We all love our morning cup of joe, and Starbucks has made it even easier to get our hands on it. Although black coffee can be pretty healthy for one’s body, that doesn’t mean that all of Starbucks drinks are good for us. Some of Starbucks drinks are loaded with more sugar then your body needs in one day.
Here we are going to break down the six best and six worse Starbucks drinks that you can order.
Lowest Calorie Drinks At Starbucks
1. Cold Foam Iced Cappuccino – 57 Calories
We all love our iced coffee and the cold foam iced cappuccino lets you enjoy it for only 57 calories! This drink is topped with a slightly sweet espresso coffee and a cold milk foam as a floated. It is an excellent choice if you are looking for something sweet but want to keep your calories low.
2. Nitro Cold Brew – 4 Calories
Cold brew has been taking the coffee market by storm, and we can see why. Cold brew is a mixture of ground coffee and cold water that is slowly steeped for 20 hours and then infused with nitrogen for a naturally sweet flavor. Also, the drink is only four calories.
3. Shaken Iced Green Tea – 45 Calories
If you’re not a coffee lover, Starbucks has some delicious and refreshing teas you can try. The lemongrass and mint blended drink will help quench your thirst without adding on all those additional calories.
4. Caffe Americano – 11 Calories
If you’re looking for something a little stronger, look no further than the Americano. Espresso shots are topped with water, which produces a light layer of crema that gives your drink a delicious, fresh coffee taste without all the calories.

Yes, you can still have a Frappuccino without all the added sugars. This coffee combines light mocha-flavored sauce with iced coffee that is blended with milk and ice. It is then topped with whipped cream for a finishing touch. Order it in a Tall to make sure you stay under 100 calories or you can ditch the whipped cream for an even lighter beverage.
6. Matcha Tea Latte – 89 Calories
Lattes are delicious but can come with a hefty calories tag, but the matcha tea latte is perfect if you’re craving something sweet and low in calories. Starbucks uses a three blend matcha to make this drink, which will add a subtle floral taste to your latte.

5. White Chocolate Mocha – 510 Calories
Not to be outdone by the hot chocolate, the white chocolate mocha also made this list with a calorie count of 510.

Although a lot of Starbucks drinks aren’t the best when it comes to calorie count, they do offer a lot of “skinny” options that help cut the calories and sugar. You also have the option of getting plain coffee with no sugar added or several of the different teas they sell which have next to no calories included. You can find great options all under 200 calories on Starbucks’ website as well.
