If you’ve been vegan for more than five minutes, you’ve probably already learned how to order a vegan drink at Starbucks. But did you know that the coffee chain also offers an array of vegan foods—from snacks to heartier, protein-filled bowls? As consumers, we have the opportunity to drive real change for animals every time we make a purchase. Showing your compassionate side can be as easy as choosing a vegan snack or drink instead of one that’s packed with the cholesterol and cruelty that go hand in hand with using animals for food.
At Starbucks locations across the nation, order or grab any of these vegan items, and you’re good to go:
- Lentils & Vegetable Protein Bowl With Brown Rice
- Avocado Spread
- Justin’s Classic Almond Butter
- Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
- Bissinger’s 75% Dark Chocolate + Sea Salt Mini Chocolates
- Dark Chocolate Bars
- Dried fruit
- Classic Oatmeal
- Hearty Blueberry Oatmeal
- Fruit Salad
- HIPPEAS Organic Chickpea Puffs
- Macadamia Oat Cookie
While most vegan foods at Starbucks are prepackaged, the Macadamia Oat Cookie (which is packed with oatmeal, macadamia nuts, and dried cranberries) is available in the bakery case along with other freshly baked goods. Try it warmed.
- Mixed nuts
- Overnight Grains
- Raw Granola Bars
- Roasted Almonds
- Emmy’s Organic Coconut Cookies (Both options, Coconut Vanilla and Dark Cacao, are vegan.)
- Sea salt potato chips
- Some Kind products (Check to make sure that they don’t contain honey.)
- Plain, Sprouted Grain, Cinnamon Raisin, and Blueberry bagels
Try the vegan Avocado Spread on your bagel for a savory breakfast, or ask your barista for a packet or two of agave syrup if you’ve got a sweet tooth.
And that’s not all! In Chicago- and Seattle-area stores, the chain is testing a new lunch menu featuring a vegan Cauliflower Tabbouleh Side Salad with chopped parsley, mint, cucumber, tomato, and cauliflower on a bed of arugula. And in select South Florida locations, you can find vegan Bunnie Cakes Passion Fruit Cupcakes.
As we’re sure you already know, Starbucks also carries tons of vegan drinks. From dairy-free coffee- and espresso-based beverages to teas, juices, and more—there’s something for everyone. Check out our How to Order Vegan Drinks at Starbucks guide:
