Tips on Ordering Vegan Starbucks Drinks

  • Make sure to get the caramel syrup and not the sauce. Caramel sauce at Starbucks is not dairy-free.
  • Some drinks contain honey, so be on the lookout for it if you are vegan. If you are strictly looking for dairy-free, this won’t be of consequence to you.
  • The easiest way to get a dairy-free drink is to let your barista know that you can’t have dairy products in your drink. They will have a good idea of what on the menu contains dairy.
  • 2% low-fat dairy milk is the standard milk used for non-frappuccino drinks.
  • Whole milk is the standard milk used for frappuccinos.
  • The white mocha sauce used in some popular drinks should be avoided if going dairy-free. Unfortunately, it is not dairy-free.
