Walking into a Starbucks and looking at the menu, it’s impossible not to crave their delectable, whipped cream-topped items. Sometimes you’re just there to get some caffeine, but other times it feels right to just treat yourself to a super-sweet drink to brighten your day. You weren’t trying to start your day with a blood sugar bomb. But a pastry and a latte later, you’re in sugar crash city.
