It’s pretty much impossible to avoid Starbucks (and I’m not just saying that because there is one on literally every block!) The truth is, whether you’re picking the perfect low-key spot to catch up with old friends or are rushing to an appointment and need a quick coffee fix along the way, Starbucks is an essential part of urban life. However between their deliciously sugary frappuccinos and whipped cream topped coffee treats it can be a challenge to feel like you’re not cheating your diet when picking what to order at Starbs. If the thought of a super high calorie order has your head spinning about whether you should sub Starbucks for your next meal luckily that worry is about to become a thing of the past! These three healthy and delicious orders will guarantee a guilt-free and totally enjoyable Starbucks experience.
