Making changes in the keto diet includes even your drinks. If you are a caffeine addict you can enjoy your coffee as long as it is keto-friendly. In this case, Starbucks can be your best friend or your greatest enemy.
An average cup of frappuccino coffee contains more than 20 grams of carbs. 2 pumps of vanilla sugar and some foamed milk boost it to 49 grams, but your daily allowance of carbs is only 20 grams. See the impact?
On the other hand, many drinks are keto-friendly, like coffee and tea. The carbs are in the added substances. Therefore, we can make some changes to any drink on the Starbucks menu.
Here are 14 drinks that you can enjoy on keto diet:
