Are you a Starbucks lover??
Did you know that some of your favourite drinks are a calorie punch?
I have done the research to show you which drink have the most calories and then provided ways in which to cut some calories while ordering these drinks.
|Nonfat caffe Mocha (no whip) – 170 cals|
|Coffee Frappuccino (blended coffee) – 180 cals|
|Caffee Mocha (without whipped cream) – Venti 2% milk – 340 cals|
|Cappuccino – Venti – 2% milk – 150 cals|
|Skinny Latte – Venti nonfat milk – 160 cals|
|White Hot Chocolate (without whipped cream) – Venti 2% milk – 380 cals|
|Caramel Apple Spice (without whipped cream) – Venti 360 cals|
|Tazo Chai Tea Latte – Venti 2% milk – 310 cals|
|Tazo Green Tea Latte – Venti 2% milk – 450 cals|
|Frappuccino Blended Coffee – Venti Whole milk – 350 cals|
|Mocha (without whipped Cream) – Venti Whole milk – 390 cals|
|Caramel (without Whipped Cream) – Venti whole milk – 370 cals|
As you will see, some of these drinks can really hinder one`s ability to lose fat if these drinks are consumed more than once a week.
The drinks I chose were based on the Venti size and using all 2% milk. To cut calories on these drinks, try opting for non-fat milk or Soy milk, or even dropping the size from the Venti to the Tall. Not only will you be saving calories on these drinks, you will be saving some hard earned cash.
|French Vanilla Cappuccino||250|
|Iced Cappuccino (cream)||250|
|Iced Cappuccino (milk)||250|
|Flavored Latte Supreme||180|
|Mocha Iced Latte||180|
|Flavored Iced Latte Supreme||170|
Much like Starbucks, most of the high calorie drinks are often the ones that are Large and usually with the extra milk or cream.
By getting a small size, you are cutting the calories in half
|Drink||20 oz calories||8 oz calories|
|White Hot Chocolate||490||230|
|Classic Hot Chocolate||490||190|
|Vanilla Bean Hot Chocolate||490||190|
|Sweet Apple Cider||290||120|
|Matcha Green Tea Latte||390||10 oz 240 cals|
|Green Tea Latte||380||12 oz 230 cals|
|Vanilla Bean Latte||370||12 oz 210n cals|
|Caramel Corretto||490||12 oz 250 cals|
|White Mocha||440||12 oz 90 cals|
|Iced Cafe Latte||24 oz 220 cals||12 oz 90 cals|
|Iced Moccaccino||24 oz 380 cals||12 oz 150 cals|
With Second Cup, the biggest calories happen when the drink sizes are over 20 oz. Opt for the smaller size and if you need milk or cream, stick with the 1% or skimmed milk.
Not only do these drinks have enough calories to hurt one’s fitness goals, it has just as much sugar as a can of pop. Try limiting these drinks to once a week as a treat.
