How much is that Starbucks(R) holiday treat costing your waistline?

Who doesn’t love a yummy holiday coffee beverage to warm up on these cold winter days. But you may be in for more than you bargained for with the lineup o f holiday drinks at starbucks. What I commend Starbucks for however is being so forthright with nutritional info at their store (you can find a pamphlet at nearly any store), and on their site.

Here are a few Starbucks® holiday drinks by the numbers:

Peppermint Mocha Frappucinno® Blended Coffee – Tall no whip = 290 (with whip = 380); Grande no whip = 360!!

Peppermint Mocha – Tall with whip 2% = 320

Gingerbread Latte – Tall 2% with whip = 260

But you’re in luck, here are some lower calorie options with all the treat!

1. Grande nonfat Cafe Misto with 2 pumps of peppermint (or any) flavor = 110 calories (with soy = 140)

2. Tall nonfat latte with 1 pump mocha syrup (lite mocha) = 125

3. Tall nonfat caramel macchiato = 140

(P.S., a regular tall nf latte = 100 / Regular tall nf capp = 70)

Check out the Starbucks Nutritional information site for more info.
