It’s so easy to think of milk based coffees like lattes, cappuccino and flat whites as just drinks that don’t really count towards your kilojoules.
But when you realise that even the smallest sizes have around the same kilojoules as a slice of bread, medium potato, small yogurt or a piece of fresh fruit, it becomes clear that they are really more like a mid-meal.
And then if you order a medium sized coffee, it’s one and a half times more and a large is double.
So it might make you re-think about whether to add a coffee to your morning or afternoon tea snack, or to just have it instead?
Piccolo lattes can be a good alternative. They still give you the coffee, but not so much milk and far fewer kilojoules.
