How many calories are in your coffee?

Many of us forget to count the calories (kJs) in our morning coffee. Find out how many calories there are in lattes, frappes and cappuccinos.

Drinking milk is the most natural thing in the world – it’s about the first thing we actively do as babies, after all. And you should be drinking milk to ward off osteoporosis.

But many of us forget to count the calories in our mochas (oh okay, just one marshmallow) towards our daily energy intakes, with the two-a-day latte set sipping enough kJs to add an extra kilo in around three weeks.

We’re not suggesting giving up the beans, but consider skim milk in frothy bevs (it foams better, anyway), skip the cream topping and marshies, and think about swapping the second cup for café au tearoom.
