Customize Your Coffee-Bar Beverages for Calorie Savings

Many coffee bars deliver a wide selection of hot beverages, from lattes and cappuccinos to hot mocha drinks and creamy tea. But with all these there is a risk of racking up more calories than was bargained for. While black coffee (no milk, no sugar) is calorie-free, specialty coffees and teas are far from it. That's because they are typically blends of whole milk or 2 percent milk and sugary syrups, some even come topped with whipped cream, making them better fit for dessert than for a coffee break.
