7 Tips Every Weight Watchers Member Should Know – If you are a WW member, you need to know these.
Best Low Point Coffee for Weight Watchers
How many points is coffee on Weight Watchers? Black coffee is zero points. Don’t forget that coffee itself is not limited on the WW plan, but it’s what you add to your coffee that can increase points.
Premier Protein – 2 pts per carton
Premier Protein is the best creamer for Weight Watchers because there is so much you can do with it. Premier Protein is just 2 points for a whole carton, and you only need anywhere from a couple tablespoons to 1/3 of a carton to make a cup of coffee taste like a real treat. Enjoy it hot or serve cold over ice for a frappe-like delight.
I personally love caramel flavor the most in coffee, but vanilla, latte and chocolate are also good.
You can get Premier Protein at wholesale places like Sam’s and Costco. It’s available at Walmart in the Pharmacy section.
Top Sugar Free Syrup for Coffee on WW – Zero Points
Torani Sugar Free Syrup Variety Pack for coffee, 25.4 Ounce (Pack of 4) one each of Sugar free: Vanilla, Caramel, Hazelnut and ChocolateTorani Sugar Free Syrup Variety Pack, 25.4 Ounce (Pack of 4)Starbucks Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup 12 FL OzJordan’s Skinny Syrups Sugar-Free, Mocha, 25.4 Ounce
If you need a bit of sweetness in your coffee without added sugar, these sugar-free syrups cannot be beat. (These do contain artificial sweeteners.)
Tip: Be sure you purchase the sugar-free variety. Full-sugar syrups are quite high in points.
Weight Watchers Coffee Creamers: Sugar Free Creamers – 0 – 1 point
Sugar free powdered coffee creamers are widely available and are 0 points for 4 tsp, making this one of the few zero point coffee creamer options.
Sugar free liquid creamers (found in the dairy section of your local grocery store) are typically 2 T – 1 point, although take care because it’s easy to pour much more than 2 T and the points can add up quickly. These are now available in a wide variety of flavors. Be sure you are grabbing the sugar-free variety for the lowest points.
Point for creamer are the same on MyWW Green, Blue, and Purple plans.
Coffee Mate Italian Sweet Cream Weight Watchers Points (regular) – 2 points for 1 T
Coffee Mate Italian Sweet Cream Weight Watchers Points (sugar-free) – 0 points for 1 T (another great zero point creamer option!), 1 point for 2 T
Coffee Mate Vanilla creamer (regular) – 2 points for 1 T
Coffee Mate Vanilla creamer (fat-free) – 1 point for 1 T
Natural Bliss Caramel almond milk creamer – 2 points for 1 T
Natural Bless Sweet creme coconut milk creamer – 2 points for 1 T
Splenda Hazelnut coffee creamer – 0 points for 1 T
Mini Moos – Zero points
Mini Moos, shelf stable half and half, are 0 points for one mini cup size serving. Be sure to watch portion size as these do have points if you use more than one.
Nut Pods 2 T – 0 points
nutpods Hazelnut Dairy-Free Creamer (4-pack) Unsweetened Whole30/Paleo/Keto/Vegannutpods Original 4-Pack, Unsweetened Dairy-Free Creamer, Whole30, Paleo, Keto, Non-GMO and Vegan, for Coffee, Tea and Cooking, Made from Almond and Coconut
Nut Pods is a half almond milk/half coconut milk non-dairy creamer, and they’ve recently released a creamer made with oat milk as well. Many people prefer it because it is all natural.
This creamer is Keto and Paleo friendly. Find Nut Pods on Amazon and in some local grocery stories.
This is my creamer of choice because it’s made without artificial sweeteners. Nutpods is slightly sweet and creamy, but not nearly as sweet as sugar-free creamers like Coffee Mate.
Extracts and Flavored Coffee – 0 points

Remember that using coffee that is already flavored does not add any additional points, and the same is true for using extract.
Only use a tiny bit of extract or it can turn your coffee bitter.
Best Milk, Alternative Milks, and Half and Half for WW
Here are some good milk options to add to your coffee.
Skim milk – 1 point for 1/4 cup
Unsweetened Almond milk – 0 points for 1/2 cup, 1 point for 1 cup
Unsweetened Cashew or oat milk – 2-3 point per cup depending on brand
Fat Free Half & half – 1 point for 2 T
Half and half – 1 point for 1 T
A hand-held frother is great for making your own cappuccinos and frappes. Use skim, almond, or coconut milk for the lowest points.
