Come On, Get Frappy!
Love Starbucks' Tazo Green Tea Frap but hate the silly stats that come along with it? Check out our latest masterpiece...

Ingredients:
4 oz. light vanilla soymilk
1 oz. Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
2 tsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1 heaping tsp. matcha green tea powder (found in tea shops, at select markets, and online)
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)
1 1/2 cups crushed ice

2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip 



Directions:
Combine matcha green tea powder and powdered creamer with 2 oz. of warm water, and stir until powders have completely dissolved. Place this mixture in a blender, along with the soymilk, syrup, sweetener, and ice. Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds. Pour into a glass, and top with the Reddi-wip. Enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING

Starbucks' Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Crème
Starbucks' Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Crème

Floppuccino!
Starbucks' Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Crème is annoying. Why? Because people think just 'cuz something is made with green tea it's automatically low in calories and diet-friendly, and this cup of chilly green goo is anything but! It's actually got more fat and way more calories than the very decadent-sounding Honey Frappuccino Blended Crème (but trust us -- you don't wanna go there either!). This green tea fiasco is weighed down with milk, sugary melon syrup (blech!), and a ginormous serving of fat-packed whipped cream. And does The 'Bucks have a light version of this frozen foe on their menu? Nope. Luckily, if you crave a rich 'n tasty green tea concoction, you can indulge without wasting close to 500 calories -- just blend up HG's Green Tea Crème Swappuccino. It too is green, frozen, delicious, and whipped-cream-topped. But it has just 75 calories. Hooray for us!
