2019 Starbucks Holiday Food and Drink Point Value Guide

Starbucks® 2019 seasonal items are NOW available!!

It’s that time of year…. Starbucks just released their 2019 holiday drink flavors: Gingerbread (not available this year in the USA but in Canada), Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Maple Pecan. The flavors are available hot, iced or as a blended Frappuccino. Keep in mind only the hot beverages come in the red cups.

Did you know Starbucks has over 170,000 ways to customize beverages? WOW! That can be very overwhelming trying to find a WW friendly option that fits your lifestyle. Here is a Starbucks Holiday Drink and Food WW guide to help make that decision a little more easier!

 Starbucks Customization Tips:

1. Select your milk: You can choose from whole, 2% milk or nonfat milk, or non-dairy alternatives such as soy, coconut and almond.

2. Choose how many pumps of syrup you want: To lower the points of your flavored beverage, ask for fewer pumps of syrup, or select a sugar-free syrup.

3. Ask for “less whip” or “no whip.”


Gingerbread:expresso, steamed choice of milk, gingerbread syrup 

Toasted White Chocolate Mocha:espresso, steamed choice of milk, white chocolate syrup 

Caramel Brulée Latte: espresso, steamed choice of milk, caramel brûlée syrup

Note: According to Starbucks, the Gingerbread Latte will not be available in the United States for 2019, but you’ll have the other holiday options. Starbucks says participating locations in Canada will have the Gingerbread holiday drink, so I’d make sure to grab one if you live in Canada or travel there this year.

Great info! Thank you! Can you tell me how many points in 1 pump of vanilla or caramel syrup? Sometimes I add that to a nonfat latte.

Thank you for a wonderfully helpful post. I don't want to tank my WW program, but of course I want to indulge a little in my holiday favorites. There's enough information in your blog post to allow me to craft a drink that won't kill my SmartPoint balance. Also, I now know if I really want that Holiday Turkey and Stuffing Panini, I could split it with my daughter, save half for another day, or use weeklies.

Starbucks has discontinued Sugar Free Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. They have taken all of the Skinny lattes out of the mobile app. You can still order a Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte by selecting a plain latte, swapping out the milk, and adding the SF syrup (while it's still available), but I got confirmation from corporate that it is discontinued. I am so disappointed. I didn't think there were enough lower calorie options as it was, but I guess I'll be saving a lot of money and making lattes at home.

Thanks so much for this Lindsay!! I am many others appreciate all the amazing work you put forth to help us all out! I have a clarifying question. When you list the milks and the points values as 8, 12, and 16oz are they going to most likely be for the tall, grande, and venti because the remaining 4oz will be for the espresso and flavoring? Thanks again!!

Hi Danille,

You're so very welcome! Yes, that is correct. The ounces are for the milk ounces not for the cup size. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much!
