Here’s why I stopped drinking frappuchinos!!L

Here’s how many calories are in your favorite Starbucks drinks Delish

Candace Braun Davison, Delish

The INSIDER Summary:

• Starbucks is one of the most popular cafe chains in the world.  

• A tall caffe latte is the healthiest drink with only 100 calories and 3.5 grams of fat.   

• A tall peppermint white hot chocolate is the least healthiest with 470 calories and 16 grams of fat.   
 Let’s be real: If you’re trying to drink the absolute healthiest, lowest-calorie option at Starbucks, you know you should stick to black coffee, or a cup of unsweetened tea. Or, better yet, a bottle of zero-calorie Ethos water. But sometimes you’re craving a true treat, and you don’t necessarily want the saccharine aftertaste of a “skinny” drink. Plus, all those diet experts swear that if you deprive yourself of what you really want, you’ll only break down later. The heart wants what the heart wants.
With that in mind, we decided to take a look at popular drinks from three major types of ‘Bucks indulgences — Frappuccinos, iced lattes and hot chocolates — comparing them to see how they stack up. Watch the video above to see how well you can spot the lowest-calorie choices out of the five we selected, then scroll below to see how they all stack up.
