Tall Americano or brewed coffee sweetened with Splenda. That's about the extent of my Starbucks indulgence, even though I live in its city of origin -- good ol' Seattle. And to be honest, it's one of my least favorite coffee places in the city. Before T1 I would sometimes order an old fashioned doughnut to go with my coffee as a special treat, but have been staying away from that lately.
Americano, coffee+ espresso, seems to have 3G of carbs
For a real treat, try a latte made with heavy cream and perhaps a couple squirts of favorite sugar free syrup. Almost no carbs and all the goodness of their regular latte offerings.
Heavy cream has 3 g of carbs in a cup. I don't have to bolus for that.
I'll be darned, I have some in the fridge and just assumed that it was like milk but it says 0G of carbs!
I was totally the same way! I had been going out of my way to get non-dairy creamer only to find out that it had MORE carbs in it than the half-n-half I had been avoiding! I laughed.
But a cup of heavy cream has about 800 calories compared to about 150 for whole milk, so I rarely go for the cream. . . .or the milk for that matter.
I find that in my case, following a low carb diet, calories don't matter. I can eat sticks of butter and cups of heavy cream and I don't gain weight.
I don't go anywhere like the chain coffee houses. I order a flat white coffee in most places, sometimes a macchiato coffee if I need something a little stronger.
