Twin Cups Welcomes Marathon Runner Kristyne Hastie, a “Doubler”

When Kristyne is not juggling her double major at UCSB in philosophy and sociology, she is also doubling her other skills as a barista and frozen yogurt designer. At Twin Cups drive up coffee and frozen yogurt bar this week Kristyne created a new special flavored yogurt milk shake, blending vanilla yogurt with espresso and Oreo’s.

In Kristyne’s spare time, she is training for the Nike Women’s Marathon held in San Francisco which supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Previously Kristyne ran two half-marathons. Kristine enjoys Twin Cups live active culture frozen yogurt, shakes and smoothies as a healthy snack prior to training for her marathon. “It’s great to have a treat that tastes just like ice cream and that is actually healthy for you. The fact that the yogurt is 100% fat free and only has 120 calories is shocking, since it tastes so good. It’s even gluten free!” said Kristyne.

Kristyne also works at Pathpoint (previously Work Training Program). Pathpoint supports adults with developmental disabilities in becoming active, positive members of society. Kristyne is interested in attending law school after graduating and pursuing a career as a child or disabled persons advocate.

Kristyne’s favorite morning snack at Twin Cups is a vanilla-peach mango yogurt with a shot of granola blended in with her morning soy hazelnut latte. Come visit Kristyne at Twin Cups and get a glimpse of her in action, as she helps clients create their own blends. Twin Cups is open Monday - Friday 6:30am - 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 7:00-am-5:00pm. Don’t forget you don’t need to get out of your car with Twin Cups window service. In a hurry?
