This Friday (2/14), Valentine’s Day, from 2:00 – 5:00 PM, participating Starbucks locations will be offering Buy 1, Get 1 Free Lattes. It's a great day to surprise a friend or loved one with a fun treat!
So...if you're eating the low-carb or Trim Healthy Mama way, what is acceptable to order at Starbucks and still be "on plan"?
Let's answer that question!
Based on a 12-oz. "Tall" beverage:
Fine Print: Offer good between 2-5 p.m. on 2/14/14. Purchase any handcrafted espresso or tea latte and get one of equal or lesser value.
Quite a few beverages are available at Starbucks and are "on plan" for low-carb diets and lifestyles. You can enjoy coffee with cream, or, if you're okay with eating Splenda as a sweetener for a special occasion, Starbucks' sugar-free flavorings will work.
Rumor has it that Starbucks sweetens some of their syrups and flavor options with stevia, but this isn't the case. It's Splenda all the way, baby. If you prefer stevia, just ask them to leave the sweetener out, and bring your own stevia with you.
If you're more of a Dutch Bros. fan, they're having their annual Dutch Luv Day this Friday, February 14th as well!
For most Dutch Bros. coffee locations, just bring in 3 cans of food and receive a 16 oz. drink for free. All food goes to your local food bank in your community.
(Note: I did hear that some Dutch Bros. locations are offering $1 medium-sized beverages in exchange for 3 cans of food, so you may want to check with your favorite location to see how they are participating in this Valentine's Day special.)
