Starbucks Is Testing Vegan Whipped Cream at Two Seattle Locations

We’re crossing our fingers it launches nationwide!

Following Starbucks’ launch of Oatly oat milk and a few vegan-friendly beverages and snacks, the national coffee chain is taking another step toward a more vegan-friendly menu. This fall, Starbucks is testing vegan whipped cream at two Seattle locations.

Starbucks’ Lentil-Based Whipped Cream

In efforts to expand their plant-based offerings and reduce their carbon footprint, the national coffee chain debuted lentil-based whipped cream at two locations in the Seattle area. The first test location is at 1350 156th Ave, NE Bellevue, WA 98007. The second test location has been kept under wraps by Starbucks but rumor has it, it’s somewhere in Renton, Washington. If all goes well, the creamy vegan topping will hopefully roll out at coffee shops nationwide!

Vegan Options at Starbucks

If you want to pay a visit to your local Starbucks before the non-dairy whipped cream is available, there are still several vegan items to enjoy! In general, most beverages can be made vegan when you sub non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, oat, or soy) and avoid regular whipped cream, java chips, protein powder, caramel drizzle, pumpkin spice sauce, and cinnamon dolce topping. Some of our favorite vegan options at Starbucks include the new Apple Crisp Macchiato, Matcha Lemonade, and Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso.

In terms of food, most Starbucks stores stock the Chickpea Bites & Avocado Protein Box, a grab-and-go snack box containing chickpea bites, snap peas, mini carrots, dried cranberry & nut mix, and avocado spread. Vegans can also order classic or blueberry oatmeal as well as plain, sprouted grain, or multigrain bagels. Depending on the location, you may be able to find additional vegan-friendly bars, chips, spreads, and other snacks near the register.
