How Many Calories In Half And Half?

Half and Half is a delicious cream that is used in food recipes and coffee based drinks. No one thinks too much about how Half and Half could be robbing them of their weight loss goals, but the calories in Half and Half do add up quickly. So how many calories in Half and Half are there? Lets find out.

One tablespoon has 20 calories and 2 grams of fat. It also has 1.1 grams of saturated fat, .7 grams of carbs and 6 mg of cholesterol. This number of calories does not sound like much they really add up especially if you use it in your coffee. Lets say you drink three cups of coffee per day and use 2 tablespoons for each cup. That's an additional 120 calories per day as well and 12 grams of fat.

Half and Half is one of those things that does not provide quality calories. It has no redeeming value because there are no vitamins and nutrition in it. If you are going to use half and half in your recipes or drinks then consider using low fat or fat free half and half. It contains just a fraction of the fat, calories, and cholesterol found in regular half and half.

Knowing how many calories in half and half may surprise you, but it is important to know the number of calories you are ingesting in order to keep you on the right path.
