Starbucks’ tasty new creation can be ordered dairy-free.

Starbucks UK has launched a limited-edition Peanut Butter Cup Frappuccino.

The new delicious frappe is made using a blend of peanut-butter flavored sauce and chocolate chips topped with cream.

Although the original drink contains milk and cream, it can be swapped into a vegan order by going cream-free and choosing from a variety of dairy-free milk options, which the coffee giant offers including soya, oat, coconut, and almond.

The peanut butter is said to be made from sunflower seeds making it a good option for those with a nut allergy.

REVIEW: Starbucks New Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Frappicino ? (and our first #InstaReels video – it was tricky but I think we got the hang of it) . We gave the new @starbucksuk #vegan Frappe a 8/10 – damn it was good! Couldn't taste any coffee, so it was more like a #peanutbutter shake. . [Edit: the baristas said it was real peanut butter, but people are saying that its made with sunflower seeds, which makes it #nutfree – Check with staff to be certain if you have allergies . It's sweet, cold and salty. It has some crunch to it too thanks to the chocolate chips . To answer all the uncertainty, the chocolate chips are #accidentallyvegan as they may contain traces of dairy . Order it with #oatmilk and no cream and its vegan baby!!! . #veganfooduk #veganuk #ukvegans #plantbased

Vegan and sustainable Starbucks

The international coffee chain has launched several vegan friendly products in recent times after pledging to slash its greenhouse gas emissions, reduce landfills waste by half over the next decade and committing to saving or replenishing 50 percent of all the water it uses for its operations and coffee production by 2030.

“Like most things that are worthwhile, this will not be easy,” Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson declared in a letter detailing the company’s new environmental pledges.

The CEO also said he would ‘push consumers towards’ choosing vegan milk stating plant-based milk is ‘a big part of the solution’ when it comes to reducing its footprint for greenhouse gases, water, and waste.
