Need to know what's what at Starbucks? HG's got you covered with the
lowdown on Starbucks' beverages--from brand new offerings to old-time
favorites. Just print out this handy cheat sheet and take it with you the next
time you visit Starbucks. Don't be ashamed...just do it!
Starbucks offers up tons of diet-friendly ways to quench your cravings. See?

Avoid these "so-not-worth-it" fatty beverages:
Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/whip (Grande) - 510
calories, 19g fat
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino Blended Crème, w/whip (Grande) - 470 calories,
White Hot Chocolate, w/whip and whole milk (Grande) - 520 calories, 24g fat
Cinnamon Dolce Latte, w/whip and whole milk (Grande) - 370 calories, 17g
Just the Fats, Ma'am!
Starbucks has added some reduced fat options to their menu. But don't fool
yourself into thinking they're necessarily low in calories, or even fat. If
you're going to partake, know what you're getting into.
HG has the scoop...
Reduced Fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake - 290 cal, 4g fat
Reduced Fat Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake - 390 cal, 8g fat
Reduced Fat Blueberry Coffee Cake - 320 cal, 6g fat
Reduced Fat Chocolate Muffin - 290 cal, 5g fat
Low Fat Apricot Blueberry Muffin - 380 cal, 5g fat
You'd be surprised just how much damage a little whipped cream or a couple
of pumps of syrup can do. Skip these little extras to keep your drink from
turning into a liquid fright-fest:
Whipped Cream - That big, scary squirt of whipped cream can add up to 130
calories & 12 grams of fat to your drink. What a silly idea that is!
Syrup Swap - The Bucks' regular flavored syrups add about 20-25 calories a
pump to your beverage. Their SF syrup is calorie-free. Weeeee!
Don't Go Bananas
Don't think just because a Starbucks Frappuccino is labeled as 'Light' it's low
cal. Unfortunately, such is the case with Starbucks' new summer time
blended banana beverages. Yes, the light version of this frothy concotion is
lower in calories than the regular one, but it's still quite high for a beverage.
Take a look for yourself...
Bananas & Creme Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande) - 550
calories, 15g fat
Banana Caramel Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee, no whip (Grande) - 310
calories, 1g fat
It's easy to automatically think that anything with '"tea" in its name would be
diet-friendly, but you'd be very, very wrong. Just look...
Tazo Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande) - 490
calories, 14g fat
Iced Tazo Red Tea Latte, w/ whip and whole milk (Grande) - 230 calories, 8g
Tazo Chai Tea Frappuccino Blended Creme, w/ whip (Grande) - 440 calories,
Sell Yourself Short!
Don't be shy. Use the secret of Hungry Girls everywhere and order your
drink in a "short" size. It's not on the menu but your friendly neighborhood
barista will happily accommodate you and save you dozens of calories and
fat grams along the way. Woohoo!
