Starbucks Introducing Vegan Frappuccinos

Vegans, Rejoice! A Frappuccino, Made Just For You

If you're looking for a dairy-free treat to enjoy on Earth Day, pop in to your nearest Starbucks. According to LA blogger Quarry Girl, select Starbucks stores are now serving a vegan Frappuccino.

According to Starbucks employees, the newly available Frap is the result of a reformulation of the drink, which is now blended with coffee, a proprietary syrup, ice, and milk, rather than a dairy base. Although caramel sauce and Java Chip are not vegan, baristas can now blend a dairy-free version with soy milk. The vegan option has just soft launched, so it's not officially on the menu; the chain will reportedly make the beverage official on May 4.

I ask for my coffee with soy at Starbucks, so it's nice to know the blended equivalent can be prepared in the same way.


Are you excited about a vegan Frappuccino?

Soy is the cheapest to grow because the government subsidizes the cost. They might do it with rice too. I think Starbucks and other coffee houses would get less business from people with dairy allergies/vegans/health nuts if they started charging over $1 more for almond milk or some of the other alternatives. In my experience, I've found soy milk to be the least expensive. Starbucks gets milk especially made for them from Silk.

As a vegan, I am VERY EXCITED about this!

If whole milk was being used previously (I believe it was), there will be about a 5g difference in terms of fat (estimate), most of that is saturated. About a 50 calorie difference. If you leave off the whipped cream, the drink isn't half bad for you. Just budget it in as a snack (depending on which syrup, it will probably run you 200-300 calories).

Hmmm..I'm not vegan, but I'm curious about the nutritional content- I don't like coffee drinks that are overtly sweet or anything, but I may try this if it's on the healthier end of frappes!

What would be the calorie count of a soy frap?

'Bout time! :) I've been waiting for soy fraps for so long. I normally have to order iced soy lattes instead b/c I'm lactose intolerant. This give me more options. I'm excited!

I'm very excited about the soy option for fraps! Honestly though, Starbucks burns their coffee and I don't like that they use Vanilla soy milk (too sweet with sweet drinks), so I won't be going out of my way to go there. If I'm traveling and Starbucks is my only option, I'll go there, but I would rather support local businesses. There's a local coffee shop that has always done soy blended drinks, they use regular Silk, and they offer discounts like half price Monday for military people. I just hated always being stuck with a hot coffee drink at Starbucks, even when it was 120 degrees out.

Not a vegan, but I may try it to check out the taste. Usually I don't exactly like frappuccinos..but the vegan version may taste yummy. Since I prefer tofurky cold cuts to real turkey cold cuts so I know I may like vegan/vegetarian products more than the original.
