1.When you’re feeling healthy: Order the Shaken Sweet Tea. For a Grande at only 100 calories, you can enjoy some chilled Sweet tea that will give you that southern summertime feeling.

3. When you’re feeling that ‘3 o’clock’ time at work and need some energy: Order the Doubleshot on Ice. With 225mg of caffeine, and at only 100 calories for a Grande, you should be up and running.

4. When you’re feeling happy because it’s Friday: Order the Very Berry Hibiscus. You can order a Trenta, for 150 calories! Yes, you read that right. This treat contains real fruit juice and blackberries shaken with Green Coffee Extract for a healthy boost of natural energy.

5. When you’re craving something sweet and salty but want to keep it at 250 calories: Order the Iced Caramel Macchiato. The drink is made up of espresso, vanilla-flavored syrup, milk, ice, and topped off with caramel drizzle on top. Not so bad for 250 calories.
