Like so many people I am trying to lose a little weight before I have to wear a bathing suit in public and I’m really watching my calorie intake. I gave up soft drinks for Lent (OK OK and I cheated on my daughter’s 5th birthday but I had to have a fountain Coke) but one thing I haven’t given up is my morning coffee.
Starbucks Frappuccinos are a treat for me, but they have a lot of calories and sugar. However Starbucks has introduced a new light version of their mocha and vanilla Frappuccinos. Can I get a caffeinated Amen! There was a time when “light” drinks tasted light, if you know what I mean, but these are really yummy.
The mocha light Frappuccino has 40 percent fewer calories and 60 percent less sugar than regular mocha Frapppuccinos, while the vanilla light Frappuccino has 50 percent fewer calories and 60 percent less sugar. Each new variety has just 100 calories so you don’t feel guilty drinking them.
Want to win a four-pack of Starbucks’ new lite Frappuccino which will include two bottles of mocha light and two bottles of vanilla light? Just leave a comment about your favorite coffee drink from Starbucks, or if you have never tried Starbucks leave a comment about which new Frappuccino light variety you would like to try.
