Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Starbucks just introduced two new drink options for spring, and one is completely vegan - no substitutions necessary. Pull up the Starbucks app and place your mobile order for a nearly-instant caffeine rush. The two new Starbucks beverages are amplified, sweetened versions of the classic macchiato. A macchiato, in its purest form, is a shot of espresso topped with a layer of steamed milk. That\u2019s it. Starbucks\u2019 version is more of a latte\/cappuccino hybrid, in which they blend (plant-based) milk with shots of espresso, then top it with foam (and a few sweet syrups). Starbucks\u2019 new line of macchiatos includes a Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato and an Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato. The hazelnut variety is reminiscent of vegan Nutella. The drink obtains this chocolately-hazelnut fusion from the company\u2019s special Sumatran coconut milk, marked with espresso, and sweetened with hazelnut syrup. The beverage is topped with a frothy coconut milk cloud and finished with a mocha drizzle, generously applied in a checkerboard design. And yes, it is vegan, even the drizzle. For those experiencing warmer climates, the Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato will provide a jolt of sweet relief - with a few vegan alterations. This beverage has graced the Starbucks menu before, but only for a limited time. The drink is \u2018horchata-inspired,\u2019 according to the company, and features an iced blend of almond milk, espresso, and cinnamon dolce syrup. Due to the iced component, the foamed milk layer is forgone, replaced by a cross-hatch of thick caramel drizzle and a sprinkling of cinnamon dolce topping. To remain dairy-free, skip the caramel drizzle and topping; both contain butter. For an extra flavor kick, help yourself to the cinnamon shaker on the self-serve milk and sugar bar. Although neither of these beverages contains dairy (with the proper substitutions), Starbucks does caution that it cannot guarantee the complete elimination of cross-contamination, as all orders are prepared and stored with shared equipment.
