I know you’ve seen me on a health kick lately. It’s a lifestyle change that I’ve embraced for almost four months now. And so far, I am loving it! That’s why I’m excited to find out that Starbucks’ new beverage and food items this July also have elements of health in them. These new beverages and food items will be available starting on July 25 but here’s a preview so you’ll know what to try out first.

The beverage is topped with creamy milk foam and then sprinkled with a generous topping of crunchy granola and chunks of raspberry-pink, dried berries.

These drinks are generally lighter because its topped with creamy milk foam instead of the usual whipped cream.
