It’s been 15 years since the first Starbucks soy latte (and soy chai tea latte and soy cappuccino) was served. The company launched its first dairy alternative in 2004 just as plant-based milks were starting to gain in popularity.

Starbucks added coconutmilk to its lineup in 2015 and almondmilk in 2016. The company’s Research & Development team also began creating new beverages to highlight the flavors of the non-dairy milks like Coconutmilk Mocha Macchiato and Horchata Almondmilk Frappuccino® blended beverage.

Now, the first new Starbucks beverages of the decade feature these plant-based milk alternatives with the arrival of the Almondmilk Honey Flat White and Coconutmilk Latte. The beverages join the permanent menu in stores in the United States and Canada as part of the new winter food and beverage lineup. This also marks the regional introduction of oatmilk as a new non-dairy option as the Oatmilk Honey Latte arrives in select U.S. markets in the Midwest.

The keto diet trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down – in fact, it’s projected to grow even more over the next five years1. Smoothie King – the world’s leading smoothie brand inspiring guests to live a healthy and active lifestyle – is the first smoothie chain to answer the need of carb-conscious guests who are seeking a keto-friendly blend with the launch of new Keto Champ smoothies.

Keto Champ™ smoothies are blended with high-fat, high-protein ingredients like almond butter, collagen MCT blend, cocoa and almond milk, and contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. With less than 10-net carbs per 20 oz. serving, Keto Champ smoothies support the health and wellness journey of guests following the ketogenic diet.

Available in two tasty blends, Keto Champ smoothies contain high protein and fats that help to curb cravings and leave guests feeling fuller longer. They are also an excellent source of fiber and calcium, and a good source of iron:

Smoothie King® Keto Champ Berry: Blended to perfection with wild blueberries, whole raspberries, almond milk, almond butter, 100 % cocoa and Smoothie King’s keto protein blend, the Keto Champ Berry contains nine grams of net carbs per 20 oz. serving, with 31 grams of fat and no added sugar.
