Today, Starbucks added a new vegan Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink to its expanding plant-based beverage options at participating locations across the United states. The company describes the new drink as “guava, passionfruit, pineapple, and ginger, hand-shaken with coconut milk and ice for a smooth and creamy beverage to uplift your day.” In March, Starbucks added two limited-time vegan drinks to its spring menu: Iced Golden Ginger Drink and Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink, both made with coconut milk and inspired by the vibe of Venice Beach in Southern California.
Starbucks’ emphasis on new dairy-free options is part of CEO Kevin Johnson’s sustainability mission to shift the company away from dairy, which accounts for 21 percent of its carbon footprint.
Currently, Starbucks has reopened 85 percent of its US stores, with modified operations and hours, and plans to reach 90 percent by early June.
