The Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) White Chocolate Mocha with 2% milk and whipped cream is more than a mere cup of coffee. It's worse than a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Few people have room in their diets for 580 calories and 15 grams of saturated fat that this hefty beverage supplies. But you can save 130 calories and two-thirds of the bad fat if you order it with nonfat milk and no whipped cream.
Your better off ordering a plain coffee or expresso. If you love the more colorful drinks then always ask for "non fat" or "skinny" and/or sugar free.
So when I pass out gift cards to Starbucks or take everyone to Starbucks ask yourself if that fattening drink is really worth the hour of intense boot camp training you just completed!
