How to Order Keto at Dunkin Donuts

First things first, you need to know the basics of ordering at Dunkin Donuts to ensure that your meals will be well within the required keto macros (*)

To do that, here are some of the simple tips to keep in mind.

1. Go for the breakfast sandwiches, but ditch the bread.

Yes, ordering a donut is a big no-no on the keto diet. That’s why the next best option that you have is sandwiches. 

But wait, those have bread too!

Well, here’s a tip: ditch the bread. What do you get?

The fillings—a slice of bacon, egg, and cheese—all low carb and keto-friendly.

If you feel silly eating a breakfast sandwich with no bread, you can opt to replace the bread with two slices of the ham, so you would have something to hold your keto sandwich. 

If you’re worried about the added calories and carbohydrates that the sandwich sauces might have, you’ll be happy to know that most of the breakfast sandwiches from Dunkin Donuts don’t have too much sauce! 

And if they do, you can simply ask the cashier to hold the sauces as well. 

2. Check out their wraps.

Aside from sandwiches, Dunkin Donuts has a wide range of wrap options.

While these are generally low carb, they still do contain a significant amount of carbohydrates. The bulk of the carbs that these wraps come from the flour tortilla, so the best tweak is to ask them to hold the flour tortilla.

But again, same with the sandwich tweak, you’ll end up with a pile of meat and cheese with no wrap.

Here is our tip.

Ask the staff to replace the flour tortilla with lettuce. The addition of lettuce won’t just cut down your carb intake but also boost your fiber consumption.

3. Keep your coffee as simple as possible.

Most of the time, you go to Dunkin Donuts to order coffee.

While the vast array of coffee options they have are quite tempting, the best thing you can do to stay in your keto diet is to keep your coffee as simple as possible—black with non-sugar sweeteners. 

But if you want something fancier, you can go for those too. Just make sure that they are still keto-friendly.

Fortunately for you, we’ll discuss some of the best low-carb drink options at Dunkin Donuts in the next few sections.

4. For other drinks, go for water or tea.

There’s no way that sodas and juices will fit the requirements of your keto diet. If you’re extra thirsty, a glass of cold water or unsweetened iced tea  will do.

5. Check the Dunkin Donut Nutrition Information.

The great thing about eating at Dunkin Donuts is they offer nutrition information on all of their meals, so it’s easier for you to determine if a specific dish is keto-friendly or not.

All that you need to do is go to their website and look for the nutrition information section. (2) 

Even if the menu says the meal is sugar-free, you should still check its nutrition information to be sure. After all, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially with the keto diet! 

Top 8 Dunkin Donuts Low Carb Dishes You Can Choose From

Choosing which meal to get from the Dunkin Donuts menu can be quite challenging. 

Lucky for you, we’ve specifically compiled almost all of the Dunkin Donuts keto options that you have—from the wraps, sandwiches to coffees and teas. 

We even included the Dunkin Donuts Keto sweeteners and creamer options that you can eat in case you’re not in the mood for black coffee!

Are you ready? Let’s go.

1. Sweeteners

There are only two types of sweeteners at DD—table sugar and Splenda.

You should already know that table sugar is not allowed when you’re on the keto diet. Fortunately, Splenda is one keto-friendly sweetener so that you can use it on any drink. 

However, Splenda doesn’t mix well with iced coffees. If you plan on ordering an iced coffee, we suggest that you bring your sweetener. 

2. Creamer Options

DD offers a wide range of creamers with different flavors—Boston Kreme, Coffee Cake, and Extra Extra variants. However, all of these creamers contain real cream and sugar, so using them is not a good idea.

Some branches may also offer almond milk as a creamer. While this contains lower carbs than regular milk, the version they have is sweetened, so it’s not ideal. 

One last thing, they have unsweetened cream. However, half of this cream’s amount is milk, so it contains more carbs than your usual unsweetened cream.

Our tip is to bring your low-carb creamer. Or better yet, opt for a black coffee to be on the safe side.

3. Flavor Shots Options

There is no other coffee shop that offers Flavor Shots—only DD. These shots are added to any drinks to add more flavors to them.

They provide a wide range of Flavor Shots options, including French Vanilla, Hazelnut Toasted Almond Blueberry Raspberry, and Coconut. 

Here’s the best news.

The Flavor Shots are all sugar-free and unsweetened, so it’s great for people on the keto diet.

Please take note that the Flavor Shots are different from Flavor Swirls (3). This is important as the latter contains a higher amounts of sugars, so you’ll surely get kicked out of ketosis if you get confused between the two.  

4. Coffee Options

Here are the nutrition facts of the different low carb coffee options, including iced coffee and hot coffee, in DD:
