8 Starbucks Drinks That Have Over 300 Calories

If you’re trying to stay trim and slim, you’re likely making an effort to exercise and eat a clean diet. One place where calories can sneak up on you is your beverages. Drinks can have as much, if not more, calories than some of your meals. Substituting sugary drinks for low-calorie beverages can shave roughly 650 calories from your diet, so it’s worth paying more attention to the liquids you drink. If Starbucks drinks are one of your guilty pleasures, you’ll need to be especially careful about unintentionally ordering a high-calorie drink. Here are some Starbucks drinks that could derail your diet.
