Dunkin’ Donuts is known for its rivalry with Starbucks, another popular coffee chain, and the brand’s slogan, “America runs on Dunkin'”. While this is effective advertising, running on Dunkin’s could be hazardous to your health. Many coffee beverages come with more than your much-needed caffeine kick; they contain lots of calories, sugar, and fat. However, there are healthier alternatives for those of you coffee lovers! Here are Dunkin’ Donuts’s coffee drinks under 200 calories.
These were all based on a 10-ounce cup on the Dunkin’ Donuts website.
Regular and Decaf- 16 cals, 0 from fat.
Coffee with Cream- 70 calories, 50 from fat.
Coffee with Cream and Sugar- 120 calories, 50 from fat.
Coffee with Milk- 35 calories, 10 from fat.
Coffee with Milk and Sugar- 80 calories, 10 from fat.
Coffee with Skim- 20 calories, 0 from fat.
Coffee with Skim and Sugar- 70 calories, 0 from fat.
Coffee wigh Sugar- 60 calories, 0 from fat.
Your best bet is to get one of the 10-ounce regular or decaf coffees from Dunkin’ Donuts with 2% milk and just a small amount of sugar. If you notice, the cream and sugar add lots of unnecessary, empty calories. Drinking your coffee with 2% milk gives you calcium; neither the cream or sugar provide you with anything beneficial nutrient-wise.
These cold, blended beverages are available in a variety of flavors; however, there are only two coolattas under 200 calories.
Coffee Coolatta with 2% milk- 190 calories, 20 from fat.
Coffee Coolatta with Skim Milk- 170 calories, 0 from fat.
If calories from fat are your main concern, go with the skim milk. Otherwise, get your calcium count in with the 2% milk. Either way, go light with the cream or get none at all. The coffee coolatta with cream comes in at an astounding 350 calories, with 200 of those calories from fat.
Pumpkin Spice (small)- 160 calories, 45 from fat.
Vanilla Spice (small)- 130 calories, 50 from fat.
Vanilla Spice (medium, which is 14-ounces)- 190 calories, 80 from fat.
All of Dunkin’ Donuts’s other 10-ounce flavored coffees (from basic Hazelnut to bizarre Blueberry) are only 20 calories, 0 from fat.

All of these are, again, based on a 10-ounce cup; however, a couple of the hot espresso beverages could be doubled in sized and still be under 200 calories.

Regular cappucino- 80 calories, 40 from fat.
Latte (with soy milk)- 90 calories, 30 from fat.
