For those not about the dairy life, Starbucks is expanding their milk options beginning February 17. The coffee company will officially offer coconut milk as a substitute for bovine milk, nationally.
It's been known that Starbucks has been testing coconut milk in their stores for a year now. Unsurprisingly, the alternative to milk performed very well among the coffee chain's customer base at select test locations. Hence, the national release.
Coconut milk will be joining soy milk as part of Starbucks' non-dairy alternatives. This should bode well for patrons suffering from lactose intolerance or looking to cut back on fat content.
While almond milk seems like the next logical choice in the roster, it's less than likely to be featured on the coffee menu due to those with tree nut allergies.
