Can you stay on track with your health goals and still enjoy your favorite drinks?

Yes, it is possible to stay healthy and still enjoy your favorite low calorie drinks at Starbucks. Being the healthiest you can be while trying to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all your favorite indulgences in life. Being mindful and making conscious choices make a huge difference! Most calorie tracking apps like MyFitnessPal, have most of these drinks logged, so you can just search and add it to your food log of the day. This makes my life so much easier!

Here are a few tips when ordering your next Starbucks drink:

  • Choose lower calorie options: Starbucks offers several lower calorie options like their “Skinny” line of drinks, which are made with skim milk and sugar-free syrups. Opt for drinks like a Skinny Latte, Skinny Cappuccino, or a Skinny Mocha.
  •  Swap milk: If you prefer milk-based drinks, choose a lower calorie milk option like almond milk or non-fat milk.
  •  Limit added sugars: Many Starbucks beverages are high in added sugars. Check the nutritional information and choose drinks with fewer pumps of syrup or opt for sugar-free options.
  •  Skip whipped cream and sauces: Whipped cream and flavored sauces can add extra calories and sugar to your beverage. Request your drink without these toppings to reduce calories.
  •  Size matters: Consider ordering smaller sizes to reduce calorie intake. Choose a Tall instead of a Grande or Venti to enjoy your favorite drink in moderation.
