It's official! Starting June 20, Starbucks will have new Frappuccinos to brighten up any sunny day! Starbucks announced that the Berry Prickly Pear and the Mango Pineapple Frappuccino Crèmes are their latest Frappuccino creations available for this summer season. And according to Starbucks, these new Frappuccinos are just as vibrant in color as they are in taste. Let's take a look at these delicious new Frappuccino beverages!
Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino Blended Crème Beverage
The new Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino is made with a Mango Frappuccino Blended Crème base that is poured over a strawberry and prickly pear fruit puree. Although the drink tastes mostly like strawberry, there are refreshing notes of hibiscus, passionfruit, and lime. To complete the Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino, a final layer of the berry prickly pear fruit puree is added to the top.
Jennica Robinson from the Starbucks beverage development team had some great things to say about the new Starbucks Frapp.
"Prickly pear has a similar taste to tropical melon and berry, and we found that it pairs really well with strawberries,” Robinson said. "This Frappuccino is made without whipped cream, so the fruit flavors and bright colors really shine through.”
Mango Pineapple Frappuccino Blended Crème Beverage
The new Mango Pineapple Frappuccino is also made with a Mango Frappuccino Blended Crème base. Then, mango-pineapple puree is added before the base, creating a tropical mixture of flavors, featuring mango, pineapple, and a splash of lime. To complete the Mango Pineapple Frappuccino, another layer of the mango pineapple puree is added.
Robinson had more to add from the development team on this delectable mango-pineapple beverage.
“The mouthwatering fruit puree forms ribbons of bright color throughout the Frappuccino, creating creamy and fruity layers of flavor as you sip the beverage,” Robinson said.
