6 Easy Ways To Cut Calories In Your Go-To Starbucks Drink

Sometimes you just get in the mood for a White Chocolate Mocha, and there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to one! But ordering the 470-calorie drink on the reg really shouldn’t be a habit. If you can’t shake the craving for a Starbucks drink that’s on the less healthy side, here are six ways to cut calories and not feel like you’re drinking dirt.

Go for iced drinks

This one is easy (especially during this heatwave!). Adding ice to a drink replaces some of the milk, which means you’re saving calories.

Switch to sugar-free syrup

I just found out that there are a few pumps of syrup in a Starbucks Iced Coffee, even if you don’t ask for it. So definitely make sure to either ask for no syrup or switch to sugar-free. You’ll save 20 calories and 5g sugar per pump.

Don’t get whip

Whipped cream is really good with coffee, but maybe don’t get it all the time. Holding the whip will save you up to 100 calories and 11g of fat.

Add an espresso shot

Yes, more caffeine! Adding a shot of espresso replaces an ounce of milk (and gives you an extra energy boost).

Choose non-fat milk

This one is a no-brainer. According to Starbucks, you can save up to 120 calories and 15g of fat by opting for skim milk.

Ask for extra foam

When there’s extra foam in a drink, it cuts calories because the milk isn’t as thick as it would be when just added itself to a drink.
