Do you know how many calories are in your morning coffee?

If you’re like many of us mums, you probably can’t imagine life without your morning cup of coffee.

But depending on what you order, there can be a huge difference in the amount of calories that you are consuming with your caffeine.

Calories in Coffee

The good news is that a relatively ‘normal’ coffee from the café such as a flat white, latte or cappuccino will set you back less than 170 calories (under 130 for skim milk).

The fat and sugar content comes from the milk rather than from any added extras. For the lowest calorie option of all, a black coffee is the way to go at just 3 calories per cup.

It’s when we take a look at some of the hot drinks made with full fat milk, syrups, cream and sweeteners from some popular cafes that you can see the calories, fat and sugar content for some of them is much higher than you may have realised.

All of the calories below are based on the medium sized coffee available, using full cream milk.
