It’s sweet and when you drink swee things it twigger’s your brain’s reward center and releases endorphins. If you are sensitive to things like that you might actually get a headache.

2.  After 15 minutes.

There are 12 teaspoons of sugar in your drink and that is gonna have your blood sugar rising. There are also 14 grans of fat from the milk and whipped cream and that slows that spike of energy and sugar rush down.

Your body is absorbing the drink and as that happened those triglycerides enter your blood stream. According to this article, over time those levels can clog your blood vessels and cause a rise in your cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease.
