13 Keto Dunkin Donuts Drink Orders, According To A Nutritionist

So you’ve chosen the keto diet, a nutritional plan that limits your intake of carbohydrates and increases your intake of fats and proteins. You may have been ready to make some lifestyle changes in terms of eating, but what if you need, for example, a keto-friendly dunkin donuts drink order in transit? If you’re following the keto diet properly, you will likely need to tweak your classic dunkin ‘order.

But don’t worry – there are plenty of items on Dunkin Donuts’ menu that are completely keto-friendly – and it’s more than just plain black coffee (though that’s your order, no hate!) So just make sure that Their coffee is keto, according to nutritionists Keri Gans, RDN, author of The Small Change Diet, and Vandana Sheth, RDN, author of My Indian Table: Quick & Tasty Vegetarian Recipes.

So you can order your Dunkin Donuts keto-friendly

  1. Keep it simple TThe key here is to keep it simple when you order, says Gans. “You have to stick to the basic drinks and forget the fancy drinks with a lot of sugar,” says Gans.
  2. Use milk alternatives. If you don’t like your coffee or tea black, try adding keto-friendly, low-carb, unsweetened options like coconut and almond milk to your order. These don’t contain lactose (a form of sugar) like regular milk, which makes reaching your daily carb intake goals (if you focus on them!) A lot easier.
  3. Add flavor shots. Flavor shots are usually sugar-free and unsweetened, says Sheth. There are at least five to six varieties on the menu that are flavorless and have between five and 20 calories per serving, explains Sheth. “Make sure you ask for flavor shots rather than flavor swirls (think of: caramel drizzle) as these contain sugar,” says Sheth.
  4. Include a sugar substitute. If you absolutely need sweetness in your coffee beverage (right away), consider adding a packet or two of Splenda to your order, says Gans. It’s the best option for softening the bitterness of the coffee while staying low in carbohydrates and sugar.

    Now that you know what changes will make your drink keto-friendly, let’s give you actual ordering information. Read on to find the absolute best keto-friendly orders from Dunkin Donuts, according to nutritionists.
