Brewed Coffee

Starbucks offers freshly brewed coffee in a couple of different roasts. This is an excellent low-carb option, and you can customize what you put in it. Grab a reusable cup while you are at it!

Starbucks typically offers a variety of low-carb sweetener options, including Stevia and Monkfruit.

Keep in mind that frothed milk often has added sugar. Consider half-and-half or heavy cream if you’re looking for a low-carb option. Unsweetened almond milk is usually a good choice, but please remember that Starbucks almond milk is sweetened.

Adding sugar-free syrup is a great way to take any coffee drink to the next level. In the past, Starbucks offered a variety of sugar-free sweeteners. For some unknown reason, they took away most of those options, and most stores now only offer sugar-free vanilla syrup. It’s been a disappointment for Starbucks fans who follow a low-carb lifestyle.

When ordering a latte at Starbucks or any coffee shop, swap the milk for half and half or heavy cream to keep the carbs lower. Choose a sugar-free syrup and sweetener.

Iced Coffee

Order an iced coffee with no classic syrup to keep it sugar-free. Starbucks typically puts traditional syrup in its iced coffee. Top it off with heavy cream and sweetener, and sugar-free syrup.

Nitro Cold Brew

Starbucks nitro cold brew is cold brew infused with nitrogen as it pours from the spout giving it a smooth taste and frothy texture. Order it without the cold foam, as it is sweetened.

Pink Drink

The low-carb pink drink is a popular item not on the Starbucks menu. You can order an unsweetened passion tea with no water, then add a splash of heavy cream and your choice of sweetener and sugar-free syrup.

The London Fog is made with Earl Grey tea, milk, and vanilla. For a low-carb option, order it with heavy cream and sugar-free vanilla.

Food Options

Finding low-carb options at Starbucks can be tricky, but a few good choices are available. The egg bites are a good lower-carb option. Starbucks also has a snack section that typically includes salami, cheese, nuts, and Moon Cheese, which are low-carb snacks.

Save Money

Last but not least, save some money. If you’re a regular at Starbucks, an excellent way to save a few bucks is to download the Starbucks app and sign up for rewards. Your purchases earn stars that you can use to get free drinks and food. You get a free drink or food item every year on your birthday. Another popular reason people enjoy the Starbucks app is the free brewed coffee and tea refills while in the store.
