SEATTLE, 2015-7-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Starbucks is bringing back a customer favorite, the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® blended beverage. It’ll available beginning today (July 23) in participating U.S and Canada Starbucks stores while supplies last.
Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® blended beverage is made with Starbucks signature Frappuccino® Roast coffee blended with mocha sauce, coconut syrup, milk, and ice, and then topped with whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and toasted coconut flakes.
For those times when customers are unable to get to a Starbucks store for the handcrafted beverage, the new bottled Frappuccino® Mocha Coconut, which offers a rich chocolaty taste with the flavor of sweet coconut perfectly blended with cool creamy milk and Starbucks® coffee, is available year-round where groceries are sold.
Barista 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 milk.
2. Choose the “light” option, which is available with the Mocha Coconut: By choosing light, your beverage will have at least 33 percent fewer calories than the regular Frappuccino® blended beverages. You can choose the light option for these flavors: Coffee, Caramel, Mocha, Java Chip and Café Vanilla.
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. For the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino, customers can reduce sugar by requesting the Skinny Mocha syrup.
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.
