Default Starbucks question

So I love Starbucks Frappucinos and I've always got the light option which is skim milk and I get the sugar free syrup. Curious if anyone knows if the coffee base they use is SB friendly?

Oh, just the frappe mix, not the normal coffee, right? I mean that would be strange... I LOVE starbucks and it's one of my favorite treats. I always get a latte with low fat milk and I'd be really bummed if I had to give it up because they sneak sugar into it.

Oh no! If you get a nonfat latte with sugar free syrup it's fine, it's the frappucinos that cannot be made sugar free

the coffee in the drinks should just be straight espresso. you can have it black, with milk, without added sugar, in a plain latte....

If you want a cold, milky coffee drink, I would suggest an iced coffee with milk. Request nonfat milk. Also make sure to request no classic syrup (this comes with iced coffees and teas) you can replace it with a sugar free syrup!

Of course skinny lattes are good ideas too, but just mentioning the Iced coffee because it has less milk and therefore less calories.

(I work at starbucks! )

I always get an unsweetened ice coffee. I add Splenda and half and half (or skim milk) and add a dash of cinnamon OR I keep a bottle of SF DaVinci syrup at my desk and will add a dash or two of that.
