Swap out the milk for nonfat milk or a non-dairy alternative such as soymilk, coconutmilk, almondmilk or oatmilk
Ask for fewer pumps of syrup or select sugar-free Vanilla syrup
Ask for less whip or no whip to save anywhere from 80-110 calories depending on the size and type of drink.
Request nonfat milk or a non-dairy alternative such as soymilk, coconutmilk, almondmilk or oatmilk.
Try a sweetener substitute such as SPLENDA® or Stevia.
Try a cold foam with sugar-free vanilla syrup.
Choose from milk alternatives such as soymilk, coconutmilk, almondmilk and oatmilk.
