Who doesn’t love a good coffee (or two) in the morning to help get you energized? I know I do! With that being said, sweeteners and added syrups, etc. can quickly add up. Are you wanting to enjoy the same drinks, but don’t want all of the added calories? I’ve got you covered!

While we’ve canceled a lot of summer trips and plans because of the new coronavirus pandemic, there’s one summer staple we’re already enjoying: Starbucks’ summer menu. Most Starbucks locations are now open after closing for safety reasons, and we were first in the drive-thru line to get our iced drinks (following proper social distancing guidelines, of course).

Although there are plenty of indulgent concoctions available, especially on the secret menu, there are actually quite a few beverages that are lower in calories to help you enjoy a guilt-free treat.

There are several java drinks on this list, but for those who prefer other caffeinated beverages, there are a variety of low-calorie teas available, too. (And no, not just your basic English breakfast. Some of them are infused with delicious flavorings such as blackberry and lemonade). No matter your preference, these tasty beverages will give you a boost without weighing you down.

If you guys have any favorite healthier Starbucks drink orders of your own, leave a comment! I would love nothing more than to hear what your go-to drinks are.




  1. I’m glad to know there are healthier choices to choose from at Starbucks.:)
    I tend to drink their caramel machiata hot coffee. It’s good, but I’m sure it’s chocked full of calories!
