If you’re like me, you LOVE Starbucks. Seriously, this caveman needs his caffeine. But their liquid deliciousness can add on the calories fast. Instead of getting that Venti Mocha with extra syrup and extra whipped cream, try these drinks instead. Losing weight and staying healthy will always feel better than that drink.
What’s The Best Choice?
That would be the Brewed Black Coffee or Tea. The coffee has just 5 calories(plus 330mg of caffeine), and the tea has ZERO!
Avoid: 16-oz. Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha: Espresso, milk, white chocolate flavored sauce, and peppermint flavored syrup on ice, topped with sweetened whipped cream: 500 calories
Instead: 16-oz. Iced Skinny Mocha: Bittersweet skinny mocha sauce, espresso, and nonfat milk served over ice: 100 cal
Avoid: 16-oz. Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino Blended Crème: A creamy blend of rich mocha-flavored sauce, chocolaty chips, milk, and ice, topped with sweetened whipped cream and mocha drizzle: 410 calories
Instead: 16-oz. Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended Beverage: Coffee with rich mocha sauce blended with nonfat milk and ice: 130 calories
Avoid: White Hot Chocolate: A traditional hot chocolate beverage made with white chocolate and steamed milk topped with whipped cream: 360 calories
Instead: Hot Chocolate with Nonfat Milk — and skip the whipped-cream: 240 calories – Not a great option, but if you’re going to splurge, go with this.
