The 12 Best Non-Caffeinated Drinks at Starbucks 

Best Non-Caffeinated Drinks at Starbucks

When you have four kids, coffee is life. My Nespresso Vertuo is used pretty much daily. But I’ll never pass up a chance to grab a drink from Starbucks while I’m out. It’s convenient and they have so many options to choose from. But as much as I love an iced coffee with milk, even when I’m sipping it as I try to figure out how to overcome mom guilt, sometimes caffeine is the last thing I need.

You might be surprised, like I was, to learn that decaf coffee isn’t entirely caffeine-free. Decaf coffee still contains small amounts of caffeine. A Grande Decaf Roast Decaf Pike Place from Starbucks has 15-25 mg of caffeine. 

So, does avoiding caffeine mean having to skip the Starbucks drive-thru? Of course not! They’re famous for their coffee, but Starbucks also has a wide range of caffeine-free drinks. Today I’m sharing the best non-caffeinated Starbucks drinks to consider ordering the next time you want a tasty drink sans caffeine.

12 Best Non-Caffeinated Drinks at Starbucks

Caffeine-Free Frappuccinos

Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino

When they created the Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino, Starbucks basically came up with a way to make a vanilla milkshake without ice cream. It’s no wonder people of all ages love this drink. It’s loaded with vanilla flavor. If you’re craving an indulgent, crazy delicious cold drink, this is a good one to consider. 

The Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino is made with ice, milk, Crème Frappuccino syrup, whipped cream, vanilla syrup, and vanilla bean powder.

Strawberry Crème Frappuccino

The Strawberry Crème Frappuccino is the fruity version of the Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. It tastes and looks like a strawberry milkshake, but no one would bat an eye if you ordered it first thing in the morning. Although, if you ask me, it’s best enjoyed in the afternoon on a scorching summer day.

Starbucks’ Strawberry Crème Frappuccino is made by blending ice, milk, and strawberry puree, which is poured over strawberry puree and topped with vanilla whipped cream.

Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino

Not to be confused with the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, which does have caffeine, the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino is a caffeine-free, blended treat that tastes like an indulgent sweet dessert. If your sweet tooth won’t let up, consider ordering this one. 

Starbucks’ Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino is made by blending ice, milk, Crème Frappuccino syrup, and caramel sauce. The mixture is topped with a layer of dark caramel sauce, dollops of vanilla whipped cream, and more caramel sauce.

White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino

The White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino is another delicious caffeine-free blended drink to order the next time you swing by Starbucks. It’s an unassuming stark-white drink that is loaded with rich white chocolate flavor. 

Starbucks’ White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino is made by blending milk, ice, and white chocolate sauce that is then topped with whipped cream.

Caffeine-Free Tea At Starbucks

Passion Tango Tea Lemonade

The Iced Passion Tango Tea has been on the Starbucks menu for over two decades because customers just can’t seem to get enough of this caffeine-free herbal drink. A classic Iced Passion Tango Tea is made with passion tango tea, water, and ice, but you can add a sweetener or other ingredients to create colorful treats.

For an especially refreshing version, try the Passion Tango Tea Lemonade. It’s a great caffeine-free alternative to the Starbucks Refreshers. Refreshers are made with green coffee extract, an ingredient that adds 35 mg to 90 mg of caffeine depending on the size you order. 

Mint Majesty 

Mint Majesty is another herbal drink with zero caffeine. Whether you enjoy it hot or iced, this cool and refreshing drink packs a natural, stimulating punch. If you’re feeling a little under the weather, try a Mint Majesty with honey and fresh lemon juice.

Starbucks Mint Majesty herbal tea is made using an infusion of water, spearmint leaves, peppermint leaves, and lemon verbena.

Peach Tranquility

Peach Tranquility is a fruity caffeine-free drink full of tropical flavor with a delightful twist. You can enjoy it hot or cold, both are delicious. 

Peach Tranquility is made using an infusion of water, apple, rose hips, candied pineapple, chamomile flowers, peach, licorice root, lemon verbena, chamomile pollen, and “natural flavor.”

Other Caffeine-Free Drinks At Starbucks

Strawberry Lemonade

The Strawberry Lemonade from Starbucks is a delicious slightly sweet, slightly tart caffeine-free drink. There are two, equally refreshing ways to enjoy it: shaken or blended.

A Blended Strawberry Lemonade is made by blending ice, Starbucks lemonade, and strawberry puree. It’s a tasty frozen drink that tastes especially good on a scorching summer day. The shaken version calls for the same ingredients, but they’re mixed in a cocktail shaker rather than blended. 

White Hot Chocolate

Heads up: the classic hot chocolate from Starbucks is made with dark chocolate mocha sauce giving the drink a small amount of caffeine (25 mg in a Grande). 

Here’s the good news: the White Hot Chocolate, made with white chocolate mocha sauce, doesn’t contain any caffeine. Other ingredients include steamed milk and whipped cream topping. It’s a great option when you’re craving a sweet, hot drink. 

Steamed Apple Juice

There’s just something about a warm apple drink in the cooler months that feels like a hug in a cup. The steamed apple juice is a caffeine-free Starbucks drink that’s loaded with apple flavor. It’s perfectly sweet, slightly tart, and reminds you of those hot apple ciders you get at the farmer’s market. 

Starbucks’ steamed apple juice is made with 100% apple juice (not from concentrate).

Caramel Apple Spice

For an elevated version of the steamed apple juice, order the Caramel Apple Spice. It’s super sweet, so much so that it’s almost too sweet, but it’s undeniably delicious.

The Caramel Apple Spice drink is made with apple juice, cinnamon dolce syrup, and caramel sauce, then topped with vanilla whipped cream.

Cinnamon Dolce Crème

It’s not hard to see why so many people love the Cinnamon Dolce Crème. This caffeine-free drink is creamy, comforting, sweet, and just a little spicy. 

The Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Crème is made with steamed milk and cinnamon dolce syrup, then topped with vanilla whipped cream and cinnamon dolce topping (basically cinnamon sugar).
