Lower Calorie Starbucks Drinks and Snacks

12 Starbucks Treats For Under 250 Calories

Decadent coffee shop desserts and fancy espresso drinks can be diet killers, but there are lower calorie options if you're watching your calories and find yourself hungry on the go. Chains like Starbucks may serve up seriously indulgent seasonal drinks, but the company also lists nutritional facts on its website, so you can scout out treats that won't wreck your healthy eating habits in a few bites. I was curious to scope out the best calorie bets on the menu, so I compiled 15 Starbucks items you can snag for under 250 calories if you're ever on the go and looking for a healthier treat.

  1. Birthday Cake Mini Doughnut has 130 calories and six grams of fat.
  2. Marshmallow Dream Bar has 210 and four grams of fat.
  3. Petite Vanilla Bean Scone has 140 calories and five grams of fat.
  4. Chicken on Flatbread with Hummus Artisan Snack Plate has 250 and nine grams of fat.
  5. Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal without topping has 140 calories and two and a half grams of fat.

Keep reading for a peek at drinks for under 250 calories.

  1. Grande Tazo Awake Brewed Tea has zero calories.
  2. Grande Cappuccino with nonfat milk has 80 calories.
  3. Grande Tazo Black Shaken Iced Tea has 80 calories.
  4. Grande Latte with nonfat milk has 130 calories.
  5. Grande Tazo Black Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade has 130 calories.
  6. Grande Skinny Flavored Latte has 130 calories.
  7. Grande Caramel Macchiato has 190 calories and one gram of fat.

My summer go-to is always an unsweetened passion iced tea. Since they don't add any of their sugary syrups, it stays at 0 calories and is super refreshing! I tend to always drink my tea black, but for people who like their tea sweet, the passion tea is super sweet without any added sweeteners.

I don't worry about calories as much as cholesterol, saturated fat, and sugar. When I go to Starbucks, I usually get a Soy Caramel Macchiato, which contains 170 calories, 4g total fat (1g saturated), no cholesterol, 23g of sugar, and 6g of protein. Sometimes I opt for sugar free, but I'm trying to cut back on artificial sweeteners and I already use enough in my tea.

I like the nonfat cinnamon dolce latte, no whip. I have tried the "skinny" version - with sugar free syrup, but it wasn't worth it. I get the regular syrup, just skim milk. I also like the nonfat Starbucks Double Shot on Ice. I made the mistake of picking up an apple bran muffin the other day, with the promise of 7g of fiber. Turns out it's also 350 calories, 9g of fat, 22% of my daily cholesterol and 23% of my daily sodium. It was good! But next time I'm in a rush, I'll grab a Kashi bar for the road rather than pick up food when I stop at Starbucks.

I never go to Starbucks, but this is great to know. I can estimate better what drinks are at my local shop!

I use to eat 3 white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and a green tea in one sitting from starbuck, until I found out that one cookie had 500 calories. I was eating 1500 calories in one evening with friends! This is a great post, and a needed one

Hooray for tea having zero calories! Whenever I get Starbucks I usually get tea -- which means that when I've been really good and deserve a treat, I get one of their chocolate chip cookies. They're so good!
