I met a friend at Starbucks the other day. While this isn’t new for me, what is new for me is that I actually ordered something other than bottled water. Since I’m now more confident in what I choose to eat and drink, I’ve started exploring other options. The meal plan I’ve been following this week has given me 100-200 calories of wiggle room to work with, so I decided to see what I could get at Starbucks in that range.
I Googled “Starbucks low calorie drinks,” and came up with an article titled, “Low Calorie Drinks You Didn’t Know Existed At Starbucks” from a blog called SheKnows. The drink that sounded most appealing was the Frappuccino.
To verify that the drink was in my range, I searched for “Starbucks Tall Caramel Frappuccino Light Nutrition,” and I came up with this:
Not that everything you read on the Internet is true, but I found several sources that claimed that the drink I planned to order was within my calorie budget. When I entered it into my Calorie Count app, it registered as 125 calories.
