It can be really hard to work through a menu at any restaurant much less Starbucks where there is seriously 50000 options. What are the best drinks to get at Starbucks and won't run you tons of calories?! Where can I find Starbucks nutrition? The cool thing is that there are so many different variations that you can do to make it work for you and what you love. I'm going to start with 20 today that you should try!
I'm gonna also just give you this first one as a freebie. Obviously if you get any of the roasts (my favorite is blonde) then you can just add 1-2 pumps of your favorite sugar free syrup and it's a calorie free drink! That's a given! But, that's also boring so I thought I'd show you some of the fun fan favorite drinks and their macros. [[Insert meme about the basicness of this post and how every girl walks up and is like "I'd like the skinny skinny with a side of skinny, no whip, sugar free skinny" but I digress.]]
You really can turn any of your favorite drinks into skinny versions. There are always sugar free syrups and skim milk that you could substitute. If you see a drink that you like for example, the coffee frapp light then you can add whatever sugar free syrup you fancy and have a nice little treat. Heck, throw some protein powder in that sucker and call it a day (I'm kind of joking although I typically hate protein powder so I probably wouldn't do it haha). ALSO, Starbucks now has coconut milk which I just adore, and I've seen moms come in and order their drinks, and just order a tiny baby cup of coconut milk for their kids and I just like to pretend I'm these cute moms in those moments. LOL! (One day folks-ONE.DAY.)
All of the sugar free syrups include: vanilla, hazelnut, caramel, peppermit, mocha, and cinnamon dolce. I know that many of you might read this and think "OH NO SUGAR FREE IS SO BAD FOR YOU! So many chemicals!!!" The entire purpose of my blog is honestly to show you that each decision that you make is an individual risk assessment for your life and your health. That varies from person to person, and many times people weight the risk vs benefit of the taste of a nice starbucks drink without the calories and just don't care. If you'd like to read my blog about artificial sweeteners, HERE is that.
When you ask for "Skinny", you are asking for nonfat milk and sugar free syrup and to hold the whipped cream. If you are wanting soy milk or coconut milk instead of nonfat milk then you will need to tell them that because the default for the skinny is nonfat.
I will say it's super easy to find all of the Starbucks nutrition listed online. Here is the PDF.
