Just in time for Valentine's Day, Dunkin' released a new special beverage available to rewards program members.

The Brownie Batter Signature Latte–-a spin on Dunkin's seasonal brownie batter doughnut—is the brand's first "member exclusive" drink, but their rewards program is free and easy to sign up for. The latte combines the chocolatey flavor of brownie batter with rich espresso. Topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle and seasonal sprinkles, this drink is available hot or cold.

But before you download the app and order the latte as is, here are some ways to make this drink a little bit healthier while keeping the delicious flavors.

Is the Brownie Batter Latte Healthy?

Here's the nutrition facts for a medium Brownie Batter Signature Latte with whole milk:

  • 440 calories
  • 16 grams of fat
  • 10 grams of saturated fat
  • 240 milligrams of sodium
  • 66 grams of carbs
  • 55 grams of sugar
  • 10 grams of protein

While this drink is high in protein, it's also high in calories, saturated fat, sodium and added sugar. The American Heart Association recommends a daily limit of 36 grams or 25 grams of added sugar for men and women, respectively. That means that this latte alone has around twice as much added sugar as what should be consumed in an entire day.

Here are some solutions to make this drink a little healthier:

  • Replace the whole milk. Replacing the whole milk with skim milk or a dairy-free alternative like almond milk, oat milk or soy milk will help with lowering the calories and saturated fat in this drink.
  • Ditch the toppings. Asking for no whipped cream, drizzle or sprinkles will definitely lower the added sugar content, and you'll still be able to enjoy the sweet brownie flavor.
  • Less pumps, please! Since this latte is flavored with syrup, you can ask for fewer pumps to help cut down on the calories and added sugar. While the taste will be more mild, it can help you  satisfy your cravings and enjoy the drink's flavors in a way that works better for your day.
  • Keep it short and sweet. This nutritional information is listed for a medium beverage, so order a small if you want to make it a bit lighter.

The Bottom Line

Seasonal drinks at Dunkin' are always a delicious treat, but be sure to order the Brownie Batter Signature Latte in moderation. With these healthier order modifications, you can fall in love with this sweet latte in a way that better aligns with your goals.
