How do I order keto caramel macchiato at Starbucks in-store?
Traditionally, the Starbucks caramel macchiato is prepared with 2% milk, brewed espresso, caramel sauce and vanilla syrup. However, to order a keto caramel macchiato at Starbucks, ask the barista to replace the 2% milk with almond, coconut or soy milk (all these are keto-approved). Then, request them to use the sugar-free vanilla syrup instead of the regular one and ask them to only use a touch of caramel drizzle or opt out of the caramel drizzle altogether. After making these specifications, let the barista know your beverage size – the sizes available are; short, tall, grande and venti. Additionally, tell them the number of Signature espresso roast shots you’d like in your caramel macchiato.
