Since it was such a special day, I decided to try a different drink instead of the usual venti nonfat mocha w/whipped at our local Starbucks. I got one of the newfangled drinks where they mix whey protein powder with a banana and add chocolate and a shot of espresso. For $3.75 I expected it to be somewhat like a coffee/chocolate/banana smoothie.
What it was? Pretty bland and tasteless. Even with the added shot.
There was enough left in the container so that I could get them to fill part of a glass for HeyJules as well so she could taste it. She did, and pronounced it bland before I ever got the chance to taste mine.
So Starbucks? Two expert opinions of the new, "healthy" Vivanno drink?
Freshly prepared with a whole banana, bittersweet cocoa, 2% milk and our own proprietary whey protein & fiber powder and ice.
In other news, the lack of caffeine, even with the shot, apparently set off a migraine of vast proportions. I spent the next four hours in bed dreaming of lightning bolts blowing up the trees in my yard and starting fires and tornadoes attacking my house. Hubster is working on the neighbor's house, and he came home to check on me to see if I was still alive once. I finally got hold of some Imitrex and managed to become somewhat human this evening, but it's been a rough day.
I think I need some coffee.
