In this post, we will share more than thirty drinks at Starbucks that you can order and customize to comply with your keto regimen.
We will also share tips to make your drinks have a low carb content without compromising too much on the taste and creaminess.
And if you’re in the mood to nibble on something, we will tell you which keto food to order.
What Is Keto Diet?
A ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that helps your body get energy by burning fat, not sugars found in carbs like legumes, fruits, vegetables, and grains.
After reducing carbohydrate intake – only 20 – 50g of carbs per day – the body goes into ketosis or a metabolic state where fat is burned to release energy. You lose weight as a result.
In the liver, the fat is converted into ketones, which provide energy to the brain.
It takes two to four days for ketosis to start after you have started this special diet.
Keto Starbucks Drinks
Just because you’re on a keto diet doesn’t mean you have to stop visiting your local Starbucks.
By using sugar, syrup, and milk substitutes, you can customize your hot or iced drink and make it match your low-carb diet.

01. Keto Frappuccino
This is a twist on the regular Frappuccino as you will need to opt out of a sugary dollop of the Frappuccino base.
Instead, ask for a double-blended Grande iced coffee with extra ice and without any classic syrup.
Request two to three pumps of your favorite sugar-free syrup or sugar-free vanilla syrup and two to three shots of heavy cream.
You can also choose any unsweetened non-dairy milk like almond milk instead of heavy cream.
If you’re against sugar-free syrup, go for a natural sweetener like stevia or monk fruit.
The result will be a pretty creamy and sweet coffee concoction without the mountain of carbs.
Net carb: 5g
02. Keto Espresso Frappuccino
For an extra caffeine kick to get your day started on a smooth and cool note, you can order a keto espresso Frappuccino sans the sugary base.
Just ask your barista for a double blended Grande espresso Frappuccino with 3 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and a splash of almond milk. Voila! You have a keto espresso Frappuccino made to order.
Net carb: 4g
03. Iced Shaken Espresso
Just like bartenders use a cocktail shaker to serve up your favorite drink, the expert baristas at Starbucks also shake up an iced espresso to give you a glass of flavorful and cold espresso beverage.
The most basic iced shaken espresso consists of brewed espresso, ice, milk, and classic syrup. Starbucks also offers the same drink with almond or oat milk instead of dairy milk and chocolate malt powder and brown sugar syrup.
To make it keto-friendly, remember to ask the barista not to add the classic syrup, to replace milk with heavy cream or unsweetened almond milk, and to add two pumps of cinnamon dolce or sugar-free vanilla syrup for a bountiful dose of flavor without the carbs.
Net carb: 4g
Net carb: 2g (without the sugar-free syrup)
04. Iced Blonde Vanilla Latte
The iced blonde vanilla latte is nothing but milk, ice, vanilla syrup, and espresso.
The regular version is chockful of carbs from all the sugar.
But making keto Starbucks drinks is quite simple.
Just replace dairy milk with some heavy cream. The heavy cream will lend a rich texture to the iced blond vanilla latte.
You can ask for an unsweetened non-dairy milk substitute like soy or almond milk instead of heavy cream or 2% milk.
Instead of the regular vanilla syrup, ask for one or two pumps of the sugar-free version.
Net carb: 4g
05. Keto Iced Latte
This is a keto take on the traditional iced latte.
Order one Grande iced caffe latte with unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream.
Use a natural sweetener like this one to add some sweetness without the carbs in your drink.
Personally, adding heavy cream makes the iced latte creamy, just the way I like it!
Total carb: 2g
06. Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew
Plain old black coffee is rejuvenated into a frothy, dark, rich caffeine experience just by adding nitrogen!
The Starbucks nitro cold brew is a result of nitrogen passed through a cold brew that has been steeped for 20 hours.
It’s served from a keg and has a foamy white top with a velvet-rich feel.
If you’ve been avoiding black coffee for its thin texture, then try the nitro cold brew for a better mouthfeel.
By itself, the drink has zero carbs.
If you can afford up to 3 carbs, then dress it up with two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and a dash of heavy cream.
Net carb: 0g
Net carb: 3g (with heavy cream and sugar-free syrup)
07. Vanilla Sweet Cream Nitro Cold Brew
This is the basic cold brew topped with a silky dollop of homemade vanilla cream, mounting to 4 grams of carbs.
If you want less carb intake, ask for a replacement for the vanilla cream with one or two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and some heavy cream.
Net carb: 4g
Net carb: 1g (with two pumps of sugar-free syrup and heavy cream).
08. Iced Coffee
One of the simplest keto Starbucks drinks at 0 carbs is a plain iced coffee minus the classic syrup.
If you want to jazz it up a bit without straying from your keto diet, ask for two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and a bit of unsweetened almond milk.
Net carb: 2g
09. Double Shot On Ice
Another Starbucks keto-friendly drink with a double shot of espresso.
Instead of the 2% dairy milk and sweetener, ask your barista to splash some almond milk.
Carry your natural sweetener and add 2 to 4 packets to sweeten things up.
Net carb: 1.5g
10. Iced Mocha
A Grande iced mocha at Starbucks comes packed with 18 grams of carbs as it contains skinny mocha sauce, milk, and espresso.
But you can order the same in either of two ways to stay on track of your keto diet instead of the low-fat, high-carb regular version.
One, in a Grande iced Americano, ask the barista to add some heavy cream, sugar-free vanilla syrup, and mocha sauce.
This will have a net carb content of 8 grams. So, if you want to slash the carbs further, cut down on the sauce and syrup pumps after talking to the barista.
The second way to make keto iced mocha is to order a Grande skinny iced mocha.
Instead of the regular four pumps of syrup, ask for one or two.
Don’t forget to have the regular milk replaced with a non-dairy, unsweetened alternative like soy or almond milk or just heavy cream.
Your drink will have the full mocha flavor and a rich, creamy texture without the carbs.
Net carb: 8g (with the first method)
11. Iced Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte
The season is not too far when the Starbucks menu will highlight its Fall favorite – iced pumpkin spice latte.
The regular drink is made with milk, espresso, vanilla and pumpkin syrup, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon.
It’s served on ice with an extra large helping of whipped cream and some more pumpkin spice sprinkled on top.
No wonder there are 47 grams of carbs in the drink!
But, you can tone down this drink to keep the pumpkin spice flavor and a creamy mouthfeel with the bonus of much fewer carbs.
Just order an espresso with any non-dairy milk of your choice, heavy cream, and a single pump of pumpkin syrup served with nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. If you want to make it sweet, add a packet of a natural sweetener.
Another way to make this drink keto-friendly is to order an iced coffee, one pump of the pumpkin sauce, three pumps of vanilla syrup (or one pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup), half and half to replace milk or non-dairy milk to cut down the carbs further, and extra pumpkin spice topping to give you the full flavor.
Net carb: 12g (with the second version)
12. Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Latte
Although strictly not on the Starbucks keto menu, you can make a keto version of the vanilla bean coconut latte whether you prefer it hot or cold.
The regular drink is loaded with 26 grams of carbs, thanks to the vanilla bean powder and sweetened coconut milk.
Order your keto version by getting an Americano or a cold brew. Ask the barista to add light coconut milk, a pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup, and a scoop of vanilla bean powder.
This drink will contain 7 grams of carbs and you can slash it down further by not adding the vanilla bean powder. But that would compromise on the vanilla flavor.
Instead, you can still indulge in the vanilla flavor by having the vanilla bean powder and skipping the sugar-free vanilla syrup that contains sucralose.
Net carb: 7g
13. Keto Gingerbread Latte
‘Tis the season for merrymaking and some indulging in Christmassy drinks.
But if you’re on a keto diet, the standard gingerbread latte with 40 grams of carbs won’t do for you.
Unfortunately, there’s no sugar-free version of the gingerbread syrup.
So, you have to settle for plenty of powdered cinnamon to make up for the full gingerbread flavor from the syrup.
You can have either a hot or an iced version of the gingerbread latte.
Ask for an Americano with a pump of gingerbread syrup, some half and half, and two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.
Instead of half and half, you can choose unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream to cut down the carb content.
Another way to have fewer carbs in your drink is to ask for a single pump of sugar-free syrup.
Net carb: 7g (with half and half, sugar-free syrup, and one pump of gingerbread syrup).
14. Iced Flat White
The iced flat white is simply iced coffee with milk.
So, to make it keto, just order a Grande iced flat white and replace the dairy milk with heavy cream or unsweetened almond or soy milk.
The heavy cream will give the drink a rich taste and texture.
The non-dairy milk will still add a nutty and subtle flavor to the flat white.
Net carb: 4g
15. Iced Toasted Oat Milk Shaken Espresso
A relatively newer addition to the Starbucks menu, the iced toasted oat milk shaken espresso is made with blonde espresso, toasted vanilla syrup, and oat milk.
To make a keto version, choose half oat milk and half almond milk, and four pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup. This will have a carb count of 3 grams as opposed to 5 grams if you opt for oat milk only.
Net carb: 5g (with only oat milk)
16. Iced Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte
This drink is featured on the regular menu at Starbucks.
Targeted at calorie-conscious coffee drinkers, the iced skinny cinnamon dolce latte is made from espresso, two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, and plenty of cinnamon sprinkles, ice, and fat-free dairy milk.
The drink packs 12 grams of carbohydrates in the Grande size, which is a bit steep if you’re on a ketogenic diet.
Hence, you can create a keto version by swapping the dairy milk with unsweetened plant-based milk like coconut or soy, or almond milk.
Another way to make an iced skinny cinnamon dolce latte is by ordering an iced coffee with unsweetened non-dairy milk and a couple of pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup topped with plenty of cinnamon powder. This stripped-down version will contain 6 grams of carbs.
If you want, you can add a packet of monk fruit sweetener like this one or stevia sweetener.
Net carb: 6g
17. Black Coffee
A Grande cup of dark roast black coffee without any additions like milk or sugar is perfect for you at 0 carbs if you’re following a keto diet.
In my opinion, coffee is at its best when it’s unadulterated with syrups, sugars, milk, or cream.
You get the true coffee essence when you drink it by itself.
Moreover, there are health benefits associated with black coffee.
- Calories: 2
- Protein: 0 grams
- Fat: 0 grams
- arbohydrates: 0 grams
- Fiber: 0 grams
- Sugar: 0 grams
- Sodium: 5 milligrams
Net carb: 0g
There’s hardly any coffee aficionado out there who would not be familiar with espresso or who has never tasted it.
The classic espresso comes in a short cup of 3 ounces and contains a shot or an ounce of espresso.
If you’re looking for more kick, order a doppio or double espresso shot to literally make you wake up and smell the coffee!
With just 1 gram of carbs, the espresso can be your regular morning partner and keep you on track with your keto diet.
Net carb: 1g
19. Espresso Con Panna
Treat yourself to a variation of the classic espresso by adding whipped cream to two shots of espresso.
The carb count in this drink is only 2 grams while the fat content from a spoon of whipped cream is 2.5 grams only, helping you to feel full for longer.
The espresso con panna is also served in an espresso cup and so there’s none of the guilt feeling attached when you order a regular drink with swirls of cream.
Net carb: 2g
Americano is made by adding 6 ounces of hot water to a single or double shot of espresso.
That means you have 1 to 2 grams of carbs depending on the number of espresso shots.
Sometimes we may get confused about black coffee versus Americano.
Black coffee is made in a drip coffee machine whereas Americano is made with espresso shots.
If you want to make a keto version of the Americano, choose any natural sweetener like stevia or monk fruit, heavy cream, or cinnamon.
Net carb: 1g (with a single espresso shot without any additions)
Cappuccino is a creamy, frothy cup of coffee decadence that can be an occasional treat for keto dieters.
Regular dairy milk has loads of carbs – 12 grams in a cup – so you will need a keto-friendly replacement.
As espresso is topped with milky foam in a cappuccino, you can tweak it to use unsweetened almond, soy, or coconut milk that contains just one gram of carb per cup.
You could also have the espresso topped with heavy cream and skip the non-dairy milk altogether.
The high-fat, low-carb heavy cream will help you stay on the keto diet and give you a smooth, creamy cappuccino.
If you want to add a tinge of sweetness, go for a couple of pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup or two packets of stevia. But this will add carbs to your drink.
Net carb: 1g (with any unsweetened non-dairy milk and no sweetener or syrup)
22. Caffe Misto
Known as café au lait in France, Caffe Misto in Starbucks uses a 1:1 ratio of coffee to steamed milk.
You get a subtler coffee flavor since it doesn’t use an espresso shot but brewed coffee.
Instead of using 2% regular dairy milk, ask the barista to use unsweetened soy, almond, or coconut milk for a velvety, rich cup.
Net carb: 2g
23. Café Latte
In café latte, you get a sweet balance between espresso and steamed milk with a foamy top.
For a café latte keto style, ask the barista to use unsweetened almond or soy, or coconut milk instead of dairy milk.
If you’re okay with some dairy addition, then ask for heavy cream instead of milk.
Use natural sweeteners if you must and you’ll have a drink within 2.5 grams of carbs.
If you add a couple of pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, the net carb count will rise to 4.5 grams.
Net carb: 2.5g (without sugar-free syrup)
24. Flat White
As the name suggests, the flat white is flat with none of the foamy milk top you find in cappuccino.
Made from two espresso shots and dairy milk, you can turn this into one of the easiest keto Starbucks drinks in two ways.
First, just get almond milk to replace the whole milk.
In the second way to get a keto flat white, order a Short flat white to be made with half water and half heavy cream.
Add two packets of natural sweeteners to make it sweet. The net carb count will be 1.5 grams.
If you need more than two espresso shots in your flat white, order a Grande flat white and ask the barista to make it with ¼ heavy cream and ¾ water.
To sweeten the Grande flat white, you’ll need four packets of any natural sweetener.
Taken this way, the carb content will be 3 grams.
Net carb: 1.5g (if Short cup size is used)
25. Espresso Macchiato
If you want a full blast of caffeine in the morning with a creamy texture, then espresso macchiato is your best bet.
Steamed milk is added to two espresso shots to make this classic drink.
But to make the keto version, all you need to do is replace the dairy milk with a splash of heavy cream.
Want to make it sweet? Just add a couple of packs of natural sweeteners and you have a 1-gram carb Keto drink.
Net carb: 1g
26. Caramel Macchiato
Caramel doesn’t exactly sound keto-friendly but you can reduce the drizzle amount to still get the flavor and sweetness without throwing your ketogenic diet off track.
The regular Grande caramel macchiato has an espresso shot, oodles of steamed milk, a generous caramel drizzle, and three pumps of vanilla syrup. Small wonder it has 35 grams of carbs.
But with a little adjustment, you can bring down the carb content by ordering a skinny caramel macchiato that uses a sugar-free vanilla syrup.
Choose unsweetened almond milk instead of dairy milk for a nutty flavor.
And reduce the portion of caramel drizzle to give you the flavor without going crazy on the carb count.
As the net carb will depend on the caramel drizzle amount, there’s no specific carb amount for the keto caramel macchiato.
27. Blonde Vanilla Latte
This is the hot version of the iced blonde vanilla latte.
To make it keto, ask for a Grande blonde vanilla latte to be made with heavy cream or almond milk instead of the usual 2% dairy milk.
Go for two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.
If you still miss the sweetness, add a couple of packets of stevia or monk fruit natural sweetener.
Compared to the iced version, it has one gram more carbs.
Net carb: 5g
28. Cinnamon Dolce Latte
One of the most favorite winter warmers, the Grande cinnamon dolce latte is made by using two shots of espresso, 2% milk steamed, milk foam, and four pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup topped with whipped cream and cinnamon dolce sprinkles.
As you have figured out by now that the regular version is full of sugars and carbs.
Therefore, to make it keto-friendly, ask for a Grande cinnamon dolce latte without the whipped cream and cinnamon dolce toppings.
Instead of the 2% milk, replace it with heavy cream or almond milk.
Add three to four pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.
To get the maximum cinnamon flavor, ask the drink to be topped with regular powdered cinnamon.
Pro Tip: You can make your own cinnamon sugar by adding ground cinnamon to a natural sweetener.
Net carb: 5g
29. Keto Chai Tea Latte
The chai tea base at Starbucks clocks at 45 grams of carbs due to the honey and sugar in the chai concentrate.
Create a keto chai tea latte by asking the barista to use two teabags and none of the chai concentrate in a Grande Teavana tea.
If you have this version, there are zero carbs.
But for some decadence, ask for a couple of splashes of heavy cream or almond milk, a natural sweetener, two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup, and a good sprinkling of cinnamon.
The carb count with heavy cream, sugar-free vanilla syrup, and cinnamon comes to 4.5 grams.
Net carb: 4.5g (with heavy cream, sugar-free vanilla syrup, and cinnamon).
30. Keto London Fog Tea Latte
Filled with hints of bergamot, lavender, and citrus flavors, this light tea latte is the perfect winter afternoon companion.
You can have a zero-carb keto version by ordering two teabags of Early grey and hot water.
For a richer taste and creaminess, top with heavy cream and a maximum of two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup or a natural sweetener.
Net carb: 0g (without sugar-free vanilla syrup or sweetener or heavy cream)
31. Iced London Fog Tea Latte
In the summers, you can make an iced London fog tea latte by ordering a Grande iced London fog tea latte with almond milk and three pumps of sugar-free vanilla sauce.
Another of the wide range of keto Starbucks drinks that help you to indulge without derailing your diet.
Net carb: 2g
32. Royal English Breakfast Tea
Another Starbucks keto hot tea option, the Royal English Breakfast tea comes at 4g carbs if you order a Grande Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte with three pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and almond milk.
You can have the same drink in summer with its iced version.
Net carb: 4g
33. Unsweetened Iced Teas
Choose from a range of iced teas like black tea, passion tango tea, and green tea to have a refreshing keto-friendly summer drink without any carbs.
Add any natural sweetener if you want to dial things up a bit.
Net carb: 0g
34. Iced Matcha Tea Latte
The base of this drink is the matcha tea blend which contains sugar. Milk and ice are added to the regular matcha tea latte.
Since the Grande uses three scoops of the match tea blend, start by asking for only one scoop to make it keto-friendly. One scoop has 6 grams of carbs.
Compensate with a green tea bag to get the full green tea flavor.
Replace the 2% regular dairy milk with coconut or almond milk. A heavy cream is also an option.
Net carb: 6g (without any non-dairy milk or heavy cream)
35. Iced Green Tea
There’s nothing remotely refreshing than an iced green tea at Starbucks on a hot summer day.
With an infusion of lemongrass, mint, and lemon verbena, this is one of the zero-carb Starbucks drinks that will not only recharge your body and mind but will also give you plenty of health benefits if you have it by itself without any syrup.

Net carb: 0g
36. Starbucks Keto Pink Drink
The original pink drink at Starbucks has 27 grams of carbs, thanks to the strawberry acai refreshers drink that’s made with coconut milk and uses freeze-dried strawberries as toppings.
The keto pink drink has become popular although it doesn’t taste the same as the classic one.
However, you can still taste the pink drink by ordering an iced Passion Tango tea served with a couple of heavy cream splashes and a pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup.
In my opinion, you can skip the heavy cream and go for a splash of unsweetened coconut milk to make the drink taste as close as possible to the original one.
Net carb: 5g (with heavy cream and sugar-free syrup)
Tips On How To Order Keto Starbucks Drinks
Always keeping track of the carb count in your food and drinks is a problem, especially if you’re in a local Starbucks where the menu board that greets you doesn’t give you any indication of being keto-friendly or not.
The plethora of hot and cold coffee, tea, and other categories of drinks may be confusing if you don’t how to order or customize a keto drink.
So, here are the top six tips to keep in mind when you visit Starbucks so that you’re sure you’re not adding carbs to your diet.
01. Bring Your Own Natural Sweeteners
Instead of depending on the sweeteners offered at Starbucks, bring your own packets of stevia or monk fruit sweeteners.
This will keep you from having sugars and carbs that would hamper the ketosis state in your body.
Choose a brand like Sweet Nature All-Natural Erythritol Sweetener for a zero-carb experience.
02. Skip The Sweeteners At Starbucks
Splenda contains sucralose (artificial sugar) and maltodextrin. The safety of using Splenda is still undergoing research.
If you do use these brands, do so in moderation – two packets at max per drink.
For more packets, it’s better to use your regular sweetener.
03. Ditch The Whipped Cream
Whipped cream is full of fat which is okay for a ketogenic diet. However, it has sugars and therefore, carbs too.
So it’s better to have your keto drinks without whipped cream.
04. Say Yes To Almond Milk Or Heavy Cream
If you use ¼ cup of almond milk in your Starbucks keto drink, it will have 0.35 grams of carbs.
Using two tablespoons of heavy cream will give you less than a gram of carbs.
You can cut the carbs more by using half heavy cream and half water.Nutrition Facts Of 2 Tablespoons Of Heavy Cream
- Calories: 103
- Fat: 11.03g
- Carbs: 0.83g
- Protein: 0.61g
- Calories: 10
- Fat: 10.9g
- Carbs: 0.35g
- Protein: 0.38g
05. Go Easy On The Sugar-Free Syrups
Contrary to what we think, sugar-free is not necessarily free from carbs.
A pump of sugar-free syrup in Starbucks has 1 gram of carbs.
So, it’s good to go easy on the pumps. Add one or two pumps of any sugar-free syrup to give your drink your desired flavor.
06. Skinny Drinks At Starbucks Are Not Keto-Friendly
Skinny doesn’t mean low-carb!
Starbucks skinny drinks are made with sugar-free syrups and no-fat milk.
This means the dairy milk still has sugars in it and that means carbs!
And as mentioned earlier, sugar-free syrup does have carbs in it.
Keto Food From Starbucks Menu
Besides a wide range of keto drinks, if you want to eat something that’s keto, here’s a list of the food you can buy.
01. Creminelli Sopressata Uncured Salami And Monterey Jack Cheese Plate
Satisfy your craving with something meaty and cheesy with this plate that has 0 carbs.
02. Babybel Cheese Wheel
The perfect on-the-go snack that won’t come in the way of your keto diet, these cheese wheels come at 0 carbs.
03. Cheddar Moon Cheese
Each bag of Cheddar Moon Cheese has just 5 grams of carbs, making it a great keto snack option.
04. Starbucks String Cheese
The house brand of string cheese has only a gram of carb and is a fun snack when you’re feeling light hunger.
05. Squirrel Brand Classic Almonds
Almonds are dry-roasted and sea salt is added to give this snack a super crunch and taste.
One pack of these almonds contains 4 grams of carbs.
The Bottom Line
You don’t need to deprive yourself of the range of Starbucks hot and cold drinks on the menu.
Just ask the barista to replace the flavored syrups with sugar-free ones, the sugars with a natural sweetener, and the dairy milk with heavy cream or a non-dairy alternative like soy, almond, or coconut milk.
Carry your preferred natural sweetener with you if you want to be absolutely sure of sticking to a keto regimen. If you are interested in Starbucks all cup sizes, check it here!
How Do You Order A Keto-Friendly Drink At Starbucks?

Is Starbucks Sugar-Free Keto?
Yes, the Starbucks sugar-free syrups are keto friendly and won’t pile on the carbs in your drink.
