Starbucks has plenty of decaf options, from coffee to tea and even lemonade. You can choose hot, blended, steamed, iced, and more, according to what mood you’re in or what season it is.
In this guide, we’ll help you decide what your favorite decaf Starbucks drink is by giving you ours. Join us as we talk about the 20 best decaf Starbucks drinks as we see them.
The 20 Best Decaf Starbucks Drinks
1. Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
Just because you’re looking for decaf Starbucks drinks doesn’t mean you should give up all the delicious flavors. That’s where the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate drink comes in. This drink takes hot chocolate to a different stratosphere with its minty taste.
It consists of white chocolate mocha sauce, steamed milk, and peppermint-flavored syrup to give you a decadent drink with no caffeine. The toppings for this rich hot chocolate are whipped cream and dark chocolate curls galore.
Peppermint White Chocolate contains 520 calories and 74 grams of sugar. It is the most decadent hot cocoa on our list, but we have a few other decaf options below for those who don’t like peppermint or white chocolate.
2. Skinny Hot Chocolate
If you’re not a white chocolate lover, the Skinny Hot Chocolate might be more your style. This hot cocoa is made from steamed non-fat milk and bittersweet mocha skinny sauce and topped with a layer of foam for a delicious treat.
It contains 170 calories, which is much less than the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate, and it only has 17 grams of sugar. This is different from regular hot cocoa, as it uses foam instead of whipped cream and another type of syrup, meaning fewer calories and less sugar!
If you love sugar, this might not be as sweet as you want it to be, but if you’re more of a bittersweet drinker, you’ll love it.
3. White Hot Chocolate
If you’re a white chocolate lover but want to skip the peppermint, ordering a decaffeinated White-Hot Chocolate might be your cup of tea (or hot chocolate). This is just like a traditional cup of hot chocolate but is white.
This one comprises white chocolate sauce, steamed milk, and a heaping scoop of whipped cream topping. It is a hot drink with 440 calories and 55 grams of sugar, so if you’re watching your weight, you might want to order this delicious drink sparingly.
The most significant difference between this and regular cocoa is the lack of caffeine in the White Hot Chocolate. Few people realize that regular hot chocolate has caffeine, so this is the ideal beverage when looking for decaf, white chocolate, and a delicious flavor.
4. Vanilla Crème Steamer
If you’re looking for a drink made for the fall and winter, the Starbucks’ Vanilla Crème Steamer is a perfect choice, especially if you love vanilla. This hot, steamed drink contains 350 calories and 43 grams of sugar, so a bit on the high side.
If you love vanilla-flavored beverages, need something to warm up, and don’t like coffee, this is the drink for you.
5. Strawberry Funnel Cake Crème Frappuccino
Who doesn’t love a funnel cake? If you do, the Strawberry Funnel Cake Crème Frappuccino will easily conjure up memories of those nights at the county fair in October when you were young, or maybe not so young. This Frappuccino drink contains funnel cake flavored syrup, ice, and milk.
You’ll find strawberry puree throughout the drink and a heaping dose of whipped cream on top. On top of that decadence, it has funnel cake pieces and powdered sugar. This dessert drink has 380 calories and 41 grams of sugar. If you have a sweet tooth, and even if you don’t, this is one you don’t want to miss.
6. Strawberry Crème Frappuccino
Next on our list is the Strawberry Crème Frappuccino. This is a drink that can be enjoyed all year. However, since it’s composed chiefly of strawberries, many people drink it during the scorching hot summer months.
It contains strawberry puree, milk, and ice and has another layer of puree for maximum flavor. Finally, whipped cream is added on top, and you have the perfect summer Frappuccino. This drink contains 370 calories and 51 grams of sugar.
7. White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino
If you love white chocolate, but hot cocoa isn’t your thing, the decaf White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino might be. Similar to a vanilla bean flavor, this is one of Starbucks’ most popular decaf drinks.
This drink combines milk, ice, white chocolate sauce, and a dollop of whipped cream for a divine combination. The Frappuccino blend has 380 calories and 49 grams of sugar per serving.

Lovers of caramel will be standing in line for the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino. It is made with milk, ice, and butter caramel syrup that makes your mouth water even to think about it.

It doesn’t stop there, as you’ll find a crunchy caramel sugar topping on top for a sweet treat you won’t soon forget. This Frappuccino drink has 420 calories and 49 grams of sugar.
9. Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino
If none of the other Frappuccinos on our list are to your taste, you might want to try the Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. It’s made with milk, ice, and a creamy vanilla bean and is simple yet very tasty.
Add a heavy dollop of whipped cream as a topping, and this one is ready to serve. This Frappuccino contains 380 calories and 52 grams of sugar.
10. Pistachio Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage
The Pistachio Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage is one of Starbucks’ seasonal drinks and a complete masterpiece, according to fans of the drink. This one is a little hard to get your hands on and usually makes the rounds around New Years and then is gone.
It features milk, ice, and pistachio, and then it’s topped with whipped cream and a salted butter topping. The calories in this seasonal drink are only 360, with a sugar content of 45 grams.

Steamed Apple Juice contains 220 calories and only 50 grams of sugar, making it one of the healthier options on our list. If you’re tired of chilled apple juice, try a steaming hot mug of Starbucks apple juice instead.

Just the words Mint Majesty conjure up images of sitting on a front porch in a porch swing, sipping your drink while the crickets chirp around you. This herbal tea blend contains zero calories and zero sugar, so it is perfect for someone who is watching their weight or sugar intake.
It is infused with quite a bit of mint and has lemon verbena. So not only is it calorie and sugar-free, but it’s also caffeine-free. If you’re a mint-lover and don’t feel like any of the decaf coffee drinks on our list, this is the ideal beverage.
Lemonade is also a great option on a hot summer day for someone who wants a drink from Starbucks but wants to avoid caffeine. This iced drink has a real lemon kick and only 120 calories and 27 grams of sugar.
