I don’t think I could fully function a single day without coffee and honestly, I don’t think I’ll try 😉 . When I don’t make a pot myself at home before work, my go-to is almost always Starbucks. At home- my vegan coffee adjustment was simple. I brew my coffee as normal and just replaced my creamer with almond milk. Starbucks, however, took a little bit of research to figure out what I could/could not order. In addition to the obvious (not ordering dairy milk) I needed to pay attention to other additions in their beverages. Luckily, Starbucks’ website is AMAZING at breaking down all the ingredients in their drinks. It made it super easy to see how I could change up my former favorite beverages to not include animal products.
Iced Caramel Macchiato-
I love this classic espresso drink hot or iced. All I had to do to make this delicious drink vegan was ask for no caramel sauce (it contains cream) and substitute almond milk in for the dairy.
My love for frappuccino probably started around the same time as everyone else’s- junior high. I don’t think I ever grew out of it though. I still find myself ordering them whenever I get the chance. For the mocha frappuccino specifically (yes the flavor does matter- not all are vegan), all I had to do was ask for no whipped cream and as always, substitute almond milk in for dairy.
