Starbucks recently introduced its first fully vegan prepared breakfast option at 600 New York locations. The new item features a combination of steel cut oats, quinoa, and chia seeds soaked overnight in coconut milk and topped with coconut shavings and sliced almonds. The company has focused on developing protein-rich food items, and their vegan option is loaded with six grams per serving. This menu addition—coupled with Starbucks’ introduction of almond milk to 4,600 US stores last year—is yet another step in the plant-based direction for the coffeehouse giant. If the new vegan option proves successful in its New York locations, Starbucks will roll it out across all of its menus nationwide.
