Starbucks is adding almond milk

 

I’m from Seattle, so it goes hand-in-hand that I love coffee, and most notably Starbucks. It’s no surprise that I have a sweet tooth, and occasionally indulge in one of those sugary treats. However, recently Starbucks has made some changes to their menu. Most notably, Starbucks has added almond milk and coconut milk.

Prior to these additions, I always ordered my Starbucks Breve (with cream). However, there are now more PALEO choices at Starbucks!!

The best thing about coconut milk and almond milk is that they are naturally sweet. This is important, since there are NO syrups that are currently approved for Paleo.

So, what are some Starbucks options and still stay on Paleo:

Hot Drinks:

  • Coffee, of course
  • Hot tea
  • Espresso or American (espresso and water)
  • Latte
    • Breve (with Cream)
    • Almond Milk
    • Coconut Milk

Cold Drinks:

  • Unsweetened iced tea
  • Iced coffee
    • Breve (with Cream)
    • Almond Milk
    • Coconut Milk

Stay Away From:

Syrups, even sugar-free syrups (they have unnatural sweeteners and are heavily processed)

What I hope Starbucks Adds:

Stevia – a Paleo-approved sweetener

Some Starbucks Ideas:

  1. Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk (bring a little Stevia to sweeten)
  2. Latte with Almond Milk with added cinnamon
  3. Iced Tea with Coconut Milk – Yum!

I looked on the Starbucks website, and do not see the coconut milk or almond milk in their nutritional information:

Hopefully they update this soon so we know exactly what we are putting into our bodies!
