New Starbucks drink fit for a fashionista




Picture it: It's 9 a.m. and you've taken the day off because you're sick and (cough, cough) it just so happens to be the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You need nutrition, you need energy, you need strength to wrestle those pair of Kate Spade espadrilles out of the hands of a wedge-thirsty shopper.

Look no further than Starbucks' newest drink du jour: the Vivanno. It's like a super smoothie. It's also Starbucks' newest foray into the healthy drink realm.

Chocked full of natural ingredients, the Vivanno comes in two flavors: Orange Mango Banana and Banana Chocolate. Both are made with fresh fruit and juice, your choice of milk, whey protein and fiber powder. Chocvivanno_print_2

The mango and chocolate Vivannos clock in at 250 and 270 calories respectively, so you don't have to worry about going up a dress size during your shopping expedition. And with the natural goods in this drink, medical nutritionist Sheila Dean says the Vivanno won't give you that terrible sluggish blood sugar drop that you might experience with other energy drinks. So you can shop till you DON'T drop.

And if that's not enough, you can score a Vivanno for FREE (our favorite word here at Deal Divas) every Tuesday starting July 29 through August 12. Just bring your gym membership card to Starbucks or register your Starbucks card at

You heard it here first. The Vivanno hits Tampa Bay's Starbucks tomorrow! Sip Hard, Shop Harder.
