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".
