I don’t know about you but I love a good Starbucks, whether it’s for a casual catch up with a friend or a formal meeting. Did you know that most of the drinks can be made vegan? Here is my guide to making your Starbucks vegan friendly:
Firstly replace your milk for soy or coconut milk. Soy is usually free but they charge 40p extra for coconut milk. Then avoid the following ingredients: whipped cream, java chips, protein powder, caramel drizzle. After posting my pumpkin spice hot chocolate on Instagram the other week, I have recently found out that there is dairy products in a couple of the drinks that Starbucks offer. These are: anything with pumpkin spice, white mocha and caramel brûlée but don’t let this avoid you from treating yourself to a Starbucks once in a while.
Following these rules means that your favourite hot chocolate or perfect coffee can actually be made vegan. Even the flavoured syrups are all vegan. I have recently found out that the Gingerbread and Toffee Nut syrups are alright for vegans too! Have you tried the Gingerbread Hot Chocolate with Coconut Milk yet?! If your still a bit unsure, Starbucks have a really useful allergy guide on their website that you can find here.
Starbucks also offer a list of vegan friendly foods too. You can choose from: peanut and cashew bar, raspberry & nut bar, Starbucks sweeties, vegetarian feast flatbread, porridge made with soy milk, dried fruit mix and the dark chocolate bar.
