Nationwide coffee chain Costa has launched a new vegan wrap - which is available now.

The Chipotle Bean & Butternut Squash Wrap is also gluten-free and low calorie.

It joins the brand's Oaty Bake and Tomato and Basil Soup as well as a range of snacks and drinks that are suitable for vegans.

'Mexican flavor'

A spokesperson for the brand told Plant Based News: "At less than 300 calories the wrap is a feast for the stomach as well as the eyes.

"A soft wrap filled with a sweet and smoky chipotle chilli relish, roasted butternut squash, fresh spinach leaves and red onion with sweetcorn, black turtle beans and chopped coriander, it's a Mexican flavor explosion."

Demand

The wrap is the latest plant-based addition to Costa's line-up, which includes coconut milk - added due to customer demand.

Speaking about the milk, Russell Braterman, Global Innovations Director at Costa, said: "Opting for dairy-free alternatives and natural flavours are growing trends and coconut is becoming more and more popular.

"Coconut milk complements coffee perfectly and offers a fantastic alternative choice for our customers. "
