If you go to Starbucks website and click on the tab at the top for Nutrition you can find a list of all the beverages that they sell and what the nutrition count is! I found a few that arent loaded with calories. Doesnt hurt to do a little research so you have an idea what to order when you step up there. I find Starbucks a little overwhelming, never knew what to order. This info certainly helps!!! With Fall coming and cooler weather we may all be looking for something warm and comforting to drink, Hope this helps!

Ooh...thanks, Kim! We don't have a Starbucks nearby, but when I go to my budget meeting on the 16th, the hotel is across from getting something there is always a treat for me! Now I can plan ahead.

I LOVE cafe Americanos with soy milk.

10-02-2007, 04:12 PM
What is a cafe Americanos ??? I dont know much about coffee drinks other than plain! LOL

10-02-2007, 04:25 PM
A cafe Americano is shots of espresso with water. Rich, bold coffee flavor without the expense and calories of fancy drinks!

10-02-2007, 07:53 PM
Ahhh, that sounds like my kind of drink!

I love Starbucks, particularily the Chai lattes. I'm definately going to check out the website and hope that my favourite indulgence isn't too bad if I get it made with skim milk!

Ok Jullian, What is the best thing for us to get and how do we count it???
Thanks for your help!

any drinks that have nonfat or soy milk and sugar free syrup are great and on plan. :)

my newest obsession is iced green tea lattes with sugar free vanilla instead of the melon syrup...and soymilk of course. they are wonderful. an aquired taste, but great nonetheless! (kristen if you read this..try them with sugar free vanilla instead of melon--it's great that way and you can use the full pumps of syrup and not feel guilty since it's sugar free vanilla! :) )

Yeah Jillian.. my Starbucks Sweetheart!!
I've been ordering Pumpkin Lattes, non fat and half sweet :)

10-03-2007, 10:30 AM
Ok what does half sweet mean? I've been drinking them too, just non fat, no whipped cream.

10-03-2007, 11:01 AM
Kimmy! If I order one of the flavoured lattes, green tea, pumpkin etc they use a syrup so I get half a pump instead of full.. a wee bit of flavor and less calories!

10-03-2007, 11:04 AM
Ahhh, thank you Kristen, I'll have to remember that! I could become addicted to those Pumpkin Spice Lattes! LOL The calorie count is WAY lower than the one at Panera Bread, It was like 400 calories I think!

Tina, There are actually places without a starbucks on every other block in the USA????? Wow... I guess we are too close to Seattle here. I have to admit that my favorite is the drive through one though... except there is always a long line.

The iced passion tea is very low cal and tasty, but more of a summer thing. I just get the brewed coffee if it is cold out. A short one is only 1.40 and I think it has less than 10 calories in it. They keep raising their prices!

Barbara, I was thinking the same thing!!

I was addicted to the iced coffe/unsweetened with a splash of NF milk this it's back to sugar free fat free vanilla lattes-that is when I haven't had my dairy yet....

We don't have a Starbucks here, either. In fact, I only know of 2 places in town where you can get a latte, and neither of them offer anything that is sugar free. I never thought of asking for 1/2 pump of syrup, that is a good idea.

10-04-2007, 01:12 PM
you mentioned iced green tea lattes (which i LOVE).. however, my only concern with them was that you use that green tea powder.. how do we know whats in the powder and if its going to hurt us?? i assume powder=sugary. worse than the syrup. let me know :)

10-04-2007, 10:36 PM
so what does the green tea latte with sugar free vanilla and non fat milk count as?

10-05-2007, 09:42 AM
well, i looked at the nutrition info on the website and looked up how many grams of sugar are in one pump of flavored syurp and then i times that by the number of pumps in a tall (which are 3) and then i subtracted that from the grams of sugar in a green tea latte and then that's what the grams of sugar would be without the syrup. it's about 15g of sugar without the regular melon syrup and the calories would be 100 instead of 160.

the regular tall latte has about 70cal and 9g of sugar. so it's a bit less than the green tea latte but i know that green tea has tons of antioxidants, etc. and the green tea powder that we use is high quality japanese matcha powder. i believe that the syrup is a worse sugar than the tiny amount of sugar that's in the matcha powder.

OK as I type I'm sucking back the Venti green tea latte with sugar free vanilla instead of melon syrup and non-fat milk. It's yummy but not as good as the melon one. Now do I count this as a dairy or what?

OK as I type I'm sucking back the Venti green tea latte with sugar free vanilla instead of melon syrup and non-fat milk. It's yummy but not as good as the melon one. Now do I count this as a dairy or what?

i count a tall latte as 1 dairy because i do extra ice or espresso in any of my lattes and not much milk, so a venti is 20oz, so i'd count it as at least 2 dairy.

well dang I was hoping it was only 1 as that's all I'm allowed for a day.
