Starbucks debuts new plant-based protein cold brew coffee

Starbucks Launches Plant-Based Protein Beverages

Starbucks announced on Tuesday that it will now offer a plant-based protein blended cold brew beverage on its menu at stores across the country.

Offered in Almond and Cacao flavors, the options will only be available while supplies last.

While both drinks are crafted with plant-based protein and Banana Date Fruit Blend, the Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew, with 12 grams of protein, also features almond milk and almond butter.

"Plant-based beverages, plant-based proteins are a choice that many consumers are gravitating towards", Starbucks's CEO Kevin Johnson said in June at an annual institutional-investor gathering. The 16-ounce grande size drinks are made up of cold brew coffee, coconut or almond milk, and pea and brown-rice protein.

The Cacao beverage is blended with Cold Brew, coconutmilk, plant-based protein, cacao powder, banana date fruit blend and ice.

Pricing for a 16-ounce beverage is listed at $5.95 Dollars and it boasts a calorie content of 270 or less.

Starbucks is now giving customers the chance to get a healthy dose of protein in their coffee. According to Starbucks, these non-dairy beverages are "a good source of protein and [keep] you going throughout the day".
