Starbucks Launches Two Drinks Made with Plant-Based Milk

The major coffeehouse continues to explore coconut and almond milk-based drinks.

Multinational coffeehouse Starbucks launched two new drinks for the spring on Tuesday, both of which are made with plant-based milks. The Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato (which contains a main ingredient, white chocolate mocha sauce, that is not dairy-free) and Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato—made with espresso, almond milk, cinnamon dolce syrup, and finished with a caramel drizzle and cinnamon dolce sprinkles. While neither option is completely dairy-free, the latter can be veganized by requesting that your barista substitute a pump of caramel syrup in place of the dairy-based drizzle, and use cinnamon powder to top in lieu of cinnamon dolce sprinkles (which contain extractives of butter). Starbucks is promoting both as cold drinks but they can also be ordered hot. The company added almond milk to its menu last year and has been incorporating more plant-based milks into prepared drinks and food—particularly the recent debut of its first all-vegan breakfast option.
