Half Cup Water, Half Cup Iconic Immunity Coffee Mocha Protein Shake, 1/4 Cup Folgers Vanilla Cappuccino Powder, 1/2TB Espresso Sugar. Microwaved 3 minutes in glass measuring cup, powders added last 1 minute. Okay, but it didn't get as hot in the glass and still not loving the chocolate. I've got their vanilla protein drink, so will probably like that better.

Amazon messed up my order, so I got a free Silly Cow Peppermint Hot Chocolate. It's okay, but hot cocoa is really thin these days since they took out the powdered milk to make it allergy friendly. I'll have to try making it with whole milk to see if I can get it creamy like the old days. I added instant espresso to it.

I had another Venti Iced Green Tea Lemonade, yesterday afternoon. It tasted so good, but I think it was a bit too much for me.
I was driving around doing errands, with the windows open. it was really hot outside. I was not using the AC because I wanted to save gas. I think the heat got to me. I was not myself when I got home. I was so tired, no energy at all, and cold with the AC on...

I am going to cut back to the Grande size with light ice.

I don't know how true it is but I heard on the news that the engine heats up more if you do not turn on the a/c in very hot weather. They said the saving on gas is minimal so next time don't take a chance and use the a/c to be more comfortable. Hope you're feeling better today. 🤗

Dark roast black coffee this morning and getting ready to have another. The weather is picture perfect today with milder temps and much less humidity so I'll have my second cup out on the patio.

Tried that Silly Cow Peppermint Hot Chocolate in whole lactose free milk with 1/2TB Pilon Instant Espresso. I still don't like chocolate. I guess that's it for me, no more trying chocolate. I give up. I don't really like the Amaretto either, but I'll play around with it next week. Maybe it will grow on me. So far I only like Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, and Cookie Butter. I can't remember if I like Caramel, so I'll try that one again....

Mixed Oat Milk and Cashew Milk. I never thought to mix my milks before, pretty interesting flavor! I like it.
1/4 Cup Caffe D'Vita Amaretto Cappuccino Powder, 1/2TB Pilon Instant Espresso, 1/2TB Barred Woods Vermont Maple Sugar.
Much better! It definitely needed the maple sugar to cut the booze note! Microwaved 3 minutes in a big mug, so it didn't overflow!
