If you needed another reason to visit your local ‘bucks store, the country’s fave coffee company is launching three new dairy-free drinks for 2020.

When it comes to their dairy-free alternatives, Starbucks is on the ball. They’ve been using soy milk for an impressive 15 years - and it added coconut milk to the lineup back in 2015, followed by almond milk in 2016. This year it’s adding oat milk (finally!) to the menu at US stores.

Here are the three new creations...

Oatmilk Honey Latte

When it comes to their dairy-free alternatives, Starbucks is on the ball. They’ve been using soy milk for an impressive 15 years - and it added coconut milk to the lineup back in 2015, followed by almond milk in 2016. This year it’s adding oat milk (finally!) to the menu at US stores.

The brand new Oatmilk Honey Latte will be available at select stores across the US. It’s made with Starbucks Blonde Espresso infused with Honey Blend, and steamed oatmilk with a honey topping that is both sweet and savory.

Product developer Raegan Powell said: “When I think about oats and winter, it’s very natural to pair honey with oats. Just think of a lightly sweetened oatmeal cookie or warm bowl of oatmeal.”

Almondmilk Honey Flat White

This super smooth addition to the menu blends shots of Blonde Espresso with a Honey Blend and steamed almond milk, finished with the Flat White’s signature dot of foam.

Powell explained: “We started with the coffee. Starbucks Blonde Espresso pairs well with the lighter texture of milk alternatives, especially almond milk. It’s a little bit nuttier, so it complements the almond-based milk.”

Coconutmilk Latte

Last but not least, Starbucks is introducing a coconut milk latte. It’s a combo of shots of Starbucks Blonde Espresso with steamed coconut milk and finished with a strike of cascara sugar.

“Coconutmilk is such a star on its own, we leaned into highlighting the coffee and the [coconut]milk,” Powell said. “We found that the cascara sugar on the top added a bit of sweetness without overpowering the beverage.”

Which one are you going for?
