Are you a Starbucks or Gourmet Coffee Lover? I personally don’t drink coffee BUT I know this time of year a lot of my friends and followers are LOVING the Starbucks Peppermint Latte.
Did you know that there are 220 Calories in a Tall Nonfat Peppermint Mocha Latte no whip from Starbucks? Add an additional 70 Calories and 7 grams of fat if you get the whip.
Here is a healthier version for you with only 100 calories.
If you swap almond milk for nonfat milk and leave out the honey, you can enjoy it vegan at only 82 Calories.
It counts as a YELLOW if you are following a lifting program using the container system.
