Keto At Starbucks - 10 Keto Starbucks Drinks to Order

With this Keto Starbuck Guide, you’ll learn how to customize your keto coffee to make it keto-friendly.

It’s best to make some drinks such as keto Pumpkin Spice Latte or my favorite Keto Caramel Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino at home to reduce the carbs. Also, you can’t be on a keto diet without having a cup of the most popular keto coffee drink, Bulletproof Coffee.

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks, and If you know what you’re doing, ordering keto at Starbucks can be so easy! Coffee can easily be turned from a zero carb drink into a dessert by adding tons of milk, sugar, syrups, and sweetened creamers.

Many Drinks Contain Sugar By Default

Many Starbucks drinks come with simple sugar syrup, which can add anywhere from 5 to 30 grams of net carbs, depending on the size. Make sure you ask if there’s sweetener (Starbucks calls it “Classic”), or say “no Classic” when you order.

Say No to Sweetened Whipped Cream

In some places, Starbucks whipped cream is made with sugar or vanilla syrup. Make sure to ask your barista all about the brands they’re using to make the coffee. Some heavy creams contain way too many carbs to be considered keto-friendly.

Sugar-Free Syrups Should Be Avoided

Just because the syrup is sugar-free doesn’t mean it’s also carb-free. Each sugar-free syrup pump has around one net carb. Here are a few flavor choices that usually come with a sugar-free option:

  • Caramel
  • Vanilla
  • Hazelnut
  • Mocha
  • Cinnamon
  • Peppermint

Coffee with Almond Milk

When you order a coffee at Starbucks, keep in mind that 1 cup of almond milk contains 5g net carbs and 60 calories. Probably a coffee drink won’t have that much almond milk, but be sure to ask for unsweetened almond milk. 

When visiting a Starbucks cafe, you can carry with you a liquid stevia bottle and sweetened your drinks to taste. This way 

What to Avoid At When Ordering Low Carb at Starbucks

  • Steamed milk is about 10g net carbs per serving.
  • Skinny Drinks – this doesn’t mean that a drink is keto but only lower in carbs.
  • Sugar – Always specify that you want a sugar-free drink. 

Best Starbucks Keto Drinks and Orders

The best part about Starbucks, though, is that you can personalize your order! Here are the best drinks to order keto at Starbucks

  • Fresh Brewed Coffee – Starbucks’ hot, black coffee contains no carbohydrates or sugars, which is excellent news for keto dieters.
  • Shots of Espresso – This short shot of rich coffee contains about 1g of net carbs and 5 calories per shot of espresso at Starbucks.
  • Americano – An Americano is made from espresso shots topped with hot water. But if you want to power this baby up, add some heavy cream and Stevia. 
  • Skinny Macchiato (hot or iced) – A macchiato is also acceptable. Use unsweetened almond milk instead of ordinary milk to make it. If you’re not trying to make your Starbucks visit into a cheat day, skip the caramel drizzle as well.
  • Low Carb Mocha – Order a short Mocha with skinny sugar-free mocha sauce and replace milk with half heavy cream and half water. This delicious drink has only 1g net carbs and 55 calories.
  • Flat White – Yes, it’s possible to enjoy this drink too, even if you are on a keto diet. All you have to do is to replace the usual steamed milk of a flat white with half heavy cream and half hot water, and you’ve got a lower-carb version of this Starbucks classic. 
  • Iced-Coffee – While a Starbucks iced coffee is usually sweetened, you can reduce your carb count by asking for it unsweetened with no syrup. This makes your drink 0g net carbs and only 5 calories.
  • Pink Drink – Don’t worry. Even if you are a fan of this drink, you can enjoy it on your keto diet. So go ahead and order the tall Pink Drink, but ask for two shots of heavy cream and 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup. This drink has 206 calories and only 4g net carbs. 
  • Iced Tea – Starbucks carries various tea options such as black, green, white, passion, or Peach Tranquility Herbal Tea; any of these tea options are 100 % keto-friendly, except the matcha. You can add one or two packets of Stevia mixed into the tea for extra sweetness. Ask for unsweetened tea. 
  • Low Carb London Fog – Order a short Earl Gray tea made from two tea bags, add two shots of steamed heavy cream and one pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup. This drink has only 3g net carbs and 206 calories.

Starbucks Keto Food

The Starbucks keto menu includes more than delicious coffee drinks. Also, have a look at the keto food alternatives!

  • Cheddar Moon Cheese – These crunchy cheddar puffs are delicious, low in calories, and loaded with flavor, making them a great addition to your keto routine.
  • Kale Chips
  • Meat and Cheese Plate – This flavorful, salty meat and cheese platter is an excellent accompaniment to your keto Starbucks drink, mainly because it has no net carbs.
  • Avocado Spread
