You guys, as a coconut lover — who firmly believes that coconut oil is the most useful thing in your kitchen — I couldn’t be more excited about the new Starbucks iced coffee drink. And I think that you will be, too, because toasted coconut cold brew.
If the idea of smooth cold brew coffee with a tropical touch sounds like just what you need this spring and summer, you’re going to love the combination of Starbucks Nariño 70 Cold Brew, toasted coconut syrup, with its touch of honey flavor, and coconut milk.
And the best part? While it may sound like a caloric bomb, a grande will cost you only 50 calories and half a gram of fat, which is way better than any frappuccino. I do admit, though, that the 11 grams of sugar you’ll take in is more than I’m used to given that I typically drink unsweetened coffee. If you also prefer your coffee not too sweet, ask for just one or two pumps of the coconut syrup like I do, and assume that number will come down a bit — if you’re keeping track.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to hit my local Starbucks for my first taste of this deliciousness. You might want to join me seeing that the drink will be around for a limited time only.
