Weekly Dietitian Tip: Heathier Peppermint Mocha

Bolthouse Farms is a brand I recommend a lot when it comes to salad dressings, but they also have healthier versions of holiday drinks! 

A “short” size at Starbucks provides 8 oz, or, 1 cup. A short peppermint mocha from Starbucks provides: 270 calories, 11 grams of total fat, and 37 grams of added sugar.  It is worth noting that most people will order a “grande”, or “venti”, which would double and triple the nutrition information, respectively.  

The Bolthouse Farms peppermint mocha provides the following nutrition for 1 cup: 130 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat, and 12 grams of added sugar.  

Remember to always read nutrition labels and drink calories sparingly.  

Happy Holidays!
