Order up! The Vegan Oat Milk Latte from Pop & Bottle is our chilled drink of choice. The Classic Oat Milk Latte and Mocha Oat Milk Latte—both vegan-friendly and organic—are available for purchase in a convenient pack of 12 (6 cans of each flavor) and are shelf-stable! How can these be any more perfect? Well, because Pop & Bottle uses dates for sweetening and throws in beneficial superfoods such as maca, ashwagandha, and coffee cherry, that’s how. Pro tip: Chill your flavor of choice for 15 minutes, give it a shake, and sip casually to cool off in the summer heat.
