Many people have their favorite Starbucks beverages, but sometimes that favorite beverage might be more of a splurge choice. Whether it is a healthy eating resolution or just a desire to cut back on sugar, finding beverages that fit into a particular lifestyle choice can help to keep those resolutions on track.
Although secret menu items and new Starbucks beverages often get people excited, there are many beverages that are 10g of sugar or less. With more people are looking to food to fuel their day and even brighten their mood, Starbucks wants to make those options easier to find.
Since a balanced lifestyle is often a more attainable goal, the idea is to give consumers options along the way. Instead of depriving yourself a special treat, it is possible to enjoy a beverage that fits within a particular set of choices.
Which Starbucks beverages have less sugar?
According to Starbucks, it has shared six different grande sized beverages with 10 grams of sugar or less. Before anyone just says black drip coffee, these beverages are more than just black coffee. The flavor options vary from coffee to tea. In some ways, these options could start a new beverage routine.
Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew
With just 10g of sugar, one of the new beverages to the Starbucks winter menu, this Cold Brew coffee has a touch of sweetness without being a gigantic spoonful of sugar. The combination of almond milk and honey brings that sweetness that some people crave without going too extreme.
The simple combination of fresh-brewed coffee and steamed milk comes in at just 10 grams of sugar. Sometimes simplicity is a beautiful sip.
Jade Citrus Mint Brewed Tea
Often tea is flavorful without any additional flavors. This green tea has flavors of lemon verbena, lemongrass and even a little spearmint. On a brisk winter day, the bright citrus flavors are refreshing. And, there is no sugar in this tea.
Also coming in with no sugar, the classic black tea with warm spices is an enjoyable sip. Even if you generally choose a chai latte, consider slowly reducing the milk to enjoy the simple pleasures of the Chai Tea.
Iced Starbucks Blonde Espresso Americano
Sometimes the crema can mimic those other sugary toppings. With this expresso shot served over ice, the smooth, nuanced coffee flavors need to be appreciated on their own. A zero sugar beverage can be sweet.
Peach Tranquility Tea
Sometimes fruit flavors can bring a sweetness without the sugar. This tea gets its flavors from candied pineapple and peach. It might be the moment of zen that you are craving.
