coffee fridays


One of my favorite coffee treats is an Iced Caramel Coffee with Skim Milk from Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s definitely a treat and I only have them a couple times a month, but I really love the sweet caramel syrup it’s hard to resist getting them as a pick-me-up on hard days.


I used to get a medium Iced Caramel Coffee w/ Skim from Dunkin every single work day (5 days) when I lived in Boston one summer. That’s probably one of the reasons I packed on about 15 lbs!

To keep sane, though, I do allow myself to indulge in this treat every now and again. I’ve also developed more of a taste for coffee so I appreciate drinks that aren’t so sugar-y like this one.

Here are some of my favorite coffee drinks that are better choices!

Skinny Peppermint Mocha (Starbucks) Grande 130 cal, 1.5g fat, 17g carb, 13g protein
Skinny Mocha hot or iced with 2 pumps mocha (Starbucks) Grande 120 cal, ~2g fat, ~25g carb, 13g protein

Did you know Starbucks is having their Holiday Drink Happy Hour? Enjoy!
