Starbucks Summer Specials: Midnight Mocha and Tea-ramisu Frappuccino

Starbucks welcomes the summer season with two specially created frappuccino blended beverage from April 11 to June 4, 2018- Tea-ramisu and Midnight Mocha Frappuccino. These two blended drinks will surely make you #GetTheFeels of summer.


Tea-ramisu Frappuccino is a delightful blend of creamy cheesecake milk with Japanese Matcha and topped with whipped cream and green tea cookie bits. This sublime-tasting drink is the perfect blended beverage when you need that extra energy summer boost. Quite refreshing and makes me think of fluffy cheesecake.


On the other hand, Midnight Mocha Frappuccino has a more intense flavor blended from rich, bittersweet black cocoa powder, coffee, java chipped with whipped cream and cocoa powder. The combination of flavors makes it velvety and truly wakes up the senses. I also detect a hint of berries that makes this drink utterly delicious.


Aside from the summer blended beverage, Starbucks also has some yummy baked goodies that greatly compliments summer. Here are my two favorites:  The Chocolate Babka (non-Kosher) which has its origins from Eastern Europe. This is a soft and chocolatey sweet bread filled with Belgian chocolate. Best eaten warm so that you can savor the oozing chocolate.


And the Pistachio Dome which is actually a white chocolate mousse with creamy pistachio, with layers of vanilla and chocolate cake topped with whipped cream and pistachio nuts. Yummy!


And because its summer, Columbia Huila is the highlighted Starbucks Single Origin series. This coffee has some fruity notes and milky chocolate sweetness.


Of course, summer is not complete without some Starbucks merch that comes mostly in lovely pastel colors.

    2. No, keto is a no sugar diet. We can take anything subbed with stevia or equal gold or erythirol though. :)

  2. I'm not fond of drinking coffee so I rarely go to Starbucks. But I like their cakes and pastries. The Pistachio Dome looks yummy!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
