However much we love Starbucks’ caramel macchiatos, we don’t drink them with our health in mind.

But if we are keeping an eye on how many calories we’re consuming, well, we still need our coffee fix.

Which is why Starbucks is launching two new coffee drinks in the UK which it says are both lower in calories than the average coffee drink it sells.

Introducing the Cappuccino Freddo and Cold Brew Vanilla sweet cream, which are both to launch in UK stores starting today.


The Freddo is espresso topped with foam made from skimmed milk, while the Cold Brew Vanilla is a combination of vanilla syrup and semi-skimmed milk with cold brew coffee (perfect for summer).

And in other Starbucks-related news, the company has also announced that its existing Nitro Cold Brew – which is 26 calories – will soon in a further 100 stores across the country this summer and no longer just in select London stores.


“London is one of the most competitive coffee markets and so we’re delighted to bring this to our customers here first, with plans to bring it to more stores around the country this summer,” Maria Sebastian, senior vice president for brand at Starbucks for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, told The Independent.

We’re delighted too, Maria.
