Mommy's Must-Have Moments: Iced Coffee

Which iced coffee drink contains fewer calories?

Iced blended coffees seem to be increasing in popularity, and why not? They're sweet, refreshing, and give you a little pick-me-up. But unlike plain coffee, they're also full of sugar, fat, and calories. These two cool coffees sound similar, but which one won't tip the calorie scale?

The Low-Cal Winner
Dunkin Donuts Iced Mocha Swirl Latte

By choosing the Dunkin Donuts drink, you'll save 350 calories and 15 grams of fat. Their 16-ounce Iced Mocha Swirl Latte contains 240 calories and 8 grams of fat--not bad as an occasional treat. DQ's Mocha MooLatte will have you saying, "Moo!" With a whopping 590 calories and 23 grams of fat, you'd likely blow your calorie budget for the rest of the day. Make any coffee drink healthier by choosing skim milk instead of cream and holding the whip.
