Dunkin Donuts Keto Coffee – Stay in Ketosis at DD!

If you’re someone who is frequently on the go, or you just like to treat yourself from time to time, then you probably know how difficult it can be to find something to eat or drink when you’re out that won’t completely destroy your keto-diet. In this article we will discuss Dunkin Donuts keto coffee options. 

Personally, I love coffee. I drink tons of it, but when I’m running errands or don’t have time to make myself some coffee, I find myself either at Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts to get my coffee fix.

However, if you’re following keto, then you know that you can’t just order whatever you want from somewhere like Dunkin’ Donuts because it will absolutely wreck your diet and your ketosis.

This article will help guide you through the ordering process of some coffees that you can order and even customize that will help you stay within your diet.

So the first thing to know about ordering drinks at Dunkin’ Donuts is that there are different ways of flavoring your drinks. You can either opt for flavor swirls or flavor shots. “So what’s the difference?” you may ask.

The difference relates to nutritional factors. Flavor swirls are loaded with sugar and are definitely not friendly to those on a keto diet. Flavor shots, however, have no sugar in them because they are completely unsweetened. These are what you’ll want to use in your orders if you’re wanting to stick to a keto-friendly diet.

Flavor swirls are going to be the ones that you think of being the more traditional syrupy flavors such as hazelnut, vanilla, caramel, and mocha. 

The available flavor shots at Dunkin’ Donuts are:

  • French Vanilla
  • Hazelnut
  • Toasted Almond
  • Blueberry
  • Raspberry
  • Coconut

Each shot contains about 1 carb and 0 grams of sugar, so the amount of carbs in your drink is going to be determined by the size of your drink as well as how many shots you may get. Unless you specify a certain number of additional or lesser flavor shots, a small is going to contain 2 shots, a medium will have 3 shots, and a large will have 4 shots.

When you’re ordering your drinks, and you order a hazelnut coffee, they should just give you a shot of that instead of a swirl, but if you’re like me, I’d just rather be safe than sorry so I’ll specifically ask for a shot. It’s just the same idea as when you’re ordering a coffee. There is going to be a default that they go to. If you ask for a coffee, they’re going to likely give you a hot coffee. If you don’t want to chance it, you just ask for hot coffee.

Any cream that you add to your drink is only going to be about 0.5 carbs. So if you get two creams that would be about 1 gram of carbs. However, with Dunkin’ Donuts, it may be 1 gram of carbs in the cream. This number is actually disputed. For the sake of this article, I’m just going to assume that it has 1 gram.

One more bit of advice as well. The way that they sweeten their sugar-free drinks is Splenda. So if that’s something that you want to stay away from, you may want to carry your own sweetener along with you as a substitute. Some liquid stevia would be a good option as a substitute sweetener.

So let’s get on with talking about some of the delicious drinks that you can order from Dunkin’ Donuts that won’t break your keto diet. All of these drinks mention below are going to be around 65 calories with 6 grams of carbs, 1 gram of sugar, and 1 gram of protein. These numbers are for a small drink so if you’re going to be ordering a medium or a large, then you can add just a little more to these numbers, but honestly not a ton. I think any size drink you order of those that we mention would be safe for a keto diet as long as you don’t go nuts.

For hot coffees, you really have endless options to mix and match your drinks, but who really wants to take a chance of ordering a nasty coffee that they can’t even tolerate drinking?

Americano with Cream and Vanilla

One of the best hot coffees you can order is going to be the Americano with double cream and a couple of shots of vanilla flavoring. This is only going to contain between 3-4 carbs and that’s not bad at all for this drink. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how good the flavor it in this. If you want to drop down the carb count, you can either eliminate one of the creams or one of the flavor shots to save a carb each and bring it down to 2 carbs.

Cold Brew Cream and Hazelnut

Next, we move onto some cold drinks. Cold brew coffee is absolutely one of the best ways of drinking coffee. If you’ve not tried it, then I suggest having this drink to give it a go. Order a cold brew coffee with two creams and a shot of Hazelnut and you will not be disappointed. This drink is going to run you around 2-3 grams of carbs. Cold brew is brewed differently as the name suggests and what it does is takes down the acidity of the coffee while still giving you that caffeine kick that you desire.

Iced Coffee with Cream and Toasted Almond

What can I say about this one? It is just absolutely delicious! The toasted almond creamer flavor shot is pure bliss. Once you try this drink, it’s going to be one of your new go-to beverages. Simply ask for a small iced coffee with cream and a shot of toasted almond and you’ll be good to go for only 2-3 carbs and 1 gram of sugar.

There are also Dunkin iced coffee keto options, since the iced coffee itself has no carbs. Simply avoid the flavor swirls and sugar and your keto diet is safe.

I hope that this has made things a little easier now that you know how to order some drinks at Dunkin’ Donuts. If you’re more of a Starbucks person, check out our article with some of the top Starbucks keto-friendly drinks that you can order.
