Even though we *know* Starbucks doesn’t carry almond milk, we just can’t not ask for it EVERY TIME. It’s like we block out the fact that almond milk doesn’t exist in the world of Starbucks, and instead have to settle with soy milk, coconut milk or, you know, regular milk.

But, you guys. It finally exists. Almond milk has made it onto the Starbucks menu.

Starting September 6th, almond milk will be available in more than 4,600 Starbucks stores around the U.S., Starbucks announced in a press release.

“We created our own almondmilk recipe to complement our hot, iced and Frappuccino blended beverages,” said Yoke Wong, manager on Starbucks beverage R&D team. “It was designed so that when steamed, it creates a rich foam for hot beverages and is delicious and creamy when served in cold beverages.”

Starbucks decided to offer the dairy-free alternative after getting feedback from customers via its My Starbucks Idea platform. With so many Americans drinking non-dairy milk, this accommodating move is definitely one we love.
