6 Starbucks Drinks Anyone Who Avoids Caffeine Absolutely MUST Know About

Like most people, I am IN LOVE with Starbucks. The food, the drinks, the ambiance, the REWARDS! But unlike the majority of my peers, I don't drink coffee or even caffeine for the matter.

At first, it was difficult. No lattes, macchiatos, refreshers, cold brews, the list goes on and on AND ON! So I was forced to look into the menu and found drinks to order for every mood which contains ZERO caffeine! Here are three Starbucks drinks you NEED to order if you are looking for that caffeine-free option.

1. Iced Passion Teas

The Passion Tea and Passion Tea Lemonade are incredible caffeine-free options!

Pro Tip: Add in strawberry puree for an extra element of sweetness.

2. Creme Frappuccinos

While Starbucks has Frappuccinos with coffee added, they have a few without. Check out the Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Cookie Crumble, Caramel Ribbon Crunch, Strawberry, Double Chocolatey Chip, Vanilla Bean, AND White Chocolate flavors!

Pro Tip: Customize your flavor by changing the sauces, syrups, and types of milk in your Frappuccino.

You can also blend in banana if your heart desires.

3. Blended Strawberry Lemonade

This is the perfect mixture between a refresher and Frappuccino. PLUS, it doesn't have any caffeine!

Pro Tip: You can blend in dried fruit or a variety of juices (apple, guava blend, peach blend).

4. Steamed Milk aka "Steamers"

I'll be honest, my initial thought was ... EW. However, this is basically any latte, just without the espresso.

You can personalize this to your own taste, changing the milk, sauces/syrups, and toppings ... ultimately creating the perfect hot beverage!

Pro Tip: Get in the fall mood and add 1-3 pumps of Pumpkin Sauce, nutmeg, cinnamon, and 1-2 pumps of classic syrup for a caffeine-free PSL.

5. Steamed Apple Juice

Either try the basic steamed apple juice or caramel apple spice drinks for the PERFECT Fall drink!

Pro Tip: If you want a mock apple cider, add cinnamon and nutmeg to the basic steamed apple juice.

6. Hot Herbal Teas

Starbucks continues to change its menu when it comes to hot caffeine-free teas.

But the Mint Majesty and Peach Tranquility have been lasting favorites!

Pro Tip: The hot teas are ... HOT! Ask for your tea in a larger cup size with a tall cup of ice on the side. This will help you to make it room temperature while also enjoy the full cup of tea.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
