It's the age-old question. You're standing in line at Starbucks (or ordering on your phone) and are faced with the ultimate dilemma. Do you indulge and treat yourself to something sweet and tasty—or stick with a healthier but somewhat boring black coffee?

You no longer have to deprive yourself of a coffee treat to cut down on sugar and calories. We've crunched the numbers (and the flavors!) to find the healthiest Starbucks drink.

No, it's not plain black coffee or tea!

For even more lightened-up inspiration, check out our list of all of the healthy Starbucks drinks.

Meet the caffe misto—it's half rich coffee, half steamed milk and fully delish. It's one of the healthiest things on the Starbucks menu and gives you that creamy latte feel with far fewer calories.

The caffe misto usually comes with 2% milk and has 110 calories, 10 grams of sugar, 4 grams of fat and 7 grams of protein. You can also order with skim milk to cut the fat or almond milk to cut the sugar.

We love this drink because it's healthy and simple with only two ingredients: black coffee plus dairy milk, almond milk or another non-dairy milk. The caffe misto is low in calories and fat, but still tastes like a rich latte because of the 1:1 ratio of coffee and milk.
