What to Drink at Starbucks and what NOT to Drink
You’ll notice I didn’t say eat. Unfortunately, most people who frequent Starbucks end up drinking a whole meal (consuming a meal’s worth of calories via one beverage. Yikes!) However, there IS a way to avoid consuming an entire meal while still getting your caffeine fix.
The trick is in the selection. I’ve scanned through their entire menu to seek out the healthiest beverages. Was it easy to do? Well, not exactly.
Here are the best Coffee options
|Dark roast||0 calories, 0 sugar|
|Espresso shot||5 calories, 0 sugar|
|Espresso Macchiato||10 calories, 0 sugar|
|Espresso Con Panna (whipped cream)||30 calories, <1g of sugar|
|Caffé Americano (espresso w/ hot water)||15 calories, 0 sugar|
|Iced Caffe Americano (same as above on Ice)||15 calories, 0 sugar|
(For taste, ask them to add whole milk and bring your own Stevia packets)
Here are the best Tea options (all have 0 cal and 0 sugars)
- Zen Tea
- Awake Tea
- Green Tea
- Earl Gey
- Passion (this is my favorite)
(For taste you can add Stevia packets and enjoy hot or cold)
These 2 should be a rare treat but they are far better than most beverages on their menu.
|Iced Skinny Mocha||100 calories, 8g sugar, 9g protein|
|Iced Skinny Flavored Latte||80 calories, 10g sugar, 7g protein|
Most drinks on the menu carry 200-400 calories and around 40-50g of sugar. There’s a lot more than just coffee. You can make a good choice here to lose the weight, keep it off, and feel great!
