11 Low-Calorie Iced Starbucks Drinks Perfect for Summer

They're all 100 calories or less.

Low-calorie Starbucks drinks—iced ones, specifically—are everything we need for summer refreshment with a boost of caffeine. We look forward to them every year as the weather heats up and we head to the beach, the pool, or on vacation. Of course, we also like a Starbucks drink when we're working, socializing, or hanging out at home. We admit it—we're Starbucks fanatics!

Although there are plenty of indulgences available, especially on the secret menu, quite a few beverages are lower in calories to help you enjoy a guilt-free treat.

There are several java drinks on this list, but for those who prefer other caffeinated beverages, there's a variety of low-calorie teas. (And no, not just your basic English breakfast. Some of them are infused with delicious flavorings such as blackberry and lemonade.) These tasty beverages will give you a boost, no matter your taste preferences.

Iced Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

Tall: 70 Calories

Grande: 90 Calories

Refreshers, low-calorie Starbucks drinks—iced to perfection, of course—are all about pairing fruit juice with tea to make a delicious mix. This beverage combines a mango and dragonfruit blend with white grape juice and pieces of real dragonfruit for a slightly tangy, sweet drink.

Vanilla Sweet Cream Nitro Cold Brew

Tall: 70 Calories

Starbucks' Vanilla Sweet Cream Nitro Cold Brew might convince everyone to switch to black coffee. It's simply Starbucks' cold brew that's infused with nitrogen to give a smooth, velvety finish from the first sip to the last drop. Although delicious (and just 5 calories for a grande) on its own, the dash of sweet cream turns it into a low-sugar sweet treat.

Iced Golden Ginger Drink

Tall: 100 Calories

This slightly spicy low-calorie Starbucks drink, iced and cold, starts with a blend of ginger and turmeric essence combined with flavors of pineapple and coconut. The default combination includes 3 pumps of pineapple ginger syrup and two scoops of the ginger blend. If the zesty ginger flavor is too strong for you, ask for fewer pumps.

Doubleshot on Ice

Tall: 80 Calories

If you need an extra boost, give this low-calorie Starbucks drink, iced and ready for summer, a try. It contains just three ingredients: espresso, classic syrup (the company's version of simple syrup), and a splash of 2% milk. Feel free to change the type of milk and flavorings to your liking.

Very Berry Hibiscus Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage

Tall: 90 Calories

The Starbucks Refreshers is a popular low-calorie Starbucks drink, iced and chilled for summer. Refreshers come in a variety of bright, delicious flavors. This one is made from a tasty blend of natural fruit juice, whole blackberries, green coffee extract, and lemonade. Order the Berry Refresher with water instead of lemonade for a fruity boost of caffeine with less added sugar to cut down on the calories.

Iced Guava White Tea Lemonade

Tall: 100 Calories

This drink is a light, fruity mix you'll gulp down in seconds. It's a mixture of tea and fruit juice, shaken with a splash of lemonade and a hint of sweetness. It comes in at just 100 calories if you order it as-is, but we tried the fruit juice-infused tea without the added sweetener, and it was delicious (with fewer calories!).

Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher

Tall: 80 Calories

Grande: 90 Calories

Sip on a sweet strawberry refresher accented with the flavors of passion fruit, acai, and real strawberry pieces. Green coffee extract in the drink gives you a bold boost of caffeine.

Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade

Tall: 60 Calories

Peach tea is a must-have when you want a summer drink, and the added lemonade makes it one of our favorite sweet drinks at Starbucks. The drink is hand-shaken and poured over ice.

Iced Caffé Americano

Tall: 10 Calories

Grande: 15 Calories

Venti: 15 Calories

When you (really) need a caffeine boost on summer days, opt for the iced Americano. A grande comes with three espresso shots, but you can add as many extra shots as you want. And with so few calories, there is plenty of room to add a pump or two of your favorite flavor.

Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte

Short: 90 Calories

This latte first hit the Starbucks menu a few years ago and it was an instant hit. The latte is made with real vanilla beans and frothed coconut milk, all topped with Starbucks Blonde Espresso. It has 90 calories in a short, and only 110 calories in a tall.

Nitro Cold Brew with Cascara Cold Foam

Tall: 60 Calories

Grande: 80 Calories

Although once offered to only a few markets, the Nitro Cold Brew is now available in Starbucks everywhere. It's served straight out of the tap and topped with cold foam and a Cascara topping for a hint of sweet brown sugar flavor.
