As tasty as Starbucks drinks can be, some of them aren’t the healthiest options. With added sugar, calories, and saturated fat, some of these options can sabotage a healthy diet and add way beyond the recommended daily sugar intake.

For those who want to avoid alarming amounts of sugar sneaking their diets, you’re better off without some of the items in the list below. You’re welcome!

Matcha Green Tea Crème Frappuccino

When consumed in its natural state, Matcha green tea is a healthy drink and an excellent alternative for coffee. But this Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino listed on Starbucks ’ menu, you might want to pass.

This option is a mix of cream, sugar, and some other artificial ingredients. In a 16 oz serving of whipped cream and whole milk, there’s 9 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat, 62 g of sugar and 240 mg of sodium.

Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

The fruit added to this beverage might one think is a healthy option, isn’t it? With sweet mango flavor and authentic pieces of dragon fruit on it, would you guess that there’s a staggering amount of added sugar? 19 g per serving, to be more precise.

White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino

White chocolate is made with yellow vegetable fat from a cocoa bean that isn’t actually chocolate and 60% sugar! To make things even sweeter (not to say worst), this White Chocolate Frappuccino contains 420 calories per serving, plus 17g of fat and 61g of sugar.

S'mores Crème Frappuccino
