How to order Gluten-free Coffee Drinks
Ordering gluten-free drinks at coffee shops involves a little bit of planning and a lot of self-advocacy. My biggest tip is to do your research (like you are doing now, yay you!).
My second tip is to make sure you’re avoiding cross-contact points. This means asking baristas to wash things that might be commonly rinsed between uses. These things include blenders, milk frothers, and more.

Drinks to Avoid at Dunkin Donuts
- Avoid anything with oat milk at Dunkin Donuts. Dunkin Donuts uses Planet Oat Milk which does not have any gluten-free certification on the label, on their website, or certified gluten-free oats in the ingredient list. Learn more about how to know when oats are celiac-safe in this post.
- Avoid drinks that say they are smoked as smoke flavoring is at higher risk of being gluten derived.
- Avoid drinks that are flavored with cookie dough, there is a higher chance of these having gluten-derived natural flavors. Without an official gluten-free menu from Dunkin Donuts, I’d deem this drink as a higher risk.
- Avoid anything Oreos or Oreo flavored, this flavoring can also be at high risk for gluten-derivatives.
Gluten-Free Food at Dunkin Donuts
The Hash Browns are gluten-free but they are made in a shared fryer. So if you have celiac, they aren’t safe for you.
Otherwise, nothing is really safe unless your Dunkin Donuts has gluten-free brownies.
