Low Calorie Choices at Starbucks

Updated on January 25, 2010

 

Lowest Calorie Drinks at Starbucks

Research has shown that we do not get the same satiety from beverages as we do from food containing an equal amount of calories.  If you are trying to lose weight, it’s difficult to do so if you are consuming calories from high calorie beverages on a regular basis

If you frequentStarbucks, you should be aware that their menu is full of drinks that could replace the calories of an entire meal.  If you drink one Venti® Caramel Frappuccino® Blended Coffee with whipped cream daily, you add 182,500 calories to your year.  This breaks down to 52 pounds per year!   

There are a few things you can do to make your lower the calories in your Starbucks drink. 

·        Avoid the highest calorie choices from Starbucks, which includes: Frappuccinos®,  Apple Chai Infusion, Iced Caffè Mocha with whole milk ,  Caramel Apple Spice,   Caramel Brulee Crème with whole milk and whipped cream, Hot Chocolate.  

·        Avoid ordering the Venti or “large” size. 

·        Ask for your drink to be made with skim milk and no whipped cream, or make it a “skinny”. 

·        Opt for one of our sugar-free syrups: vanilla, hazelnut and cinnamon dolce or other sugar substitutes such as Splenda®. You can also ask for less syrup in your beverage if you opt for a standard syrup.
