The vegan diet continues to gain popularity and not to mention lactose allergies are on the rise too. With that, many restaurants are making a conscious effort in accommodating the forever changing market. To help ensure every coffee enthusiast gets their caffeine fix, Starbucks announced that they have added two new non-dairy beverages to their menu: Almondmilk Honey Flat White and Coconutmilk Latte.
The Almondmilk Honey Flat White pairs Starbucks’ signature Blonde Espresso with almond milk and a drop of honey. Together these flavors create the perfect balance of nutty sweetness. The Coconutmilk Lattee combines Starbucks’ signature Blonde Espresso with coconut milk and tops the beverage with cascara sugar that together makes an unforgettable latte. These new beverages are available at participating stores across the U.S. and Canada.
But that’s not all, if you’re lucky enough to live in the Midwest, or if you’re visiting you’ll have your chance to try the new Starbucks Oatmilk Honey Lattee. This new dairy-free beverage will be available in about 1,300 stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Like the other two beverages, the drink begins with Starbucks Blonde Espresso and is combined with steamed oat milk, a touch of honey and is topped with a Toasted Honey topping.
Don’t forget you can always ask to substitute regular milk for non-dairy milk in just about any drink, although, it may cost you extra. It’s also important to keep in mind whipped cream, protein powder, caramel sauce, java chips, pumpkin spice syrup, white mocha sauce, caramel Brulée sauce, all contain dairy. Be sure to stay clear of these ingredients if you have a lactose allergy or follow a vegan diet and always check out the Starbucks website for more nutritional information before ordering.
