Dairy Free, Vegan Starbucks Menu! Oh, And The Bugs Are Gone!
After reading one day that there was dairy in a syrup used to make a drink I like and bugs used to color another drink, I decided to do some research to hopefully avoid these surprises in the future! And so, I made this Vegan Starbucks Menu. Still always ask though because ingredients can change at anytime.
Unfortunately, I use the word vegan loosely because many vegans avoid refined sugar because it is filtered through charred animal bones and Splenda because it is tested on animals which would cancel out ALL of the flavored options at Starbucks. Now, so I don’t totally ruin everyone’s day that this applies to, you can check out a yummy vegan friendly recipe (and it’s a soy alternative) at the end of this post. It will save you money, give you the convenience of making it at home and most of all…give you piece of mind!
But for those of you who do go to Starbucks I have created a Dairy Free, Vegan Coffee/Espresso Menu to reference!
Now this is just coffee, espresso, and a couple frap drinks. Curious what’s missing in this category? And why?
This reference below states what is not vegan or dairy free and why!
*If You Are A Regular, You Should Definitely Consider Getting A Starbucks Card Because All Of Those Added Soy Shots Will Be Free!

Dairy Free, Vegan, Soy Alternative Frappuccino Recipe
- 1 cup almond milk
- sweetener, to taste
- 1 tsp. extract of choice
Mix up everything and pour into a two cup plastic container. Place your container in the freezer, scraping a la a granita every half an hour for about 1 hour. You don’t want it to freeze solid at all – after your second “scraping” you should be able to just give it a minute or so on the counter to soften a bit, and then mix it up into an “icee” consistency by hand. Blend in the blender if you deem it necessary Enjoy! It gets creamer as you let it thaw, FYI.
- Vanilla Frapp: Add 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Chocolate Frapp: Add 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1 tsp. cocoa powder
- Chocolate Chip Frapp: Same as the above plus 2 tsp. chocolate chips
- Maple Cinnamon: Add 1/2 tsp. each vanilla and maple extracts, plus 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Matcha: Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp. matcha powder
- Mocha Frapp: Same as chocolate, plus 1 tbsp. instant espresso powder/2 shots of espresso
- Mocha Coconut Frapp: Same as mocha, plus 1/4 tsp. coconut extract
- And so many more!
