Vegan drink options at Starbucks?
Posted Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 11:34 AM

I am taking classes again, for my certification in Education to be a teacher. I forgot, being a grad student means I need that caffeine again! If I am wanting something cheap at Starbucks, no fancy soy lattes or things! What are some ideas?

I do not like black coffee / tea but maybe I need to learn how to like it? As, I do have a preference for a sweet taste.

All I can think of is black coffee with sugar or black tea / green tea. Wondering if there are more creative ideas! I like iced drinks more, like iced caffe Americano or Iced chai. But I do not know if they could make for example, an iced chai without the milk.

We do black coffee w/soy milk. My girlfriend buys their simple syrup in a bottle.

I wonder if you could ask them to put a shot of vanilla syrup in it, and then soy milk? Experiment till you find one you like. I would prefer not to have all that sugar, but if it's not all the time.....

My all time favourite Starbucks treat is a "London Fog" - Earl Grey tea, soy milk and sugar free vanilla. Tres delicieux! (the Canadian coffee shop "equivalent" to Starbucks is Esquires Coffee and they also make a mean London Fog - and serve almond milk. Wish Starbucks would too.)

All we are saying is "Give Peas a Chance"

these all sound great, but I do think I will need to cut out the sugar. Maybe I can ask for less sugar in the syrup form, or if they have any sugar-free kinds?

Thank you all =)

Starbucks does have a 'sugar free' version of some of their syrups but not all - however, they use artificial sweeteners instead which isn't a great idea either

I like their green tea lemonade and get it without sweetener. Of course the lemonade has some sweet to it, but it's plenty for the whole drink. My husband likes it with one squirt of sweet.

My husband orders the Iced Chai with soy milk all the time.
