Starbucks Healthiest Drinks UK (Updated May 2019)

Lowest Calorie Starbucks Drinks

If you want pretty much zero calorie Starbucks drinks, black coffee is the way to go. Order an espresso, americano, filter coffee or cold brew.

Most Starbucks locations also now carry milk alternatives; oat milk, almond milk and soy milk. If you normally order semi-skimmed or whole milk, try almond milk. A tall cappucino with almond milk is 67kcal, compared to 129kcal when made with the standard semi-skimmed milk.

Without milk, all Teavana hot teas contain zero calories.

For a low calorie cold drink, cold brew coffee or classic iced tea are both zero calorie options. The iced tea comes in black, green or hibiscus varieties.

Lowest Calorie Starbucks Frappucino

The coffee light frappucino base has the lowest calorie and sugar count. A grande espresso frappucino with coffee light base comes in at 111kcal when made with skimmed milk, containing 22.4g sugar, add some sugar free caramel syrup for a low calorie alternative to the standard caramel frappucino with 358kcal and 56g sugar!

Sugar Free Starbucks Frappucino

All frappucino bases at Starbucks contain sugar, this is because they are not made with coffee but with a Frappucino base syrup.

You can opt for the lower calorie light Frappucino blend, but the basic ingredients are still water, sugar syrup, thickeners, sweetners and flavourings.

For a sugar free, keto Frappucino alternative you can try our take on the vanilla sweet cream cold brew; just order a cold brew with pouring cream and sugar free vanilla syrup for an indulgent coffee, creamy and sweet treat. Alternatively swap out the creamĀ  for another dairy if you want a lower calorie version.
