I adore visiting coffee shops, as I’m sure you do, but I’m also sure I avoid the worst things to order at coffee shops so I don’t get myself in trouble! Many coffee shop drinks contain well over 500 calories, even if you don’t order the largest size available. Fun toppings like syrup, whipped cream, or sauces also increase the calorie count. Don’t fall prey to racking up a day’s worth of calories by choosing the worst things to order at coffee shops. I think you’ll find that with all the other healthy options out there, you have plenty of other items to choose from that you can still enjoy, and that won’t ruin your waistline at the same time.
1. The Mocha Frappe
Let’s start with one of my favorite things, but one of the worst things to order at coffee shops of all. I’m such a stickler for mocha flavors, but regular mocha frappes contain well over, or close to, 40 grams of sugar- in a small! Your best best is to stick with a “Skinny” mocha at Starbucks or other coffee shops, which is made with sugar-free mocha syrup. Sure, it has artificial sweeteners, but if you’re dying for a mocha, it’s pretty good, and consider it a splurge for only 11 grams of sugar from the milk in the drink.
