For those who are trying out the ketogenic diet (keto) but still love, need or simply crave a Starbucks fix, we’ve found the perfect drink for you!  

Ordering out on the keto diet can be a challenge. Finding items that are low-carb and sugar free is no easy feat. Hitting up your local Starbucks can be overwhelming… there are so many options and if you aren’t accustomed to the menu, it can seem a bit complicated.

But don’t fret, the white drink is a ‘secret menu’ item that will satisfy your Starbucks craving without the carbs and sugar.

For those who are unfamiliar with the keto diet, it involves reducing the amount of carbs you eat but increasing your fat intake. The goal is to go into a state of ketosis, which is said to help with fat loss as your body will begin to burn stored fat.

So, what exactly is this mysterious white drink that keto lovers are raving about? The Peach Citrus White Tea drink, also known as the keto white drink, is actually peach flavoured tea with heavy cream. People describe the taste similar to peach cobbler – which is a nice treat for keto dieters as their sugar intake is restricted.

To order this keto friendly drink, ask your barista for the following:

  • Unsweetened Peach Citrus White Tea
  • A splash of heavy cream
  • 2-4 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup
  • No water
  • light ice

The keto white drink is sugar and carb free – which is why it’s keto friendly. If you’re feeling ‘extra’ that day, you can ask for your drink to be blended for a frothier version.

The keto options don’t stop there either! Next time you’re at Starbucks, you can mix and match any kind of sugar-free tea with sugar-free flavouring to make a variety of drinks to your liking!
