Today, Starbucks launched its first plant-based protein-blended coffee drinks at locations nationwide. The Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew features a blend of coffee, almond milk, plant-based protein powder, almond butter, and banana-date fruit blend, while the Cacao Protein Blended Cold Brew is made with coconut milk, plant-based protein, cacao powder, and banana-date fruit blend. The drinks can be customized by adding a banana, including an extra protein packet, and swapping cold brew coffee for a shot of decaf espresso. During the company’s annual shareholder meeting in March, Starbucks Chief Operating Officer Rosalind Brewer announced that the brand is developing new plant-based options, including a food line it plans to debut by the end of the year.
