Sacrifice Starbucks Coffee
Many people are relish with Starbucks and it is rather hard for them to give up their favorite drinks when they are thinking of becoming vegan. Most of them will worry that they have to give up their favorite drinks and they will just not wish this to happen. Some of my friends normally would love to pick up a cup of vanilla latte or coffee Frappuccino while they are on their way to their working places.
As there is problem since vegan shouldn’t consume any dairy products but these type of coffees are comprise with milk. Therefore, most of them are wondering whether Starbucks does offer any alternative coffees that are free of milks so that they can still enjoy their favorite drinks even when they converted to full vegan.
If you are also keen to find out if Starbucks offering drinks that are suit for vegan to consume, there are actually quite a few that you can actually get. I have compiled a list which by far the menu lists of vegan drinks which Starbucks does offer at this moment.
The following drinks in the menu range of Starbucks which are vegan:
* Mocha made with soy milk and no whipped cream
* Cappuccino made with soy milk
* Latte made with soy milk
* Caffe Misto made with soy milk
* Raspberry Blackcurrant Frappuccino
* Filter Coffee of the Week (black/with a dash of soy milk)
* Chai Tea Latte made with soy milk
* Americano (black/with a dash of soy milk)
* Mango Passionfruit Frappuccino
* Classic Hot Chocolate made with soy milk and no whipped cream
* All ‘add syrups’ such as vanilla, caramel, Irish cream, hazelnut, etc (this not going to include the caramel drizzle topping since it contains dairy products)
And you need to know that both the cream and coffee-based Frappuccinos are not vegan as well since they contain dairy. For Signature hot chocolate that provided in Starbucks also having dairy. If you are still having doubt with their menu range of vegan drinks that they are offering, you may ask them to show you the ingredients for all the drinks that are vegan and they are willing to explain to you as well for all the ingredient contain inside.
Most of my vegan friends are in love with soy steamed Caffe Misto which is made of coffee with soy milk. The taste is just like a latte with an extra shot you can enjoy.
You can also find iced coffee drinks served in Starbucks. It is possible for you to order an iced latte and the drink is just like half a latte since the other half of the cup is fill with ice.
Nutritional Information at Starbucks Website
If you take a look at the nutritional information from the Starbucks website, you will know there is 240 calories for a grande in the soy latte. For example, a Latte made with soy milk in the United States consist of 220 calories but grande is consist for just about 160 of calories. And a consumption of 200 calories is very low for human being to absorb. Once you spend about an hour by wandering around the shopping mall after you finish your latte, you are going to burn the calories away so it is no way for you to get fat for consuming a cup of Starbucks vegan latte.
