to see if they are also at Starbucks here in Australia. Although I have to admit I may be more tempted to lash out on the good old moccha frappachino with cream!!

Tracey Petersen said...

no starbucks here...don't tell them that! - but I do love a choco frappacino from the McCafe.

Now it looks as good as it sounds - thanks Joni! Now I know there is a starbucks somewhere in this big city of ours....I am off to find one and try one! Sooner rather than later one hopes.

I love an ol' fashioned 'Decaf, Tall, Non-Fat, Iced, Vanilla Latte'.

I wish I could like green tea, I have tried so many times but I just can't do it! I guess this southern gal is gunna have to stick to sweet tea!

Isabelle said...

Hmm. We do have Starbucks in Edinburgh, but I'm not often in town and I don't think they do anything green.

Joni, I'm so sorry not to have posted your kind award yet. I've just been forgetful and busy, and then tonight I remembered but I can't find your instructions! I'll get to it - but now I have to go and do some marking. Remember those teacher commitments?!

Angie said...

"You doing allright today" is a reference to the fact that I feel like it's been YEARS since I've talked to you.

Isn't that funny.....less than 2 months, and if we go longer than a week or so without etalking--actually talking--I worry that you're having a rough week.

But hey, it's SUNDAY!!!!!

amy said...

I really like green tea. Maybe I'll treat myself to one this week.

Helen Hancock said...

Told Den about this...he is off to find one...fingers crossed! :)

Wanda said...

This is my all time favorite summer drink at Starbucks...in fact I just downloaded a picture of me and my husband at Tahoe, and low and behold, what is in my hand but....a GTF!!

Anne said...

I think I had one of those green tea fraps the first day they offered them and I've been hooked ever since. The first year they had them they didn't have them in all the stores in the winter months. So there I was going all over trying to find a place that still had them, feeding my addiction.
I haven't tried the lite but I'm now able to order one without the whipped cream. And sometimes I'm able to order a grande instead of the venti. Oh, gosh. Now I'm wanting, craving, craving ... bye, now. I'm off to my closest Starbucks ......
