The Macro Barista’s Low-Calorie Starbucks Drink Recipes


Look, sometimes a black cold brew just won’t cut it. If you’re craving a sweet Starbucks drink or feel like trying one of the brand’s new sugary offerings without missing out on the extra calories, let us introduce you to your next episode of TikTok. Popping by @themacrobarista on TikTok and Instagram, Alex Moe is loved by low-calorie coffee lovers for his videos on ordering your favorite Starbucks beverages for far fewer calories.

The former Starbucks barista, who now runs his own cold brew brand, KNINE Coffee & Strength, often edits the original beverages, which typically contain over 200 to 300 calories, down to less than 100 to achieve the same delicious flavors. Just ask his followers – his comment section is awash with satisfied coffee drinkers who claim the macrofixed drinks taste just as good. As if his recipes weren’t helpful enough, Alex also films himself ordering the low-calorie versions as he drives through Starbucks. An added bonus for those who are a little overwhelmed by placing bespoke beverage orders with the coffee franchise!

Thanks to the Macro Barista, you can enjoy healthier alternatives to popular Starbucks drinks like pistachio latte and the new Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso. Check out some of his best recipes and visit his website for more information.
