A 22-gram serving of whipped cream has totals 70 calories, 7 grams of fat and 2 grams of sugar. A 17-gram serving of Mocha syrup runs about 25 calories and 4 grams of sugar. If you indulge in three cups of coffee a day, those numbers can add up. If you do need something to lighten your coffee, use fat-free milk and sprinkle your coffee with cinnamon.
