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.

Tall Caramel Frap Light

Tall Caramel Frappucino Light

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:

Frap Nutrition

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.

You know what?  It was gooooood.

    It’s by far my fave drink at Starbucks! I love a good cup of coffee but if I am going to pay the price – that is what I pay for! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it too!

    My standard is medium skinny caramel latte. No idea whether its good or bad calorie wise but it makes me feel better because it means I get to say ‘skinny’ which makes me feel….skinny!

    Love Starbucks. Happy You Enjoyed It.

  4. I’m a bit confused. It mentions a lighter coffee base, is that the roast of the bean? Starbucks official site doesn’t mention calorie count on anything other than bold pick of the day and pike place, which have the same calorie count at 5 per 16oz, as does its mention of a shot of espresso (1oz).
