An Iced Grande Coffee
In A VENTI cup
No Classic Syrup
Add Two Splenda
Add Light, Heavy Whipping Cream
Shew! It IS a mouth full, but I cannot drink it any other way. I like LOADS of ice, making it almost as if I am drinking coffee ice cream. The venti cup provides room for MORE ice, making it extra cold. I remove that nasty, HIGH SUGARED syrup (loads of calories and carbs) and in it's place I add two splenda packets (making it sugar-fee) and a hint of whipping cream (Atkins diet approved). I am NOT a fan of milk, but because I add so much ice, I can handle the creamy taste. If Starbucks accidentally adds the classic syrup, ONE SIP causes me to feel like I need to go to the dentist and I do a "U-ey" aka a u-turn and make them refix it.
I called Starbucks and they broke down the nutritional value as follows:
Ice Grande Coffee 5 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 Sugar
(2) Splenda Packets 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 Sugar
A Splash Of Heavy Whipping Cream 52 calories, 5 g of fat, 0 carbs, 0 Sugar
This drink has less than 57 calories and 5 grams of fat. I'll take it. Beats a coke (90 calories, 26 grams of sugar) or a small fry (231 calories and 11.5 grams of fat), and it keeps me going throughout the day, instead of giving me a HI-LOW or worse making me feel sluggish and chubby.
You should try it!!!! It's the BEST, non-guilty pleasure drink, at STARBUCKS!!! And just incase you are curious about the price... it's $2.73. Don't judge me... this is MY ONLY daily splurge, other than a bi-monthly mani/pedi, which my hubby requires I do :)
