There is nothing better than an ice cold drink in the summer, and with the ease and accessibility of the mobile order service at Starbucks (and their plans to launch a nationwide delivery service), you can bet that more people than ever will be lining up for Iced Refreshers, Shaken Tea Lemonades, and Frappuccinos this summer.

If you are not mindful of the menu, those sweet treats can add up fast in the calorie department. The good news is, unlike the hot Starbucks holiday drinks we know and love, their iced refreshments are lighter and lower in calories—perfect for a day in the sun.

Plain black coffee lends itself well to a low-cal diet, but sometimes beach days and summer vacations call for something a bit more exciting. Luckily, the Starbucks website makes it easy to learn the nutrition facts of everything on the menu and even lets you experiment with different milk options to help you choose a drink that fits your dietary needs. They also have a drink order for every zodiac sign, if that is your thing. In preparation for summer, we rounded up our favorite iced summer drinks under 100 calories.

Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher

Tall: 80 Calories

Grande: 90 Calories

Sip on a sweet strawberry refresher accented with the flavors of passion fruit, acai, and real strawberry pieces. Green coffee extract in the drink gives you a bold boost of caffeine.

Iced Starbucks Blonde Caffe Latte with Almond Milk

Tall: 50 Calories

Grande: 70 Calories

Venti: 100 Calories

The Starbucks Blonde Roast is the perfect light flavor for summer. In this drink, blonde espresso is combined with ice and your choice of milk for a light and slightly sweet coffee drink. Order it with almond or coconut milk for a lower calorie coffee boost.

Shaken Peach Citrus White Tea Infusion

Tall: 30 Calories

Grande: 45 Calories

Venti: 60 Calories

This fruity iced drink starts with Teavana white tea and the added flavors of rose hips, hibiscus, and peach to create a drink that totally screams summer. All of the calories come from the added sweetener, so order it without liquid cane syrup for a zero calorie treat in any size.

Iced Skinny Flavored Latte

Tall: 60 Calories

Grande: 80 Calories

Swap out your normal coffee order for a skinny flavored latte. Order a skinny latte and swap in nonfat milk and sugar-free syrup in any flavor for a sweet drink that comes totally free of guilt.

Shaken Iced Pina Colada Tea Infusion

Tall: 60 Calories

Grande: 80 Calories

This Shaken Tea Infusion combines the bold flavors of pineapple black tea with sweet and creamy coconut milk to create a summer treat that is totally worthy of a beach day. Starbucks describes this one as summer in a cup, and we totally agree.

Iced Caffe Americano

Tall: 10 Calories

Grande: 15 Calories

Venti: 15 Calories

On summer days when you're really in need of a caffeine boost, opt for the iced Americano. A Grande comes with three espresso shots, but you can add as many extra shots as you want. And with so few calories, there is plenty of room to add a pump or two of your favorite flavor.

Very Berry Hibiscus Lemonade Refresher

Tall: 90 Calories

The Starbucks Refreshers are one of our favorite summer treats. This one is made from a scrumptious blend of real fruit juice, whole blackberries, green coffee extract, and lemonade. To cut down on the calories, order the Berry Refresher with water instead of lemonade for a fruity boost of caffeine with less added sugar.

Iced Starbucks Blonde Flat White with Coconut Milk

Tall: 60 Calories

Grande: 90 Calories

We love a hot flat white in the winter, but we cannot wait to try this summer concoction. Order an iced flat white with coconut milk for a bit of subtle sweetness with just the right amount of tropical coconut flavor.

Starbucks Blonde Caramel Cloud Macchiato with Almond Milk

Short: 100 Calories

Last month, Starbucks released two new Cloud Macchiatos, and we had to taste test them. Spoiler alert: We loved both flavors. And luckily for all of us, if you order the Caramel Cloud Macchiato with almond milk, it comes in at exactly 100 calories for a short size.

Pineapple Black Tea Infusion Lemonade

Tall: 50 Calories

Grande: 70 Calories

Venti: 100 Calories

The Pineapple Black Tea may be our favorite new menu item at Starbucks. This drink is the perfect combination of sweet and strong, and when infused with lemonade it's seriously delicious. This one tastes just like summer!

Blonde Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Latte

Short: 90 Calories

This latte first hit the Starbucks menu last summer and it was an instant hit. The latte is made with real vanilla beans and frothed coconut milk, all topped with Starbucks Blonde Espresso. It has 90 calories in a short, and only 110 calories in a tall.

Nitro Cold Brew with Cascara Cold Foam

Tall: 60 Calories

Grande: 80 Calories

The Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew is quickly gaining popularity, so we're pretty sure this iced beverage is going to be the new drink of summer. The Nitro Cold Brew is served straight out of the tap and topped with cold foam and a Cascara topping for a hint of sweet brown sugar flavor.

Iced Cappuccino with Cold Foam

Tall: 40 Calories

Grande: 100 Calories

You can never go wrong with a basic cappuccino, and we are loving this iced version topped with a delicious layer of frothy cold foam. It is low in sugar, carbohydrates, and calories, so you can feel better about logging this in your meal tracking app.
