New oat dairy alternative launches at Starbucks

Starbucks is marking the start of the new year with another dairy alternative in its line up plus more vegan and gluten-free lunch options for customers.

From 4th January 2018, Starbucks stores across Europe will be offering oat as a brand new milk alternative– joining almond, coconut and soya already on the menu – providing customers with a wide range of substitutes to dairy milk.

Oat is the latest alternative available at Starbucks, which has been developed to complement Starbucks 100% Arabica coffee. It has a mild, slightly sweet taste and is a vegan alternative to milk as well as a source of fibre – a great option for a Latte at breakfast time.

My Starwards Rewards gold members can enjoy the full range of dairy alternatives in Starbucks company-operated stores for free.

Also joining the lunch menu is a brand new, gluten-free Chicken & Pesto Panini. Served hot, it includes roasted chicken breast with green pesto, sweet sun blush baby tomatoes and mozzarella, deliciously melted on gluten-free bread.

For those looking for more vegan options at Starbucks, there is a new BBQ Vegan Wrap with Jackfruit and Slaw, which has a carrot and puréed sweetcorn slaw topped with spinach and then served in a whole wheat seeded wrap.
