The Best Vegan Starbucks Drinks for the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! Check out these seasonal coffee creations.

During the holiday season, you can often catch us with a festive coffee drink in hand. If you’re also a holiday coffee connoisseur, we’ve got some tasty Starbucks sippers to share with you. From mochas and macchiatos to lattes and holiday brews, check out our list of the best vegan Starbucks drinks for the holidays.

Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte

‘Tis the season for festive sugar cookies—Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Lattes, that is. We’ll be the first to admit that this vegan-as-is specialty coffee is a must-try. Without customization, this featured drink contains almond milk, espresso, sugar cookie syrup, and red & green sprinkles. Make this sipper your own by ordering it hot or iced.



Peppermint Mocha

To our mint chocolate lovers—this one’s for you! Ring in the new year with a veganized Peppermint Mocha. When ordered with non-dairy milk and without whipped cream or chocolate curls, this classic becomes one of the best vegan Starbucks drinks for the holidays. This festive drink tastes excellent both hot or iced.

Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato

We aren’t sure about you, but we’ve been sipping this vegan Starbucks drink since it made its fall debut. If you ask us, this warming, apple-crisp-in-a-cup still counts as one of the best vegan Starbucks drinks for the holidays. Iced or hot, the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato is always a tasty choice.

Chestnut Praline Latte

We can’t say we’ve ever experienced chestnuts roasting on an open fire firsthand. However, the Starbucks Chestnut Praline Latte seems like a tastier choice anyway. This latte becomes one of the best vegan Starbucks drinks for the holidays when ordered with dairy-free milk and without whipped cream. Enjoy this latte hot or served over ice.

Starbucks Reserve Christmas 2022 Clover Coffee

If decked-out vegan coffee drinks really aren’t your thing, you don’t have to miss out on the festive fun. Celebrate the holidays with freshly brewed coffee. The Starbucks Reserve Christmas 2022 Clover absolutely counts as a vegan Starbucks holiday drink. Enjoy this spiced, full-bodied brew iced or hot and with or without a splash of dairy-free milk.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
