Whether its a cold winter day, a bleak monday morning or a "just because"  occasion, nothing beats a coffee. there are a few rules of thumb for slimming worlders when it comes to saving syns. 

  • Bring sweeteners or sugar-free syrups Like this one in your handbag. (or you can ask at the counter about sugar free syrups)
  • Where possible, use the healthy A allowance for milk:
    • 350 mls skimmed milk
    • 250 mls semi skimmed / low fat milks
    • 175 mls for whole milk
    • 500ml of almond milk ( up to 1 litre for certain brands)
    • 300ML of Soya milk (up to 500mL for certain brands)
  • Regular coffees / Americano with no sugar is of course, syn free. This includes iced versions.
