Low Carb Pink Drinks from Starbucks

Summertime is in full swing and there’s nothing better than cooling down with a refreshing beverage from your favorite coffee shop. With many popular options showing up for the summer, it’s easy to indulge in more sugar than you’re expecting. I’ve decided to come up with some low carb swaps for Starbucks’ popular Pink Drink, Purple Drink, and Dragon Drink to make them easier on the blood sugars and more enjoyable for a summer in the sun.

Just to note: I normally disclose with my barista that I am a diabetic and that this swap has lower sugar. I find that they are much more willing to accommodate weird orders when they know it’s for a health reason.

Low Carb Pink Drink

⁃ grande iced unsweetened passion tea

⁃ no water

⁃ coconut milk

⁃ strawberries

⁃ 3 pumps of sf vanilla

Low Carb Purple Drink

⁃ grande iced unsweetened white tea

⁃ no water

⁃ coconut milk

⁃ black berries

⁃ 3 pumps of sf vanilla

Low Carb Hot Pink Drink

⁃ grande iced unsweetened black tea

⁃ no water

⁃ coconut milk

⁃ dragon fruit scoop

⁃ 3 pumps of sf vanilla

If you don’t eat the berries and order a grande, these drinks are estimated to be around ~5-7g of carbohydrates from the coconut milk and dissolving berries. You know your body best! See how this drink works for you and correct accordingly!
