I am a complete sucker for a seasonal/festive drink Starbucks style…’Happy Holidays folks’.
So, imagine my delight at receiving an email this morning telling me that the Vanilla Spice Latte is back!!!
Yes, I know Starbucks are on everyone’s ‘bad’ list at the moment, but I’ve decided to take the moral low ground and heartily recommend the following delicious cup, which is going to be keeping me aglow for the next few months.
Please note that this image is taking from http://www.starbucks.co.uk (Starbucks please don’t sue me! I will get my own image soon!).
The reason I love this particular seasonal coffee so much is the cardomom spice flavour that just hits the right spot and stops the vanilla from being too sweet.
Here’s an interesting fact for you: cardamom pods include viatal vitamins such as Vitamin C, as well as potassium and calcium.
Obviously I tend to forego the cream, and have it skinny (only 150 cals if you get a ‘Tall’), so what are you waiting for?!
