The Truth About My Superfood Iced Latteย 

Who else is having an iced latte for lunch? I used to swing through the Starbucks drive through daily, even twice a day or more sometimes ๐Ÿ˜ฌ it wasn’t great for my budget or my waistline ๐Ÿ˜‚ Don’t get me wrong, my lifestyle has plenty of treats, I enjoy caffeine, wine and pizza because what the heck am I working so hard for anyway if not to live my life right?! So the key word is “treats” not “daily” ๐Ÿ˜‰. But Since making my Superfood lattes at home, I don’t even miss the overpriced coffees or the calories ๐Ÿ˜‰ so I decided to look into it and see exactly what I was swapping out and here is the breakdown for those of you who are sitting where I was, in line, at a coffee shop, excited to guzzle down your daily treat ๐Ÿ˜˜
