7 Sugar-Free Drinks at Tim Hortons

There are 7 awesome sugar-free drinks on the Tim Hortons menu! Let’s look at what they are.

1. Original Blend Coffee – 0g Of Sugar

Original Blend Coffee is that simple yet oh-so-satisfying drink for when you want strong caffeine hit, but none of the sugar.

2. Decaf Coffee – 0g of Sugar

Decaf coffee is that perfect drink for when you want all the coffee vibes but none of the caffeine or sugar.

3. Bagged Tea – 0g of Sugar

I love having a cup of tea in the afternoon. A cup of bagged tea is a great sugar-free drink option from Tim Hortons.

4. Steeped Tea Made with Whole Leaf – 0g of Sugar

If you are a seasoned tea drinker, then it’s great to know you can order a steeped tea made with whole leaf tea. In my experience, that is unusual for a coffee chain – most coffee chains only have bagged teas. You can drink your fancy tea knowing it doesn’t contain any sugar.

5. Dark Roast Coffee – 0g of Sugar

Did you know that dark roast coffee contains less caffeine than a light roast? I know mind blown, right? The longer a coffee bean is roasted will reduce caffeine content but increase flavor. Anyway, if you fancy a lighter caffeine brewed coffee option at Tim Hortons this could be the one for you.

6. Espresso Shot – 0g of Sugar

It is a classic coffee drink. An espresso shot is a perfect drink for when you want a short caffeine hit, but no sugar. The espressos at Tim Hortons are no exception.

7. Small Iced Coffee (ordered without sugar) – 0g of Sugar

The iced coffees at Tim Hortons come with cream and sugar. A small one ordered as is will contain 7g of sugar. But if you order yours minus the sugar, it will contain 0g of sugar. Win.

Sugar-Free and Low Sugar Options at Tim Hortons – The Final Bite

Sugar-free and low sugar options at Tim Hortons. What have we learned from the above? Well, when it comes to sugar-free drinks Tim Hortons has a good selection of sugar-free coffee and coffee-related drinks. Yes, there may be nothing too surprising on the list and yes it includes basic items like espresso, iced coffee, tea, and simple coffee drinks. However, despite the basic nature of the offering, all these drinks are sugar-free and sometimes you just want a simple coffee with nothing added to it. I like that.

As for the Timbits, if you are looking to grab one your best option is the Old Fashioned Plain or the Cinnamon French Toast. In my opinion, both classic flavors go great with a simple coffee or tea.
