Vegan Frappes At Starbucks

Starbucks now serves cruelty-free frappuccinos in Los Angeles, will soon be available at locations nationwide.

In January, Starbucks Coffee Company began selling vegan cookies in more than half of its locations nationwide, and now the chain has added vegan frappuccinos to its menu. The ice-cold, cruelty-free frappes are made with soymilk—which the company has officially verified is vegan-friendly. Previously, Starbucks was unable to veganize frappes due to a dairy additive used in the beverage's base. The mega-chain has since traded the non-vegan base for a plant-based alterative. Currently, its blended beverages are only available in Los Angeles, Calif., but company representatives have announced that by May the switch will apply to locations nationwide.
