Flavored Coffee Beans have become very popular in recent years. Walk down the aisle of any grocery store and you will find several coffee beans infused with flavors such as vanilla, raspberry, and dozens more. But that leads to the question, Does flavored coffee have calories? Lets take a look and find out.
Regular coffee beans have about 2 calories per cup. And that's with no flavor added. A cup of flavored coffee does have extra calories but not much. A typical cup has 5 calories in it. So that means you can enjoy a nice cup of flavored black coffee without worrying about drinking down a lot of calories.
As you can see, the flavoring in the beans is not the problem. Its when you add all the creams and syrups to the coffee that makes the calories add up. In fact, a typical espresso or latte drink from your favorite coffee shop can have hundreds of calories in it.
If you are one of those people who need to add sugar and cream to your flavored coffee you can add all natural Stevia sweetener and a little skim milk to keep the calories down yet accentuate the taste.
As always, to keep your calories low limit the amount of coffee you drink. Rather than going through an entire pot, drink one or two cups.
