Coffee-less creations by baristas, for newer customers.

Summer brings a craving for ice cream to cool off from the over-bearing summer heat. With school being out and parents trying to spend more time with their children, a wave of new-Starbucks users looking to try something new. The majority of them are not coffee drinkers and because, “Starbucks is only a coffee shop and I don’t drink coffee” decide not to order anything. However, a combination of meeting both needs of a cool, refreshing drink that has coffee-less flavors that can satisfy both parents and children is known as the Frappuccino. Here are a few Frappuccino’s that are not on the standard menu that myself and other partners have created and/or perfected, especially for the summer months.

The Neapolitan Ice Cream Frappuccino

This is one of the most complicated drinks, but also serves one of the sweetest rewards. Order this as a strawberries and cream Frappuccino made with vanilla sweet cream instead of whole milk, and blend in two scoops of strawberry inclusions. Ask the barista to layer your Frappuccino with pumps of milk chocolate at the bottom of the cup (2 for a tall, 3 for a grande, 4 for a venti), next about an inch of whip cream on top, finally add the strawberry puree to the top. This drink is sure to bring back child hood memories of the neighborhood ice cream truck!

The Oreo/Cookies and Cream Frappuccino

This one is the simplest to order by far! Order a double chocolaty-chip Frappuccino, but sub white mocha for mocha. If you and chocolate have an intimate relationship, ask for extra mocha drizzle inside the cup and on top of the whip cream! Whether you are an Oreo dunker, or a divide and conqueror, ordering this drink will definitely have the cookie crumbling in your favor!

The Snickerdoodle Frappuccino

Do you miss the Christmas and Holiday season and all of its delicious treat? Then this will be your Christmas in July present. Order a Crème based Frappuccino, with cinnamon dolce syrup, soy milk, extra caramel drizzle inside and out, extra cinnamon dolce topping inside and out, and whip cream on top. If this beverage is to sweet or you need an extra caffeine boost, try this affagato style. (Affagato style translates to putting a shot of espresso on top of the Frappuccino to blend with the beverage as it sinks to the bottom of the drink.) This one is so good Santa may just make a summer time visit!

As summer continues to get hotter, I encourage you to go to your local Starbucks, order one of these beverages and have a discussion with one of the baristas. Ask them their political opinions. Question where they are at in life. Be adventurous and ask If they’ve created any drinks that they’ve wanted to showcase or suggest for you. I challenge you to interact with your baristas, because believe it or not, they want to get to know you, too!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
