Whether you prefer coffees, teas, or blended drinks, Starbucks offers an extensive menu to suit your taste buds.
Unfortunately, many menu options are high in sugar. If you’ve been left scratching your head wondering what to order to cut back on sugar, you’re not alone.
There’s no need to worry, though — the menu features plenty of sugar-free options, allowing you to enjoy a satisfying beverage without ramping up your sugar intake.
Here are 19 sugar-free drinks you can order at Starbucks (1).
1. Caffè Americano
This simple coffee staple is made by topping espresso with hot water, resulting in a warm, soothing drink that’s sugar-free and high in caffeine.
One grande Caffè Americano contains just 15 calories, 2 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar.
Espresso is a concentrated type of coffee that provides a good chunk of caffeine in each serving.
Not only is it sugar-free, but a double shot of espresso at Starbucks contains just 10 calories and 2 grams of carbs.
3. Brewed coffee
With just 5 calories and 0 grams of carbs and sugar per serving, brewed coffee roasts are a great option for those on a low carb or low sugar diet.
Starbucks offers several varieties, including Blonde, Dark, or Pike Place roasts. Feel free to explore the options to find your favorite.
If you prefer, add a bit of sugar-free sweetener like Splenda or stevia.
4. Espresso macchiato
Starbucks’ espresso macchiato is simply an espresso topped with a little steamed milk and foam.
It contains just 15 calories, 2 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar, although this can vary depending on your choice of milk.
Cappuccino is made by adding a thick layer of milk foam to espresso.
The drink doesn’t contain added sugar. Still, a grande cappuccino made with 2% milk provides 12 grams of naturally occurring sugar from the milk.
Thus, it may be a better option for those looking to limit their intake of added sugar rather than those following a low carb or ketogenic diet.
6. Flat white
Made by combining short shots of espresso with steamed whole milk, the flat white is a concentrated coffee drink that’s low in sugar.
Although a tall serving contains 13 grams of sugar from milk, it’s free of added sugars, syrups, and sweeteners.
7. Caffè Misto
Starbucks’ Caffè Misto contains equal amounts of brewed coffee and steamed milk.
Similarly to other coffee drinks, it contains 10 grams of sugar from milk but is made without added sugars.
8. Caffè latte
Caffè latte, also sometimes simply referred to as a latte, is made from espresso, steamed milk, and a light layer of foam.
Although many people choose to add sweeteners to their latte, the drink itself is free of added sugar. Still, it contains 18 grams of milk sugar in each 16-ounce (473-mL) serving.
9. Cold brew
Thanks to its rich, concentrated flavor, cold brew is a popular choice among coffee connoisseurs.
What’s more, it can be a great choice if you’re looking to scale back your sugar intake. There are just 5 calories and 0 grams of carbs and sugar in a grande cold brew.
Customize your cold brew with sugar-free add-ons like stevia, Splenda, or no-sugar vanilla syrup.
10. Nitro cold brew
Unlike their regular cold brew, Starbucks’ Nitro Cold Brew is infused with nitrogen, giving it a smooth and creamy texture and flavor.

You can add extra flavor to your nitro cold brew with a few pumps of your favorite sugar-free syrup, such as cinnamon dolce or vanilla.
