    I'm curious as to why Starbucks got rid of whole milk. By default their lattes are 2%. Everyone is attached to this idea that fat is bad. Wonder what it would take people to realize this isn't so.

      As far as I know you can still request whole milk, or even cream, at the 'bux. I wouldn't know for sure myself as I'm allergic to whey.

        I'm also curious, what makes heavy whipping cream better than milk in my americanos? Aren't the carb count practically the same? Or is heavy cream just overall better for me?

          More fat, less sugar=better.

                You know what's dreamy in coffee when I make it at home? Kara coconut cream. It's thick creamy crack. Just divine.


                (I do have a soy mocha anywhere from 2-6 times a month. I know it's not primal, and I'm trying to cut way back by only letting myself have a coffee drink rather than espresso when I have a free drink card. I don't really eat any other legumes anymore, I can't have dairy, and sometimes I just want one, dammit. I have left feedback on Sbux site requesting alternate milks, like rice, but no go so far).

                    whipping cream is practically 0 carb. There's 0.5g carb per tablespoon. Milk is 12g for a cup, HWC is 6g. Drink HWC, it's delicious!

                          I but it at my local Asian market. I haven't found it in chain stores.

                            I used to order ice lattes all the time. Almost $4 if I remember correctly? Then I realized that I could order a tall iced doppio (2 shots of espresso over ice) and then add my own milk from the stuff at the end of the counter. I ended up saving, like, $2 per drink?

                            Now I request that they put heavy cream in it and I don't get charged extra. The baristas were confused about what I wanted exactly at first but now they know me so it's no big deal. The cream has it's own sweetness. I just add cinnamon and I'm a happy camper.

                            But I recently started making my own espresso at home with my bialetti stove top espresso maker and I do add vanilla extract from time to time. Now I only go to starbucks when I'm craving something horrible, work is treating me badly and I want to treat myself. I like my coffee way better than starbucks anyways.
