Fast food thirst quenchers hit the spot during the warm-weather season. But some of the creamiest, tastiest drinks such as milkshakes, smoothies, and blended frappes can be a big threat to your swimsuit figure. Yes, even iced coffee can be a threat.
Although a simple iced coffee with skimmed milk in a sixteen ounce cup typically delivers less than 100 calories, when iced coffee is souped up with other ingredients it can become a real ”calorie bomb”. Here are some examples:
Starbucks’ Iced Caramel Macchiato with espresso, vanilla-flavored syrup, milk and caramel sauce over ice, venti size with whole milk: 370 calories
Dunkin’ Donuts’ Caramel Turtle Iced Latte (large size): 440 calories
Cold Stone Creamery’s Raspberry Truffle Iced Latte: 520 calories
Seattle’s Best Coffee’s Cold-Brewed Marble Mocha with whipped cream, white chocolate shavings, and chocolate drizzle, large size: 540 calories
McDonald’s McCafe Iced Caramel Mocha, large size with all the trimmings (whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and drizzle): 390 calories and 14 grams of fat
Baskin Robbins’ Iced Cappy Mocha Blast, large size: 610 calories and 10 grams of fat
With these diet-busting high calorie coffee drinks, if the caffeine doesn’t keep you awake, worrying about the added pounds probably will.
