  1. Hi I love these! What would you order to make them a venti, how much would you add?

    • Typically I would just add more milk to the drink to make a venti! I try to keep the amount of syrup and coffee the same!

  2. I have been getting the Caramel Iced Coffee version so goood! Do you by chance know how many carbs and sugar it has?

  3. For the caramel macchiato fraccupino where it says substitute almond milk what does that mean so I know what to tell them when I order it

  4. Hey just so everyone is aware the Light base for frapps was discontinued a few years ago.

  5. Thank you….these sound delicious!!
    I love hot drinks (hot latte). Could you make a post about low calorie hot drinks from Starbucks?

  6. I’m so happy to see this post! I just love @themacrobarista Alex rocks and so do you!!! I’m loving your posts.

  7. Great recipes! I hadn’t thought about getting the strawberry infusion but will give it a go next time! I usually do the 2 pumps of each SF Vanilla / SF Cinnamon Dolce as well… 🙂

  8. I was looking at my starbucks app and noticed the cold foam cold brew is a 128 cal with 28g carbs- do you do something to modify that before you make the healthy French vanilla drink? I don’t see how it could only be 60 cals but I want to try it. Thanks!

    • I do modify it! In the post I write out how to order to make it 60 cal!
