I love a little Starbucks fix as much as the next person, but if you’re someone who’s trying to eat healthy (perhaps following a low-sugar or low-fat diet), there are plenty of Starbucks menu items you should probably avoid ordering. A lot of Starbucks’ goodies are goodies for a reason – they’re often packed with excess calories, sugar, and fats you’d never guess were in their drinks and snacks until you dive deep into their nutritional facts.

These 14 bevs and food items are definitely things you should never order at Starbucks if you’re trying to be your healthiest self. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself every once in a while, but if you hit up the drive-thru regularly, you won’t want to opt for these picks.

First up, let’s take a look at the unhealthiest drinks!

(All the nutritional content listed with the drinks below are based on a grande size.)


Drinks

Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Starbucks

Cinnamon Dolce Latte

A grande iced version of this drink has 300 calories and 35 grams of sugar. Yow!

White Mocha

Starbucks

White Mocha

White Mochas are so good, but they’re packed with sweetness. A grande iced version has 390 calories and 42 grams of sugar, while a grande hot version has 390 calories and 46 grams of sugar. That’s more than your daily suggested amount in a single drink!

Mocha

Mocha

Regular Mochas (mmm, chocolate) are about the same. A grande iced version has 350 calories and 30 grams of sugar. A grande hot version has 370 calories and 35 grams of sugar.

Caramel Macchiato

Starbucks

Caramel Macchiato

Caramel Macchiatos are so very tasty. They’re one of my favorite drinks! But, a grande hot version has 250 calories and 33 grams of sugar. Talk about a rush!

Summer-Berry Lemonade Starbucks Refresher

Starbucks

Summer-Berry Lemonade Starbucks Refresher

Though this new boba sip has 160 calories, a grande still costs you 37 grams of sugar. The rest of the Summer-Berry lineup is also very high in sugar! The Summer Skies Refresher has 150 calories and 29 grams of sugar, while the regular Summer Berry Refresher has 110 calories and 25 grams of sugar.

Spicy Strawberry Refresher

Starbucks

Spicy Strawberry Refresher

The new-ish spicy Refreshers are unsurprisingly sugary. A grande size of the strawberry flavor holds 200 calories and 43 grams of sugar. Plus it’s not super tasty, anyways, so you won’t be missing out on much.

Pink Drink

Starbucks

Pink Drink

Pink Drink lovers, I’m sorry to let you know this bev is bursting with sugar. Though it’s fairly low on calories (140 calories), a grande has 25 grams of sugar.

Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

Starbucks

Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

You can probably infer from the name of this drink that it’s one of the unhealthiest Starbucks items. The Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino alone is 480 calories and has 55 grams of sugar.

Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino

Starbucks

Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino

This Frappuccino measures up similarly. It has 470 calories and 60 grams of sugar! Honestly, all of the Starbucks Frapps are very high in calories and sugar, so it might be best to not order them if you are trying to eat healthy.

Lavender Cr\u00e8me Frappuccino

Starbucks

Lavender Crème Frappuccino

The same guidelines go for the Lavender Crème Frappuccino. This purple pick has 370 calories and 52 grams of sugar.

Food Items

Bacon, Sausage & Egg Wrap

Starbucks

Bacon, Sausage & Egg Wrap

Next, we’re onto food! This breakfast wrap is loaded, and it’s wild. This pick has 640 calories and 33 grams fat. It also has 28 grams of protein, if you are into counting your protein intake.

More than anything, I wouldn’t recommend ordering this because more often than not, I would receive it already falling apart in the bag. Not great! Though this food item isn’t my fave, I cant really speak down on any of the breakfast sammies. I love them.

Bagels

Starbucks

Bagels

The bagels from Starbucks (available in Plain or Everything) aren’t all that bad for you, but I would avoid ordering them altogether just because they’re not very yummy, and you could find a better bagel literally anywhere else. Sorry Starbies.

Double Chocolate Brownie

Starbucks

Double Chocolate Brownie

This is one of the highest sugar food items you can get. This brownie (though it’s sooo yum) has 480 calories, 37 grams of sugar, and 28 grams of fat. Eek!

Banana Walnut & Pecan Loaf

Starbucks

Banana Walnut & Pecan Loaf

Don’t let the ‘banana’ fool you in this food pick. This loaf contains 410 calories, 28 grams of sugar, and 20 grams of fat.
