Starbucks is adding its first vegan-friendly products to its line of Starbucks Coffee Creamers in the US
Inspired by its customers’ favorite handcrafted beverages, coffee shop giant Starbucks is launching two non-dairy coffee creamers in partnership with Nestlé.
The dairy-free creamers, which will retail at $4.99 each, are available in two flavors to add a delicious twist to your morning coffee – caramel and hazelnut.
The creamers, which are made from a blend of almond and oat milks, are not only dairy-free but are also free of egg, gluten, peanuts and soy making them suitable for those with multiple food allergies or intolerances.

The new non-dairy creamers are officially rolling out to stores in August, but some eagle-eyed shoppers have already spotted them in stores.
The Starbucks Caramel Flavored Non-Dairy Creamer is inspired by the customer-favorite Caramel Macchiato and is made with sweet, buttery caramel with subtle hints of vanilla flavor.
Starbucks’ Hazelnut Flavored Non-Dairy Creamer is inspired by the coffee shop chain’s Hazelnut Latte and is crafted with flavors of rich hazelnuts making it a delicious addition to autumnal or chocolatey drinks.
‘New way to enjoy coffee at home’
Speaking about the new products, Nestlé General Manager, Creamers Portfolio, Jason Merideth, said: “The launch of Starbucks Non-Dairy Creamers builds onto Starbucks’ entry into the creamer category last year.”
“It’s the latest example of innovation from the Nestlé and Starbucks global coffee alliance, which combines the well-loved flavours and premium coffee of Starbucks with Nestlé’s authority in the creamer category. The new Starbucks Non-Dairy Creamers bring consumers an exciting new way to enjoy coffee at home, particularly as non-dairy creamers are poised to continue growing in popularity.”
In a press conference in 2017, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson revealed that Starbucks was planning to increase its profits by developing more plant-based options thanks so high demand for these options for customers.
The chain hit headlines in Autumn 2018 when it began offering a vegan version of its iconic Pumpkin Spiced Latte for the first time since its launch in 2003.
Recently, the global company has launched a ready-to-drink range in UK supermarkets as well as launching coconut milk and almond milk-based drinks in its shops across the US and oat milk in selected locations.
