Starbucks Introduces Plant-Based Protein Blended Cold Brew
Starbucks Coffee is introducing plant-based Protein Blended Cold Brew. The new beverages are offered in almond and cacao and are available at participating Starbucks stores across the US and on mobile order and pay.
Protein Blended Cold Brew is made with slow-steeped Starbucks Cold Brew, alternative milk and plant-based proteins for a non-dairy beverage that’s a good source of protein. This beverage is inspired by the popularity of cold brew coffee and a growing interest in plant-based proteins. Starbucks Cold Brew continues to be a favourite since joining the cold coffee menu in 2015. Additions to this platform include Nitro DRAFT Cold Brew, Cold Foam Cold Brew and Protein Blended Cold Brew.
Starbucks baristas craft the Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew beverage by blending Starbucks Cold Brew with almond milk, plant-based protein, almond butter, Banana Date Fruit Blend and ice. A grande Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew has 270 calories, 12 grams of plant-based protein and retails for approximately USD $5.95.
Starbucks baristas craft the Cacao Protein Blended Cold Brew beverage by blending Starbucks Cold Brew with coconut milk, plant-based protein, cacao powder, Banana Date Fruit Blend and ice. Cacao Protein Blended Cold Brew has 10 grams of plant-based protein.
With more than 170,000 ways to customize beverages at Starbucks stores, customers can create a favourite drink that fits their lifestyle, even with the new Protein Blended Cold Brews (additional cost may apply), such as adding a whole banana in place of Banana Date Fruit Blend, adding an extra packet of plant-based protein to double the amount in the cup, adding an extra shot or two of Starbucks Espresso Roast, or even adding a shot of decaf Starbucks Espresso Roast in place of Starbucks Cold Brew.
Protein Blended Cold Brew is available while supplies last at Starbucks cafés nationwide. For more information, visit: www.starbucks.com.
