gingerbread latte + holiday coconut milk fiesta

Red cup time at Starbucks is the best time of all. The best drinks are here and I’m feeling totes festivo. I have enough love for all the holiday drinks*, but my fave is the gingerbread latte. I’ve had a few of them since Friday (the big red cup release day). Thanks for keeping it classy Starbucks and waiting until after Halloween to start breaking out the holiday season.

So, what do you think of the red cups this year?


I think my fave cups were the “love” cups because I am a huge sap. OK, these are actually Valentine’s Day cups, but whatev. The holidays are for love, right? Love is all around, says Hugh Grant.

Which of all the red cups are your fave?

Would you ever make your own gingerbread syrup? I currently have my eye on this delish recipe. The author of this sweet little blog actually covers a few of the Starbucks drinks. If you try them before me, let me know what you think, ok?

Also, I found the So Delicious Pumpkin Spice coconut milk at Whole Foods last night (drooled over in this post). They had coconut and soy to choose from and I feel like soy does bad things to your hormones, so I went with coconut. Not to mention, coconut milk is thick and delicious and life changing. And, I threw the Mint Chocolate coconut milk in the cart too. They seriously earned the name “So Delicious”.

*(P.S., I’m going to now have to try a gingerbread latte with the whipped cream, since learning about the new spice flavored whipped cream and molasses drizzle on the Starbucks Melody site. Geez.)

  1. Mmmmmm, gingerbread laaaaaaaattes…..

    Usually, I’m a pretty boring coffee drinker. I like good quality coffee, which I take unsweetened with just a splash of milk. But there’s no WAY I can let the autumn season go by without at least one or two pumpkin lattes, or the holidays without a gingerbread latte. And now that I know they’re NEW AND IMPROVED with spiced whip? Oh, hells yeah. I might go get one this afternoon.

    And that homemade gingerbread syrup recipe looks interesting, too! Hmmmm…. :)
