9 Keto-Friendly Starbucks Drinks and Snacks

If you swing by Starbucks as a part of your daily routine, you may wonder how many of its beverages and foods are keto-friendly.

Although starting the ketogenic diet may involve transforming your food habits, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to cut out your favorite coffee chain altogether.

In fact, making a few modifications to your order can ensure that you’re still able to enjoy your Starbucks ritual while on this low carb, high fat diet.

Here are 9 of the best keto-friendly drinks and snacks available at Starbucks.

1. Low carb Pink Drink

This keto-friendly drink has recently exploded in popularity due to both its vibrant pink color and delicious flavor.

It’s made using Iced Passion Tango Tea as a base but trades the liquid cane sugar for sugar-free syrup. The nutrition information below includes the addition of 1 ounce of heavy cream to boost the flavor and fat content.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of low carb Pink Drink contains:

HOW TO ORDER
Order an Iced Passion Tango Tea with four pumps of sugar-free syrup instead of liquid cane sugar and 1 ounce of heavy cream.

2. Caffè Misto

This delicious coffee drink is made using equal parts steamed milk and coffee, making it a great choice for the keto diet.

Simply switch the steamed dairy milk for almond milk to reduce the number of calories and carbs in your cup.

You can also opt for a combination of heavy cream and water in place of the milk, which increases the calorie and fat contents but keeps your carb intake in check.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of Caffè Misto with 8 ounces of almond milk provides:

  • Calories: 37
  • Fat: 2.6 grams
  • Protein: 1.5 grams
  • Carbs: 1.5 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams

If you opt for adding 4 ounces of heavy cream and 4 ounces of water:

  • Calories: 404
  • Fat: 43 grams
  • Protein: 3.4 grams
  • Carbs: 3.3 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Ask for a Caffè Misto with almond milk or equal parts heavy cream and water.

3. Sopressata salami and Monterey Jack

This scrumptious snack tray features Italian dry salami and flavorful Monterey Jack cheese.

In addition to being low in carbs and high in protein, it packs a good amount of fat into each serving.

One snack tray contains:

  • Calories: 220
  • Fat: 17 grams
  • Protein: 15 grams
  • Carbs: 0 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Ask for the Creminelli Snack Tray, which is available at most franchises.

4. Brewed coffee

Ordering a cup of freshly brewed coffee from Starbucks is an excellent, carb-free option to get your caffeine fix on the keto diet.

Be sure to skip add-ins like milk, sugar, syrups or coffee creamer to keep your carb count low.

Instead, you can add a splash of heavy cream or a bit of butter, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, or coconut oil to boost the fat content without adding any carbs.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of brewed coffee contains:

  • Calories: 5
  • Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 1 gram
  • Carbs: 0 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams

Ask for a Blonde Roast, Dark Roast, or Pike Place Roast and skip the high carb extras like milk, sugar, and coffee creamer.

5. Low carb London Fog

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

Still, you can easily give it a low carb twist by using sugar-free syrup and 1 ounce of heavy cream instead of milk.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of low carb London Fog contains:

  • Calories: 101
  • Fat: 11 grams
  • Protein: 1 gram
  • Carbs: 1 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Order an iced London Fog Tea Latte with sugar-free syrup and 1 ounce of heavy cream.

6. Cheddar Moon Cheese

If you’re looking for a low carb, pre-portioned, portable snack, grab a bag of Moon Cheese the next time you’re at Starbucks.

These crunchy cheddar puffs are delicious, low in calories, and loaded with flavor, making them a great addition to your keto routine.

One bag of cheddar Moon Cheese contains:

  • Calories: 70
  • Fat: 5 grams
  • Protein: 1 gram
  • Carbs: 1 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Look for the cheddar flavor of Moon Cheese snack bags at your local Starbucks. They’ve available at most locations.

7. Skinny Mocha

Typically, Starbucks’ Caffè Mocha combines espresso with mocha sauce, steamed milk, and whipped cream.

Swapping in skinny mocha sauce and trading the milk for 8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk can significantly slash the carb and calorie contents of your drink.

Alternatively, you can use heavy whipping cream and water in place of milk. Note that using 4 ounces of heavy cream brings the calorie count up to 470, and raises the fat content to 45 grams.

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

  • Calories: 117
  • Fat: 4 grams
  • Protein: 7.5 grams
  • Carbs: 13.5 grams
  • Fiber: 4 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Ask for a Skinny Mocha with sugar-free skinny mocha syrup and almond milk or equal parts heavy whipping cream and water.

8. Keto White Drink

This delicious keto-friendly drink is one of the most popular items on Starbucks’ “secret menu,” which is a set of items that you can order but isn’t listed on the regular menu.

It’s made by adding a few pumps of sugar-free syrup to unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea, along with a bit of ice and 1 ounces of heavy cream.

One 16-ounce (475-ml) serving of Keto White Drink contains:

Calories: 101

Fat: 11 grams

Protein: 1 gram

Carbs: 1 grams

Fiber: 0 grams

HOW TO ORDER
Tell the barista you’d like an unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea without water but with four pumps of sugar-free syrup, ice, and 1 ounce of heavy cream.

9. Snack tray with carrots, white cheddar, and almonds

This savory tray is a great option if you’re looking for a well-rounded keto snack, as its combination of veggies, nuts, and dairy is particularly nutritious.

It’s not only low in carbs and high in fiber but also packs a hearty dose of healthy fats.

One snack tray contains:

  • Calories: 140
  • Fat: 10 grams
  • Protein: 6 gram
  • Carbs: 6 grams
  • Fiber: 3 grams
HOW TO ORDER
Ask for the Prosnax Carrots, White Cheddar Cheese, and Almonds Snack Tray, which is available at most franchises.

The bottom line

Following a low carb, ketogenic diet doesn’t mean that you have to give up all of your favorite foods and drinks at Starbucks.

In fact, making small adjustments to your order opens up a wealth of possibilities. Doing so can increase your order’s fat content while keeping its carb count low.

The next time you stop at Starbucks, keep some of these options in mind.
