They say that if you buy ice blended drinks on a daily basis, you’ll gain a lot of weight. I guess that may be true since a lot of these ice blended drinks have high sugar content. In my case, I’m scared of this possibility. I love going to coffee places during lunch and even after work. I go Coffee Bean or to other cafes during lunch since I just want to relax and chill in a place that’s far (but not too far) from the office. If I’m on a diet though, I go to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. This is what I order.
I order the Genmaicha Green Tea. Coffee Bean gives you a bag of this tea selection and steeps it in hot water for 3-5 minutes. I like Genmaicha over all the tea flavors that Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has since I love the “nutty” scent that this tea has. Also, Green Tea is the tea to take if you want to cleanse your body and raise your metabolism. If you want something that has milk and if you are more inclined to get tea latte, order the Moroccan Mint Tea Latte. Don’t forget to ask for the No Sugar Added powder. You just need to add Php 20.
If you are tempted to get desserts, try the Guilt-free Chocolate Cheesecake. It’s actually one of my favorite desserts. It is healthier than the other desserts. It has no sugar added.
These are my suggestions if you want to maintain your figure but you want to frequently visit a nearby Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
