"[Starbucks Almondmilk] was designed so that when steamed, it creates a rich foam for hot beverages and is delicious and creamy when served in cold beverages," Yoke Wong, manager on Starbucks beverage R&D team, said in a press release. "The almond butter in our almondmilk adds body and complements the roasty notes of espresso. Because it’s unflavored, customers can customize to their taste preferences.”
Starbucks first introduced soy milk at its stores back in 2004, followed by Starbucks Coconutmilk just last year. The latter dairy alternative is one of the key ingredients in the the so-called Pink Drink secret menu item that quickly took over Instagram a couple months ago. Imagine what the Rainbow Drink slurping maniacs will create with almond milk, or, you know, just wait till it's all over your feed in a few weeks.
