Originating in Italy, a traditional cappuccino is a combination of espresso (a type of concentrated coffee), milk and in some cases, milk foam or whipped cream. The majority of calories in a cappuccino come from the milk. Calorie content varies based on the type of milk used. Other seasonings such as cinnamon and nutmeg are sometimes added for extra flavor, but don't contribute any additional calories.

A 12 oz. cappuccino with soy milk contains 64 calories. A 12 oz. cappuccino with nonfat milk contains 75 calories. A 12 oz. cappuccino with whole milk contains 120 calories.

Most of the carbohydrates in a cappuccino come from the carbohydrates in the milk. A 12 oz. cappuccino with soy milk contains 9 g of carbohydrate (7 g sugar). A 12 oz. cappuccino with nonfat milk contains 11 g of carbohydrate (9 g sugar). A 12 oz. cappuccino with whole milk contains 10 g of carbohydrate (9 g sugar).
