Starbucks Holiday Drinks Breakdown


When you're out running holiday errands, do you stop at Starbucks for a little pick-me-up? Let me tell you: Those cups are full of more than holiday cheer; some of the drinks pack in an amazing amount of calories and fat into a 16 ounce cup. Not surprisingly, that Eggnog Latte is the worst offender, but thankfully it doesn't come with whipped cream. Even without the extra dollop of saturated fat, this holiday latte contains almost 25 percent of your daily caloric intake.

Fit's Tips: Of course, I think you should order your espresso drinks with non-fat milk and no whip, since this cuts a serious amount of calories off most drinks. If you are looking to cut back on caffeine avoid the Peppermint Mocha since it has an additional 25 mg of caffeine. If you are cutting back on sugar, you can order your Gingerbread Latte with sugar free syrup, or try it with a half pump of syrup.
