In this article I will cover the lowest calorie drinks (and highest calorie drinks) at Dutch Bros. I'll also give you some tips on how to order from Dutch Bros if you're trying to watch your calorie intake.
What is considered a low calorie drink at Dutch Bros?
The low calorie drinks at Dutch Bros are generally those containing less than200 calories.
Below I've listed 7 Dutch Bros drinks that are under the 200 calorie threshold that I would choose if you were really trying to watch your calorie intake.
However, some people have more calories to play with. So I also included 5 Dutch Bros drinks that are between 200 and 310 calories.
Tips for ordering low calorie drinks from Dutch Bros
If you're ordering a Dutch Bros drink and want to keep the calories low, try these tips:
- Stick to plain coffee or iced tea
- Order your drink without syrup or sauce
- Swap for sugar-free syrup
- Tire o Chantilly
- Order a 'Skinny Drink'
- Consider a different type of milk
Stick to plain coffee or iced tea
Dutch Bros plain coffees and iced teas are the lowest calorie options, all under 200 calories. That's compared to many other drinks that contain over 500 calories.
By sticking to these drinks, you can keep your calories to a minimum. They might not be the fanciest of Dutch Bros drinks, but they will help you meet your daily calorie goal.
Order your drink without syrup or sauce
While Dutch Bros syrups only average 38 calories per tablespoon, watching your calorie intake all helps. You can save on those extra calories by ordering your drink without the syrup.
Alternatively, you can order your "half sweet" drink (with half the amount of syrup). This helps your drink taste sweet and delicious without the added calories and sugar.
Likewise, some Dutch Bros drinks have sauces (rather than syrup) that contain many more calories (about 130 calories per tablespoon and 15 grams of sugar).
So make sure you know if the drinks contain syrup or sauce as there are caloric differences between them.
Swap for sugar-free syrup
Dutch Bros offers sugar free syrups in a variety of flavors including chocolate, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, macadamia nut, hazelnut, Irish cream, mint (seasonal), coconut, raspberry, peach and strawberry.
So if you want to customize your drinks, go for one of these sugar-free flavors.
Tire o Chantilly
Sour cream contains about 45 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per tablespoon.
Many Dutch Bros drinks contain at least a dollop of whipped cream. Removing the whipped cream from your drink can save you at least 45 to 90 calories.
Order a "thin drink"
There are a few different drinks on the Dutch Bros menu that can be made sugar-free (or "low-fat"). Sugar-free drinks don't necessarily have to be lower in calories, but choosing one of these options can help reduce your overall sugar intake.
The drinks offered in the 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, a cup of whole milk contains 148 calories, compared to 131 calories in soy milk and 40 calories in a cup of almond and coconut milk. You can save up to 108 calories per cupChoose an alternative milk option.
My advice, swap out your whole milk for almond or coconut milk.
