Starbucks Launches Organic Vegan Avocado Spread

The coffeehouse is slowly rolling out more vegan food options, including guac-like spread and a new sprouted bagel.

International coffeehouse Starbucks launched a new spring menu—which features a vegan avocado spread and sprouted bagel—this week at its 24,000 locations worldwide. The organic avocado spread (sold in packaged containers) is a guacamole-like condiment made with organic Hass avocados, onion, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice, and sea salt. The new vegan sprouted bagel (made with whole grains, brown and golden flax, sunflower seeds, and wheat) joins several existing vegan bagel options including blueberry, plain, and cinnamon raisin. Earlier this year, the company launched its first prepared vegan breakfast item—an assortment of grains soaked overnight in coconut milk—and continues to experiment with plant milk-based drink options after its initial introduction of almond milk last year. While Starbucks slowly introduces cruelty-free options, innovative vegan items (such as the veganized Egg McMuffin-like breakfast sandwich at California-based Amy’s Drive Thru) are currently available at a rapidly growing list of vegan establishments around the country.
