Coffee and Mocha flavors combine in a summertime favorite of Iced Mocha Cappuccino.Coffee for health? You betcha! A large Harvard study found no increased heart attacks in long-time coffee drinkers. In addition, coffee may save lives! Coffee drinkers aged 55 to 69 who drank one to three cups of coffee a day were 24 percent less likely to die of heart disease than non-coffee drinkers, says a new analysis from a study of 27,000. The odds of dying from any cause during the study decreased about 15 percent.
Chai Latte vs. Caffe Mocha
When choosing a beverage from a specialty coffee shop, you may lean toward chai latte as the lower-calorie choice. After all, it's made with healthful tea, and the exotic moniker simply sounds healthier than coffee. However, a medium-sized (or "grande") chai latte -- a blend of black tea, steamed milk, honey and spices -- has the same amount of calories as the same-sized cafe mocha, even when made with skim milk. Both do provide a hefty dose of calcium -- about a quarter of the daily requirement -- though the mocha delivers 100 milligrams more.
Chai Latte (16 ounces made with skim milk):
- 230 calories
- 0 grams fat
- 250 milligrams calcium
Mocha Latte (16 ounces made with skim milk):
- 230 calories
- 2 grams fat
- 350 milligrams calcium
