Starbuck’s Just Put The Rumored Summer Fruit Frappuccinos On Their Official Menu

We earlier reported on the rumors of these refreshing new Frappuccinos that broke over the weekend, and we now have official confirmation from Starbucks USA that they’re real and on the menu starting TODAY.

For those of you who haven’t heard of them yet, Starbucks has decided to drop two fruity new Frapps on us just in time for the summer solstice. Each contains flavors you’d expect to find with summer, such as the lime, hibiscus, and passionfruit notes found in the Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino or the tropical essence of the Mango Pineapple Frappuccino.

Each of the frozen drinks is built the same way: layers of fruit puree on the bottom and top, separated by a mango creme Frappuccino base. Despite all the sugar from the fruit purees and the blended creme, these Frappuccinos are actually some of the healthiest on the Starbucks menu. A grande size of each consists of 260 calories, topping only the Coffee (240 calories) and Espresso Frappuccinos (230 calories) in total energy consumed per drink.

Of course, the above fact comes with the caveat that the new drinks are loaded with sugar, containing 49-50 grams of it apiece. Nonetheless, both the Berry Prickly Pear and Mango Pineapple Frappuccinos are lower-calorie ways to enjoy Starbucks drinks while taking in the summer vibes.

They’re only going to be available for a limited time, though, so I’d rush in to try these refreshing new Frappuccinos before both of them disappear.

Gorgeous Prickly Pear And Mango Pineapple Frappuccinos Might Be Next At Starbucks [RUMOR]

Summer may just be starting for all of us, but the heated raced for Starbucks to top their Pink Drink and Unicorn Frappuccinos is already on. According to some charmingly pesky foodies in Nevada, Starbucks is readying to launch new fruit-loaded Frappuccinos just in time for some serious summer heatwaves.

First posted and discussed by our Foodbeast tip-liners @fatclosetgirl and @ryusauce, we now have confirmation from a Starbucks location and multiple baristas that these two new Frappuccinos – the Prickly Pear Frappuccino and the Pineapple Mango Frappuccino – will be dropping nationwide starting Tuesday, June 20th.

Both frappuccinos appear to be part of an inaugural lineup called “Colors of Summer,” and will be available for a limited time once they do launch. Apparently, each consists of a mango creme frappuccino base with a special fruit puree (mango pineapple or berry and prickly pear) at the bottom and top of the blended drink. They normally don’t come with the usual whipped cream topping, but you can ask for it, according to some baristas on Reddit.

It’s fitting that these new frappes are the first to drop in the new set, because man, do they look gorgeous. I’m gonna have a hard time deciding which one to try first, that’s for sure.

We have reached out to Starbucks USA regarding the new frappuccinos to get more details and confirm what we’ve heard through the grapevine already, so stay tuned here for updates as we receive them.
