Top six ways to customize your favourite Starbucks drink

1. Select your milk: Customers can choose from whole, 2% milk or nonfat milk, or non-dairy alternatives such as soy, coconut and almond.

2. Ask for fewer pumps of syrup: To lessen the sweetness of your flavoured beverage, ask for fewer pumps of syrup, or select a sugar-free syrup, available in Vanilla or Cinnamon Dolce, or our Skinny Mocha Sauce.

3. Try a sweetener substitute such as Sweet’N Low®, Equal®, SPLENDA® or Stevia Blend from Whole Earth.

4. Ask for “less whip” or “no whip.”

5. Make it “Skinny”: Most handcrafted espresso and Frappuccino® blended beverages can be requested “skinny,” which means the beverage is made with nonfat milk, no whipped cream and a sugar-free syrup if available.

6. Add cold foam: this delicious and creamy treat is a perfect addition to an iced coffee or cold brew beverage.

Let me introduce you to the best Earl Grey Hot Chocolate ever! It is decadent. It is aromatic! And Earl Grey tea infusion gives the old classic hot chocolate a lovely new twist!

It is SO cold outside right now and it’s expected to snow overnight – two whole centimeters! I know right?! Crazy! So imagine yourself on a winter’s night with your coziest socks and a cup of hot cocoa (made from scratch), warming you up!

Mosquito Desserts Vancouver | Afternoon High Tea Gastown

Mosquito Desserts Vancouver | Afternoon High Tea Gastown

Mosquito Desserts & Champagne is one of my favorite locations for desserts in Vancouver. It is located on 32 Water Street in Gastown. The restaurant is elegant and chic. It makes for the perfect location for the best date night. Now that they have also introduced Afternoon High Tea on Sundays between 1 to 4 pm – there is another reason to simply indulge!

The space is designed by Ste. Marie Art + Design – think Kissa TantoSavio VolpeBotanist.

Proudly serving Namasthe Tea. I love the Vanilla Rooibos for its rich creamy sweet mouthfeel with honey nectar rooibos with long lingering sweet finish. It is the perfect organic, caffeine free tea. We also ordered the Echinachai Tea. This tea is a robust, full bodied black tea with cacao and raisin notes balanced with the bold spices of the masala, rounded heady Tulsi and a sweet vanilla finish.

Many people were saddened by the news that Basho Cafe was closing. Instead, Yama Cafe reopened and kept the essence of Basho. Taking over is Chef Yama – a former employee. Most of the original menu and spirit remains. I came here a while ago with a few foodie friends for a little treat.

The menu remains focused on afternoon sweet treats, coffee and tea lattes, rice bowls, salads, bread and soup. Tuna Tataki bowls are still $14 – an expensive option on food choices.

Yama is a cute cafe and a good hang out place to catch up with friends. Prices are pretty expensive for the small portions but it is a good alternative to the everyday coffee and croissant pastries.
