Watch your drink calories during the holidays! We all like our special beverages, just be sure to balance it with consistent exercise and good eating habits.

The most popular holiday drink at Starbucks in November and December is the peppermint mocha. Here's the stats on that and a few other holiday time drinks:

  1. Peppermint mocha  16-ounce serving is 470 calories and 22 grams of fat (including 13 grams of saturated fat).  A better alternative would be a smaller one, a 12-ounce and order it with nonfat milk and no whipped cream. That drops the calories in half: 220 calories and 2 grams of fat (none of which are saturated).
  2. Pumpkin Spice Latte (coffeehouse) made with pumpkin spice flavors, espresso, steamed milk, and whipped cream. Per 16-ounce serving: 410 calories 51 g carbohydrate 17 g fat 10 g saturated fat 55 mg 
  3. Margarita-not my first idea of a holiday drink, but it is lower in calories than some! Made with limeade, tequila, triple sec, and ice it has per 9 ounce serving( not including ice): 408 calories 25 g carbohydrate 0 g fat 0 g saturated fat 0 mg
  4. White Russian, made with vodka, coffee liqueur, and 1 1/2 ounces liquid light whipping cream. Per serving: 355 calories (or 286 if you use half-and-half instead of whipping cream) 14 g carbohydrate 13 g fat (5 if using half-and-half) 8 g saturated fat (3 if using half-and-half)
  5. Eggnog (regular store-bought, not including any added liquor) Per 1-cup serving: 350 calories 34 g carbohydrate 19 g fat 11 g saturated fat 149 mg
  6. Hot Chocolate (coffeehouse), made with steamed milk, mocha syrup, vanilla syrup, and whipped cream) Per 12-ounce serving: 320 calories 38 g carbohydrate 16 g fat 9 g saturated fat
