NutriPro Portion Awareness - A Lighter Option

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Extra fats and sweeteners have become commonplace  in today’s coffee drinks, but there are some simple ways  to dial back the calories.

Here's how:

  • Hold the toppings. Make a habit of  serving coffee drinks without the extra  sugar, saving whipped cream, chocolate  syrup, and caramel sauce for desserts.
  • Offer smaller sizes. A 3-ounce serving  of espresso or an 8-ounce serving of  coffee can be exquisitely satisfying  when you use quality ingredients and  beautiful cups.
  • Use non-fat or low-fat milk.  Switching from full-fat or 2% milk  can reduce both fat and calories.
  • Dust with flavor. A shaker of  cinnamon or cocoa powder lets  guests adjust the taste of their drinks without overloading  on calories.
