6 low carb Starbucks drinks and how to order them

One of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow is @themacrobarista. He finds macro friendly versions of popular coffee drinks with a fraction of the sugar and carbs that the regular menu items have. Most of the time I drink black iced coffee, but since following him, I’ve been inspired to get creative with my own orders and have found a few that satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt of 50g of sugar. Here are a few of my favorite Starbucks orders and how I mobile order them:

  1. Salted Caramel Latte
    • Ingredients – Skim or almond milk, two espresso shots, toffee nut syrup, caramel syrup
    • My mobile order:
      •  Select a grande Caffe Latte
      • Change to skim or almond milk
      • Add 1 pump caramel syrup
      • Add 2 pumps toffee nut syrup
  2. Nitro Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almond Milk Foam (this one is a normal menu item this year!)
    • Ingredients – Nitro cold brew, almond milk and cinnamon
    • My mobile order:
      • Select Nitro Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almond Milk Foam
      • Optional: Select light foam
      • Optional: Add 1-2 pumps sugar free vanilla syrup
  3. Nutty Americano (My personal favorite lately!)
    • Ingredients – Espresso, hot water, mocha sauce, toffee nut syrup
    • My mobile order:
      • Select Caffe Americano
      • Select grande cup
      • Change to three shots of blonde espresso
      • Add 1 pump mocha sauce
      • Add 1-3 pumps toffee nut syrup
  4. Skinny Pumpkin Cold Foam

  5. Caramel Protein Latte – This one is a hack I learned when I did WW and I still love it! You can purchase Premier Protein at most grocery stores, Target, Costco or online here.
    • Ingredients – Espresso and a caramel Premier Protein – not sold at Starbucks
    • My mobile order:
      • Select an Iced Espresso
      • Select a venti cup
      • Once you get your espresso, pour your protein shake in the cup and stir!
  6. Vanilla Macchiato
    • Ingredients – Espresso, steamed milk, sugar free vanilla syrup
    • My mobile order:
      • Select an Espresso Macchiato
      • Select 2% milk (I think it foams better)
