Starbucks UK has just launched a new peanut butter cup flavoured frappuccino which can be made vegan with a few simple swaps
High-street coffee shop chain Starbucks UK has just launched a new limited-edition frappe for peanut butter lovers – the Peanut Butter Cup Frappuccino.
The decadent frappe is made using an ice-cold blend of peanut-butter flavoured sauce, crunchy chocolate pieces and is topped with whipped cream.
There’s good news for those with a nut allergy as the peanut butter is actually made from sunflower seeds and not peanuts.
The original drink may contain milk and dairy, but the chocolate chips are accidentally vegan meaning you can order the drink to be made vegan with a few simple tweaks.
Sadly the coffee shop giant is not offering a dairy-free whipped cream alternative, but vegans can ditch the cream and opt for a dairy-free milk alternative instead of cows milk.
Starbucks UK boasts a number of dairy-free milk options on the menu including soya, oat, coconut, and almond to choose from which can be used instead of milk.
Starbucks barista Nathan who runs the @veegboi Instagram account said: “I personally love it, it’s a sweet and nutty drink—you can even add mocha chocolate sauce to make it extra chocolatey.”
The drink is priced from £3.45 for a 280ml mini size and is available in stores and via UberEats in a number of UK locations.
The new frappuccino is available now until 30 September, so if you want to get your hands on one you’ll need to be quick!
