Default Starbucks question

I was looking at their website nutritional information and it doesn't really lend itself well to customization. I get a venti iced coffee with a splash of nonfat milk and no sweetener. The website says a venti with nonfat milk is 170 calories but it doesn't say if there is sweetener. Does anyone know maybe a ballpark estimate for the calories in my drink? Thanks.

Iced coffee would have 10 or so calories on it's own, max. A "splash" is not measurable in this case. A cup of nonfat milk has about 83 calories. Using that info, I'd guestimate!

Thanks for the quick reply. You validated what I was thinking.

artificial sweetener doesn't have calories. If you are using a syrup all syrups are the same so just include a syrup in your calculations.
