4 Coffee Drinks to Watch Out For, Plus Healthier Options to Choose (Page 2)

Skinnier Sip: Starbucks Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte

A tall (12 oz.) nonfat Pumpkin Spice Latte—skip the whip—satisfies my sweet tooth for half the damage: 200 calories, 0 g fat and 38 g sugars. If I’m feeling virtuous, I’ll ask for half the syrup to cut back on added sugars even more. Personally, I prefer to avoid artificial sweeteners but choosing one of Starbucks’s “skinny” drinks, which are sugar-free, can save you even more. For example, a grande (16 oz.) Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte, with nonfat milk, has only 130 calories, 0 g fat and 17 g sugars—natural sugars from the milk. Speaking of milk, the good news about all these drinks is that they are an excellent source of calcium: even a 12-oz. size supplies 30 percent the Daily Value.
