I occasionally miss my chubby indulgences. One of those was a Frappuccino from Starbucks.
Now, of course, iced green tea or -- if I'm feeling decadent and flush -- a decaf latte or iced latte are my go-to drinks at chain coffeeshops.
I like to frequent the non-chains when I can, though. For one thing, they can make things for me that Starbucks won't. Of course, I might have to cajole them a bit.
A few days ago, I talked a local coffeeshop into making me a blended latte that I could have. They didn't want to do a drink with just espresso, milk and ice: "It won't taste very good. We have to add some kind of powder." Believe me, I finally persuaded them. I will like it.
And I did.
