what are some healthy drinks to get from starbucks? I personally HATE iced coffee, but if your suggestion is about iced coffee then TYPE IT! i want everyone to have their choices, if someone has the same question i do, but they want iced coffee they can still find it here! so i am babysitting right by starbucks and i really want some. i always get the white mocha, extra hot. but i want to get something healthy. the only problem is most of the healthy things are not sweet! does anyone know a healthy coffee from starbucks that is still sweet?
I'm still stuck in the scared-to-get-anything-but: coffee or green tea phase, but otherwise:
I really like chai lattes. You can ask for it skinny..? I don't really think that makes it much more healthy, but it's darn good.
Dude. I am the same way. I still won't go there unless I'm forced to by whoever I'm with.
My reason is a little different though. I used to have a severe reaction to fat (got my gallbladder out and now I'm fine) so had to order absolutely everything fat free. I found out the hard way that starbucks CANNOT be trusted to actually make your drink the way you ask- if they're out of something, they will not tell you and just make your drink with whole milk instead of skim. I ended up with hours of pain after that and haven't been back since that day... only now it's because of the calorie factor.
Do they actually do that? Oh wow :(.
I would advise going to a coffee shop and getting real coffee instead of the sludge they sell at starbucks.
Healthiest option is the Vivanno, about 270 - 300 calories it has milk (you can ask for skim and itll be even less calories), protein powder, a whole banana and either chocolate flavoring or orange mango juice depending on which flavor you choose. So you get the health benefits of those things mentioned.
For low calorie I get the tall skinny flavored vanilla latte, with sugar free syrup (ask which flavors they have in that, most have at least peppermint, vanilla and dulce de leche). Starbucks website says it is 90 cals
ALSO, what I did is go to the Starbucks website and look at the nutrition menu, write down a few of the lowest cal drinks they offer and those are your choices :D
In the summer afternoon, I'll get a tall unsweetened iced coffee or Americano (sometimes with 1 pump vanilla but usually black.
A few times in the summer, I may get a tall coffee light frappucino
If you want REALLY good coffee, I'd buy a french press and make your own. You can buy the same syrups that starbucks uses, and probably save a lot of money each month while getting better quality for what you do spend. ;)
