It’s been twenty years since Starbucks released their first holiday cup which every year marks the beginning of the holiday season and festivities. Along with the much anticipated holiday cups, it is always exciting to see what limited edition drinks Starbucks will come out with. This year Starbucks has introduced the limited time edition Christmas Tree Frappuccino. The base of the drink is a Peppermint Mocha Creme Frappuccino, the Christmas “tree” portion is made with Matcha whipped cream. The tree is decorated with a “garland” of caramel and candied cranberries and is topped off with a candied strawberry ornament, representing a tree topper. Although it seems unusual for a holiday drink to be frozen and the combination of flavors to be a bit random, consumer feedback has been positive. Consumers reported that the combination of flavors offers a feel-good holiday spin which makes sipping on a frozen drink in the freezing cold well worth it. If you’re wondering about the calories, ordering a size grande (medium) will leave you with an additional 420 calories to work off at the gym this holiday season.

Starbucks is not the only chain to release exclusive holiday flavors and it won’t take you visiting a fast food chain to pack in the calories over this holiday season. Tis the season of hot cocoa and apple pie and it’s needless to say that the holiday season presents a real challenge for your weight loss goals. If you’re wondering how you’re going to be able to indulge in all of this season's goodies without packing on the pounds read about different supplements you can take that can help your body lose calories with minimal efforts.

Realistically, the holidays are a time when you are busy spending time with your family and engaging in fun activities, not at the gym. There are many natural options that can help you cut back on calories without compromising your waistline. One of the most popular and well-received supplements we have seen on the market is Garcinia Cambogia. Garcinia Cambogia is a natural plant that is extracted to help naturally support weight loss. It works by preventing the formation of new fat forming and by acting as an appetite suppressant which can come in handy when you’re met with a variety of options at the Christmas dinner table. It offers you a unique way to cut back on calories without making changes to your lifestyle.

This Christmas season, you can make it easier for yourself to indulge in holiday treats like the Christmas Tree Frappuccino without adding to your waistline.
