New to keto and wondering what your hot keto Starbucks drink order should be?! Let me tell you how to order the perfect keto-friendly drinks!
We all know that I am a Starbucks addict and can be found blogging at my local coffee shop every Monday. My morning starts with a delicious low carb coffee fix everyday!
The challenge when following a ketogenic diet is making sure that our coffee order is following these guidelines. Sugar and carbs are essentially the enemy and they are hiding everywhere, especially in your favorite Starbucks treats.

It has taken me some time to find the perfect low carb drink at Starbucks because there are all sorts of hidden ingredients in our favorites latte or coffee. Even when you think your drink should only contain cream and coffee, it doesn’t.
Finding these hidden ingredients can really be a challenge and takes a bit of investigating to find the best sugar-free option.
Starbucks low-carb ingredients:
- sugar-free syrup
- almond milk
- black coffee
- heavy whipping cream
- coconut milk
- hot water
- pike place roast
- artificial sweeteners
- espresso shots
- green tea
- blonde roast
- sugar substitutes
- dark roast
Starbucks ingredients to avoid:
- classic syrup
- dolce syrup
- vanilla syrup
- steamed milk
- caramel drizzle
- classic starter
- soy milk
The baristas at my Starbucks are fabulous and have helped me to puzzle out what the absolute best drink order is for someone looking for the perfect keto Starbucks drinks. So here it is! Simply grab a screen shot of this drink label or write it down. Here’s what I ask for…
Starbucks Keto Hot Drink Order:
- Tall Americano Misto
- One Pump of Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup (or SF Cinnamon Dolche)
- Heavy Cream (or Breve)
This drink will contain a total of 2 net carbs when ordered this way. One carb for the syrup (one carb per pump) and one carb for the cream (one carb per tablespoon). You could add more pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup if you wanted, totally personal preference!
It’s a good idea to avoid chai tea latte or lattes all together because the steamed Heavy Cream (or Breve) is often more than half of the cup!
I snapped a few photos of the nutritional information on both the Heavy Cream and Breve at my local Starbucks. Both contain one carb per one tablespoon so you can decide which to use according to your taste. Avoid whole milk as it contains added sugar.
