Starbucks Nutrition: Chocolate Beverages
Article by Diet Bites
Starbucks Chocolate Drinks
And they have quite a few selections on their extensive menu. If we're looking at the Short Size which is basically a one cup serving, if we order the Hot Chocolate prepared with 2% milk, it will contain about 150 calories. If we order it with non-fat milk, the calories decrease to 130.
It we order the Hot Chocolate with whole milk and topped off with whipped cream, the calories almost double to 230 - but even so, that's a minimal amount for such a delicious treat. We can enjoy one even when we are watching our weight - in moderation. And that simply means that we can enjoy a Hot Chocolate with whipped cream every once in a while.
There is one more option for Hot Chocolate on the Starbucks menu - ordered at the 12 ounce size and prepared with non-fat milk and topped with whipped cream. This is a cup and a half serving - and for only twenty more calories than the small prepared with whole milk. I'll take one, please!
The other chocolate drinks on the menu contain a bit more calories than the Hot Chocolate.
