White Sugar- Sweetening the bitterness of your morning joe with a spoonful of sugar is a classic method to bring balance to the drink. Unfortunately, sugar doesn't fulfill any nutritional need, and consuming too much can lead to many health risks, including diabetes and weight gain, according to registered dietitian Stefani Sassos.
Powdered Creamer - A combination of sweeteners, flavoring agents and partially hydrogenated oil (i.e., trans fat), coffee creamers can be a flavorful yet calorically dense addition to your cup. But they're also incredibly flammable, which should be a red flag.
Flavored Syrups - According to dieticians, many specialty coffee drinks pack in the added sugar and calories with around six shots of syrups or flavorings.
Whipped Cream-While a squirt of whipped cream won't dramatically increase your calorie count (it can range from about 30 to 80 calories per serving), this ingredient is often seen on especially sugary coffee concoctions rather than enjoyed on a simple Americano
