When I hear of a beverage called a "Misto", I typically think of this:
But have you ever seen the "Caffe Misto" on the menu at Starbucks?
Last night I got a coupon in my email for $1 off of a breakfast sandwich at Starbucks. I also had earned my free drink with my gold card, so I treated myself to Starbucks this morning. The thing was, I didn't want to spend a ton of calories on my drink, and I wasn't feeling the heaviness of my usual soy latte.
I did, however, want something other than just plain coffee. What I really wanted was plain coffee with steamed soy milk in it. I did a little Googling and found that's exactly what the "Misto" is!! It's also known as "Cafe Au Lait" at most coffee shops. It's equal parts brewed coffee and steamed milk - exactly what I was looking for!
Here's the real bonus - it's a calorie saver!!!
Tall Soy Latte: 130 calories
Grande Soy Misto: 100 calories (If you're a skim milk drinker, it's 70 calories)
Yep, that's more drink for less calories!! It's also cheaper than a latte - around $2.50 for a grande!
Less money, less calories - more drink, same flavor?!? This is the best discovery I've made in a long time.
(P.S. - I got the Spinach Egg White Wrap - which is my favorite sandwich there - and only 280 calories!)
