While it may be tempting to toss your diet in favor of your caffeine craving, you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. Fortunately, there are a few effective ways to make your coffee habit healthier—and no, that doesn’t mean you have to drink your coffee black.
A tall caffè latte with almond milk is one of the healthiest pick-me-ups on the Starbucks menu, according to Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD. Order it iced, and you’ll knock back only 50 calories, with 5 grams of carbohydrate and 3 grams of fat. You’ll even sneak in some nutritional benefits, too; one cup provides 25 percent of your daily calcium intake and 8 percent of the recommended daily value for vitamin A. And of course, don’t forget that hefty 75 mg of caffeine.
