When we think of Starbucks, we usually think of dark and strong drinks like their popular coffee and tea. However, the famous coffee shop also offers lighter options for people who enjoy smoother beverages, blonde coffee.
Starbucks blonde drinks are made with low-acid coffee beans and feature lighter roasts than their traditional offerings.
The company first introduced blonde drinks in 2016 as a way to offer variety for those who were looking for lighter beverages.

Starbucks Blonde Drinks
1. Starbucks Blonde Roast Coffee
Starbucks Blonde Roast Coffee is a medium roast American coffee that’s roasted to bring out the natural fruit and citrus notes.
Starbucks’ website says, “Blonde roast is crafted to shine with the bright, natural flavor of green and blackberries while delivering just the right amount of sweetness and body to balance the dry finish of the coffee.”
2. Starbucks Blonde Caffè Americano
The Blonde Caffè Americano features “caffeinerose” and is made with black currant and caramel malts and cocoa nibs.
It’s the perfect drink for customers looking for a more subtle version of their traditional espresso.
3. Starbucks Blonde Cappuccino
Starbucks Blonde Cappuccino is a blended Grande mocha with white mocha sauce, caramel drizzle, and whipped cream.
4. Starbucks Blonde Caffè Latte
The Starbucks Blonde Caffè Latte combines Starbucks Blonde Roast Espresso, milk, and steamed milk to create a delicious lunchtime pick-me-up.
The drink is offered hot or iced. It’s most similar to the cafe au lait, but lighter and without sugar.
5. Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte
Instead of the light vanilla flavor, you might expect from Starbucks’ signature beverage, the Blonde Vanilla Latte has a sweet coffee taste.
Although Starbucks isn’t advertising this drink as being vegan or dairy-free, it’s vegan-friendly.
The drink is prepared with milk and has sweet hints of vanilla flavor, according to Starbucks. The vanilla flavor is lightly accented by hints of mocha, milk, and espresso.
6. Starbucks Blonde Hazelnut Latte
The Starbucks Blonde Hazelnut Latte features espresso, steamed milk, and hazelnut syrup, and is sweetened with brown sugar.
The drink contains 65 calories, 3 grams of fat, 12 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein.
7. Starbucks Blonde Flat White
The Blonde Flat White is a combination of coffee and steamed milk. To make it, all you have to do is add espresso and steamed milk to a non-dairy milk base.
Once you have both coffee and steamed milk in the coffee maker, select a temperature for your brewing time and go.
If you’re looking for a creamy and frothy drink, you may want to opt for an espresso. For an all-out caffeine rush, opt for a Venti or larger cup.
8. Starbucks Blonde Americano Misto
This lightened version of Starbucks’ traditional Americano Misto features a blend of medium roast Starbucks Espresso and cold brew.
9. Iced Starbucks Blonde Hazelnut Latte
This one is perfect if you’re looking for something less caffeinated but more flavorful than a Grande caramel macchiato.
A few months ago, the chain introduced the Iced Starbucks Blonde Hazelnut Latte to its US menu, and it’s a latte made with 60 percent espresso. The blend is roasted light and serves as the foundation for the entire drink.
The drink contains 400 calories, so be mindful of how many of them you’re consuming. This iced drink is made with cold-pressed Blonde Roast, Blonde Espresso, ice, and milk. It’s filled with sweet caramel.
10. Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte
The Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte is made with cold-pressed Blonde Roast, Blonde Espresso, cold-pressed vanilla syrup, and milk. This drink is creamy, smooth, and sweet.
11. Iced Starbucks Blonde Caffè Americano
The Iced Starbucks Blonde Caffè Americano is just a chilled version of Starbucks’ Blonde Caffè Americano.
Starbucks says the drink has a hint of vanilla and citrus with a fruity finish.
As Starbucks’ Blonde Lattes continue to grow in popularity, there’s a chance the drink will appear on the menu for permanent or seasonal availability.
Whatever the case, these lighter coffee options from the coffee chain are sure to please those who are looking for something different from their normal order.
You can order Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte in their standard latte sizes as well as Grande and Venti.
