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.”

Thank you so much for this!! I've printed it out and keep it in my car! Do you happen to know the points for a grande Matcha latte with almond milk? I get only 2 scoops of matcha powder instead of their regular 3. (I've been counting it as 4... 2 for almond milk and 2 for the matcha powder because i know it's sweetened)
