Beginning Tuesday, June 20, Starbucks will debut two new limited-time frappuccino blended crème beverages featuring summer fruit flavors.
The Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino blended Crème beverage is a mango frappuccino blended crème poured over a strawberry and prickly pear fruit puree which also features subtle notes of hibiscus, passionfruit, and lime.
“Prickly pear has a similar taste to tropical melon and berry, and we found that it pairs really well with strawberries,” says Jennica Robinson from the Starbucks beverage development team. “This Frappuccino is made without whipped cream, so the fruit flavors and bright colors really shine through.”
The Mango Pineapple Frappuccino blended Crème beverage is a mango frappuccino blended crème poured over a mango-pineapple puree, which features juicy mango, pineapple, and a hint of lime. It is finished with another layer of mango pineapple puree for additional fruit flavor.
“The mouthwatering fruit puree forms ribbons of bright color throughout the frappuccino, creating creamy and fruity layers of flavor as you sip the beverage,” says Robinson.
