Starbucks is releasing a new dairy-free coffee this week, the Iced Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte. Made with coconut milk and brewed espresso, this drink will be another permanent addition to Starbucks' growing list of dairy-free options. Unlike many of the other lattes that they offer, this one is free from syrup, which makes it less sweet.
According to the Starbucks website, the ingredients in this latte are:
Coconut Milk [Water, Coconut Cream, Cane Sugar, Tricalcium Phosphate, Coconut Water Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Gellan Gum, Corn Dextrin, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol)], Ice, Brewed Espresso, Vanilla Bean Powder [Sugar, Natural Flavor, Vanilla Bean Pieces].
As with all Starbucks items, they can't give an allergen-free guarantee, and there is definitely risk for cross contamination. But, if you're able to safely enjoy one of these new lattes, they will be available starting July 10th!
