Starbucks announces the launch of it’s very first certified vegan breakfast offering, overnight oats with pineapple and mango purée.
Starbucks has been offering soy milk since 2004 and recently upped its non-dairy game with the addition of almond milk last Autumn. However, if you’re looking for a vegan food at Starbucks, until now vegans have been limited to fruit cups, a plain bagel, and packaged snacks like select Kind bars, mixed nuts, and Hippeas.
But this week that all changed with the introduction of Starbucks’ first certified vegan breakfast. The new vegan offering, called Overnight Grains, is made by “cooking” quinoa, chia seeds, and steel-cut oats in coconut milk. It’s served with a layer of pineapple and mango at the bottom, along with almond slices and toasted coconut to add a crunchy texture. The delicious option is ideal for breakfast, with 360 calories per serving and six grams of protein.
Unfortunately, the Overnight Grains are only available at select Starbucks stores around the New York area. It’s part of a small in-store test but will hopefully be rolled out nationwide across the US soon, and with any luck will be making it’s way over to us in the UK in the not-too-distant future!
