Topping the list of drinks on the Starbucks secret menu is the keto white drink, a proven Instagram favorite.

Another keto friendly Starbucks drink in white — aside from the keto white — is the low-carb white, which has more whipping cream and water than your usual steamed whole milk. It still has that same froth and creaminess minus the carbs and coffee buzz.

On the Starbucks Secret Menu

Keto Friendly Starbucks Alternatives To Your Favorites

Meanwhile, there are Starbucks favorites you had to let go of because of your strict keto diet. But ordering a Keto friendly Starbucks alternative to the traditional Starbucks drinks is the secret to keeping your coffee shop habits the sugar rush and the compromise to your keto diet.

Low-Carb Caramel Macchiato

Low-Carb Caramel Macchiato

A barista suggested ditching the hot version of the caramel macchiato for an iced drink — because of the unhealthy milk carbs. Switching the ingredients of the traditional caramel macchiato to keto options won’t make it any more healthy because of its mix of espresso, vanilla syrup and caramel sauce. Still, the keto friendly Starbucks alternative to the delicious caramel macchiato is better than nothing.

How to place your order:

“Skinny caramel macchiato with almond milk and no caramel drizzle.”

Low-Carb Americano

Low-Carb Americano

Already low-carb to begin with, the Americano is your best bet for a keto friendly Starbucks drink — just add whipped cream, which gives the Americano just the right amount of creaminess that won’t give you a sugar rush and ruin your keto diet.

How to place your order:

“Americano with heavy cream. Simple.”

Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced chai tea latte

While chai tea latte is one of the few drinks that is just as delicious as its keto friendly Starbucks alternative, you cannot order the iced chai tea latte online. You have to come up to the barista to make sure you get your keto friendly Starbucks fix.

How to place your order:

“Chai tea with a splash of heavy cream and X pumps of sugar-free vanilla” or “iced lightly sweet chai latte, no liquid cane, breve (half-and-half instead of milk)”

Iced Pineapple Tea

Iced pineapple tea

Okay, so it is not-so-secret that Starbucks has iced tea, which is keto-safe in itself. If you want some flavoring to make the unsweetened (which is how you should order your drink) version still delicious as a keto friendly Starbucks alternative, there is a secret to it such as the iced pineapple tea.

How to place your order:

“Iced green, black, or white tea, with a pineapple fusion, unsweetened.”

Skinny Mocha

Skinny Mocha

A regular Starbucks mocha is made of milk, whipped cream, and mocha sauce, which is 20 grams of carbs mixed together — obviously not good for your keto diet. But the Keto friendly Starbucks version of the regular mocha puts “skinny” to its name when you drink it sugar-free and with no milk.

How to place your order:

“Skinny sugar-free mocha sauce.”

Freshly Brewed Coffee

Freshly brewed coffee

Have you been drinking freshly brewed coffees outside Starbucks, thinking they were already keto-friendly? Well, they are not, which makes Starbucks the perfect place for your coffee fix. Just order Pike Place Roast on the menu or their other no-carb views like the blonde roast and dark roast.

How to place your order:

“Pike Place Roast.”
