Happy Monday! I have been wanting to do this post since probably around December, but just never actually got around to it. Bad blogger… But we are getting around to it today and that’s the most important thing! If you’re one of those basic girls who loves their Starbucks but HATES spending $6 on a coffee each time this post is going to save your wallet! Starbucks has so many yummy drinks that you can kind of DIY to make them a whole lot cheaper.
I have a deep love for iced coffee, no matter the temperature! For me, ordering any type of hot coffee just seems like a waste of money. Anytime I get a vanilla latte it just tastes like coffee I make at home, so I stick to ordering iced coffee!
1. Venti vanilla iced coffee with cream. I have ordered this drink from Starbucks over 100 times, and it will always be my go-to drink! Basically, it’s just a sweet iced coffee, but won’t be as sweet as say an iced vanilla latte. Also, much cheaper! This drink runs me about $3 each time, depending on what size I get. Depending on the day, or barista, sometimes this drink comes out pretty strong – so once you get it a few times you’ll get used to the normal color. If I get my drink and it looks a little dark I will just ask for an extra splash of cream! If you’re someone who likes your coffee sweet I would ask for extra cream in the beginning. If they ask if you want the classic syrup say no!
2.Pink drink. A pink drink was something that came out a years ago in the summer, and I instantly was addicted. Some Starbuck’s know what a pink drink is, and some don’t. To order ask for a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk! Pricing for a pink drink is under $5 for a grande, but is about $5/$6 for a venti I believe!
3. Sweetened Iced Passion Tango Tea lemonade. Starbuck’s passionfruit tea lemonade is a mixture of the Teavana passion tea and lemonade. Although I get it sweetened I think it still has a distinct tea taste and is one of my favorites! Price wise this one will keep you under $4.
4. Chai Tea Misto. If you love Starbuck’s chai tea lattes, you will love this one! This drink is mixed with 1/2 frothed milk and makes it a little bit healthier and cheaper! If you want it sweeter order it with a pump of vanilla or cinnamon (to keep the chai taste) or just add your own sugar!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and hope it saves you some money on your next trip to Starbucks! Do you have any hacks, what’s your favorite order?
