All of the "light" and "skinny" drinks advertised are made with sugar-free syrup -- which contains artificial sweetener. Just get the regular frappuccino with nonfat milk and no whipped cream if you must.

It would be nice if you noted which sauces contained artificial sweeteners, not just that they're "light".
