I have this repeating issue at Starbucks. I love coffee, but I don’t always want it during later times in the day, and sometimes I avoid that much caffeine. So, what’s a girl to order? Sometimes they have some tasty-sounding options like Matcha Lemonade! However, you look up the ingredients and they are almost always sugar bombs. So, I leave with a coffee. That doesn’t stop me from adopting some of the flavor ideas and making them delicious and healthy!!! I have matcha powder from Trader Joe’s and who doesn’t love lemonade in the summer?!

3 leaves of mint
