Milk of choice: Request nonfat milk or non-dairy soymilk, almondmilk or coconutmilk to adjust the calories or fat.

Swap your syrup: Select sugar-free vanilla syrup for great flavor without added calories or sugar.

Ask for fewer pumps: Ask for less syrup to help reduce the sweetness and calories in any beverage.

Adjust the toppings: If your Frappuccino comes with toppings, like caramel drizzle or cookie crumble topping, ask a barista to adjust or omit to save on calories.
