How to Order Keto at Starbucks

Here is an easy guide to ordering sugar free, low carb, dairy free and keto friendly Starbucks drinks and meals to fit your lifestyle in Canada. These hot and iced drinks will have you sipping sugar free at Starbucks all year long!

We bought every drink and meal to go ourselves, using the Starbucks Canada mobile app where possible (look for the “*“ throughout the blog to know which items can be ordered through the Starbucks App). 

We cover coffee and meal options and include important tips and tricks in both sections. If you can't make it to Starbucks, we have options for you to make these drinks at home!

Coffee-Based Beverages

Any Starbucks coffee based drink has a ton of options to keep your drink low carb and sugar free.

  • Choose any of these cold coffee options
  • then add your preferred dairy or dairy free option - or bring your own like JOI Dairy Free Nut Milk or Omega Power Creamer
  • add any syrups or sweeteners (see chart below) - or bring your own like Sweet Monk

*The calories and carbs listed under each coffee-based beverage is based on no add-ins.*

 Starbucks Drinks - Important Tips

Macros/ nutrition from add-ins may vary from store to store (ie: A light splash of heavy cream can vary from 1 tbsp to 4 tbsp depending on the barista. That means calories can go from 50 to 200 quickly and carbs can go from 1g to 4g).
    • If you can, a great option is to pre-measure your cream to bring with you. This saves on the guessing game of how much dairy they’ve added in your drink - if you are tracking macros.

Keep in mind that Sugar Free Syrups do have carbs. Generally, 2 pumps of sugar free syrups is 1g carbs.

These tips can be applied to any coffee shop too! Ask if they have sugar free alternatives or just enjoy a cold brew black or with a splash of cream/ almond milk.

    Starbucks Meals & Snacks - Important Info

    Are the Starbucks Canada egg bites gluten free and dairy free? There is no gluten in the ingredients but this is an unpackaged product and Starbucks uses shared equipment to store, prepare and serve them. The egg bites are not dairy free as the first ingredient is cottage cheese.

    How are the ingredients for the egg bites? This depends on your goal. If you avoid any ingredients you cannot pronounce, these are not for you. If you want the convenience of an overall healthier option compared to what else is available, these are a decent option! The egg bites contain carrageenan, maltodextrin, gums, flavours BUT they are less than 2% of the cottage cheese which is the first ingredient. There is also potato starch and a mold inhibiter. The bacon as no added nitrates. You can find the ingredients on the Starbucks Canada website.

    How are the ingredients for the protein boxes? This again depends on your goal. The meat is not nitrate free and the bread sticks are made with wheat flour (not gluten free). 

    In the egg and cheese protein box, there is added sugar in the pita and peanut butter, but it is not the first ingredient. The pita is not gluten free but does have flax seeds, barley grits and millet in addition to the wheat.  You can check out the ingredients in full here
