Super Sippers

Ditch These...

Avoid these "so-not-worth-it" fatty beverages:

Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/whip (Grande) - 510 calories, 19g fat

Vanilla Bean Frappuccino Blended Crème, w/whip (Grande) - 470 calories, 14g fat

White Hot Chocolate, w/whip and whole milk (Grande) - 520 calories, 24g fat

Cinnamon Dolce Latte, w/whip and whole milk (Grande) - 370 calories, 17g fat

Just the Fats, Ma'am!

Starbucks has added some reduced fat options to their menu. But don't fool yourself into thinking they're necessarily low in calories, or even fat. If you're going to partake, know what you're getting into.

HG has the scoop...

Reduced Fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake - 290 cal, 4g fat

Reduced Fat Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake - 390 cal, 8g fat

Reduced Fat Blueberry Coffee Cake  - 320 cal, 6g fat

Reduced Fat Chocolate Muffin - 290 cal, 5g fat

Low Fat Apricot Blueberry Muffin - 380 cal, 5g fat

Extra, Extra!

You'd be surprised just how much damage a little whipped cream or a couple of pumps of syrup can do. Skip these little extras to keep your drink from turning into a liquid fright-fest:

Whipped Cream - That big, scary squirt of whipped cream can add up to 130 calories & 12 grams of fat to your drink. What a silly idea that is!

Syrup Swap - The Bucks' regular flavored syrups add about 20-25 calories a pump to your beverage. Their SF syrup is calorie-free. Weeeee!

Don't Go Bananas

Don't think just because a Starbucks Frappuccino is labeled as 'Light' it's low cal. Unfortunately, such is the case with Starbucks' new summer time blended banana beverages. Yes, the light version of this frothy concotion is lower in calories than the regular one, but it's still quite high for a beverage. Take a look for yourself...

Bananas & Creme Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande)  - 550 calories, 15g fat

Banana Caramel Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee, no whip (Grande) - 310 calories, 1g fat

Tea Careful...

It's easy to automatically think that anything with '"tea" in its name would be diet-friendly, but you'd be very, very wrong. Just look...

Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande) - 490 calories, 14g fat

Iced Tazo Red Tea Latte, w/ whip and whole milk (Grande) - 230 calories, 8g fat

Tazo Chai Tea Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande) - 440 calories, 13g fat

Sell Yourself Short!

Don't be shy. Use the secret of Hungry Girls everywhere and order your drink in a "short" size. It's not on the menu but your friendly neighborhood barista will happily accommodate you and save you dozens of calories and fat grams along the way. Woohoo!
