Starbucks Festive Coffees – Calories and Fat

You know Christmas is on the horizon when Starbucks bring out the Red Cups. And naturally, to go with the festive cups, are the Christmas themed, espresso based coffees. In common with so much Christmas fare, they’re not light on calories.
 
The weightiest Starbucks Christmas Festive coffee clocks in at 579 calories with 22g of fat, (more than two Mars Bars), while the lightest has only 157 calories and 5g of fat.

If you can’t resist your favourite Starbucks Christmas coffee but don’t want to ruin your dieting plans, here’s a short guide to the calories and fat you’ll find in this year’s offerings.

Those shown are the largest ‘Venti’ size using full fat milk, the smallest ‘Short’ size using skimmed milk and the two sizes in the middle – ‘Tall’ and ‘Grande’ using the more popular semi-skimmed milk. All are served with whipped cream.

As luxurious and indulgent as those creamy toppings are, they come with the drawback of extra calories and fat.

If you want to shave off a few extra calories, you can always ask for your drink without the whipped cream topping.

By ordering a short beverage without cream you’ll save 52 calories and 5.1g of fat. For a tall drink you’ll save 62 calories and 6.1g of fat, and for a Grande or Venti you’ll save 81 calories and 7.0g of fat.
