Clean version of Starbucks Pistachio Rose Mocha with Cookies – Secret Menu

 

Does clean mean boring?

I went into Starbucks and was excited to hear about this new drink for February a “Pistachio and Rose Mocha”. I love new exciting flavours but I knew this drink although exciting would be loaded with crazy sugar and in the end make me feel rotten. The lovely barista allowed me to taste the syrup and I was surprised that it was not a heavy rose taste but more of a sweet cherry.

I was a little disappointed and started thinking how I could make this marriage of unique flavours into a clean version but with more flavour kick. So I thought homemade Pistachio nut milk with rose water over my espresso and matching rose and pistachio cookies to dunk into your pastel green coffee with pink whipped cream. I was so excited all this gorgeousness and it is super healthy leaving your taste buds and stomach happy! Give this version a try! Let me know what you think.
