Iced lattes are so yummy. Espresso, milk, and flavoring make up this wonderful caffeinated beverage. Its slight taste of coffee pairs well with its other ingredients. Sometimes, topping an iced latte is whipped cream or something called sweet cream cold foam. 

Sweet cream cold foam is made from frothing milk without any heat so it can top iced beverages without melting. It is commonly made from non-fat milk and is so tasty with every sip of the coffee. If you are trying to cut back on your calorie intake, you could be wondering, does cold foam have calories?

Cold foam does have calories in it. Its calorie count all depends on the type of milk used and the amount of sugar that is added to it. For example, a Starbucks tall (the smallest size they serve) cold foam has 25 calories.

Does Cold Foam Have Calories? (How Many Does Iced Coffee Have?)

Lattes. This little cup of espresso and milk is a popular coffee drink. The word latte comes from the Italian phrase “caffe latte” which means “milk coffee”. 

It is rightfully named since a latte is mostly made up of milk. To make a latte, espresso is poured into a mug (or over ice for an iced latte) and then steamed/frothed milk (cold milk for iced lattes)  is poured over the espresso. Sometimes syrups are added in for flavoring. 

There you have it. A delicious mug of sweet caffeine.

Cold foam is a topping for iced coffee drinks like an iced latte. It can be plain milk or sweetener can be added for a sweet cold foam. Cold foam does have calories in it. 

The non-fat milk that is commonly used to make cold foam has about 80 calories per 8 ounces. When you add sugar and sweetener to this, that calories count can jump up to about 100. 

If you stick to plain non-fat milk then you will only drink a small amount of calories. It’s hard to say exactly how many calories are in cold foam as it varies depending on how much you add but it does contain some.

How Many Calories Are In A Serving Of Starbucks Cold Foam?

Starbucks cold brew is a favorite for their loyal customers. The light and airy topping is fluffy and tastes great with every sip of the coffee. They even have a sweet cold foam for those who have a sweet tooth. 

I already mentioned how cold foam contains calories. But how many calories does a Starbucks cold foam have in it?

A typical cold foam from Starbucks will have 25-40 calories depending on the size that you choose. This is just the calories for the cold foam that is on top of the drink. If your drink is sweetened, has sweetened drizzle on top, etc. then it will have many additional calories in that.

Starbucks is an icon in the coffee industry. With over a billion sales every year, they are the largest coffee chains worldwide. Founded in 1971, most if not all people can recognize that two-tailed mermaid that they have as a symbol anywhere. 

Starbucks serves up summer with a variety of coffee beverages. Anything from cappuccinos to cold brews is on the menu. Cold brews are delicious. They feature a light and airy topping known as cold foam. 

This topping is made by frothing cold non-fat milk until it is bubbly and fluffy.

Sweet cream cold foam is great for iced coffee drinks because since it is made with cold milk, it doesn’t melt. It stays on top of the coffee so it can be enjoyed with every sip. Cold foam doesn’t have a lot of calories in it but it does have some. 

A Starbucks cold foam will have anywhere from 40 to 100 calories. This all depends on the type of cold foam it is. If it is small and made with just milk, then this calorie count will be less. If it is larger with added sweetener then of course, the calorie count will be more. 

On average a sweet cold foam from the famous Starbucks has 90 calories in a 12 ounce tall.

Is Cold Foam Healthy?

A frothy milk topping called sweet cream cold foam typically tops a large glass of coffee. As you drink the beverage you get a taste of the foam along with the coffee and flavoring in the drink. Cold brew is just so good. 

I already mentioned that it does have calories though a relatively small amount if it doesn’t contain sugar. But is cold foam healthy?

Cold foam isn’t necessarily healthy for you but it isn’t unhealthy to drink in moderation. It can become unhealthy when you add a lot of sugar to it to make the coffee topping sweet. 

A Starbucks cold brew with cold foam is just too good to pass up. But before you order one, you want to know more about if it is healthy for you. Regular cold foam is just frothed milk so it won’t harm your body in any way. It is even said that cold brew coffee (the coffee itself) can have some health benefits. 

Some of these include: boosted metabolism, mood lifting, and lowering risk for certain diseases, as well as it is easier on your stomach.

According to Healthline’s article, 9 Impressive Benefits of Cold-Brew Coffee (Plus How to Make It), Cold brew coffee has gained popularity among coffee drinkers in recent years. Instead of using hot water to draw out the flavor and caffeine of coffee beans, cold brew coffee relies on time by steeping them in cold water for 12–24 hours. This method makes the drink less bitter than hot coffee. Though most research on the health benefits of coffee uses hot brew, cold brew is thought to offer many similar effects.

Cold brew coffee is an enjoyable alternative to hot coffee that you can easily make at home. It offers many of the same health benefits but is less acidic and less bitter, which may make it more easily tolerated by sensitive individuals. If you want to mix up your coffee routine, give cold brew coffee a try and see how it compares to your usual hot cup of joe.”

Final Thoughts

Cold foam topping isn’t unhealthy to drink in moderation. It is even said that the cold brew coffee itself has some health benefits. Cold foam is delicious, but it does have calories in it. 

So, if you are watching your calorie intake drink iced lattes with cold foam just every once in  a while.
