Starbucks Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte

  • A Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte is an upside down latte that’s a blend of vanilla bean powder and coconutmilk. Rich shots of Starbucks signature espresso are poured on top. It’s similar to a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato with the milk in the cup first, followed by espresso on top.
  • To make an Iced Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte, the baristas shake vanilla powder, milk and ice together and then pour shots of espresso on top. Like all Starbucks lattes, the hot version comes with steamed milk with a light layer of foam.
  • This latte is made with all dairy-free ingredients, however Starbucks does not guarantee it since they have shared equipment. Here’s a list of more dairy-free Starbucks drinks you can order.
  • This drink first appeared on Starbucks summer 2018 menu. Although it’s not listed on the official menu today, you still can order the exact same drink.

How to Order this Latte

Foundation Drink: The best drink to order and customize is a Caffè Latte, not a Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte. This is because it takes one less step to customize and winds up costing a little less.

Customizations: Order this drink upside down and substitute the 2% milk for coconutmilk. Finally, ask for vanilla bean powder. If you’re ordering an iced latte ask the barista to shake the vanilla bean powder, milk and ice.

This drink can be ordered with the Starbucks app or in-person from a barista. Here’s how.

Questions You May Have

Can I still order a vanilla bean coconut milk latte from Starbucks?

Vanilla bean flavored lattes made with coconutmilk first appeared on the 2018 Starbucks summer menu. Although the drink is no longer listed on the official menu, it’s still possible to order it since Starbucks always has its ingredients on-hand.

Is a vanilla bean coconut milk latte sweet?

Starbucks vanilla bean powder, mainly used for vanilla bean frappuccinos, contains sugar. Additionally, coconut milk at Starbucks has sugar listed as an ingredient. To me, the vanilla bean coconut milk latte doesn’t taste quite as sweet as lattes flavored with sweetened syrup. As far as sugar content goes, a grande iced version of this custom latte has 21 g of sugar, whereas a Starbucks blonde vanilla latte has 28 g of sugar.
