your friend is a moron. starbucs makes ice cream and sells them in grocery stores and that's it.
now there are tons of other ingredients in their drinks that could lead to weight gain. all the sugars, processed ingredients, and carbs in the syrups are terrible for you, but anything can be put into a healthy, balanced diet.
i assume you're talking about their frappuccinos because it wouldn't make any sense at all to assume there is ice cream in their hot coffee. frappuccinos are basically milkshakes minus the ice cream and instead made with loads of other sugary substances. so no, no ice cream, but yes, really bad for you
