Upgrading Your StarbucksSep 10, 2022
5 tips to make your #starbucks coffee run better for you
❌ Nix the whip! If you HAVE to have it, ask for light :) This can save you up to 110 calories!
🐮 Ask for skim milk. Most of their traditional recipes use whole or 2%. By asking for skim milk instead, you can be cutting down on the fat while still getting in some PROTEIN :)
🍬 Ask for less syrup. The White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha has 4 pumps of syrup! WHAT?! Each pump is about 25 calories of sugar and carbs. By asking for half or even 1 less than the traditional recipe, you can save lots of calories and added sugar.
🙅♀️ Skip the drizzle and sprinkles. All of these are just more added sugar, so by opting out; you save calories and carbs :)
🥤If you want to splurge on an original recipe, opt for a smaller size and get it the way it comes. You will still enjoy it and savor it, but sizing up can add 200 calories :)
The traditional Pumpkin Spice Latte has 390 calories - Maybe next time try the pumpkin cream cold brew! This will give you similar vibes for SIGNIFICANTLY fewer calories! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE RECIPE REMAKES!
Starbucks drinks are the bomb, I know! But many of these have a TON of sugar. If you get these a few times, no biggie. Enjoy it!
BUT if you are stopping in to grab one every day, you may want to look at how you can make it healthier :)
How do you modify your drink?!
Happy Pumpkin Spice Season! ☕️
