WHAT TO ORDER AT STARBUCKS + AT HOME LATTE

COFFEEEEEE…

Cannot get of it.  You know how much I love my coffee.  Especially now that I have the busiest toddler I have to chase, plus side note: he’s teething & sleeping the worst so I am running on little sleep here.  But with that said I get shit done & handled with my coffee.

I am always posting what I get on my snapchat & insta stories, and you guys love it & always ask what it is,  So I wanted to make a full post on it.  It is the most simple drink & super good on macros.  When ordering at Starbucks you have to be careful of almost everything on the menu… full of empty calories & sugar.

SO, What to stay away from?

The trick to Starbucks is to order a latte with milk & no added sugars (vanilla, chocolate hazelnut syrup etc..)  Otherwise those drinks will get you.  Most of them are high in sugar, carbs & fat.  All you have to do is google “starbucks calories” & most of them pop up.  For example a Frappuccino Blended Coffee has 51 carbs!!  No thanks.  That is SO much and so not worth it (to me at least)   I would rather have two slices of Aspen Mills whole wheat toast, with some grass fed butter.

SO, what to order?

I always order an Iced Soy Latte w/ cinnamon powder sprinkled on top.  Macros?

Calories: 130, Carbs: 17, Fat:3.5, Protein: 7

Or, I order an Iced Grande Almond Milk Latte w/ cinnamon powder on top.  Macros?

Calories: 70, Carbs: 6, Fat: 4, Protein: 2

Or if you like Milk better, then I recommend getting skim or 2%.  

So I like the Soy Latte better, because the taste is better to me, but if you don’t want to make room in your macros for them then you can get the almond milk.  Still good too!  

If you’re not the BIGGEST coffee lover, but still love drinking it, then get 1 pump to 1/2 pump of their sugar free syrup.  

So since each coffee is over $4, that can get a little pricey if you’re going everyday.  So I decided I would just make my own at home and it actually tastes identical to starbucks!  The photo above is the Iced Soy at home Coffee.

You guys are going to love these if you LOVE chocolate, but also want to stay on track.   These have saved me from eating bad at night!  Give them a try.  It is the perfect snack to “indulge” in.

Makes 11

4 Tbsp Coconut Flour

2 Scoops Johns Killer Cacao Protein

1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 Tbsp Coconut Shreds

3-5 Drops Coconut Stevia

6 Tbsp Vanilla Almond Milk

15 Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers

1. Mix all ingredients together, besides the dark chocolate

2. Once mixed, take a spoon to grab a little mixture at a time, and roll in a ball with both hands.  Each ball should be about 1/2 inch.  This makes 11, but it depends on how big you want yours. Once done, set aside.

3.  Take all 15 chocolate wafers and melt in a bowl in the microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes.

4. Once melted side aside.  

5. (optional) Grab another bowl and pour about 1-1/2 tbsp coconut shreds for the topping.

6.  take each ball and roll in the chocolate, then to the coconut shreds.

7. Once done, put all protein truffles in the fridge and let cool for about 5 minutes before enjoying!

SOO good you guys!

I like to make double the batch as a meal prep and just have them on hand!  It really is so nice to have and you get your protein in for the day!
