In mid July, Starbucks introduced their new line of nourishing blends, but since Bossy typically favors blends without a nutrient in it, the drink didn’t seem appealing. Until this past Tuesday.
Here’s what happened this past Tuesday: Bossy and her friend Martha were taking their usual morning walk, where usual equals not enough.
And per usual the two were complaining about their bad habits—a conversation which typically takes them across fields, under bridges, and along paths, until they are inevitably deposited at the Starbucks counter ordering dessert with caffeine around it, served in a lap pool complete with straw.
But this time Martha and her friend Bossy decided to improve their habits and try the new Vivanno drink—they both ordered the Orange Mango Banana Blend.
Bossy admits she was initially put off by the promise of Naked Juice and proprietary whey. In fact Bossy had to race to her dictionary to check the definition of proprietary.
Well. Maybe it was the 120mg of sodium, or the 32g of sugar, or maybe it was the ice—but: the drink is delicious. And lucky thing because it only costs one small mortgage payment.
Which is why Bossy is left trying to recreate the thing at home. Except without the added protein or fiber or orange juice. Oh, and Bossy’s husband forgot the yogurt. Hi Bossy’s husband!
