Finding a low-carb drink is now easier than ever – even in coffee shops like Dutch Bros. If you have been living with diabetes for a while, you are aware of the easy way to make a low carb, low-sugar coffee drink – simply whip it up at home. But what about days when you just want a cup of coffee from your favorite drive-thru? Fortunately, there are ways to enjoy a diabetes-friendly drink at chains like Dutch Bros Coffee.

When thinking of Dutch Bros, the first thing that springs to mind is their sweet and high-energy drinks. Even finding something slightly low-carb amid their outlandish beverages feels weird. Luckily, they appeal to both sides of the carbohydrate spectrum. In fact, they recently added a number of low-carb beverages to their menu.

The Dutch Bros low-carb drinks are not just black coffee. You enjoy a wide range of flavors, including mixed beverages with add-ons such as sugar-free syrups. Here are several low-carb drinks from Dutch Bros that can satisfy your taste buds without making you go over your recommended sugar and carbs intake.


Americano

The Americano is a popular beverage for people who live with diabetes. It has 0 carbohydrates and is made with espresso and hot water and can be served hot or chilled. You can complement your coffee with heavy cream or half & half to add richness and flavor. You can also flavor it with any of Dutch Bros' sugar-free syrups if you want.


Cold Brew

Because cold brew is prepared from coffee grounds and water, it has no carbohydrates on its own. You can add sugar-free flavors to the Cold Brew in the same way that you can to the Americano. Sugar-free White Mocha is a popular combination.


Nitro Cold Brew

The Nitro Cold Brew in the original flavor is a low-carb beverage as well. The other kinds, on the other hand, contain flavorings that are not suitable for people with diabetes. Request that your barista swap the regular flavors to the sugar-free alternative. The nitro cold brew will contain fewer than 10 grams of carbohydrates if you do that.


Blue Rebel

Blue Rebel is an energy drink that is only offered at Dutch Bros locations. When it comes to flavor, the original comes close to Red Bull. However, there are other flavors available, such as the sugar-free Peach Rebel. The sugar-free variants are low-carb, although they are high in caffeine. The good news is that there are just 2 grams of total carbs in a single serving of Blue Rebel.

Breve

At Dutch Bros, a normal Breve is created with Kick Me Mix and espresso. The Kick Me Mix is basically a half-and-half mixture. You may also spice things up with some of their sugar-free syrups. A single serving has 14 grams of carbs.


Carburetor-Style Drink

At Dutch Bros, a Carburetor-style drink is a blended frozen drink made by replacing some of the ingredients such as Freeze mix. Because the Freeze mix contains sugar and dairy, it’s not a good choice for people who live with diabetes. Instead, request a sugar-free fruit flavor with your sugar-free Rebel carburetor style from your broista.


Teas

When consumed on its own, Paris tea or green tea are diabetes-friendly. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add Truvia or Splenda for sweetness while keeping the carb count low. The Dutch Bros Chai, however, is not diabetes-friendly. It comprises a premix made of milk and sugar, which brings the drink to 37.4 grams carbs.


Dutch Classics

All Dutch Bros classics can be turned sugar-free by using their sugar-free syrups. A sugar-free Caramelizer, for instance, is produced using sugar-free chocolate sauce and caramel. On the other hand, the classics still contain carbs, the majority of which come from milk. A single sugar-free classic drink can contain up to 10 grams of carbohydrates.


What drinks should you avoid at Dutch Bros Coffee if you have diabetes?

The Dutch Frosts are essentially an ice cream shake with a calorie count of around 120. Sugar and milk provide the majority of the calories, as you might expect. As a result, they are heavy in carbs, exceeding your daily limit. Sugar-free versions of some Dutch Bros Rebels and sodas are available. Sugar-free fruit flavors like coconut, raspberry, and strawberry are available. The Blue and Peach Rebel, in fact, is already sugar-free.

However, this is not always the case with more complex flavors, as not all syrups provide a sugar-free option. The pomegranate syrup used in the popular OG Gummy Bear, Shark Attack, and Palm Beach is one of them.

Bottom line

The number of low carb alternatives available at Dutch Bros, a brand famed for its sugary delight, may surprise you. You can drink a basic black coffee, such as cold brew, Americano, or nitro, if you want. If you are not sure if a drink is low-carb, always ask the broista. The menu varies frequently, so it's important to do your homework before visiting Dutch Bros Coffee.
