21 Sugar-Free Starbucks Drinks

Starbucks has been well known for many years for being one of the most versatile coffeehouses around today, and what we mean by this is that they offer such a wide range of drinks available on their menu, all with their own unique ingredients and additions.

21 Sugar-Free Starbucks Drinks

However, while it’s hard to find a drink on the extensive menu that isn’t going to delight your taste buds, it can also be tricky ordering a drink that doesn’t contain any sugar since a lot of Starbucks beverages will contain syrups, sweeteners, and extra sugary additions. 

The good news is, you won’t have to stop visiting Starbucks entirely if you’re trying to cut down on your sugar intake, as there are still plenty of drinks that taste just as delicious but that also leave out all the sugar to help make them a little more nutritious.

So that you know exactly what to order, here are 21 of the best sugar-free drinks Starbucks currently offers for you to choose from.

1. Peach Tranquility Tea

Calories:0  Caffeine: 0mg

This hot-brewed caffeine-free tea tastes as refreshing and delicious as it sounds, containing a delightful mixture of flavors including pineapple, lemon verbena, rose hips, and of course, light and airy peaches.

You won’t find a hint of sugar in this tranquility tea, making it ideal to sip on when the temperatures start to rise during the spring and summer and you want something that isn’t too fizzy or sweet in its taste

2. Iced Espresso

Calories: 10 Caffeine: 75mg 

Classy, tasty, and perfect for when you want a cool and robust beverage to wake you up in the morning, this signature roast has been a fan favorite among Starbucks lovers for many years, and a lot of this has to do with the rather intense flavor.

When you want something more potent and noticeable than an iced coffee, take the next step up and treat yourself to a delightful iced espresso instead.

3. Cold Brew

Cold Brew

Calories: 5 Caffeine: 205 mg

Another classic Starbucks drink, the Cold Brew is made from a mixture of different beans and then slow-steeped for over 20 hours until it comes out with a silky smooth texture and a taste that is a lot less acidic than an espresso.

Therefore, the Cold Brew is a nice alternative if you want something a little more manageable which also packs a lot of sweetness into its flavor to keep you energized for the day ahead.

4. Jade Citrus Mint Tea

Calories: 0 Caffeine: 40mg

If you’re looking for a drink that’s a little fruitier and more uplifting than your average brew, the Jade Citrus Mint Tea gives off a wonderful lemongrass and spearmint aroma that manages to taste incredibly sweet without containing any trace of sugar.

This custom tea is guaranteed to have you feeling chilled and relaxed, even when the summer heat feels like it can’t get any warmer.

5. Earl Grey Tea

Calories: 0 Caffeine: 40mg

The bergamot oil used to make Earl Grey Tea is what has made it so popular among lovers of lemon and citron tea flavors for so many years, but no one crafts it quite as well as Starbucks.

The touch of soft lavender helps to counteract the strength of this beloved black tea while also leaving behind a slightly bitter aftertaste that allows the nutritious flavor of this drink to stay in the mouth for just a little longer.

6. Caffè Americano

Calories: 15  Caffeine: 225mg

When you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and you’re struggling to muster up the energy needed to seize the day, a Caffè Americano is just what you need.

The Caffè Americano manages to strike the perfect balance between tasting sour and sweet at the same time without either one overpowering the other, and since it’s loaded with caffeine, there aren’t many other drinks that are a better pairing with a hearty breakfast.

7. Galvanina Sparkling Mineral Water

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0mg

Starbucks can seemingly make any type of drink, no matter how bland it might seem on the surface, taste so much more enjoyable and delicious, and there’s no better example of this than with their Galvanina Sparkling Water.

This mineral water is sourced from three springs located in Galvannia, San Giuliano, and Val di Meti, and you can taste the natural crispness as soon as you take that first sip, making it a necessity for when you’re planning to go on a hike or do some exercise throughout the day.

8. Nitro Cold Brew

Calories: 5  Caffeine: 63mg

What makes the Nitro Cold Brew different from the standard Starbucks Cold Brew is that it is infused with nitrogen which helps to keep the texture and overall flavor as smooth and creamy as possible.

You also have the option to add a dose of sugar-free syrup, just in case you want to make this mouthwatering brew even softer to sip on.

9. Emperor’s Clouds & Mist

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 1mg

The Emperor’s Clouds & Mist Tea is packed full of antioxidants and is extremely rich in L-Theanine, making it one of the healthiest drinks on the Starbucks menu, but this doesn’t mean that anything is taken away from the flavor itself.

You can still expect to get a very light and toasty-sweet scent from this green tea, making it ideal for when you want to try and reduce stress levels and symptoms of anxiety.

10. Mint Majesty

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0mg

Despite containing absolutely no calories, carbs, caffeine, or sugar, the magical Mint Majesty still manages to have an incredibly appetizing and refreshing flavor thanks to the inclusion of peppermint leaves which are just so uplifting in their taste.

The lack of calories and sugar also means this is an incredibly healthy drink that is great to incorporate into a healthy and nutritional daily diet. 

11. Ethos Water

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0mg

For every bottle of Ethos Water that you buy, Starbucks donates 5 cents (10 cents in Canada) to the Ethos Water Fund which is a humanitarian group with close relations to the coffee-making community.

Alongside just how fresh and tranquil this spring water tastes, this is another reason why picking up a bottle is never a bad idea, especially since they tend to be incredibly cheap to buy from the store.

12. Royal English Breakfast Tea

Royal English Breakfast Tea

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 40mg

This classic and traditional tea blend is mixed with high-grown full leaves to grant it a very light herby taste that becomes so addictive once you take that first gulp, and since it also contains a little bit of caffeine, it also comes with a hint of bitterness to enjoy too.

As the name suggests, this tea is primarily designed to be enjoyed alongside a big and fulfilling breakfast where the herbaceous flavor can cut through the bigger and bulkier ingredients so that they are easy to digest.

13. Iced Passion Tango Tea

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0mg

As the only iced tea at Starbucks that doesn’t contain any caffeine to speak of, the Iced Passion Tango Tea instead relies on a delightful blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, apples, and a handful of ice to make it as refreshing and sweet as it can be.

When ordering this drink, make sure not to accidentally choose the option that features lemonade since this will automatically add 11 grams of sugar to the serving.

14. Espresso Con Panna

Calories: 35  Caffeine: 150mg

When you’re trying to cut out as much sugar from your diet as possible, it can be easy to try and steer away from the Espresso Con Panna once you see the small dose of vanilla syrup in the middle, but the truth is there is so little of it, that the drink still contains 0 sugar.

The cream actually helps to balance out the bitterness of the coffee, crafting a drink that could easily double as a dessert with how sweet and delicious it is.

15. Mint Herbal Blend Tea

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0

A hot brewed tea that is packed full of minty and herbaceous flavor, this is a drink you’re not going to want to pass up on when the weather is getting chillier and you want a warm, comforting brew to warm you up.

While the spearmint and lemon verbena mixture is already appetizing enough, the addition of peppermint simply makes this tea irresistible on those colder days.

16. Iced Green Tea

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 1mg

The Iced Green Tea from Starbucks has always been seen as a healthy beverage option, containing plenty of antioxidants alongside having no sugar or carbs and only a tiny bit of caffeine to give it that extra kick in regards to its flavor.

Of course, what stands out the most, and what separates it from many other iced teas on the Starbucks menu, is just how poignant the minty and lemony taste is, creating an explosion of flavor in the mouth with each sip taken.

17. Iced Black Tea

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 25mg

If you order this smooth, sweet, and downright delicious iced tea from the menu, make sure that you ask for it to be unsweetened so that it doesn’t contain any of the Classic Syrup which can add on extra calories and sugar.

This tea is known for being very astringent and bitter, but since it’s iced, you also get an element of sweetness thrown into the mix, with all of it coming together to create one of Starbucks’ most popular drinks.

18. Chai Tea

Calories: 240  Caffeine: 95mg

Black pepper, ginger, star anise, and honey are just a few of the ingredients blended together to create Starbucks’ renowned Chai Tea which is bold and distinctive in its flavor, providing the perfect balance between being sweet and spicy.

19. Hawaii Volcanic Water

Calories: 0  Caffeine: 0mg

The natural alkaline water found in each bottle of Hawaii Volcanic Water is packed full of electrolytes and transformative minerals which is perfect for when you have a long day ahead of you and need that extra boost to keep you going.

You can usually find a few ice-cold bottles of this drink tucked away in the grab-n-go fridge as soon as you enter the store, so be sure to pick it up if you’re in the mood for a healthy and nutritious pick-me-up in the morning.

20. Espresso Macchiato

Calories: 15  Caffeine: 150mg

The Espresso Macchiato is a Euro-style beverage that has a much creamier body compared to many other espresso drinks due to the tiny amount of steamed milk that rests at the center which also helps to give it a very delicate sweetness.

It is also known for having a relatively strong coffee flavor that can linger in the mouth for a while after you drink it, so it’s probably best to pair it up with a small snack or a light meal so that it never becomes too overbearing.

21. Sugar-Free Frappuccino

Sugar-Free Frappuccino

Calories: 300  Caffeine: 90mg

Now admittedly, this is a drink that you will need to ask for specifically, but considering that you have the opportunity to taste a Frappuccino in all its glory, without any sugar included, it’s well worth doing.

Simply ask for an iced coffee with a little extra ice and a few pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup to really ramp up the flavor, and you’ll be able to easily replicate that caramel-like Frappuccino flavor while still keeping the drink healthy and nutritious.


Luckily, despite a lot of their drinks incorporating ingredients that can pack them full of sugar, Starbucks still offers some delicious and incredibly refreshing drinks that taste just as good, if not better, than the majority of menu options that do mix in some sugar.
