Sunday, June 27, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

Most recently, we Malaysians have been adopting more plant-based diets whether it is for health benefits or to cut back on their carbon footprint. Despite the trend however, many of us are also still struggling to jump on the ‘eat clean’ bandwagon, with the assumption that healthy options are unpleasant to taste. While others, who are already seasoned plant-based eaters, may have difficulty finding the right options at their local eateries.

Lo and behold, that’s not the case at Starbucks! At Starbucks Malaysia, they have perfected several plant-based beverages that will make you second-guess if it’s truly 100% plant-based (yes, they are), and if you are already practicing the plant-based life but couldn’t find a drink that’s suitable to your taste, well look no more as Starbucks has the perfect line-up for you!

Almond Caramel Mocha Frappuccino

This drink combines the rich flavors of almond milk and the silky-smooth caramel syrup to create a creamy and indulgent guilt-free beverage! The generous serving of mocha sauce and caramel drizzle does wonders to the drink. While pleasing to all senses, this perfectly crafted beverage is also best enjoyed when you’re just simply walking around under the Malaysian heat!

Coconut Vanilla Chocolate Cream Frappuccino

If you are a fan of the Starbucks classic, Chocolate Cream Frappuccino, this would be the best plant-based alternative for you.

A great go-to drink when you’re craving for a Frappuccino that brings familiarity and comfort.
