What Are Some Healthy Drink Options at Dunkin’?
If you want to enjoy Dunkin’ but are trying to keep things healthier, you may be wondering what you can drink when you stop at Dunkin’.
- Americano – Hot water and espresso blend together for a strong, cozy drink that is low calorie.
- Breakfast black tea – Calorie-free if served as-is, black breakfast tea is full of antioxidants, making it a healthy option.
- Hot cappuccino – Order with skim milk to cut the fat, and skip flavorful, sugary syrups and you’re good to go!
- Dunkaccino – Modify your favorite drink by asking them to serve yours with half Dunkaccino and half plain black coffee.
- Black cold brew coffee – Served black, this cold brew is a safe bet.
- Cold brew coffee with milk – If you want to cut your cold brew’s acidity but don’t want to add a lot of fluff, a small amount of skim milk or almond milk will make it creamier without adding too many calories.
- Hot black dark roast coffee – A deep, rich flavor that will give you moderate levels of caffeine.
- Berry hibiscus iced tea – Unsweetened, this is a healthy option that has some great flavor profiles and is rich in antioxidants.
- Hot black coffee – Just a plain, black coffee will hit the spot this winter without giving you guilt.
- Hot coffee with milk – Skim or almond milk will keep calories to a minimum.
- Iced dark roast coffee – Prepared the same as you would a hot dark roast coffee, the iced version of this will boast the same no-calorie benefit only cooler.
- Hot black espresso – Looking for a pick me up that won’t bring you down on your diet goals? Keeping your espresso black will fit the bill.
- Hot latte with milk – Opt out of sweetener but keep the creamy deliciousness you love with a skim milk hot latte.
- Black iced Americano – Fresh espresso takes the place of black coffee in this iced drink that will wake you up!
- Iced cappuccino with milk – Enjoy an icy cold cappuccino made with skim milk.
- Harmony Leaf green tea – While earthy and slightly-bitter, this tea is known for its many health benefits, which are only made better when the tea is served as-is.
- Black iced coffee with or without milk – This is a great introduction to trying coffee without add-ons. If it’s too strong for you initially, the addition of slowly-melting ice will cut the harshness down.
