starbucks vivanno

So I think I blogged about Starbucks' new drink Vivanno previously and also about how I tried their Orange Mango Banana Blend. Well today I finally got to try their Banada Chocolate Blend. I was in a rush to get to the doctor's office yesterday afternoon, but needed nourishment, so I decided to swing by Stabucks and pay my lots of money for a drink.

According to Starbucks' website: The simple ingredient list for both beverages includes:
• one whole banana
• a proprietary whey protein and fiber powder
• choice of milk
• and ice

I wish I had known to ask for low-fat milk, or that they had asked me! Or that you could add a shot of espresso (not that I would have, but it would have been nice to have known that was an option).

Anywho, it wasn't bad. Not as chocolatey as I had hoped, but I guess it has to be healthy still. It did make me feel good that there was at least 1 serving of fruit in there. Amazingly enough it did fill me up pretty good and I wasn't hungry until late last night.

Here's the nutritional information of the Banana Chocolate Vivanno (from their website):
