Costa Coffee has confirmed its in-house vegan whipped cream is now available nationwide
Costa Coffee has finally launched vegan whipped cream across the UK.
The coffee giant debuted its in-house Light Whip nationwide on March 1, describing the product as a ‘lighter alternative to cream’.
Light Whip has now replaced the brand’s Light Dairy Swirl, which was unsuitable for vegans as it was made using skimmed cows’ milk.

Confirming the release with Vegan Food & Living, a Costa Coffee spokesperson said: “The new topping can be enjoyed alongside our range of dairy and plant-based dairy alternatives.
“The new Light Whip means we can provide more choice to those customers who opt for dairy-free drinks, without missing out on additional toppings.”
Costa already offers four dairy-free milk options: Soy, Almond, Coconut, and Oat. It has also recently unveiled its Ultimate Blend which can be used in any drink without surcharge until May 3.

The launch of Costa’s vegan whipped cream comes shortly after the chain expanded its plant-based range with six new items.
Just two months ago, the company debuted a new vegan Me’tball Wrap – featuring roasted red peppers and dairy-free cheese – and brought back its fan-favourite BBQ Chick’n Panino.
For those with a sweet tooth, fear not. Costa also launched a Chocolate & Caramelised Biscuit Loaf cake, Rocky Road, Heart Emoji Gingerbread biscuit, and Iced Shortcake Biscuit.
