Friday Follow Up – Staying Starbucks Cool

The hotter weather has my taste buds all about staying cool right now, which means I’m getting creative again with my Starbucks combinations.

I’ve been taking a lot of different Evolution Fresh juices from my local PCC Market and trying them with all the wonderful Tazo teas they stock.

These creations keep my taste buds going with new flavors, which is nice since my regular menu choices lately are my staple Starbucks Protein Bistro Boxes, Starbucks Cheese and Fruit Bistro Boxes, Starbucks Zesty Chicken & Black Bean Salad Bowl to help me stay on my calorie-counting goal.

Always first on my list to keep calories down and balance out my diet with lots of natural goodness is Evolution Fresh!  And with lovely, cool creations like their Smoothes (in a variety of options) you have the best of both worlds!

But every once in a while at Evolution Fresh I splurge my calories and go for their absolutely delicious Chocolate Coconut Mousse!

And while I’m shopping at University Village I usually try to pop by the Tazo Tea store to pick up a wonderful, carbonated Sangria like this Darjeeling yumminess I had the other day…

The wonderfully informative partner, Travis, had me wanting to purchase two or three more Tazo summer drinks when he spoke about all the wonderful creations you can explore with their tea!  Next up is an Italian Soda Tazo for SURE!

Another of our latest “keep cool” craze-ations is made with the fabulous Zipzicles… our Starbucks Chocolate Pudding Pops!

As you can see I take the Starbucks hot cocoa (we like the salted caramel variety) and then we add those wonderful Evolution Fresh Chocolate Coconut Mousse to the mix to give it an intense chocolate flavor, which helps make the Zipzicles smoother too.  I’m gonna try out a coffee & chocolate variety next week, maybe I’ll test it out on incoming Starbucks blogger, Dylan M. Austin from Five Awesome Baristas, to see how he likes the Starbucks varieties we cook up in our Seattle kitchens???

I am really looking forward to this weekend’s Garden Tea Party which should be quite the event!  So stay posted to my social media feeds like Instagram, Vine, Facebook, Twitter, etc. to see the updates as they roll in… in all their big hat, Biscottea, white glove, Tazo Tea and “Royal Baby Watch” greatness!

Which date, time and name are YOU picking?  I’m predicting this Sunday, around noon PST and a baby girl given the royal-historical name Hyacinthe.

BOOM!  I just called her into the cool-name-club… well besides that obvious royal thing she’s gonna have going on too.

Cheerio Everybody!
