If your go-to takeaway coffee is a Costa latte on the way to work, you need to make sure you're synning this latte on the slimming world plan due to the fat from the milk.
A Costa latte has varying syns according to the size you get and any add-ins like syrup, on average you can expect a small takeaway Costa latte to have 7 syns per one which is half your daily syn allowance.
Down below, we've discussed how many Costa lattes you can have on the SW plan, syn values of Costa street coffee and some low syn alternative lattes from other high street coffee shops.
At 7 syns per Costa latte, you can have up to two small Costa lattes on the slimming world plan before using all your 15 syn daily allowance making them high in syns.
Costa lattes get their high syn value from full-fat milk which makes them high in calories, to save syns we recommend choosing small-sized lattes and pairing them with reduced-fat milk or non-dairy milk which can help to reduce syns/calories.
Costa has a huge range of coffees with varying syns if you want to change up your order and make it more SW friendly.
If you find Costa lattes to be too high in syns, there are plenty of other low syn alternatives to have to get your caffeine kick in the morning.
We've listed some options below.
To conclude, Costa lattes are high in syns, especially if they are made with full fat milk, starting at 7 syns per one which is half your 15 syn daily allowance. In order to reduce syns we suggest choosing reduced fat milk or non-dairy milk which can help to lower calories.
