Well, I’ve got you covered with the exact words you need to say in order to have that amazing keto-friendly Starbucks coffee in your hand without feeling weird. I’ve seen comments where baristas may get a little frustrated with you if you just say “I’ll have the keto version, please.” So I am here to make it easier for both you and the Starbucks barista. Make sure you say please! Bonus points if you write it down for them. Remember when ordering Keto Starbucks drinks, you will most likely have to go with the smallest size available to accurately cut down on carbs.
Down below, I’ve compiled the top 10 Keto Starbucks drinks and the exact wordage down below. I’ve also looked for drink combinations with the lowest carb count so it can be TRULY keto. I consider anything over 5 carbs a deal breaker. If you have a drink that you love and want me to come up with the lingo for you, drop a comment below. I would love to hear from you! Check them out and tell me what you think.

There are many different ways to order, but as long as you are courteous and let your barista know ahead of time about your custom order and special dietary needs, they will usually be very understanding. Remember 1) say please 2) speak slowly and clearly 3) write it down 4) get the smallest size 5) skinny doesn’t mean Keto 6) SAY PLEASE!
