Top 10 Unhealthiest/Healthiest Starbucks Drinks
Top 10 Unhealthiest
Caramel Brulee Latte
This prime example of end-of-the-empire decadence jams 580 calories, twenty grams of fat, and eighty-five grams of carbs into its scant twenty ounces.
White Hot Chocolate
The White Hot Chocolate contains more saturated fat than a six-piece bucket of fried chicken at KFC and about as many calories as a chicken alfredo calzone at the Olive Garden.
Caramel Apple Spice Drink
it contains no nutritional benefits and the same amount of sugar as five Hostess Twinkies.
this drink is so far off the charts nutritionally that if you wanted to recreate it in the form of a solid, you would have to eat a white bread sandwich slathered in bacon grease and chocolate syrup, stuffed with a cronut, and topped with a dozen crushed Dum Dum pops.
Classic Chai Tea Latte
A "spiced black tea blended with steamed milk." Although a chai tea latte is essentially created from chai tea, do not let the word "tea" in the title fool you. Tea can be doctored like coffee; filled with sugar and in this case, composed of 42 grams.
Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino Blended Crème
In a 16-ounce (grande) serving, you can consume 420 calories, 20 grams of fat, and 52 grams of sugar. The doubled chocolate does not sound as tempting now, does it?
White Chocolate Mocha
This 20-ounce Venti espresso beverage contains 500 calories. Although packed with 18 grams of protein, the 76 grams of carbohydrate seems to outweigh the amount of protein. The 15 grams of fat does not even include the whipped cream atop…
There’s nothing more delightful than hot cocoa in the winter. Unfortunately, it comes with a serious cost at Starbucks. This Hot Chocolate starts with steamed milk and comes with two flavored syrups, sweetened whipped cream, and a chocolaty drizzle. Sound delicious? It sure is! And it also has 400 calories, 16 grams of fat, and 43 grams of sugar. Well, if all else fails and you order it anyway, you can focus on the 14 grams of protein to make you feel a little less guilty.
A smoothie sounds healthier than a milkshake — it’s kind of like how sorbet sounds healthier than ice cream, even though that’s not always the case. As far as this Chocolate Smoothie is concerned, don’t be fooled by the healthy-sounding name. The mocha sauce, banana, milk, and mix of protein and fiber powders all come together for 340 calories. Unfortunately, the drink also comes with 7 grams of fat and 34 grams of sugar. Don’t be persuaded by the 20 grams of protein — there are plenty of healthier ways to get the same amount into your diet.
