If you’re anything like me, you love to get a fun drink at Starbucks! When I became vegan, it changed what I could get at Starbucks, and I didn’t know what the vegan drinks were. Most of the drinks I got had milk in them, or other milk products.

I had to change what I got, but I love my current selection of drinks more than my old non-vegan drinks. I wanted to share what I get now, so I compiled a list of my favorite vegan drinks at Starbucks!

1. The Pink Drink

This drink is a Strawberry Acai Refresher (strawberry, passion fruit, acai, and green coffee extract) with coconut milk and freeze-dried strawberries. This drink is super refreshing and has some caffeine. A grande size is 140 calories and has 50mg of caffeine. You can order this drink by just saying you want the Pink Drink.

2. The Purple Drink

The purple and pink drinks are my absolute favorite drinks! The purple one isn’t as easy to order though. Tell the barista you want a Passion Tea with soy milk instead of water, and add classic and vanilla syrup. They say that it already comes with the classic syrup, but I’ve noticed that if I don’t order it that way, it isn’t sweet at all.

The Iced Passion Tango Tea that is the base for this drink is an infusion of hibiscus, lemongrass, and apple. Since this isn’t a normal menu item, there aren’t really nutrition facts for it. It does not appear to have caffeine though.

3. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

I fell in love with this drink when they first rolled it out while I was in college. It’s perfect for a hot summer day. This drink has fruit juice, green coffee extract, and freeze-dried blackberries shaken together. A grande size has 70 calories and 45-50mg of caffeine.

4. Toffee Almond Hot Chocolate

I first saw this drink advertised around Christmas and it was so much better than I was expecting! It has almond milk (instead of dairy milk), mocha sauce, and toffee nut flavoring. Make sure you order without whipped cream for it to be vegan. I’m hoping that one day Starbucks will have a vegan whipped cream option, but for now, no whip.

This drink isn’t on their menu anymore, but they still have everything to make it. Since this isn’t on their menu, I can’t see nutrition facts for it, but I can for just an almond milk hot chocolate without the toffee syrup. Without the toffee, a grande of this drink is 240 calories and has 25mg of caffeine.

5. Iced Passion Tango Tea Lemonade

This drink has the same tea as the purple drink. All it has in it is the tea, lemonade, and sweetener. It’s much more light than the other drinks I’ve talked about. I’ve also had it without the lemonade, but the lemonade is the way to go. A grande has 90 calories and no caffeine.

6. Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino with Soy Milk

This drink can be made vegan using soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk. I’ve found that the soy milk makes it taste the creamiest. Almond milk makes it feel more water-based. Also, make sure you don’t get whipped cream on this one. This drink doesn’t have caffeine, and Starbuck’s website doesn’t have nutritional info unless you want it made with whole milk.

7. Dragon Drink

The dragon drink has a mango and dragon fruit refresher base with freeze-dried dragon fruit bits and is mixed with coconut milk. Kevin Smith from Buzzfeed recommends this and calls it the DragonDrink. A size grande of this drink has 45-55mg of caffeine and has no artificial colors.

8. Violet Drink

The Violet Drink is the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher mixed with coconut milk. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this until recently! A grande has 110 calories and 45mg of caffeine. This drink is pretty refreshing and fun to get in the summer. It’s not my absolute favorite drink they have, but it’s one of their great vegan options and I do like to mix up what my order is.

9. Peach Green Tea Lemonade

The Peach Green Tea Lemonade has been a favorite of mine and Adam’s for many years. It’s just as it sounds, it has peach flavored juice blend, green tea, lemonade, and liquid cane sugar. A size grande has 25mg of caffeine in it.

10. Blended Strawberry Lemonade

The Blended Strawberry Lemonade is super refreshing in the summer. It is strawberry lemonade and ice blended together. Pretty simple and super delicious! I can’t find any nutrition facts about it on Starbucks website. They’re advertising it for the summer though, so I think they might update the website soon.

11. Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink

This is a fun summer drink that is so refreshing and delicious. It’s a new fave of mine since I’ve always loved guava flavored things! It has guava juice, passionfruit, pineapple, ginger, and coconut milk. This drink does not have caffeine in it.

12. Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with Toffee

To make the vanilla bean frappuccino vegan you’ll want to switch out the milk for a plant-based one and take off the whipped cream. I prefer mine with soy milk. I also love to add the toffee nut syrup to it. It tastes delicious! This drink has no caffeine in it.

13. Star Drink

The star drink has starfruit and kiwi juice mixed with coconut milk. It also has freeze dried kiwi bits in it. A grande has 45mg of caffeine in it.

  • Salted caramel mocha ordered with dairy milk, no whipped cream, no caramel drizzle
