14 Low Sugar Drinks at Caribou Coffee

Below are 14 lower sugar drinks at Caribou. All 14 drinks contain 9g of sugar or less. So, let’s skip the XL Turtle Mocha Cooler which contains 206g of sugar, and let’s go for one of the lower sugar drinks below. So, without further ado, let’s dig in. What are the lowest sugar drinks at Caribou?

1. Americano (Hot or Iced) – 0g of Sugar

An Americano is a great zero sugar option for most coffee shops for when you want a caffeine hit but minus any of the sugar. The Americano at Caribou is no exception. I love the fact that iced Americanos are on the menu too.

2. Small BOUsted Blackberry Lemonade Sparkling – 9g of Sugar

What exactly are the BOUsted drinks at Caribou? They are caffeinated drinks that come in a variety of fruit flavors. These BOUsted drinks are made with caffeine from guarana, ginseng, and coffee beans but minus the coffee taste.

So, if you are visiting Caribou for a caffeine hit but you fancy something refreshing and fruit flavored then the BOUsted range may be the drink for you.

These drinks come in sparkling and blended. Just make sure to order the sparkling over the blended as the blended versions of these drinks contain a lot more sugar than the sparkling. For example, a small BOUsted blackberry lemonade blended contains over three and a half times the sugar of the sparkling version at 33g of sugar.

3. Small BOUsted Dragon Fruit Sparkling – 8g of Sugar

The dragon fruit would personally be my choice of the BOUsted drink – made with dragon fruit, pear, and pineapple. It also contains slightly less sugar than other flavors coming in at 8g of sugar for a small sparkling.

Also, it is great to know that all BOUsted beverages contain no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners, and no artificial preservatives. Win.

4. Small BOUsted Strawberry Mango Sparkling – 9g of Sugar

The final BOUsted drink on this list is the strawberry mango in sparkling. Much like many of the others it just contains 9g of sugar for a small.
