Those who are conscious about avoiding dairy have always had to leave the whipped cream off of their Starbucks orders but now, there's a vegan whipped cream option that's being tested at two Seattle area Starbucks locations. And interestingly, the plant-based whipped cream is made with a unique lentil base. As part of the testing of this product, Starbucks is asking guests to share their feedback via QR codes.
There's a wide range of beverages that can be customized at Starbucks so that they're totally dairy-free and there are a growing number of drinks that have been specifically created with non-dairy alternatives. Although it's difficult to modify some classic beverages without the proper plant-based replacements, Starbucks is making it easier with alternatives like this plant-powered whipped cream.
