Drink for your Health
So my new favorite thing in life is the Banana Chocolate Vivanno from Starbucks. What? You haven't tried it yet? It's been out since July 15! Get to a Starbucks right away!
I didn't think I'd like it because I think banana splits are gross and bananas only belong in a very select circle of ingredients, but apparently this "cupful of simple ingredients" (that's what it says on the cup) is magical because I LOVE IT.
The simple ingredients:
a whole banana
Protein & Fiber Powder
2% milk (I sub skim milk)
espresso (optional) (but you're crazy if you don't)
It's 270 calories (or less with the skim). Since I stopped eating food from Starbucks a few months ago, I've been spending less money there which means I can totally afford to have this every day! (Well, almost every day, and by afford, I mean I should be saving this money for something important, but look! I'm saving the economy one Vivanno at a time!)
If you don't like banana mixed with other things, you won't like this, but if you like smoothies with bananas and you like frappuccinos, please try this drink. It is my perfect breakfast. It's sister drink, the Orange Mango Banana Vivanno, isn't bad either.)
Disclaimer: You could totally make this at home. But if you factor in the time and energy it takes to clean a freaking blender AND peel a banana, you are totally saving money by getting this at the 'bucks.
