It’s nutty, lighter on calories, and vegan-friendly - how could I not love almond milk in my Starbucks orders.
I love the combo so much, I’m pretty sure I could be considered an expert in the matter.
However, there are virtually endless possibilities, so I’m going to share my 9 favorite Starbucks almond milk drinks I can’t go without!
I’ll even throw in a few tips on how to best order them, and some tasty modifications to try!
Top 9 Starbucks Almond Milk Drinks
In this overview, I have 9 of the best Starbucks almond milk drinks to try.
This alternative milk makes everything from macchiatos to Frappuccinos taste more interesting, with a nutty flavor I find only amplifies already-delicious drinks.
1. Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato
The Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato is cozy, and tastes like that feeling of setting up the Christmas tree and putting up the lights.
It just tastes ‘festive’, and is perfect both iced and hot (though I much prefer hot).
This Starbucks cinnamon drink is made with an espresso roast along with cinnamon sauce, caramel sauce, creamy almond milk, and sprinkled with some cinnamon dolce topping.
It’s definitely Horchata-inspired, and contains around 200 calories in a grande size.
2. Honey Almond Milk Nitro Cold Brew
I’ve always been a fan of Nitro Cold Brew and liked the idea of adding almond milk, but it never quite turned out right.
That is, until I tasted the Honey Almond Milk Nitro Cold Brew!
This particular drink is made with brewed coffee along with a honey blend that adds just a touch of sweetness.
It offers a jolt of caffeine, but it also has a fantastic creamy texture and the right amount of sweet to cut down any bitterness.
It’s one of my favorite options when I’m really watching my sugar intake, too!
It doesn’t have a lot of calories - the grande size only has 50 calories.
Just bear in mind that Starbucks cold brew is really strong, and there's over 250mg of caffeine in a single serving of the honey almond cold brew.
3. Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew
This one involves regular cold brew, combining honey and creamy almond milk to create a perfectly balanced taste in every sip.
Similar to the nitro cold brew, I like to customize the number of espresso shots and honey shots according to how sweet or strong I want it.
This particular drink is made with ice and brewed coffee along with a honey blend.
It also only has 50 calories in a grande cold brew, but, as the name suggests, it can only be ordered cold.
4. Honey Almond Milk Flat White
This is a smooth, sweet, and simple drink that I find very comforting and easy on the stomach.
It isn’t strong, thanks to the heavy milk content.
This drink is made with Starbucks’s signature Blonde Espresso Roast along with their signature honey blend, and creamy almond milk.
It may be basic, but it has a fantastic balanced flavor and the right amount of nuttiness with a creamy texture.
This drink can only be ordered hot, and contains 120 calories in a grande.
5. Starbucks Almond Milk Caffe Misto
A great drink served at Starbucks that is not commonly known by most is the Almond Milk Caffe Misto.
It’s a blend of coffee that has been freshly brewed along with steamed almond milk (in a 1:1 ratio).
Due to the higher milk content, it’s very silky and smooth, rather than sharp and bitter.
While this Starbucks hot drink can’t be ordered iced, it’s the perfect plant based milk alternative to the classic flat white, and great for white coffee lovers like me.
In terms of calories, this drink has about 110 calories for a grande and is a distinct blend that you can’t go wrong with.
6. Starbucks Almond Milk Mocha Frappuccino
The first time I tried a Starbucks Almond Milk Mocha Frappuccino was when my friend came over to study, and made me try hers.
I instantly fell in love with this Almond Joy-type milkshake, and get it every now-and-then when I want to live on the edge.
It's made with mocha sauce, Frappuccino roast coffee, almond milk, blended with ice.
I get an extra shot of espresso and extra pump of mocha sauce with whipped cream on top, but I really like that rich, bold flavor.
In terms of the calories, this drink is about 370 calories in one cup.
7. Starbucks Hazelnut Latte with Almond Milk
The Starbucks Hazelnut Latte with Almond Milk is simple in ingredients yet complex and smooth in flavor.
The almond milk and hazelnut works together perfectly and creates this nutty flavor that's absolutely irresistible.
It's typically made with two shots of Blonde Espresso followed by three pumps of hazelnut syrup.
Whether hot or cold, I absolutely love the Blonde Espresso and almond milk combo!
It’s about 190 calories for a grande, and you can customize the toppings according to your preferences.
8. Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte
When the holidays come around, I put on my coat and head on over to Starbucks for their Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte!
The seasonal drink is made with sugar cookie flavored syrup, Blonde Espresso, and steamed almond milk.
This drink is best hot and topped with red and green sprinkles for that festive touch.
It’s essentially Christmas in a coffee cup, and as I’m a huge holiday lover, so it instantly boosts my mood.
Calories wise, it's 180 calories for a grande, and is the perfect drink if you’re looking to have a creamy almond sugar cookie in liquid form.
9. Iced Chocolate Almond Milk Shaken Espresso
I literally ordered the Iced Chocolate Almond Milk Shaken Espresso the other day, but it instantly jumped up to the top of my list!
Starbucks Blonde Espresso meets cocoa and notes of malt, shaken together with almond milk, and served over ice.
I can’t get enough of the balanced milky, nutty, chocolatey taste with the robust espresso flavor to round it out.
Even on colder days, I still find myself ordering this one just because it tastes so decadent and sophisticated!
The best part of these almond milk drinks is that they only have about 110 calories in a grande, so they're a healthier option for those with a sweet tooth (ahem, me).
