11 Best Keto Drinks Available at Starbucks to Order

You likely miss your delicious Starbucks drinks on the keto diet! Right?

This is going to be difficult. Because sticking to the keto diet and avoiding all high carb foods and drinks, whether available at Starbucks or any other coffee shop, is required to succeed on the keto diet.

And all those popular Bulletproof Keto Coffee recipes just aren’t satisfying you. Of course, Homemade just isn’t the same as Starbucks.

But don’t be concerned! Starbucks has a great selection of keto-friendly drinks! As a result, I believe that keto will become very simple with Starbucks.

This guide contains all of the information and tips you need to order the best Starbucks keto drinks guilt-free.

Starbucks Keto Pro-Tips

My favorite aspect of ordering from Starbucks is that the drinks are infinitely customizable.

This is also why you can make a lot of Starbucks drinks that are low in carbs and keto-friendly.

However, you should also know what to order and what not to order to keep your drinks as low in carbs as possible.

So, here are 6 helpful tips you should keep in mind when ordering keto drinks at Starbucks.

1. Skip The Whipped Cream

Yes, the whipped cream at Starbucks is high in fat, not only that but it also contains some sugar and carbs. As a result, you should not over-consume it.

2. Remember That Skinny Drinks Aren’t Keto-Friendly Drinks

Many people have the misconception that skinny drinks are low-carb keto drinks. At Starbucks, however, the only thing “skinny” means is that the drinks are made with sugar-free syrup and fat-free milk.

Not to mention that most Starbucks skinny drinks contain 20 grams or more of carbs per serving, which isn’t acceptable if you’re on the keto diet.

As a result, you should avoid ordering these drinks there.

3. Use Heavy Cream or Almond Milk

These are the lowest carbohydrate milk options at Starbucks.

Both options contain about 5 grams of carbohydrates per cup. However, this is significantly lower than all the other options on the available Starbucks menu.

4. Sugar-free doesn’t mean it’s carbohydrate-free

Many people believe that sugar-free syrups are also carb-free. Regrettably, they are not.

The syrup flavors at Starbucks are actually made with a very small amount of maltodextrin, which is another word for a type of sugar that isn’t keto-friendly.

Keep in mind that each pump of Starbucks’ sugar-free syrup contains about 1 gram of carbohydrates.

As a result, you will need to be very specific about how much syrup you want to add to your drink.

Don’t worry about adding sugar-free syrup to Starbucks keto drinks.

Because it won’t be enough to get you out of ketosis, especially if you use the amounts I recommend in the drinks below!

5. Skip The Sweetener Packets Starbucks Has

Starbucks offers a variety of packaged sweeteners in its stores.

However, none of these packages is particularly good for people on the keto diet.

Stevia In The Raw packets is mostly a very small portion of stevia and dextrose.

And the Splenda packets are mostly a teeny-tiny bit of sucralose and dextrose.

This means that these packages contain 1 gram of carbohydrates. In addition, the mentioned types of sugar are not allowed on the keto diet.

However, if you’re only using one or two bundles, that’s fine; you’re still safe.

But, if you want to add 4,5 or even 6-packs of sweetener to your Starbucks keto drinks, I recommend taking your own keto-friendly sweetener.

6. Bring Your Own Sweetener

I simply keep a set of these Whole Earth packs in my car. I advise you to always do the same.

So, whenever I need it (since it has 0 net carbs), I can add it to my keto drinks from Starbucks.

And, yes, the back of the packet lists it as 1 carb, but this is only because the FDA requires companies to list the nutritional information of sugar alcohols on packages.

It is, without a doubt, perplexing. However, keep in mind that a packet of Whole Earth’s stevia, monk fruit, erythritol blend contains 0 REAL CARBS.

However, the same cannot be said for Stevia In The Raw, Splenda, or Sweet’s Low.

The 11 Best Keto Drinks Available at Starbucks

1. Keto Pink Drink

Let’s start the Starbucks keto drinks menu with the keto pink drink.

This Starbucks keto drink has recently gained popularity due to its delicious flavor and vibrant pink color.

Order a venti iced sugar-free pink fruit tea, such as guava or passion tango, with no classic syrup. Then add 1 ounce of heavy cream and one or two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.

2. Caffè Misto

Caffè Misto is one of the most delicious keto coffee drinks available at Starbucks.

This coffee drink is made using equal parts coffee and steamed milk, which makes it a great option for people on a keto diet.

To reduce the number of calories and carbs in your cup, simply switch steamed dairy milk to almond milk …

Instead of milk, you can also use a mixture of heavy cream and water, which increases the calorie and fat content while keeping your carb intake under control.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of *Caffè Misto* with 8 ounces of *Almond milk* contains:

Calories: 37

Fat: 2.6 grams

Protein: 1.5 grams

Carbs: 1.5 grams

Carbs: 3.3 grams

Fiber: 0 grams

Order Caffè Misto with Almond Milk, it’s really delicious, or an equal mix of heavy cream and water.

3. Fresh Brewed Coffee

Did you know something? Starbucks freshly brewed coffees are by default zero-carb, sugar-free drinks (except for Caffe Misto), which makes them ideal for keto dieters.

To keep your carb count low, avoid adding things like milk, sugar, syrups, or coffee creamer.

To increase the fat content without adding carbs, add a splash of heavy cream or a bit of butter, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, or coconut oil.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of *Brewed Coffee* contains:

Calories: 5

Fat: 0 grams

Protein: 1 gram

Carbs: 0 grams

Fiber: 0 grams

To get your morning dose of caffeine, order a Blonde Roast, Dark Roast Coffee, or Pike Place Roast.

All These come in standard Starbucks serving sizes (short, tall, grande, and venti).

If you’re not a fan of caffeine, there’s also a decaf (Pike Place Roast) option.

4. Skinny Mocha

The term “skinny” may appear in front of lower-calorie drinks on the Starbucks menu, but this does not imply that they are inherently low-carb So, if you’re on the keto diet, keep that in mind.

For example, a grande Skinny Mocha has 20g net carbohydrates.

Here are some changes you can make when ordering this drink to reduce the carb content: Make it tall, use only 2 pumps of sugar-free skinny mocha syrup and ask the barista to use almond milk or a 50/50 mix of heavy cream and hot water.

It’s worth noting that adding 4 ounces of heavy cream raises the calorie count to 470 and the fat content to 45 grams.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) of *Skinny Mocha* contains:

Calories: 117

Fat: 4 grams

Protein: 7.5 grams

Carbs: 13.5 grams

Fiber: 4 grams

This version is much healthier, and I highly recommend trying it because it is very tasty.

Also, it’s definitely one of the best low-carb Starbucks coffee drinks ever, especially if you’re on a keto diet and want to control your carb intake.

5. Low carb London Fog

An iced London Fog Tea Latte is usually made using Earl Grey tea, milk, and 4 pumps of vanilla syrup.

Order an iced London Fog Tea Latte with 1 ounce of heavy cream and sugar-free syrup.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of *Low Carb London Mist* contains:

Calories: 101

Fat: 11 grams

Protein: 1 gram

Carbs: 1 gram

Fiber: 0 grams

6. Unsweetened tea, hot or iced (with 0g net carbs)

Among the great and simple Starbucks keto drinks that are available is hot or iced tea.

If you’re ordering iced or hot tea, be sure to let the barista know you want it unsweetened;

because the default recipes include classic syrup, otherwise known as liquid sugar.

If you prefer your tea with milk, try a splash of heavy cream or a steamed heavy cream topper, which is higher in fat and lower in carbohydrates than regular milk.

7. Skinny macchiato, hot or iced

A macchiato is okay, too. just make sure to use unsweetened almond milk instead of regular milk when ordering this drink.

If you’re not trying to turn your Starbucks visit into a cheat day, skip the caramel drizzle as well.

Macchiato made with a triple shot of espresso and unsweetened almond milk:

Per serving: 30 cal, 1.1 g fat (0 g sat), 3.6 g carbohydrates, 0 g sugar, 0 g fiber, 71 mg sodium, 2.6 g protein

8. Keto White Drink

The Keto White Drink is a Starbucks secret menu drink. Sugar-free vanilla syrup, Peach Citrus White Tea, and heavy cream are used to make it.

To order a white keto drink, just order the white peach tea, add heavy cream & 1-2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.

You should know that white tea with peach and citrus does not contain carbohydrates, heavy whipping cream will provide all the macros.

So the macros for this drink are determined by the volume you choose.

9. Keto Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Cinnamon Dolce Latte is one of the most popular drinks at Starbucks, especially in the winter. If you have tried it before, you will surely know why.

This Starbucks keto drink is very tasty, but the regular version is rich in carbohydrates and sugar. But don’t worry, you can make it keto-friendly while still enjoying the delicious flavor of cinnamon!

To do this, order a grande Cinnamon Dolce Latte and make sure to ask for NO cinnamon dolce sprinkles and NO whipped cream.

Also, substitute the 2% milk with heavy cream or almond milk.

Finally, substitute the cinnamon dolce syrup for 3-4 pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup and enjoy.

10. Iced Starbucks Blonde Cold Foam Cappuccino

Because the Iced foam on top of the drink attracted my interest. I decided to include it as one of the delicious keto drinks available at Starbucks.

Order a Starbucks Iced Blond Cold Foam Cappuccino with whole milk and without the traditional sweetener.

It’s important to note that the Iced Starbucks Blonde Cold Foam Cappuccino has more carbohydrates than the keto drinks mentioned in this guide.

But that’s fine, it could easily fit into the keto diet.

The macros for a Tall Iced Starbucks Blonde Cold Foam Cappuccino are 100kcals, 5g fat, 9g carbs, and 5g protein, according to the Starbucks website.

11. Iced Coffee with Heavy Whipping Cream (optional)

Knowing that I mentioned earlier that whipping cream should not be consumed in excess.

But what makes this option stand out is that it’s super simple (no syrup, no sweetener) and will provide you with all of your ketogenic macros.

I’m referring to an iced tall coffee with heavy whipped cream. Wow, this coffee drink is one of the most popular drinks at Starbucks and is a fine option for the keto diet.

This keto coffee is bitter, compared to Iced Starbucks Blonde Cold Foam Cappuccino.

I never noticed it before, but drinking different coffees back to back allows you to really tell the difference between the two. I did bring some liquid stevia extract with me, which I added to the coffee after my first taste test.

Knowing that I am currently trying to wean myself off artificial sweeteners. It is difficult, though.

I hope this guide is useful the next time you visit Starbucks or another coffee shop! I rarely go a day without having one of these beverages. So, tell me about your favorite keto drinks from Starbucks. In the comments section below.
