A Cup of Low-Cal Goodness
You may already know that coffee and tea are naturally low in calories. In fact, a Grande brewed coffee (16 fl oz) has only about 5 calories and a Grande brewed tea has 0 calories, so both are good choices for those seeking a delicious, low-cal pick-me-up.
If you like a little added sweetness, here are some of my favorite customizations. (All nutritional info per Grande 16 fl oz size.)
- Iced Coffee with 1 packet of sugar – 25 calories, 0g fat, 6g sugar, 0g protein.
- Iced Coffee with Milk made “skinny” with one serving of sugar-free sweetener* and a splash (say 2 fl oz) of nonfat milk – 25 calories, 0g fat, 3g sugar, 2g protein.
- Tazo® Shaken Iced Passion Tea made “skinny” with one serving of sugar-free sweetener* – 0 calories, 0g fat, 0g sugar, 0g protein.
- Tazo® Awake™ Tea Latte made “skinny” with one serving of sugar-free sweetener* – 80 calories, 0g fat, 11g sugar (from milk), 8g protein.
*This could be a packet of Sweet’N Low®, Splenda®, Equal® or a few pumps of one of our sugar-free syrups.
Knowing all this, treating yourself to a delicious cup of coffee or tea has never felt so good!
