When you step into Starbucks and see so many different options on the menu, it can be hard to decide which drink to choose! You also don’t want to accidentally pick a drink that will equate to 500 calories now do you (that’s right I’m talking to you grande frappucino)?
Lucky for you, over the years I have tracked my calories and macros very closely. During this time, I have had to get creative with my Starbucks drinks because I did not want to consume too many calories!
I’ve compiled several different options for you to choose from (with the macronutrients included of course): From keto drinks, to low sugar, and overall low calorie!
With this cheat sheet you can go to any local Starbucks in the DMV, show them your order from this sheet and have a delicious healthy drink in no time!
