Pinterest is a liar!

I left an early morning meeting yesterday and swung by Starbucks.  I looked up Keto Starbucks drinks, and opted for a Breve.  When I got back to the office an loaded it in Carb Manager - 16 grams!!  What??  That's not keto friendly!  I love some of the keto recipes I've found on Pinterest, but you really can't trust them all!

  • Unless it's sugar free, I don't imagine any of Starbucks fancy named beverages are keto friendly.  Even sugar free may bring in a bunch of carbs from milk sugar.  I normally pick up a tea at the airport Starbucks when travelling, but skipped it this trip because half and half would eat up too many of my carbs, which I try to reserve for veggies.

  • I didn't get any added sugar, no flavors or anything.  A breve is just a latte that uses half and half instead of milk.  So lower sugars, but I was blown away by how much sugar just from the half and half. 

    Lesson learned.

    I bring my own whipping cream to add when I get a starbucks lol but recently have really tried to be mindful, and started prepping coffee at home. :)

  • Keelo Starbucks has Heavy Whipping Cream, you just have to ask for it.

  • Felice Fish Raucci Do they charge extra?  I get regular hot tea at Starbucks, not the fancy drinks, even before I started keto.  If I can get a couple tbsps HWC for tea as a regular condiment without a big upcharge I'll go back to getting teas there.

  • Moondrake Nope, I go to 3 different Starbucks (not TOO often) but none have charged me any extra for the HWC.

  • I have also noticed that in the starbucks app. Changing the ingrediants wont change the nutritional facts. Hopefully thats it bc i order breve cappucinos all the time!

  • Sometimes the app can be wrong. I’ve had to update public entries because they reflect incorrect info.
