National chain Peets Coffee & Tea introduces the first-ever vegan whipped cream available at a major coffeehouse.

Popular nationwide coffee chain Peets Coffee & Tea has introduced a first-of-its-kind, housemade, vegan whipped cream as a permanent menu addition to all of its 236 stores. Launched this summer as part of the €œCoffee Meets Coconut€ campaign, the whipped cream is made with just KARA coconut cream and simple syrup. €œIts been a big hit so far, very popular,€ a Peets company spokesperson told VegNews. The coconut whipped cream€”available to top any beverage for an additional 35¢€”is being offered along with three new veganizeable beverages including the Coconut Crème Latte (espresso, non-dairy milk, coconut syrup, and melted coconut cream), Coconut Solstice Tea (Summer Solstice Black Iced Tea with coconut syrup and non-dairy milk), and the Coconut Crème Javiva (iced blended beverage made with coffee, coconut syrup, non-dairy milk, and topped by default with coconut whipped cream). The Coconut Crème Javiva is available for a special price during a Javiva Happy Hour from 12pm to 5pm every Thursday through August 25. In similar plant-based coffeehouse news, Starbucks announced this week plans to serve almond milk at all US stores beginning in September.
