Starbucks Vivanno- Chocolate Banana

Photobucket
I am starting to think this is one of those weeks where maybe I shouldn't try anything new...
Starbucks recently launched the Vivanno line- basically that translates into spiffy smoothies. They come in two flavors Chocolate Banana (the one I tried) and Orange Mango Banana.

Personally, the Vivanno reminded me more of a meal replacement shake then a proper smoothie. The chocolate banana was chaulky because of the whey powder that is used to make the drink. The chocolate it self tastes ok. It reminded me more of cocoa powder then say chocolate milk or even just chocolate syrup. The banana portion is just bad. It's not that chemical banana doesn't appeal (a peel?) to me but...

Stick with the coffee!!
