Introduction:If you want to enjoy hot drinks that won't blow your diet, Starbucks has several options. Most of their coffee choices can be made 'diet' (skinny) if you ask the barista to use nonfat milk, sugar-free syrup and no whipped cream. But there are delicious low calorie hot drinks available right off the menu. Here are some of my favorite hot drinks available at Starbucks.
Starbucks created a lighter version of their rich and smooth Caramel Macchiato classic.
In both hot drinks, Starbucks starts with their espresso roast. The difference in this low fat version is the use of sugar-free vanilla syrup and freshly steamed nonfat milk. The lower calorie treat is topped with silky foam and a drizzle of caramel.
A standard Starbucks latte can be made into a low calorie coffee treat with a few simple changes. Try a latte made with espresso, steamed nonfat milk and your favorite flavor of sugar-free syrup. This scrumptious treat is just as tasty and satisfying as any of the higher calorie hot drinks Starbucks offers.
Something about cinnamon flavored hot drinks on cold days hit the spot. The next time you feel like a warm low calorie treat, sample a Starbucks Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Made with espresso, steamed nonfat milk and sugar-free cinnamon dolce flavored syrup, this satisfying coffee is finished with a cinnamon dolce topping.
To appeal to American preferences, the Caffè Americano is a full-bodied espresso drink with the addition of extra hot water. Though this espresso drink is comparable to regular brewed coffee, the use of espresso as the base adds a depth and dimension that you may not experience with American-style brewed coffee.
Simple and satisfying, a Nonfat Caffè Latte is basically a shot or two of bold espresso with fresh, nonfat steamed milk on top. For a stronger burst of flavor, ask the barista for an extra shot of espresso in the Nonfat Caffè Latte.
