Calories in Starbucks Christmas drinks 2021

Eggnog latte

The eggnog latte is the DON of Christmas drinks and I won’t hear a bad word said against it. Don’t be put off by the egg part of eggnog – it’s basically just very velvety milk. You can’t make this one vegan or switch the milk, unfortunately, which also means opportunities to cut down on calories are limited. But it’s worth it.

An eggnog latte is probably best kept for a treat as it’s not low in calories and has a crazy amount of sugar.

If you’re trying to keep the calories low, opt for a tall made with almond milk, which comes in at 141 calories. Starbucks publish their nutritional information accounting for whipped cream, so to drive down the calories even more ask for it without. Although you will then be sacrificing the delicious toffee nut sprinkles, so…

Instead of looking at what’s got the lowest calories (you can probably guess that by now, right?), let’s look at what to stay away from if you’re watching your calories – a venti fudge brownie hot chocolate made with whole milk is 461 calories with a whopping 62g of sugar. That’s almost 15 teaspoons of sugar. Yikes.
