Starbucks Newest Surprise

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Friday, Starbucks introduced their new "Refreshers" in Cool Lime and Berry Hibiscus. These shaken, iced beverages are made with green coffee bean (unroasted) extract, low-calorie syrup, and fresh fruit. The Cool Lime is sublime, so much so I bought the VIA instant version. Finally, an additive to my daily water that tastes so good I might actually consume 8 cups of water.

Nutrition Info: (full packet in 16 oz water = 2 servings)

Calories: 70
Total Carbs: 20g
Sugars: 14g
Vitamin C: 220%

The fresh version sold in Starbucks' stores has similar calorie info. My bariesta was very willing to share this information.

I do not work at/for Starbucks. I just wanted to share this newest addition to their low calorie menu. I was so amazed at how much I liked the Cool Lime Refresher I chose it for my first Blog.

Welcome comments, especially if I've broken any "Blog Rules".

    I saw these last week and was curious, but did not try. Might have to now that it is mother-approved!

    Sugars in VIA powder come from cane sugar and maltodextrin. Also contains rebaudioside-A (stevia leaf extract).
