We have to talk.
So my morning Starbucks run has turned into a daily thing since my coffee maker AND keurig have both called it quits. Currently waiting for my new coffee maker to arrive and in the meantime just getting caffeine whenever I can. My go to drink? Americano misto with soy.
My bestie Tyson messaged me the other day a screenshot of this article from Self Magazine…. What Nutritionists Really Think About Starbucks’ New Almond Milk.
They go on to praise the new Starbucks almond milk but what REALLY caught my attention was the nutritional information they reveal of ALL the non-dairy milk options….
One cup of Starbucks’ almondmilk contains: 60 calories, 4 grams fat, 110 mg sodium, 5 grams carbohydrate, 1 gram fiber, 3 grams sugar, and 2 grams of protein. In comparison, a cup of the coconut milk at Starbucks delivers 8.5 grams of sugar, while the soy milk packs in 13.5 grams of sugar per cup. In addition, the new almond milk delivers 30 percent of the daily value of calciumand vitamin D, 10 percent of the daily value of vitamin A, and 2 percent of the daily value for iron.
HOLD UP WAIT A FREAKIN’ MINUTE.
My morning coffee has just turned into a cup of sugar. And I am just finding this out NOW?!
Well no wonder those last 5 lbs won’t get out of here.
Now maybe I’m slow to the almondmilk train here or maybe you already order almondmilk but weren’t aware of the actual calorie facts.
IN CONCLUSION, GET THE ALMOND MILK.
Save yourselves. Save your friends. Say no to the sugar.
If you’re nodding along let me hit you with another whopper that Tyson texted me….
“Also just found out a PSL, almond milk, no whip has 38 GRAMS OF SUGAR WTF”.
Even WITH the almondmilk substitution.
This is why I’m sharing my PSL hack with you that will keep our pumpkin spice cravings in check along with our blood glucose levels & waistlines.
