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
