Iced Coffee Calorie Bombs

Iced CoffeeFast 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.
