Wow! Starbucks Just Added Plant-Based Food to Its Menu!

There are new items on their plant-based menu — and it's available for a limited time only!

According to food experts, plant-based food will still be trending in 2021. These plant-based foods— which are healthier alternatives to meat and processed goods— became a viral trend last year when we were told to eat healthier to strengthen our bodies given the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of its popularity, even fast-food chains like McDonald’s and Burger King have already launched their own plant-based products in 2020. Now, just in time for the new year, another big brand has added plant-based options to their menu: Starbucks Philippines! (Read: 5 Plant-Based Ingredients for Your Daily Meals)

Three new meat- and dairy-free dishes have been added to Starbucks Philippines’s menu starting this week. This is in addition to the first batch of dairy-free beverages they launched back in September, much to the joy of Starbucks lovers.

Here are the three new products that Starbucks launched recently for its plant-based food menu.

Mince rolls are perfect for those who are in a rush to go to work or those who are looking to eat something before a very important meeting. It’s because it has carbs in the form of flaky pastry crust, protein in the form of meat, and even has a sauce so it wouldn’t be too dry!

When you think of lasagna, what comes to mind first is the amount of meat and cheese it has, all in one baked-to-perfection dish. But for those who are more health-conscious, it might not be the best option. (Read: 3 Scenic Tagaytay Cafés You Should Visit Post-Pandemic)

This is why Starbucks is taking lasagna to a whole different level by making their own version of the pasta favorite and making it meat-free! Their lasagna is made from plant-based pork and dairy-free cheese, with some added Italian spices. The Starbucks Classic Lasagna is available for only P195.
