Starbucks

I have found something that works awesome at helping to control hunger.

 

Every morning I have a glass of milk with whatever my 3-4 point breakfast is. Well this morning, DB drank all the milk in the container leaving just enough so he wouldn't have to throw the jug away!! So I was irritated I couldn't get my daily morning dairy in. Anyway, this morning on my way to work I stopped by Starbucks to pick up a grande non fat Sugar Free Vanilla latte. Not only did this get in my two milk servings but it has had me feeling full all morning!! Usually by now I'm craving food, and watching the clock till lunch time.

 

Anyway, I just thought this was a great way to get in BOTH dairy servings for low points and to control your hunger all in one!:crazy:

I love them too... it's just the price that kills me. I have it for a treat or if friends want to go for dessert. They have their cake and I enjoy my latte.

The pumpkin spice lattes are delish. I figured out how to make them at home. I add about 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice to my coffee grounds before brewing my coffee (I have a 4 cup coffee maker). When it's done, I add FF 1/2 and 1/2 to my cup, some Splenda and a dollop of FF Cool Whip on top. Tastes almost exactly the same and so much cheaper!

NO!!! The tall non-fat pumpkin spice latte is FOUR points, and that's without the whipped cream. Check out the nutritional information on the Starbuck's website. They are delish and I've had them a few times when I can spare the points.

 

To compare, a tall non-fat latte is two points and a tall non-fat vanilla latte is three points. I'm not sure how you would figure that a pumplin spice latte would be zero points?

How is a non fat (milk) sugar free (Syrup) 3 points? I am referring to the non fat vanilla latte?

I'm not making this up. ;) Check out the information on the Starbuck's website. The nutritional information for all of their drinks is there. I figure they know what they put in them.

 

From the Starbuck's website for a tall non-fat vanilla latte:

Calories - 170

Fat - 0

Fiber - 0

 

According to my slider, that's three points (almost four).

There is a wealth of information available out on the internet. Many places have nutritional information available on their website. I believe Dunkin Donuts is one, but since I don't go there I haven't checked, I've just heard people say it's there. But, even if you can't find the nutritional information for a restaurant there are other sites you can go to that will give you an idea. Some of them are:

 

www.dietfacts.com

www.calorieking.com

www.dwlz.com

 

But always, always, use the nutritional information on the restaurant website, or the nutritional information found on the package before going to one of these other sites. That is the information that will be the most up to date and accurate.

If you ask for the non-fat it lowers the points to 4. Still high, but better than 6. ;)

No-sugar syrups are 0 points. I checked out their gazillion page handbook last time I was in one, to be sure, since NS syrups aren't on the website. There are 0 calories in NS syrups. So, you only need to count 1 point per 4oz skim milk and you are good to go. A Tall (12oz) is 3 pts, a Grande (16oz) is 4 pts.

Cool. I didn't even know Starbuck's had no-sugar syrups. I'll have to check it out next time I go in.

I have often underestimated my coffee points because of the milk! FF 1/21/2 still has 20calories for 2 tbsp. I know I use at leat that in 1 cup but I usually have 2 cups! The points can escelate without us realizing unless we're careful. I had starbucks yesterday and today...FF Cappucino with splenda and cinnamon, but the tall is 2 points according to my calculations. Please, someone tell me that's right!! (I visited the website and DWLZ) I LOVE coffee!!!
