Everything We Know About Starbucks' New Zero Creamers

Treating yourself to a fancy caramel macchiato every morning at the Starbucks drive-thru can definitely make your day better — but it can also add up fast. Just take it from this CNBC writer, who says he spends over $2,300 on Starbucks coffee alone every year. While there's nothing wrong with your daily latte-buying habit if you can afford it, you can also save money by whipping up your favorite caffeinated beverage at home. The best part? You don't have to sacrifice any of the flavor or quality of the drinks handcrafted by your neighborhood barista.

Starbucks has a whole line of products available at grocery stores across the country. You can start with any of the chain's whole bean or fresh ground coffee, from the OG Pike Place Roast to the currently popular Holiday Blend. Then, you can mix in one of Starbucks' flavored syrups or coffee creamers, both of which you can keep in your pantry and refrigerator respectively. If you're a fan of the brand's creamer but have been dreaming of a healthier, lower calorie option, you're in luck: Starbucks dropped new Zero Creamers just in time for the new year.

Starbucks released two flavors of Zero Creamers

Think you have to drink your coffee black as part of your New Year's resolution to eat (and drink) healthier? Thanks to Starbucks' new releases, you can have your creamer and drink it, too. The Starbucks Zero Creamers currently come in two flavors: Caramel Macchiato and Hazelnut Latte. "Pair this delectable creamer with our coffee so you can enjoy all the flavor with zero grams added sugar per serving," the brand suggests. Available at grocery stores across the United States as of December 14, each 28-ounce bottle of Starbucks Zero Creamer costs $5.49.

However, note that zero added sugar doesn't mean zero calories. According to Eat This, Not That!, each tablespoon-sized serving of Starbucks Zero Creamer contains 20 calories, along with one gram of fat and one gram of carbs. On the bright side, that's half the calories of Starbucks' original caramel creamer, which clocks in at 40 calories per serving. If you're looking for more better-for-you alternatives, Starbucks also offers non-dairy versions of some of its fan-favorite creamer flavors online and in grocery stores.
