Your favorite Starbucks drinks in 150 calories or less
Hold the whip, honey
Jan 3, 2018
I don’t frequent Starbucks, but whenever I do, I always order the same thing: White Chocolate Mocha modified to 200 calories. But since it’s a new year, I’m trading my usual for something with fewer calories. Frappuccinos are nice, but the 400-calorie drinks won’t give you anything except sugar crash (and bad skin). This 2018, forego the coffee chain’s popular drinks and revert to these more forgiving classics.
Note: These drinks are based on the Starbucks Tall size (12 ounces).
Caffè Latte; espresso with steamed milk and a light layer of foam: 150 calories (two percent milk)
Caramel Macchiato; freshly steamed milk with vanilla-flavored syrup and espresso, topped with caramel drizzle: 150 calories (switch to nonfat milk)
Cappuccino; espresso with a thick layer of foam: 90 calories (two percent milk)
Coffee Frappuccino Blended Beverage; Starbucks coffee blended with nonfat milk and ice: 90 calories
Green Tea Latte; lightly sweetened matcha with steamed milk: 140 calories (switch to nonfat milk)
Iced Green Tea Latte; lightly sweetened matcha with steamed milk and ice: 120 calories (nonfat milk)
Iced Chai Latte; black tea infused with cinnamon, clove, and other spices, mixed with steamed milk and ice: 150 calories (switch to nonfat milk)
Teavana Shaken Iced Black Tea; lightly sweetened black tea with ice: 30 calories
