Frappey Days are Here Again

 

BREAKING NEWS!  After two years of tweaking, brewing, blending and tasting, Starbucks has introduced a brand new line of LIGHT BLENDED FRAPPUCCINOS!  They're Hungry Girl tested---and Hungry Girl approved!

Here's the lowdown on the new frozen frappes...

Nutritionals for the "Grande" 16oz. size:

Espresso Frappuccino Light Blended - 140 cal., 1g fat, 27 carbs, 3g fiber                  

Coffee Frappuccino Light Blended  - 150 cal., 1g fat, 30 carbs, 3g fiber                     

Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended - 180 cal., 1.5g fat, 36 carbs, 4g fiber   

Caramel Frappuccino Light Blended - 180 cal., 1.5g fat, 36 carbs, 3g fiber 

Caffe Vanilla Frappuccino Light Blended - 230 cal., 1g fat, 49 carbs, 4g fiber   

Java Chip Frappuccino Light Blended - 260 cal. 7g fat, 46 carbs, 5g fiber



We sampled  the above and came to the following conclusions:

1. BEST BETS - Your best options are the Coffee and Espresso frappes. They taste GREAT, and are very low in fat & calories.

2. FEELING DECADENT? Without a doubt go for the Caramel or Mocha Light Frappuccinos. Both are AWESOME (even better than the  higher-cal ones!) and they're also low in fat and calories.

3. JUST SAY NO!  Take a pass on the  Caffe Vanilla and Java Chip. The vanilla is not only higher in calories,  it also has a really weird aftertaste.  And the Java Chip, though delicious (probably because it has real chocolate bits throughout!), has 7g of fat and considerably more calories than the rest.  Not worth it!

Way to go, Starbucks! And, um, It's about time...


CHEW ON THIS:
Made with a sugar/Splenda mix and fat free milk, Starbuck's new light Frappuccino line will save you about 100-150 calories per 16 oz.  And skip the whipped cream...it'll add an extra 90-100 calories to your frappe!
