Are you trying to do keto or stay low carb, but also keep the coffee flowing? I feel you! While I’m no longer doing keto strictly, I am eating high protein/low carb (the quarantine 15 is real!) and I’ve been making adjustments to my favorite iced coffees to keep carbs down.
So, let’s talk about how you can stay on keto or keto friendly and still get your Dutch Bros coffee!
Keto Drinks at Dutch Bros:
Dutch Bros has a huge collection of sugar free syrups to choose from. Pretty much ANY drink that they make can be made sugar free with just a switch of the syrup!
This is great news for if you’re sugar free or trying to stay low sugar.
But, are all sugar-free syrups created equal when it comes to carbs?
Spoiler alert: the answer is no!
What Syrups Are Not Low Carb?
Turns out, there are three syrups that are higher carb than the others when it comes to sugar free syrups at DB.
- Sugar Free White Chocolate – 19g carb per serving
- Sugar Free Chocolate – 15g carb per serving
- Sugar Free Caramel – 19g per serving.
And, a typical coffee has 2 servings per coffee.
Let’s do some quick math! If you ordered a cold brew with sugar free white chocolate and caramel – you’d be getting 38g of carbs for one and 38g of carbs for the other!
Not sure about your low carb target – but 76g of carbs for one coffee is outside my range for just one drink.
The good news? The other syrups are lower in carbs, so you’ll still have plenty of options!
