If you’re a caffeine fiend, and so many of us quite simply are, then you know that when it comes to coffee certain drinks can end up being more like cake than the delicious beverage.
Trying to cut out excess sugar without abstaining from coffee entirely can therefore be a bit of a challenge.
While plenty of coffee chains (Starbucks, we’re looking at you) tell you how many calories are in their drinks; the sugar breakdown is less than visible.
So, if you’re trying to cut down on the sugar consider branching out and giving one of these orders a try instead of your usual.
The World Health Organisation recommends no more than six teaspoons or 25 grams of sugar to be your daily sugar consumption, these are a few orders that fall within those guidelines.
Skinny latte: 0g
A Starbucks Skinny Peppermint Mocha (festive): 13g
Sadly, this is not on the Irish menu yet but we reckon the fact that it is much lower in sugar than some other seasonal drinks makes an excellent case for the possibility of seeing it next year.
