What is a Frappuccino?

Frappuccinos are sweet, frozen drinks made in a blender.

It’s a drink that’s exclusive to Starbucks and the Frappuccino name comes from combining the words “frappe” and “cappuccino.”

Tips for Ordering Frappuccinos

Drink sizes

Frappuccinos come in tall (12 ounces), grande (16 ounces), and venti (24 ounces) sizes.

Starbucks has smaller (short at 8 ounces) and bigger cups (trenta at 30 ounces), but the Frappuccinos can only be ordered in those 3 drink sizes.

There isn’t a sugar-free option

All Frappuccinos are made with a Frappuccino syrup that gives the drink a smooth, milkshake-like consistency.

The syrup is made with sugar so there’s no way to order a sugar-free Frappuccino.

Caffeine, decaf, and no caffeine options

Almost every Frappuccino has a coffee version and a créme based version (no coffee). The coffee version can be ordered decaf.

Add more caffeine

To add extra caffeine to your Frappuccino, get it with extra pumps of Frappuccino Roast (Starbucks instant coffee mix) or by adding espresso.

Dairy-free

Swap out the milk with a plant-based milk like soy or oat and take out the whipped cream to make your Frappuccino dairy-free.

Lighten your Frappuccino

To reduce the calories, skip the whipped cream or ask for just a little. Reduce the number of pumps of syrup to cut the sweetness and calories.

All Frappuccinos are made with whole milk, so ask for it to be made with 2% milk or a non-dairy milk like almond, soy, or coconutmilk.
