How Many Syns In A Costa Latte? Is It High In Syns? - Our Slimming World Syn Guide!

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.

Is A Costa Latte High In Syns?

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.

How Many Costa Lattes Can I Have On Slimming World?

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.
