I just discovered my new favorite Starbucks latte (Thanks CJ) – Chestnut Praline!

I’m not a huge fan of ‘froo froo’ holiday drinks or desserts, mainly because I find them all too sweet. But this one was just perfect!

However, my hips probably won’t care for the calories. I recently found an article on People, that enlightened me on what I didn’t care to know! And I’m in denial.

According to the Starbucks website, here are a few caloric facts you may not have known about…

  • Christmas Tree Frappuccino – 420 calories for 16oz.
  • Cinnamon Roll Frapp – 510 calories for 16oz.
  • Eggnog Frapp – 440 calories for 16 oz.
  • Brown Sugar Shortbread Creme Frapp – 430 calories for 16oz.
  • Chai Creme Frapp – 360 calories for 16oz.
  • Chestnut Praline Frapp – 330 calories for 16oz.
  • Gingerbread Frapp – 370 calories for 16oz.

 

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE…. Starbucks does say that if you’re still wanting to experience the Christmas Tree drink on a lighter diet, get the 12oz with nonfat milk and NO whipped cream… the total caloric intake then is…..120 calories total!!! Not bad at all.
