As women, we all care about what we put in our bodies. Who wants to spend 400 calories on one small coffee drink?
Well, no more. If you're not a frequent Starbucks go-er, you may not know that you can get a lot of their drinks "skinny". This means they use Skim (or Fat Free) milk, sugar-free syrup, and no whip on top. It can also mean the difference between 400 calories and 40 calories. A huge difference!
Today, I thought I'd show you a comparison of some of the drinks you can get "skinny". And, for those that doubt, most taste basically the same as the regular drinks.
We'll start with my new go-to: the Caramel Macchiato. I always get this skinny.
Iced Caramel Macchiato = 210
Iced Skinny Caramel Macchiato = 80
Iced Mocha = 320
Iced Skinny Mocha = 100
Mocha Frappuccino = 400
Mocha Frappuccino Light = 130
And did you know some of the bottled Starbucks drinks also come in Light?
Bottled Mocha Frappuccino = 180
Bottled Mocha Frappuccino Light = 100
Bottled Iced Coffee + Milk = 110
Bottled Low Calorie Iced Coffee + Milk = 50
Doubleshot Espresso = 140
Doubleshot Light Espresso = 70
Of course, once in awhile, we all need the creamy goodness of a little dollop of whip.
So, guess what? There's fat free whip available!
Next time you're at Starbucks: choose skinny.
