The many health benefits of coffee are grabbing headlines these days, which is good news for those of us who can’t live with out our daily caffeine fix! While some coffee drinks can be loaded with sugar and extra calories, a few simple changes can make your drink of choice a lot healthier – so you can order without the guilt.
If you’re a true latte lover, there’s no need to fear – small changes can make your drink a little easier on your waistline. If you’re watching your calories, ask for a traditional latte (which is unsweetened) and choose either low-fat milk or soy. If you’d like to sweeten your drink, add a calorie-free sugar substitute or sugar-free syrup. And if you just can’t live with out your favorite vanilla or hazelnut flavoring, ask for one pump of syrup instead of two which will lessen the calorie and sugar content.
