18 Best Caffeine-Free Starbucks Drinks [With Descriptions]

There is no doubt the Starbucks drinks menu is huge (even without the secret menu options!) and it can be a little overwhelming to choose from.

To help you quickly find the best caffeine free drinks at Starbucks, here are 18 of our favorite non caffeinated beverages at Starbucks.

1. White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

When it comes to Starbucks Hot Chocolate drinks, unfortunately their standard hot chocolate contains caffeine.

This is due to the mocha syrup that is used. While it does taste fantastic, it is not ideal if you are looking for a caffeine-free beverage.

However, their white chocolate drinks are caffeine-free, and the White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino is one of our personal favorites.

A blended drink of ice, milk and white chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream, it is a sweet, creamy caffeine free frappuccino.

While the sweetness of this drink is not for everyone, it is definitely worth trying if you are a white chocolate fan.

You can even customize it by adding a little caramel drizzle to the top to make it taste even better!

2. Mint Majesty

Mint majesty caffeine free herbal tea Starbucks

If you are looking for a no calorie option that is filled with goodness, there is nothing better than the Mint Majesty.

A hot soothing combination of spearmint, peppermint and lemon verbena, it is the most popular caffeine free tea Starbucks offers on their menu.

More interesting than a standard peppermint tea, it has many health benefits, such as helping with digestion. 

This hot herbal tea is the perfect choice for an after dinner drink or on days when your body just doesn’t want a dairy based coffee drink. 

3. Iced Passion Tango Tea

Iced Passion Tango Tea

While this drink has tea in its name, it is a completely caffeine free tea at Starbucks.

This is one of our favorite drinks to consume in the summer months as it is super refreshing and thirst quenching. 

The combination of the hibiscus flowers, cinnamon, apple, lemongrass, and licorice root is really tasty.

The licorice root is not too overpowering, and the flavors complement each other well. The cinnamon makes this iced drink taste warming, and it is super good. 

If you are looking for the best caffeine-free Starbucks drinks, this is a great choice and a favorite of many Starbucks customers.

4. Lemonade

Lemonade

If you are easy to please and enjoy simple cold drinks, then the Starbucks Lemonade is a great option for you.

We looove lemonade, and Starbucks’ take on it is particularly good. It has the perfect balance of both sweet and tart flavors, and the ingredients are minimal.

This is a no fuss drink that is deliciously refreshing, and is perfect for a summer’s day. It is not too high in calories, and it is such an underrated caffeine free Starbucks drink. 

5. Strawberry Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

If you are looking for a non caffeine frappuccino at Starbucks, you need to take care as many frappuccinos on the Starbucks menu do contain caffeine.

While you may assume that they only contain a small amount of caffeine, you might be surprised to learn how much caffeine is in each drink.

However, Starbucks do offer a good range of caffeine free frappuccino options too. This means that you can still enjoy these tasty blended drinks without feeling the buzz afterwards.

Typically, you will want to choose from the Crème Frappuccino options, as many don’t often have caffeine. However, before ordering, you will always want to check out the ingredients list – as most of the chocolate based crème frappuccinos contain caffeine.

The gorgeous Strawberry Crème Frappuccino is one of the most popular choices, and it is easy to see why — it’s delicious!

The balance of the strawberry and the cream is delicious, and we love that Strawberry Purée Sauce is used. The bits of strawberry within the purée is delicious, and adds texture to the drink. 

Perfect for kids and adults alike, the fresh strawberry blended drink and whipped cream topping is just the best way to enjoy a cold drink caffeine free at Starbucks.

6. Steamed Apple Juice

Steamed Apple Juice

During the winter months, we tend to crave warming drinks, and the Steamed Apple Juice is a great option to consider and perfect for when you have the little kids with you.

While it is simple in its flavor, it is a great twist on a classic apple juice. We love this drink, particularly around Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

The recipe is simple, and only contains apple juice that has been steamed. There is no fuss with this drink, but it is a great alternative, if you are looking for hot caffeine free drinks at Starbucks.

If you are purchasing this for a child, we recommend that you ask for it to be cooled slightly before it is served as it is very warm when it has been freshly steamed. 

7. White Hot Chocolate 

White Hot Chocolate

As we have already touched upon, the white hot chocolate is the only warm chocolate drink in Starbucks that does not contain caffeine.

So if you are looking for non caffeinated hot drinks at Starbucks that contain dairy, this is one of the best options for you.

While white hot chocolate drinks are not to everyone’s taste — we love it.

This hot chocolate is created using a white chocolate sauce and steamed milk, which is then topped with whipped cream.

8. Caramel Apple Spice

Caramel Apple Spice

If you enjoy the Steamed Apple Juice, and are looking for something a little more extravagant, you should definitely consider the Caramel Apple Spice.

This is one of the best caffeine free Starbucks holiday drinks around Christmas and Thanksgiving, as the spices included are reminiscent of these holidays.

If you enjoy caramel apples around Halloween, this is a very similar flavor. It is sweet, but the tang of the apples allows the sweetness to be more subdued.

Steamed apple juice is combined with cinnamon dolce syrup and topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

This is the perfect seasonal drink for a winter day, especially if you are looking for a caffeine-free option. 

9. Cinnamon Dolce Crème

Cinnamon Dolce Crème

If you are looking for a caffeine free latte, Starbucks offer the Cinnamon Dolce Crème as a great alternative to a regular latte.

Known as “steamers”, Starbucks have three such drinks on the menu, and the Cinnamon Dolce Creme is one of the most popular.

The drink is made by combining hot steamed milk with cinnamon dolce syrup and topped with vanilla whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon spices.

The cinnamon flavor of the drink is warming, and it is a great non caffeine latte to drink in the Fall and winter months.

10. Vanilla Crème

In a similar vein to the Cinnamon Dolce Crème, the Vanilla Creme is a Steamer and is a great alternative if you are not so fond of cinnamon flavors, but want a hot latte style drink.

The flavor is a lot more subdued, and tastes like a fancy steamed milk with vanilla flavor. The vanilla syrup is not too overpowering and adds a good amount of sweetness to the drink.

Note that whipped cream is optional, and you can also choose to have any milk available steamed.

This is great if you prefer coconut, soy or almond milk.

Perfect for the kids and adults alike, this is one of the simplest caffeine free options at Starbucks.

11. Peach Tranquility

Peach Tranquility

Moving back to the herbal caffeine free tea Starbucks offer on their menu, if you are not fond of mint flavors, and are looking for something more fruity, the Peach Tranquility is a delicious option.

Being a herbal tea, the flavors are not too strong, but you can taste the peach coming through.

In addition to the peach pieces, the tea also contains candied pineapple pieces, rosehip peels, chamomile flowers, lemon verbana and apple pieces.

While you may think that these flavors do not work well together, they really do. They are delicious, and this is a relaxing, caffeine free herbal tea Starbucks have on their menu. 

12. Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

The Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino is one of the newest caffeine free iced drinks at Starbucks.

We love the mixture of the buttery caramel syrup, dark caramel sauce, caramel drizzle, and crunchy caramel sugar topping!

You certainly have to enjoy caramel to like this drink — luckily for us, we do!

The blended caramel, milk and ice topped with whipped cream creates the perfect sweet treat, and it is one we are particularly fond of.

This is a fairly new addition to the Starbucks menu and one we cannot recommend enough. 

13. Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino Blended Beverage

If you are looking for a simple non caffeinated frappuccino, Starbucks have the Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino.

As it does not contain any chocolate, sauces or drizzles, it is lower in its sugar content and calories than other drinks on the menu.

A blend of milk, ice and vanilla bean powder topped with vanilla whipped cream, it takes Vanilla to another level!

14. Blended Strawberry Lemonade

If you are a lover of lemonade and are looking for an option that is a little different, you should consider the Blended Strawberry Lemonade.

It is another favorite of ours, especially because it tastes almost like an Icee, with a similar consistency, just not as sweet.

It is a blended fruit drink made with crushed ice, lemonade and strawberry puree.

While this Starbucks drink is sweeter than the Starbucks Lemonade, it is still quite tart, which is great.

This allows it to be a fantastic and refreshing drink, especially in the summer months! It is not too heavy, but not it does contain Frappuccino syrup, which adds extra sweetness. 

15. Strawberry Funnel Cake Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

If you enjoy Funnel Cake… I mean, who doesn’t, then this is a decadent and tasty non caffeinated Frappuccino at Starbucks to try.

The Strawberry Funnel Cake Crème Frappuccino is another new drink released by Starbucks, and it is easy to see why it’s been instantly popular. It really does taste like Funnel Cake!

Funnel cake syrup is blended with ice and milk then combined with strawberry puree and topped with funnel cake pieces and whipped cream.

The powdered-sugar-funnel-cake pieces add great texture and flavor, and the strawberry purée brings the drink together well. This is a perfect, indulgent treat.

16. Iced Guava Passion Fruit Drink 

Iced Guava Passion Fruit Drink

One of the most refreshing dairy free caffeine free Starbucks drinks is the Iced Guava Passion Fruit Drink.

The drink is made with a combination of a guava juice blend, coconutmilk and a pineapple and ginger syrup served over ice.

The coconut milk is smooth and light, and works well with the pineapple and ginger flavors. These are unusual flavor combinations, but they complement each other very well. 

It’s another great option to drink in the summer months, and while it is refreshing, it’s creamy too.

17. Evolution Fresh Organic Superfruit Greens

Evolution Fresh Organic Superfruit Greens

This is a slightly different caffeine-free drink option as it is pre-bought in a bottle in store. However, just because it is not made fresh, doesn’t mean that it isn’t a tasty option to consider!

What we love about this drink is that being bottled, you do not have to worry about drinking it all at once. You can pop it in your bag and take it with you.

Described as a fruit and vegetable smoothie, this is a very healthy drink packed with nutrients and vitamin C.  

It contains ingredients such as mango purée, spinach, chlorella, and spirulina.

While it does have greens in it, it does not taste savory, and it is a great sweet tasting smoothie. It is available in 11 fl oz (0.33 l).

18. Steamed Milk

Last, but not least, we have steamed milk. While this is the simplest option on the Steamer menu, it is still super tasty.

It is the perfect warming drink in winter, great for the kids and you can choose from all the milk options available.

In addition to this, you can choose to add cream, drizzles, or syrups to the milk too. Sometimes, choosing a simple drink is the best option.
