All those thirst-quenching lattes and lip-smacking mochas are getting a makeover and who wouldn’t want to try it when it’s from your very favorite café chain Starbucks? Yes, people have long wondered if the coffee giant could offer something that would satisfy the vegan taste buds. The time has come and here is how you can order some vegan goodness without compromising on the label’s trademark flavor. But hey, before you start drooling over the menu, make a note of the calories that you are about to intake as there are instances when it doubles the protein content when compared to your regular milk drink.
- Soy Hazelnut Latte
Replacing dairy products with soy milk, this is one of the best-of-its-kind. The hazelnut flavors are sure going to do some magic to your soul. But, beyond the taste aspect, it contains everything from carbs to fat and hence it is wise to consume this as a meal replacement rather than an evening drink. Moreover, the sugar content is always there and being vegan doesn’t stop it being a caffeinated dessert.
- Iced Caffe Americano
This drink is an absolute summer favorite that has sinful ounces of coffee with no traces of milk. Yes, it’s completely black and is prepared with shots of espresso, water, and ice cubes. It definitely leads the league with a mere 15 calories which is very low when compared to its latte counterparts. The nutritionists completely approve of this one.
- Green Tea Frappuccino
With a whoomping 460 calories, this tops the list and easily replaces a complete meal without doubt. Oh yes, the whipped cream does add quite a lot of Trans fat to the whole drink. Well, the vegan part comes with the addition of soy milk though. Being super-lustrous and frothy in nature, it’s a complete luxury drink and of course vegan. So keep smiling! And yea, green tea comes to the rescue in this case.
Despite the fact that these delicacies contain a few extra calories that you need to burn with either a walk or a jog, they are definitely better than those caffeinated energy drinks that are available in market. With all these said, why restrict it to vegans when any coffee lover can simply relish it from time to time?
