6 Keto Friendly Low Carb Coffees to Order at Starbucks for Fall

Keto friendly Cinderella and Great Pumpkin Lattes for everyone!
Posted October 10, 2019 by Stephanie

We’re on a little fall road trip peeping the leaves right now. Nothing says fall to me more than the windows open to let in the crispy cold air, the seat heaters on full blast, and a cozy cup of warm coffee in my hand. Only thing is, all the best fall drinks are crazy calorie bombs (I’m looking at you pumpkin spice latte) and all I want is a sweet treat that won’t kick me out of keto. I’m not super strict about it, especially while we’re traveling, but I’m stilling trying to keep the carbs and calories down while living that fall coffee life.

Here are 6 keto friendly low carb coffees to order at Starbucks, which happens to be our road trip caffeine fuel of choice!

1. Keto Midnight Cinderella Latte
I’m sure you’ve seen the “Cinderella Latte” all over the internet and instagram. It’s a “secret menu” item that’s supposed to be like a velvety balanced pumpkin drink. It has half pumpkin sauce and half white chocolate but that would be way too crazy for a low carb drink so instead I get a keto Midnight Cinderella Latte. It’s creamy, just the right amount of sweet, and pumpkin-y. Here’s how you order it: tall americano with 1 pump skinny mocha sauce, 1 pump pumpkin sauce, light heavy cream. Light heavy cream in case you’re wondering is heavy cream, about a tablespoon or so. If you’re crazy about tracking your macros, don’t ask for it with the heavy cream – the “light” part differs from barista to barista – and add it in yourself.

2. Keto Great Pumpkin Latte
The other “secret” menu latte that’s been floating around the internets is the great pumpkin latte, in homage to Charlie Brown. It’s a regular latte but with half the pumpkin sauce replaced for toffee nut. Starbucks doesn’t have a sugar free toffee nut so I just invented my own great pumpkin by going with 1 pump of pumpkin sauce and 1 pump of cinnamon dolce in an americano with a splash of cream. It’s extra cinnamon-y with a hint of pumpkin and so, so good. Order it like this: tall americano with 1 pump pumpkin sauce and 1 pump sugar free cinnamon dolce. Add in 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream yourself or ask for light heavy cream.

3. Low Carb Keto Mocha
If you love chocolate and coffee together then obviously you love mochas and have been missing them ever since you decided to do the whole keto thing. Treat yourself and order a keto friendly mocha! Ask for a no whip short mocha with skinny mocha sauce, replace the milk with half heavy whipping cream, half water.
Macros: 2 grams net carbs, 5 grams fat, 55 calories

4. Low Carb Keto Flat White
If you’ve been to Australia, you know that flat white are a super popular milky coffee drink that’s strong and creamy. They’re delicious but because they’re made with milk, they not really keto friendly. But, you can make a quick sub by switching out the milk for heavy whipping cream. Order: short flat white, no milk, half heavy whipping cream, half water, steamed.
Macros: 2 grams net carbs, 5 grams fat, 55 calories

5. Low Carb Keto Chai Tea Latte
I love the warming spices of a chai tea latte – they’re so cozy! Typically chai tea lattes are made with a pre-sweetned chai tea concentrate, but luckily, they have tea bags too. Just order a tall chai tea with 2 tea bags, 1 pump of cinnamon dolce and then add a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream yourself. Sweet and spicy and perfect for fall.
Macros: 0.5 grams net carbs, 5 grams fat, 51 calories

6. Keto London Fog Latte
London fog lattes are my fave! Creamy earl grey tea with round vanilla notes and a splash of sweetness is perfect on a misty fall day. The London fog/earl grey tea lattes at Starbucks are kind of a load of calories, but there’s definitely a way around that. Order a tall earl grey tea with 2 tea bags, 1 pump of sugar free vanilla, and light heavy whipping cream. You can also just add a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream yourself to make sure you only get 1 tablespoon in there.

Of course, the best most keto friendly thing to order is black coffee or tea. But if that’s kind of boring to you, don’t forget about the sugar-free options! The sugar-free syrups are your friends because 0 carbs and 0 calories. Starbucks has SF cinnamon dolce and sugar free vanilla. There’s also skinny mocha sauce which is has 1 gram of carbs and 5 calories per pump. And for all you pumpkin spice lovers out there (I mean me!), the pumpkin sauce has 5 grams of carbs and 33 calories, which isn’t the greatest, but if you watch all your other carbs for the day, you can do it.

Happy fall coffee-ing!
pumpkin spice forever and always,
