|WORST: Whipped coffee drinks |
When made with 2% milk, a large icy cup of Joe can contain up to 800 calories and a third of the maximum recommended intake for artery-clogging saturated fat. And there's a reason why it tastes so sweet: At 170 grams of sugar in a typical drink, you get more of a sugar shock than a caffeine buzz.
|BEST: Chilled green tea|
It's calorie free and loaded with antioxidants that bring health and beauty benefits, including protection against heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, high blood pressure and overall aging. One study found that the cells of regular tea drinkers have a younger biological age than those of non-drinkers. If you're not crazy about the taste, freeze 100% fruit juice in ice cube trays and toss them in. They'll add color and flavor as they melt.
