Tips for Customizing Frappuccino Blended Beverages
1. Request nonfat milk, coconut milk or soy: Choose nonfat milk for a beverage that is lower in calories and fat. Don’t drink milk? Customize your beverage with soy or coconut milk.
2. Choose the “light” option: By choosing light, your beverage will have at least 33 percent few calories that the regular Frappuccino® blended beverages.
3. Select sugar-free syrup: Add a sugar-free syrup to any Frappuccino® blended beverage for great flavor without added calories or sugar. Starbucks offers sugar-free syrups in several flavors: Vanilla, Caramel, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Dolce.
4. Ask for a little whipped cream or no whip: Starbucks baristas are happy to meet your request so you can still enjoy a touch of whipped cream on your Frappuccino® blended beverage.
