    Starbucks' Holiday Drink Help
    Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
    "Nothing answers the cry of a cold morning during the holidays than a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha ." Find out what Nutritionist Elaine Magee says are good ways to enjoy a fun holiday drink at Starbucks' without loading on the fat and calories.

    What's your favorite Starbuck's (or any place else) drink?

    Mine is a vanilla bean frappuccino! A small one is around 250 calories, so I don't have many in a month.

    Pounds off since December 2009= 25lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.

    Thanks. This reminded me to look up the caramel brulee latte before ordering one. Glad I did since a tall with soy milk is 350 calories and 58 carbs. I will stick to hot tea

    Oh, I forgot to remove the whipped cream but still 270 with 52g of carbs for a tall.
