Latte light

Are you hooked on large latte coffees? Well, their high calorie count may temper your cravings. A large latte can contain 250 to 570 calories.


Instead of foregoing your favourite coffee altogether, you can merely adjust your order:

  • Choose the smallest-sized cup, either 230 millilitres or 340 millilitres. This will spare you about 110 calories.
  • Order the latte with fat-free milk and save about 80 calories and eight grams of fat.
  • Use sugar substitutes instead of sugar.
  • Skip the whipped cream, flavoured syrup, and chocolate or chocolate toppings.
