10 iced Starbucks drinks that are under 100 calories
As the temperature heats up, it’s hard to stick with simple, low-calorie black coffee. But those giant iced drinks with their added sugar, cream and syrups can torpedo your whole day of healthy eating before you even get to work. If Starbucks is your usual stop, there are still plenty of ice-cold caffeinated drinks you can enjoy without any guilt. Just remember to skip the whip and keep your order to the small (tall) size.
Here are 10 delicious cold Starbucks drinks you’ll want to sip all summer long if you need some caffeine, yet want to watch your waistline.
Cold Brew Coffee. Cold brew coffee became all the rage a few years back, but you can benefit from this indulgent tasting, slow-steeped drink. It only has about 5 calories. Add a splash of nonfat milk and you’ll still only sip around 25 calories.
Iced Coffee Blend. An “lightly sweetened” iced coffee with skim or soy milk will only set you back 80 or 90 calories respectively.
Iced Skinny Mocha. It seems impossible this delightfully indulgent drink could only be 70 calories, but it’s true!
Caramel Frappuccino. Order this drink light and get all the taste of the original for just 100 calories.
Iced Caffe Americano. Two shots of espresso are topped with water and served over ice for a grand total of 10 measly calories. You could have 10 of these and still be under 100 calories — although we seriously don’t recommend that.
Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte. Enjoy this Starbucks winter classic all summer long for only 60 calories.
Doubleshot on ice. Splurge with some 2 percent milk for a creamier drink — it’s still only 80 calories.
Starbucks Refreshers. Made with real fruit juice and lightly caffeinated, enjoy a splash of summer flavor in Very Berry Hibiscus (60 calories), Cool Lime (45 calories), Strawberry Acai (80 calories), and Mango Dragonfruit (70 calories).
Teavana Shaken Sweet Tea. This summer classic is just sweet enough to satisfy that craving, while setting you back a modest 80 calories.
Teavana Shaken Iced Tea. Choose from passion tango, classic black tea, peach citrus white tea, pineapple black tea, or green tea. Get them lightly sweetened for around 30 calories.
