Lowest Calorie Drinks at Starbucks

Lowest Calorie Drinks at Starbucks

I know me and my sister Jackie and I hit up Starbucks once in a while when we are traveling out of town. Partly because we don’t have one in our town and partly because we needs something to pick us up while driving in a car with 2 infants and 2 toddlers LOL. No seriously, We always start out the day with Shakeology which TRULY helps give us energy to keep up with the kiddos all day BUT getting a treat at starbucks is fun too!

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.
