Just How Fattening Is Starbucks' New Delish Granita Drink?

You guys: There’s a new line of drinks at and they might just be rivaling the in terms of buzz.

Dubbed the “Granita,” these drinks appear on the new Starbucks Sunset Menu (which is available after 3 p.m.). But let’s get to the important stuff—what’s in them? According to a Starbucks spokesperson, the granitas are “subtly-sweetened, finely-shaved ice topped off with bold espresso, white tea, or refreshing lemonade.” They come in three flavors—Caramel Espresso, Teavana Youthberry White Tea, and Strawberry Lemon Limeade. They’re basically like slushies for adults (but sadly, with no alcohol).

So where do Granitas fall on the nutritional spectrum? Well, the bad news is that there's sugar galore. For the record, the World Health Organization recommends consuming no more than about 25 grams of added sugar a day. You'll come close to that limit—or even exceed it—with even a "tall" Granita. On the other hand, this bevvie is actually better in the calorie and fat department than a lot of other iced Starbucks offerings, so there's that.
