Starbucks has to be the most popular and well-known coffee and drinks barista chain in the United States, perhaps even in the world.
They serve up a wide range of delicious and sometimes decadent coffees, and teas. But, Starbucks has more than just caffeinated beverages!
With such a wide range of drinks, I couldn’t help but wonder what Starbucks was doing on the health front. Are they joining the detox movement?
Can you find healthy drinks at Starbucks? Well, if you are curious, stick around. As a Starbucks enthusiast, I have uncovered all you need to know!
Does Starbucks Have Healthy Detox Drinks?
Starbucks does indeed sell healthy drinks. While not all of their drinks are healthy, the brand has joined the healthy drink trend we have seen come to be in recent years.
They have had options such as the ‘Green Devotion‘ which is very healthy and is even said by Cosmopolitan to be one of the top drinks to help you cure a hangover!
The Coconut Lime is also a healthy option, as is the green tea! They have so many options and you can enjoy a vast array of them on their menu.
Some of their drinks are customizable as well, so they have the potential to be as healthy or unhealthy as you wish them to be.
Best Detox Drinks At Starbucks
There are so many options for you to choose from. The Green Devotion is one of my favorites. But, let’s take a look at some of the healthiest and most delicious drinks for detoxing from Starbucks!
In this beverage, you will find ginger and turmeric. Turmeric is known for being a great antioxidant, as is ginger.
This drink may not be 100% super healthy, but its detoxing properties come with its powerful antioxidants. Since it also contains pineapple you can guarantee that it reaps extra benefits there too.
It is a cool and creamy beverage and is rated as Cosmopolitan’s No. 1 Starbucks choice for hangover recovery!
This juice is only 180 calories, which is very low for any juice! Evolution is known for its delicious juices, but this one is hardcore since it is packed with superfoods.
It contains spinach and spirulina in the same beverage. This means you get tonnes of vitamins, minerals, and fiber!
If you need a drink that will boost your vitamins and ‘clear you out’, this one is sure to do it!
This drink is hidden away on the Starbucks Secret Menu. Simply request the cool lime refresher, and have it made with coconut milk instead of water.
Coconut milk gives you extra nutrition and more flavor.
That being said, the cool lime refresher alone gives plenty of detoxing properties on its own. It is hydrating and lime is high in vitamin C and antioxidants as stated by medicalnewstoday.com!
Green tea contains 0 calories. However, it is so good for you. The green tea is blended with mint, lemon verbena, and lemongrass.
Lemongrass is rich in antioxidants and works as an antibacterial and antifungal agent too as stated by Webmd.com!
Mint is known to be good for your digestive system, and even able to improve IBS symptoms and indigestion!
Starbucks Weight Loss Drinks
There are several options for weight loss beverages at Starbucks from the Very Berry Hibiscus refresher to Chai Tea Lattes.
If you love Starbucks but want to lose weight, indulging in one of these drinks could be the answer.
Simply remember to avoid sweeteners, avoid any drinks above 100 calories, and enjoy regular coffees such as an Americano!
Here are some top choices!
- Iced Coffee.
- Unsweetened Teavana Shaken Ice Passion Tango Tea.
- Orange mango smoothie (as a snack).
- Brewed Coffee.
- Skinny Vanilla Latte.
- Pineapple Kona Pop Brewed Tea.
- Cappuccino with plant-based milk.
All of these options are great on a weight loss diet. However, the best of all has to be green tea which has 0 calories!
Does Starbucks Have Smoothies?
I have been jealous of Starbucks’ blender for ages, which prompted me to find out whether they sell smoothies, and the answer is, yes Starbucks does sell smoothies!
If you do fancy a smoothie, here is my list of Starbucks’ best smoothies:
- Dragonfruit Smoothie
- Cold Brew Smoothie
- Pineapple Coconut Green Smoothie
- Strawberry Banana Smoothie
If you are wondering whether Starbucks’ smoothies are healthy, they are mostly healthy yes. Some are healthier than others, but the list I provided above is a pretty healthy choice!
What Is The Healthiest Thing To Get At Starbucks
The healthiest drink to get at Starbucks has to be their green tea. It is packed with antioxidants and yet has no calories.
The healthiest food at Starbucks is either their ‘Whole Grain Oatmeal‘ which is packed with nutrients and fiber to get your day started, or their ‘Kale and Farro salad’, which is high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
The optimal order at Starbucks would probably be either a green tea and kale and farro salad, or a delicious brewed coffee with whole-grain oatmeal.
