Starting today, you can grab yourself a Starbucks blended cold brew with zero animal products and loads of plant-protein. . The new vegan smoothies come in two flavors: almond and cacao.

In addition to cold brew coffee, the protein blended drinks are made with non-dairy milk and plant-based proteins. A grande (16 oz) sized Protein Cold Brew tops out at 270 calories and costs $5.95. According to Starbucks, the beverage was “inspired by our customers‚Äô love for Starbucks Cold Brew and a growing interest in plant-based proteins.”

The Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew is made with almond milk, plant-based protein, almond butter, Banana Date Fruit Blend and ice. A grande size contains 12 grams of protein.

The Cacao Protein Blended Cold Brew also includes plant-based protein, Banana Date Fruit Blend and ice, but is made with coconut milk and cacao powder. A grande packs 10 grams of protein.

If you want to customize your drink, you can swap a whole banana for the Banana Date Fruit Blend and adjust the amount of almond butter or cacao powder (or even add a little bit of both!).  You can also add an extra packet of plant-based protein or additional shot(s) of espresso.
