What Is Considered A Low-Calorie Drink At Dutch Bros?
Generally, low calories drinks at Dutch Bros are any that contain fewer than 200 calories.
Below, I’ve included 7 Dutch Bros drinks that fall below this 200 calorie threshold, which I would pick if you’re really trying to watch your calorie intake.
However, some people have more of a calorie budget to play with. So, I’ve also included 5 Dutch Bros drinks that are between 200 and 310 calories.
Tips For Ordering Low-Calorie Drinks At Dutch Bros
When you’re ordering a drink from Dutch Bros and you’re aiming to keep the calories down, try the following tips:
- Stick to Plain Coffees or Iced Teas
- Ask For Your Drink Without Any Syrup or Sauce
- Swap For a Sugar Free Syrup
- Take the Whipping Cream Off
- Order a ‘Skinny Drink’
- Consider a Different Type of Milk
Stick to Plain Coffees or Iced Teas
The plain coffees and iced teas at Dutch Bros are the lowest calorie options, all containing fewer than 200 calories. This is in comparison to many of the other drinks that contain 500+ calories.
By sticking to these drinks, you can keep your calories to a minimum. They may not be the fanciest drinks at Dutch Bros but they will help you to stay within your daily calorie target.
Ask For Your Drink Without Any Syrup or Sauce
Although the syrups at Dutch Bros contain just an average of 38 calories per tablespoon, every little helps when you’re watching your calorie intake. You can save these extra calories by asking for your drink without any syrup.
Alternatively, you can order your drink ‘half sweet’ (with half the amount of syrup). This will help to maintain the delicious, sweet flavor of your drink without the added calories and sugar.
Similarly, some Dutch Bros drinks have sauces (instead of syrups), which contain significantly more calories (approximately 130 calories per tablespoon and 15 grams of sugar).
So, make sure you know whether drinks have syrups or sauces because there is a caloric differences between them.
Swap For A Sugar Free Syrup
Dutch Bros offers sugar-free syrups of a range of flavors, including chocolate, caramel, vanilla, chocolate macadamia nut, hazelnut, irish cream, peppermint (seasonal), coconut, raspberry, peach and strawberry.
So if you want to customize your drinks, opt for one of these sugar-free flavors.
Take the Whipping Cream Off
Whipping cream contains around 45 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per tablespoon.
Many of the Dutch Bros drinks contain at least one tablespoon of whipping cream. Taking the whipping cream off your drink can save you at least 45-90 calories.
Order A “Skinny Drink”
There are a few different drinks on the Dutch Bros menu that can be made sugar-free (or ‘skinny’). The sugar-free drinks might not necessarily have fewer calories, but choosing one of these options can help to lower your total sugar intake.
The drinks that are offered in a sugar-free option are: Kicker, 911, Annihilator, Caramelizer, Cocomo, White Mocha, Double Chocolate Mocha, Double Torture.
Consider A Different Type of Milk
Dutch Bros offers alternative milk options in most of their drinks. They offer soy, almond, and coconut milk, all of which are plant-based and lower in calories than cow’s milk.
More specifically, there are 148 calories in a cup of whole milk, compared to 131 calories in soy milk, and 40 calories each in a cup of almond and coconut milk. Therefore, you can save up to 108 calories per cup by choosing an alternative milk option.
My advice, swap out your whole milk for either almond or coconut milk.
