Starbucks has coconut milk, it has soy milk...but what about almond milk? Sure our non-dairy needs have technically been met, but since almond milk is basically the Beyoncé of all dairy substitutes we were thrilled to hear Starbs announcement that they're stepping up their game. According to Refinery29, customers have been pouring in requests on My Starbucks Idea demanding that almond milk be an option, so starting on Sept. 6, almond milk will be an option at 4,600 locations.
While you're probably already thinking about whether to order Silk or Blue Diamond in your mocha, the almond milk itself will actually be a new, original concoction—No name brands at our beloved 'Bux! For 60 extra cents you're going to get an almond milk crafted to taste amazing with Starbucks drinks. "We created our own almondmilk recipe to complement our hot, iced and Frappuccino® blended beverages. It was designed so that when steamed, it creates a rich foam for hot beverages and is delicious and creamy when served in cold beverages," Yoke Wong, manager of the Starbucks Research and Development team, said in a press release.
Your iced skinny vanilla latte just got a whole lot tastier. If you're worried that the new almond milk option won't be available at a store near you, don't worry too much because it's likely to be nationwide by the end of November. Happy sipping!
