The Secret To Making Any Starbucks Drink Coffee-Free

Starbucks might be synonymous with coffee, but there's actually a trick to make almost any Starbucks drink without coffee. While coffee or espresso drinks might be a lifesaver for many on most mornings, there is a fraction of the population who aren't coffee crazy. Since Starbucks seems to have a new exciting drink pop up every few months or so, it only makes sense that everyone — a coffee lover or not — would want to try it. That's why this hack is one to remember if you want to forgo the caffeine.

The easiest part of ordering any Starbucks drink coffee-free is that you only have to change one word. Rather than take time to explain to the barista that you do not want any coffee or shots of espresso in your order, you can simply ask for a creme rather than a latte. Drinks like the beloved seasonal favorite, a Pumpkin Spice Latte, can be changed to a Pumpkin Spice Creme for the same warm, spiced drink without any coffee (via Insider).

Other coffee-free drinks to order at Starbucks

There are plenty of other delicious and fun drink options at Starbucks that actually have nothing to do with coffee. Drinks like a Chi Tea Latte, an Iced Peach Green Tea, or an Iced Guava White Tea Lemonade all sound refreshing and may offer just the boost you need sans java (via Society 19). Anything matcha green tea is a good way to go.

However, if you're looking to go completely caffeine-free, there are still so many drinks you can order from the Starbucks menu. Try one of Starbucks' sweet-sounding Frappuccinos (Mocha Cookie Crumble!). Or, sample a Blended Strawberry Lemonade, or a Cinnamon Dulce Creme — just remember that one key word. Hot chocolate, lemonade, and other fruit-infused drinks are also available if you aren't feeling the coffee vibe (via Taste of Home).

If you're still in doubt about whether or not a drink will have coffee or caffeine, just ask your barista. They'll be happy to help you pick the perfect drink for you.
