Sure, there’s still snow on the ground but spring is closer than you think (promise!) and that means it’s time to start thinking about switching up your Starbucks order too. Soon, the warm outside temps will make carrying your beloved flat white too uncomfortable and you’ll have to switch to your favorite cold drink. Unless of course, you’re weird like me and prefer to drink ice-cold beverages year-round. So what will you be ordering? Your usual venti cold brew? Or are you looking to try something new this year? If you are, you’re in luck because Starbucks just released their new spring menu and it’s wildly delicious and colorful.
Last year, Starbucks introduced the Cloud Macchiato which came in two flavors — caramel and cinnamon. This year, Starbuck is kicking things up a notch by adding not one, not two, but three new drinks to its spring menu and two of them are totally dairy-free.
First, the Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink. It’s made with matcha green tea and is shaken with flavors of pineapple and ginger along with coconut milk and poured over ice. Basically it’s a Hawaiian vacation in a cup.
Next, we have the Iced Golden Ginger Drink. This warm-weather beverage features ginger, pineapple and turmeric flavors and is shaken with coconut milk and poured over ice. If you’re a fan of the increasingly popular golden latte or golden milk, you’ll probably love this fruity version.
The third drink to join Starbucks’ 2020 spring menu is a twist on one of our favorites and it’s called the Nitro Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam. It’s the same Nitro Cold Brew you already love but this one is topped with salted honey cold foam and a strike of toasted honey.
Nitro Cold Brews must be pretty popular because just last week, Starbucks announced they are releasing ready-to-drink versions of their Nitro Cold Brew that will be sold in stores. Although those don’t come with the toasted honey and I don’t know if that’s something I want to give up.
New drinks aren’t the only things hitting Starbucks’ spring menu — there are new food items too. Starbucks is adding a Bacon, Sausage & Egg Wrap and a Southwest Veggie Wrap. The Bacon, Sausage & Egg Wrap has —you guessed it — eggs, bacon and sausage, but it also comes with cheddar cheese and sous-vide potatoes wrapped in a flour tortilla. The Southwest Veggie Wrap is an excellent meat-free option and combines cage-free scrambled eggs, black beans, sous vide potatoes, cotija cheese, pico de gallo, and jalapeno cream cheese.
All of these items are available at Starbucks locations beginning today.
