Starbucks releases plant-based cold brew options

Specifically, the plant-based proteins are pea and rice protein and all ingredients are certified vegan, according to Refinery29.

Starbucks has really upped their game with their new vegan Cold Brew options. With this new cold drink using a more "natural" alternative, consumers can feel less guilty about consuming this cold beverage.

Starting today, August 14, the two new Cold Brew options can be purchased at your local coffee shop.

It's the first time Starbucks has menued a drink that combines coffee and protein, though not the first time it has offered a plant-based blended beverage. "This beverage is inspired by our customers' love for Starbucks Cold Brew and a growing interest in plant-based proteins", the company wrote in a news release.

The drink is offered in Almond and Cacao flavors and will be available while supplies last.

Cold brew joined the Starbucks menu in 2015 and Starbucks.

The almond variety contains 270 calories, 12 grams of fat and 22 grams of sugar, while the cacao version has 250 calories, 9 grams of fat and 26 grams of sugar.

According to Starbucks, the beverage was "inspired by our customers' love for Starbucks Cold Brew and a growing interest in plant-based proteins".

Starbucks Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew. This drink has almond milk, cold brew coffee, the plant-based protein, a banana date fruit blend, and almond butter, all mixed with ice and blended.

Customization of the drinks is also available.

Instead of Banana Date Fruit Blend try swapping it with a whole banana. If none of the above take your fancy then customize the drink the way you want to.

So, whether you're looking to replace breakfast with a protein-packed smoothie or refuel after a workout, these are some great all-new options for you.
