How to make holiday Starbucks drinks healthier

How is it already mid November?! I have no idea but I am officially in full holiday mode! Holiday drinks at Starbucks have arrived for a couple weeks now and there are so many yummy ones! Even before I changed my life style to healthier eating, I always thought their drinks were wayyy to sweet. I am sharing how I make the holiday Starbucks drinks healthier (but still delish!)

Let’s do some simple math. A tall drink has 3 pumps of syrup, a grande 4 and a venti five. That’s a lot of sugar! If you are getting the peppermint mocha, you are getting 5 pumps of each (mocha+peppermint) which is pretty much half the cup in syrups.

Peppermint Mocha

Nothing quite like a PM to get you in the Christmas spirit! Here is how I order mine:

Venti 1 pump peppermint, 1 pump mocha 1 pump peppermint mocha no whip made with almond milk. (The whip adds an extra 80 calories) but every now and then I splurge and leave it on!

Eggnog Latte

Ahhh eggnog lattes are so good! Luckily, Starbucks mixes straight eggnog with either non fat or 2% milk. Here’s how I order mine:

Grande non-fat eggnog latte

Chestnut Praline Latte

Very similar to the PM, I order it as a Grande half sweet non-fat (or almond milk), no whip

There are so many other delicious drinks on their menu, so if I ever want to try something new, I just remember to order half sweet, non-fat (or almond milk) and no whip. It cuts the calories more than half!

What’s your fav Starbucks holiday drink?
