Pretty much any time Starbucks drops a new drink, the Internet collectively freaks out. The Unicorn Frappuccino, PSL, and Pink Drink all led the pack, and last week, a secret menu ‘Keto White Drink’ got everyone’s attention. The drink — made with unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea, heavy cream, and sugar-free vanilla syrup — seemed to be keto friendly … but we still heard some rumblings over whether it really measured up.

Bulletproof, the company known for its full-fat, buttery coffee recipes, raised questions over whether the drink qualifies as keto-friendly. They noted that Starbucks’ sugar-free syrup contains sucralose, a sugar substitute you probably know as Splenda. Some research shows that these substitutes can raise blood sugar levels by altering your gut bacteria, which would not support ketosis (the diet cuts back on carbs and sugar). We reached out to Jaclyn London, Good Housekeeping Institute’s nutrition director and a registered dietician, to clear things up.

“The idea that sucralose impacts blood sugar in any substantial way is completely false. Both sucralose and stevia are considered non-nutritive sweeteners, meaning that they do not contain calories from carbohydrates and therefore won’t impact glycemic response when consumed,” Jaclyn said.

The research referred to is based on animal testing, she explained, and applies to amounts higher than what most people would actually consume. However, that’s not to say that the drink is completely in the clear — nor is the diet (Jillian Michaels isn’t sold on it either).

“Ultimately, I’d be more concerned about the long-term effects of a keto diet on your gut microbiome than I’d be about the sucralose of this one Starbucks drink, specifically,” she points out. “Bottom line: This sounds delicious, but drink it for its flavor — not for its perceived health or weight-loss promoting ‘benefits’.”

If you’re reading this, you are most likely two things: a human being and slightly caffeine-addicted. A ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you have to stick to a no carb black coffee (although that’s Matt’s favorite).

However, you’ll want to think twice before chugging a flat white or your sweet frappuccino.

Here, we tackle the secret sugar sources, sneaky “skinny” substitutions, and swaps that will make your keto-friendly Starbucks drink a success.

The HUGE list of keto friendly foods.

Contents

Need to Know Before You Go

Planning to just strut into your local Starbucks and hope for the best? We like your confidence, but think again! Keto dieters need to know a few things before heading out to place their keto coffee orders. Otherwise, anyone could blow this low carb diet in just a few sips!

Here’s the scoop — please note that we are basing all of our information on a 16 oz. Grande, not a Venti.

Most Drinks Come With Sugar

Sugar: it’s everywhere! No, seriously, you’ve probably noticed since starting the keto diet that there’s sweetener in everything. Most drinks on the Starbucks menu come with sugar. One obvious place you’ll find it is the classic syrup.

This classic syrup automatically comes in iced coffee and iced tea, which you’d probably assume are unsweetened. Nope, iced coffee has 20 grams of sugar! So, even if you’re ordering a simple drink, know that you’ll need to specify to keep it sugar-free.

Say No Whipped Cream

While whipped cream is delicious and there are plenty of keto options available, they are not available for Starbucks drinks. Whipped cream is full of fat, but it’s also full of sugar and carbs!

Repeat after me: just say no whipped cream for a low carb Starbucks treat. (Same goes for the caramel drizzle).

Avoid a Lot of Steamed Milk

Ok, so you’ve said no to whipped cream and classic syrup. Great work, you keto Starbucks warrior!

But you’ll still want to avoid milk. That means a “skinny mocha” still has 20g of net carbs if you make it with steamed milk and sugar-free syrup (which we’ll get to next). Here’s how many net carbs are in one cup of each type of milk:

  • Nonfat milk — 12 grams of carbs
  • Two percent milk — 13 grams of carbs
  • Whole milk — 12 grams of carbs
  • Half and half — 10.4 grams of carbs (by the way, breve means steamed half and half)
  • Heavy whipping cream — 6.6 grams of carbs
  • Unsweetened almond milk — 1 gram of carbs

These carb numbers from milk’s sugar content, are why we recommend going with almond milk, or, at most half heavy cream and half water, so you get a good fat to carb ratio. Just ask for a light pour; your Starbucks barista might tend to go a little crazy with portions sometimes.

Note: we don’t recommend coconut milk unless you have an allergy to dairy.

Skinny Does Not Mean Low-Carb

While it would be a dream to walk in and just order whatever “skinny” drink you wanted, staying in ketosis at Starbucks just isn’t that simple. The amount of steamed milk and all those pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup (or your personal fave flavor) means most skinny drinks still have around 19g of carbs.

Don’t assume that just because a drink is skinny, it’s keto-friendly or low carb.

Sugar Free Syrups Have Carbs

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but just because it’s sugar-free syrup doesn’t mean it’s carb-free too. Each pump contains 1 net carb, due to artificial sweeteners like sucralose.

So before you go bananas on syrups, specify how many pumps you want.The typical grande gets four syrup pumps, so you’ll probably want to ask for one or two instead of leaving it up to your barista.

Starbucks Sugar Free Syrups — 1g Net Carbs per Pump

  • Sugar-free vanilla
  • Sugar-free hazelnut
  • Sugar-free cinnamon dolce
  • Sugar-free caramel
  • Sugar-free peppermint (seasonally available)
  • Skinny mocha sauce

Keto Starbucks Coffee Drinks

Ok, now that you know the basics, here’s how to order keto Starbucks drinks like a pro.

2 Pump Sugar Free Iced Coffee — 3g Net Carbs

Nothing beats that mid-afternoon slump for us like a nice keto Starbucks iced coffee. Order it like this:

  • Grande iced coffee, with no classic syrup. (A cold brew would work too).
  • Two pumps of whatever sugar free syrup is your favorite.
  • If you prefer it unflavored, here’s a great liquid Stevia you can carry with you and add in for sweetness.

Keto Cinnamon Dolce Latte — 5.3g Net Carbs

This is one of the classic coffee drinks, and here we’ve given it a ketogenic twist. This has all of the yum and none of the crazy sugars or carbs:

  • Order an Americano, but with only ¾ water instead of all the way full.
  • Ask for the last ¼ to be filled with a large splash of heavy cream, steamed. This gives you the creamy latte feel.
  • Finally, ask for two pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup.

Low Carb Mocha — 5.3g Net Carbs

Everyone knows that the chocolatey goodness of mocha can’t be ignored. Since a “skinny mocha” is still high in carbs and sugar, here’s what to order to keep it keto-friendly:

  • Order an Americano with ¾ water and ¼ heavy cream (your new go-to keto latte or cappuccino base).
  • Ask for no whipped cream and no vanilla syrup — yep, they put both mocha sauce and vanilla syrup in a mocha.
  • Ask for 2 pumps of skinny mocha sauce, maybe add one pump of sugar-free peppermint if you want a holiday treat — just add 1g net carbs.

Keto Starbucks Tea Drinks

Can’t stand the idea of giving up your favorite hot tea or refresher? Don’t worry, there are plenty of keto drinks for tea-lovers.

Pink Drink — 4.5g Net Carbs

If you know about it, you probably love the famous Pink Drink, which is why it’s on our keto Starbucks roundup. Here’s how to get a keto Pink Drink. Your taste buds say thank you.

  • Ask for a grande Passion Tango, iced. Make sure to say no classic syrup!
  • Ask for 2 shots (not a splash) of heavy whipping cream.
  • Ask for 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla.
  • Bonus: you can throw in some of our favorite MCT oil for extra keto goodness. (Check out our other recommended supplements here).

2 Pump Sugar Free London Fog — 5.3g Net Carbs

Who doesn’t love the taste of Earl Grey tea and the creaminess of a London Fog? No one. Here’s how to get this fall favorite:

  • Ask for an Earl grey tea bag (or two, if you’re feeling wild).
  • You’ll also want to do ¾ hot water and ¼ heavy whipping cream, just like we recommended for a keto latte.
  • Finally, ask to swap the regular vanilla syrup for two pumps of sugar-free vanilla.

Chai Tea Latte — 3.7g Net Carbs

Most tea lovers know the spicy goodness of a Chai Tea latte. However, thanks to the sugar syrups and carb-heavy milk, a typical Chai tea latte runs around 60g of carbs.

Here’s the keto swap, which comes out to under 4g net carbs:

  • Be sure to ask for the tea bag, not Chai tea syrup. This step is crucial to cut down on carbs for this drink. (It’s also helpful for a green tea latte.)
  • You’ll also want to get two ounces of heavy whipping cream.
  • Finally, two pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup brings out the flavor of the tea.
  • Variations: make it a “dirty chai” if desired by adding a shot of espresso, or ask for two tea bags for extra spice.

Low Carb Starbucks Frappuccino — 5.5g Net Carbs

The trick here is avoiding the liquid Frappuccino base, which is basically just a giant splash of gloopy sugar. However, for a few more carbs than these other drinks, you can still hit the spot without paying the price of 70-something grams of carbs! Here’s our version:

  • Ask for an iced coffee, no classic syrup, with extra ice.
  • Next, ask for three (yes, we’re getting crazy) shots of your sugar-free syrup of choice.
  • Now, you’ll need three shots of heavy cream.
  • You’ll need to get the baristas to blend it, frappuccino style. It’s worth saying again here that you don’t want any frappe base or syrups.
  • Just say no to any drizzles, whipped cream, or other temptations. You can do it!

Starbucks Keto Food

While most food at Starbucks is off-limits, like pastries or cake pops, there are a few things you can munch on in a pinch. (If you can wait until you get home, try our pimento cheese or bacon egg cups for keto-friendly treats). If you can’t, here are a few options for a keto Starbucks snack.

Try an Eggs & Cheese Protein box, but stick to the eggs and cheese only. You could also try the Cheese & Fruit Protein Box and only eat the cheese. As you can see, this isn’t the easiest place to eat on the ketogenic diet.

Are the Starbucks Egg Bites Keto Friendly?

Somewhat. The Bacon and Gruyere have 2g of sugar, 20g of fat, and 9g of carbs. The Egg White and Red Pepper bites or Ham, Cheddar & Peppers are slightly higher in carbs, but still acceptable for some people. While this isn’t ideal, if you are intentional in the rest of your meals, this won’t automatically bust your keto diet.

However, steer far away from the Chicken Chorizo Tortilla variety. These contain tortilla strips! Honestly, it may just be safer to pack one of our favorite protein bars.

In Summary

  • While there are many available options for a keto Starbucks treat, it’s important to be aware of the hidden sources of sugar and carbs.
  • Be sure to ask for no classic syrup, avoid milk, say no to whipped cream, and keep sugar-free syrup to two or three pumps.
  • Snacks at Starbucks are few and far between, so stick to cheeses or the Bacon and Gruyere Egg Bites. Eating at home may be the better option here.
  • Thankfully, we’ve still found lots of ways to get our coffee or tea fix while on a keto diet. Keto Starbucks ordering takes thought, but is easy once you get the hang of it!
  • With these tools, and a good look at Starbucks’ nutritional information, you can start customizing your own Starbucks treats, keto-style.

Learning how to order low carb drinks snacks at Starbucks is a little more complicated than you think. This easy guide will break it down for you and soon, you will be ordering keto friendly drinks and food at Starbucks–just like a pro.

What would we do without Starbucks?! It’s often our first stop before we head to work or school, it functions as a temporary office for many of us, a hangout with friends or solitary place to think.

Almost anywhere in the world, that classic green apron grants a warm welcome; it’s coffee’s familiar face. And lucky for us living a keto lifestyle, Starbucks listens to the needs of its customers and constantly evolves to meet them.

Last year I was asked by Health Magazine about my favorite keto choices at Starbucks, and the article received such great feedback that I thought I would expand it.

Because there are literally hundreds of combinations for ordering fancy coffee and tea drinks I’ve broken it down for you into Keto-friendly, low carb ingredients. If you stick with a combination of these ingredients you can’t go wrong. Don’t want to read all this? Just get the free printable cheat sheet I made HERE.

What Low Carb Drinks are at Starbucks?

There are a lot of Low Carb drink options at Starbucks if you know how to order. Like I said, there are literally hundreds if you order a custom drink. TO make it simple, I’ve broken everything down by step below, or you can download my easy-to-read printable cheat sheet to take with you! Get it HERE!

Low Carb Drink Bases At Starbucks (R)

First, pick your base. Will you want something hot today? Or does it feel like more of an iced coffee to iced tea sort of day to you?

Once you’ve picked hot or cold, then decide what your base will be. Here are some naturally low carb choices.

  • Fresh Brewed Coffee (Pike Place, Blonde Roast, Dark Roast, etc.)
  • Cold Brew Coffee
  • Espresso
  • Unsweetened Tea (Chai, Green, Black or White, Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Passion Tango).
  • NO tea infusions! Steer clear of Starbucks’ tea infusions or their shaken iced teas, many of which have added sugar or are mixed with juices (and as a result, contain a ton of carbs).

Keto Friendly Add-Ins At Starbucks

  • Heavy Cream*
  • Half-and-Half*
  • Almond Milk
  • The cream that Starbucks has out at the self-serve bar is not heavy cream and will have more carbs so either ask the barista to add heavy cream or ask them to give you heavy cream to add in yourself.
  • There are pros and cons with using heavy cream versus half and half that you should be aware of. Heavy cream has more fat and less carbs per serving, but the calories in heavy cream can really add up.
  • If you have to watch your calorie count like I do, I would recommend using half-and-half sparingly. If you’re not watching your calorie count, then enjoy the heavy cream.
  • One cup of Starbucks’ almond milk contains about 60 calories, 4 grams fat, 110 mg sodium, 5 grams carbohydrate, 1 gram fiber, 3 grams sugar, and 2 grams of protein.
  • In comparison, a cup of coconut milk at Starbucks has 8.5 grams of sugar.
  • The soy milk, omg, just stay away from it. It’s got 13.5 grams of sugar per cup!
  • So yeah, your choices are heavy cream, half and half, and almond milk.

Sugar-Free Syrups & Sweeteners At Starbucks

I’m not crazy about the low carb sweetener options at Starbucks. Most use Stevia in the Raw which includes maltodextrin and contains carbs. I usually bring my own sweetener with me to use when I’m out and about.

Sugar-Free Syrups. Selection will vary by store, but all stores carry sugar-free syrups and this is where the magic happens if you have a sweet tooth.

  • Sugar Free Vanilla
  • SF Caramel
  • SF Cinnamon Dolce
  • Sugar Free Hazelnut
  • SF Peppermint (seasonal)
  • SF Mocha
  • Stevia
  • Truvia

Mix and Match Low Carb Starbucks Drinks

So for example, using this method you might make:

  • A Hot Brewed Coffee with Almond Milk with Stevia

Or if you are looking for cold Starbucks drinks that are keto:

  • Iced Espresso with Heavy Cream with a Pump of Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup

Start With These Low Carb Starbucks Drinks

If you don’t have a favorite Starbucks drink yet or want some new drink inspiration you can order one of these below:

  • Low-carb Flat White (Flat white, no steamed milk, half-heavy whipping cream, half water steamed)
  • Skinny Mocha (Sugar free mocha sauce, half-heavy whipping cream, half water instead of milk, no whipped cream)
  • Steamer (I like a grande almond milk unsweetened, extra hot, with two shots of sugar-free cinnamon dolce
  • Grande Expresso Coffee over ice with some heavy whipping cream and two pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup.
  • Americano with Heavy Cream (this is good hot or cold)
  • Keto White Drink (unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea, heavy cream, sugar free vanilla syrup)
  • Faux Frapp (Cold Brew Coffee with heavy cream, and 2 pumps of both SF vanilla and SF cinnamon dolce syrup. Ask them to blend it Frapp style with no base)
  • Iced Cinnamon Refresher (Cold Brew or unsweetened iced coffee with heavy cream, light ice, no water, and 2-3 pumps of SF cinnamon dolce and SF vanilla syrup)
  • Sugar Free Purple Drink (passion iced tea, soymilk, SF vanilla syrup, blackberries)
  • Sugar Free Pink Drink (passion iced tea, no classic, with 2 shots of heavy whipping cream, and 4 pumps of sugarfree vanilla)
  • Brewed Oprah Chai Tea Bag (Chai tea bag, 2 shots heavy cream, 2 pumps SF Cinnamon Dolce, stevia)

You’ll notice that the list above contains both hard working caffeine filled coffee and espresso, as well as some sweet treat frozen options. Starbucks is a great place to get a keto sweet fix if you need one. Snag the printable Low Carb Starbucks drink guide cheat sheet HERE!

Low Carb Food at Starbucks:

Sadly, the food at Starbucks is very disappointing for keto.

  • The Protein Boxes come loaded with anywhere from 34 to a whopping 80 grams of carbs! Of course, you can get Cheese & Nut tray and get rid of the fruit and crackers.
  • The Sous Vide Egg Bites, which at face value would seem low in carbs, pack in 9-13 grams of carbs because they contain a rice starch which helps them hold their shape and texture.
  • If you must find something to eat at Starbucks, I recommend the Avocado Dip, which is just a cup of guacamole, and I will often just eat it with a spoon.
  • Some stores now offer a salami and cheese tray, which is great. I hope that Starbucks will expand its Keto food offering.

    Keto Starbucks

    What is keto at Starbucks?

    Drip coffees and teas are the easiest, as are Americanos. Drinks with coconut milk and almond milk are also relatively low, although they do have some sugar.

    Is Starbucks Keto Friendly?

    Not everything at Starbucks is keto-friendly. In fact, most things at Starbucks are NOT keto-friendly so be sure to educate yourself before you walk in. I would even suggest making your own toast with my Keto Bread before you’re tempted by their sweet treats behind the counter.

    Is a latte Keto?

    Only if it’s made with sugar-free syrup, heavy cream, and almond or coconut milk.

    What are some low carb snacks at Starbucks?

    The protein boxes minus the cheese and fruit, the egg bites, the avocado dip, and the meat and salami trays are the best bets.

    Keto Black Tea Latte (Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

    A simple keto black tea latte recipe, which can either be made into a bulletproof-style drink by adding butter and MCT oil, or you can simply add sweetener and coconut milk or heavy whipping cream for a creamy and rich drink.
    My keto hot chocolate recipe seems to have been a real hit, so I thought I should also post one of my other favorite morning recipes…my beloved keto black tea latte. Honestly, I could probably drink hot chocolate once a day and be a happy camper.

    However, I do tend to get tired of drinking the same thing day in and day out, so I like to change things up once in awhile. When I’m not in the mood to drink hot chocolate, I will make this either delicious black tea latte, or a scrumptious chai tea latte.

    Black tea is my go-to for mornings where I feel a bit more sluggish than usual. Since I like my tea strong, I usually brew it with two tea bags, giving me a nice boost of caffeine.

    If you’re not someone who wants loads of caffeine, you can certainly cut back to one tea bag and just let it steep longer. Or, you could use one decaf and one regular tea bag, or two decaf. Totally up to you!
    This is one of those recipes where whatever your preference is, you can customize to fit that. Here are some suggestions:

    • Like your tea sweet? Add in a packet or two of stevia or however much sweetener you like.
    • Looking to get in your dose of healthy fats in the morning? Add in as much heavy cream or coconut milk as you need to keep you satiated.
    • Into the Bulletproof coffee craze but want something other than coffee? Add in your favorite MCT or brain octane oil and a tablespoon or two of butter and blend.
    • Looking for a fun and exciting new flavor? Add in a splash of your favorite sugar-free syrup or a bit of flavoring extract.

    See? So many different ways to enjoy it!
    If you give this keto black tea latte a try, please let me know what you think in the comments below. Also be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest so you don’t miss a recipe!

    You’ve worked so hard to keep the rest of your diet strictly keto—why should your daily coffee intake be any different? Before you go ahead and despair that your Starbucks habit needs to be kicked to the curb with the rest of your carb-y favs, know that there are ways to order certain Starbucks drinks that’ll make them keto-friendly too. Below are some of the best examples…as well as how exactly to order them to ensure full keto quality.

    Fresh brewed coffee

    You’d think most freshly brewed coffees would be keto-friendly, but that’s not the case. Luckily, though, Starbucks’ is.

    How to order: “Pike Place Roast.” Other no-carb brews are the blonde roast, their featured dark roast, and more.

    Skinny mocha

    According to Mr. Skinnypants, a regular Starbucks mocha nets about 20 grams of carbs, which makes sense, as it’s made with milk, whipped cream, and mocha sauce. You can make a few swaps to make it “skinny,” though.

    How to order: Ask for “skinny sugar-free mocha sauce.” Replacing the the milk with heavy whipping cream and water helps, too.

    Low-carb London fog

    For those unfamiliar with a London fog, it’s usually just a (delicious, carb-filled) combo of Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, and vanilla syrup. Swap the latter two things for whipping cream and sugar-free syrup and you’re good.

    How to order: Don’t even mention a London fog! Ask for Earl Grey tea, a shot of heavy whipping cream, and, of course, a pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup.

    Low-carb caramel macchiato

    This forever fav is not exactly healthy on a regular day, nor is it healthy if you just swap out a few of its ingredients—it’s largely made of milk, espresso, vanilla syrup, and caramel sauce. A barista recently suggested on Reddit you forgo the hot version of the drink (and it’s extra milk carbs) altogether and go straight for a tall or grande iced drink.

    How to order: “Skinny caramel macchiato with almond milk and no caramel drizzle.”

    Iced chai tea latte

    The same barista suggested a chai tea latte is one of the few Starbucks drinks that’s not compromised by making a few keto swaps. Hip2Keto notes you can’t order this version online though—in-person is the best way to do it to be sure it comes to you correctly.

    How to order: You’ve got a few options here. One is to ask for “chai tea with a splash of heavy cream and X pumps of sugar-free vanilla,” or an “iced lightly sweet chai latte, no liquid cane, breve.”

    Low-carb flat white

    This one’s an easy fix. Instead of the usual steamed whole milk, swap in the same heavy whipping cream and water combo.

    How to order: “Flat white, no steamed milk, half-heavy whipping cream, half water steamed.”

    Keto white drink

    INSTAGRAM / @CARBLESS.COCO

    There’s no real original drink to model this hotly contested keto drink after, nor can you really ask your barista for a “keto white drink,” so…

    How to order: “Unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea with a splash of heavy cream, 2-4 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, no water, and light ice.”

    Low-carb pink drink

    Instagram

    Again, this uber-popular, Instagrammable drink isn’t the hardest thing to make keto-friendly. The end result will obviously be less sweet, but it’ll be no less pink, which is the most important thing, no?

    How to order: “Passion tango tea, sugar-free syrup, and heavy (or light) creamer.”

    Iced pineapple tea

    Just like the regular brewed coffee, Starbucks iced tea is generally pretty keto-safe, too! You’ll of course have to order any version of it “unsweetened,” but if you do want some flavoring, you’ve got options.

    How to order: “Iced green, black, or white tea, with a pineapple fusion, unsweetened.”

    Low-carb Americano

    The Americano is blessedly already pretty low-carb to begin with, which makes this yet another easy keto fix.

    How to order: “Americano with heavy cream.”

    Caffe Misto

    Essentially a cafè au lait, the caffe misto lends itself to keto-dom. Swap that milk out for heavy cream and you’re golden.

    How to order: “Caffe misto, 50/50 heavy cream and hot water.”

    Iced Coffee

    A classic. Who doesn’t love a blank canvas of coffee?

    How to order: “Iced coffee with heavy whipping cream.”

    There’s a Starbucks Keto White Drink on the secret menu and it tastes like a diet peach cobbler

    • There’s a Starbucks secret menu drink called the Keto White Drink.
    • It’s made with heavy cream, sugar-free vanilla syrup, and Peach Citrus White Tea.
    • It tastes like liquid peach cobbler, according to the reviewer.
    • There is sucralose in the drink, so you may want to bring your own sweetener.

    Before you subject your tastebuds to the weird and wonderful new foods and drinks going viral on Instagram, check out Brit + Co’s reviews on First Bite, our new series where we tell you if they are truly snack-tastic or totally terrible.

    We’ll be honest: When we heard Starbucks Keto White Drink was a thing, we were a little wary. We still had a bad taste in our mouths from Starbucks Keto Pink Drink and were unsure that we could put our taste buds through that torture again. But to our surprise, Starbucks Keto White Drink (~$4), an invention of Keto Dieters ‘gramming their creations and tagging them #KetoStarbucks, is actually quite good.

    If you want to order it, ask your barista for:

    • unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea
    • a splash of heavy cream
    • 2-4 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup
    • no water
    • light ice

    The taste is creamy, peachy, and refreshing. Some people on Instagram are calling it “liquid peach cobbler” and have compared it to Disney’s Peach Milk Tea at Epcot. We think it tastes more like peaches and cream or Trolli Peachie O’s Gummy Candies. We even tried it side-by-side with the blended version (like a Frappuccino). It tastes the same on the rocks or blended (with the exception of milkshake-like texture, obviously).

    Here’s the only downside. The sugar-free vanilla syrup doesn’t have sugar, but it does have sucralose. Some hard-core dieters are wary of all the chemicals in certain sugar-free sweeteners like sucralose, and advise going for erythritol, monk fruit, Swerve, stevia, and xylitol instead. So, BYOS (bring your own sweetener) OR order this drink with stevia, something Starbucks does have. FYI, the drink may taste slightly different if you do, as you’ll be missing the vanilla element. That, or just consume in moderation!

    Starbucks’ Keto White Drink is delicious, and we can’t believe there’s no sugar in it. If real peaches and cream aren’t on the cards, this treat is worth a try.

    Visit INSIDER’s homepage for more.

    For Starbucks fans that are also following the Keto diet, there’s a secret-menu drink that will refresh and satisfy, minus the carbs and sugar. The Peach Citrus White Tea is a spin-off of the chain’s Peach Citrus White Tea Infusion. The original is a blend of fruit and botanical flavors, featuring peach notes, mixed with Starbucks’ Iced White Tea.

    According to Spoon University, the tea blend has zero carbs and zero sugar, but because of the added liquid sugar, it would normally be off-limits on the Keto diet. The Peach Citrus White Tea, though, is totally Keto-friendly.

    To order the white drink, ask your barista for:

    • unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea with a splash of heavy cream
    • 2-4 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup
    • no water
    • light ice

    You can also try it blended! One Instagram user described the tea as “liquid peach cobbler.” Another compared the tea to Disney’s Peach Milk Tea from Epcot. Someone said they thought they’d been given the wrong drink, because it didn’t taste sugar-free. They stopped at another Starbucks and ordered the same drink to compare, and realized it was not a mistake, but the that the “drink is straight up AMAZING.”

    If you want to make Keto coffee at home, you can try this recipe. Even if you’re not on the Keto diet, if you like peach flavor, the Peach Citrus White Tea sounds like a winner!

    We Tried the Starbucks Keto White Drink Off the Secret Menu and We Don’t Hate It

    Before you subject your tastebuds to the weird and wonderful new foods and drinks going viral on Instagram, check out Brit + Co’s reviews on First Bite, our new series where we tell you if they are truly snack-tastic or totally terrible.

    We’ll be honest: When we heard Starbucks Keto White Drink was a thing, we were a little wary. We still had a bad taste in our mouths from Starbucks Keto Pink Drink and were unsure that we could put our taste buds through that torture again. But to our surprise, Starbucks Keto White Drink (~$4), an invention of keto dieters ‘gramming their creations and tagging them #KetoStarbucks, is actually quite good.

    If you want to order it, ask your barista for:

    • unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea
    • a splash of heavy cream
    • 2-4 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup
    • no water
    • light ice

    The taste is creamy, peachy, and refreshing. Some people on Instagram are calling it “liquid peach cobbler” and have compared it to Disney’s Peach Milk Tea at Epcot. We think it tastes more like peaches and cream or Trolli Peachie O’s Gummy Candies. We even tried it side-by-side with the blended version (like a Frappuccino). It tastes the same on the rocks or blended (with the exception of milkshake-like texture, obviously).

    Here’s the only downside. The sugar-free vanilla syrup doesn’t have sugar, but it does have sucralose. Some hardcore dieters are wary of all the chemicals in certain sugar-free sweeteners like sucralose and advise going for erythritol, monk fruit, Swerve, stevia, and xylitol instead. So, BYOS (bring your own sweetener) OR order this drink with stevia, something Starbucks does have. FYI, the drink may taste slightly different if you do, as you’ll be missing the vanilla element. That, or just consume in moderation!

    Starbucks’ Keto White Drink is delicious, and we can’t believe there’s no sugar in it. If real peaches and cream aren’t in the cards, this treat is worth a try.

    Suffering from a wicked case of Keto induced Starbucks confusion? Don’t panic! Here’s what you need to know to order Keto Starbucks drinks from iced & hot coffees, Frappuccinos, teas & Starbucks Secret Menu Keto drinks that are beyond brilliant!

    This post may contain affiliate links that help keep this content free.

    You have worked too hard cutting bread, pasta, and counting macros to blow it on your morning or afternoon Starbucks fix.

    Starbucks can be intimidating – even if you’re not new to the keto diet, and there isn’t a line of impatient coffee enthusiasts for days waiting for you to hurry up and order.

    If you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s easy to get confused and frustrated and get your order all kinds of wrong.

    The Truth About Starbucks Whipped Cream

    The bad news is Starbucks Whipped Cream is homemade. The good news is Starbucks Whipped Cream is homemade.

    Starbucks makes their Whipped Cream topping in-house with Heavy Cream + Vanilla Syrup, which adds carbs. A Ton of Carbs.

    Starbucks uses 8 pumps of Vanilla Syrup for every 16 ounces of heavy cream. If you take a quick trip to the back label of Starbucks Vanilla Syrup – which is on their website – you’ll see 20 grams of carbs per 2 tablespoons. Keep in mind this is for a batch of whipped cream not one serving, but still.

    Skip it!

    Why this is a good thing: You can always depend on Starbucks to have heavy whipping cream – a keto favorite – on hand!

    Warning: Hidden Sugars (& Carbs) Your Barista Can Do Nothing About

    Starbucks is all about customization, but some things are out of your baristas control like the crazy high sugar content in:

    • Classic Syrup
    • Matcha Mix
    • Refreshers
    • Lemonade
    • Chai Tea Latte Mix

    What To Use Instead of Milk In Keto Starbucks Drinks

    The details on macros for all your Starbucks milk options are at the bottom of this article, but in case you’re in a hurry I’ll Bottom Line It: Swap half & half or heavy whipping cream or a combo of half heavy cream/half water.

    Heavy Whipping Cream is my go-to for coffee – the fat content gives it a rich flavor that makes half & half taste like water. Sure, heavy cream has a few more calories, but I’ve found I need less sweetener when I use it.

    Barista Tip: Assume nothing at Starbucks – especially when you’re adding cream to your coffee or tea! They usually put Half & Half out with the sugar – but they don’t mind giving you cream – just ask!

    Sweeteners & Sugar-Free Syrups

    The Stevia at Starbucks is mixed with fructose & has 2 grams of carbs per packet. Sorry. You’re best bet is to go prepared: I keep these Stevia Drops & a million other things in my purse in case of a sweetener 911!

    In case you missed this tidbit earlier, skip the Classic Syrup! You’re looking at too much sugar & way too many carbs! You can try Starbucks sugar-free syrups if Sucralose doesn’t upset your stomach!

    Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup: 0 calories, 0 carbs
    Sugar-Free Cinnamon Dolce Syrup: 0 calories, 0 carbs
    Sugar-Free Peppermint Syrup: (seasonal) 0 calories, 0 carbs
    Skinny Mocha Syrup: (Reduced Sugar)

    Starbucks Sizes

    • Short: Hot Only – 8 oz.
    • Tall: 12 oz.
    • Grande: 16 oz.
    • Venti Hot: 20 oz.
    • Venti Iced: 24 oz.
    • Trenta Cold Only: 31 oz.

    Starbucks sizes are hella confusing & frustrating when you’re a I Need Coffee To Survive – kinda person. They’re also pretty important when it comes to ordering an off-menu drink. Here’s what you need to know before you give up or make an @ out of yourself like Paul Rudd in this scene from Role Models.

    Where To Find Nutrition Info

    Tracking macros? Don’t forget you’re looking for net carbs, not total. To calculate net carbs subtract the dietary fiber from the number of total carbs.

    Starbucks Interactive Nutrition Menu – You can use the search or browse for your drink by category. Once you find it hit the green arrow to the right to get the info, the downside to this option is not every substitution is listed as an option.

    Starbucks App – You don’t have to be a rewards program member anymore to calculate nutrition, save your fave drink combinations, order & pay using the Starbucks App.

    Starbucks Milk Options Per Cup

    Placing Your Order

    Want to make life easier on your barista & get your order faster? Request it in this order next time you go.

    • Hot or Iced: Give this detail first so your barista knows what kind of cup to grab!
    • Size: Also VIP for determining cup:)
    • Full Strength or Decaf
    • How many shots of espresso
    • Flavor Syrup
    • Milk or milk swap
    • Special Requests: Leave room for cream, sugar-free
    • Name: They don’t care how you spell your name – as long as they can shout it out!

    Channel Your Inner Barista

    Maybe you don’t want to fight the lines.

    Or spend the money.
    Or all of the above!

    This Starbucks Drink Is Keto-Friendly, and Apparently It’s the Bomb

    The Starbucks secret menu has a new edition, and it’s diet-friendly. Fans following the keto regimen can order the chain’s Peach Citrus White Tea Infusion without liquid cane sugar. The white tea blend doesn’t have carbs or sugar, so just ask your barista for sugar-free vanilla syrup in place of the cane sugar and a splash of heavy cream, and you’re good to go!

    12 Creative Keto Recipes

    Here’s what to say at the register: “Hi! May I please have a tall unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea with a splash of heavy cream, two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, no water, and light ice? Thank you.” Of course, size of drink and number of pumps are subject to change depending on individual preference.

    Dieters are raving about the peaches and cream-esque drink on Instagram. One woman thought her barista messed up her order because it was so good, and she drove to a different outpost to get another one.

    A post shared by Danielle (@daniellegoesketo) on Jul 5, 2018 at 7:02pm PDT

    “So I order it exactly as pictured (exactly how @ketosony did) took one sip and OMG!!!” @daniellegoesketo wrote. “I was like this can NOT be sugar free! I right away stopped drinking it thinking that the barista messed up my order and gave me the regular vanilla syrup cause it was pure DELICIOUSNESS!!”

    She continued: “So I decide to stop at another Starbucks to order the same thing and compare the 2 and WOW!! It was not a mistake! This drink is straight up AMAZING!!”

    A post shared by @mommy_loves_keto on Jun 22, 2018 at 7:56pm PDT

    Another woman had the drink blended into a Frappuccino. She claims it’s better than Starbucks’ keto-friendly pink drink (Passion Tango Iced Tea, sugar-free vanilla syrup, and heavy cream).

    For those who are unfamiliar with the keto diet, the goal is to achieve the metabolic state of ketosis, in which the body burns fat for fuel. Dieters have to strictly limit carbohydrate intake (sugars and starches) while consuming a modest amount of protein and tons of fat. Essentially, keto dieters eat all the butter, oil, meat, and cream they want while avoiding foods like pasta, bread, and sugar. If you’re interested in trying the keto diet yourself, get started with these 12 creative recipes.
