Tips to cut holiday drink calories:
1. Hold the Whip: Whipped cream adds about 50 to 110 calories and 5 to 11g of fat to your drink.
2. Switch to Skim Milk: Save up to 200 calories by choosing skim milk over whole milk! Honestly, you cannot even taste the difference!
3. Keep it Small: Portion control is also important when being mindful of calorie intake . Opt for a small drink instead of a large and enjoy every moment of it!
4. Keep it Simple: try just a regular cup of coffee with nonfat milk and for an afternoon pick me up. Add a few shakes of cinnamon to spice up your guilt free drink!
