We asked for some of the best ways to reduce calories and get our fix at the same time. So here are our suggestions to personalize your However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage for a lighter beverage:

  • Request nonfat milk or soy

    For the first time ever, you can select which milk is part of your However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage. Choose nonfat milk for a beverage that is lower in calories and fat. 

    Don’t drink milk? Now you can ask your barista to customize your Frappuccino Blended Beverage with soy milk for a non-dairy treat.  

  • Choose the ‘light’ option

    By choosing ‘Light’, your beverage will have at least 33% 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.

    Calorie counts  for a ‘light’ Frappuccino Blended Beverage have dropped even lower with the new However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage.  For example, a Tall Mocha Light Frappuccino Blended Beverage (no whip) is just 100 calories, compared to a Tall Mocha Frappuccino (no whip) at 200 calories – a calorie savings of almost 50%!

  • Ask for more coffee

    With the new However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage, now you can boost the coffee intensity of your blended beverage.  Just ask your barista to add more coffee to up the coffee flavor.

  • Select a sugar-free syrup

    Add a sugar-free syrup to any Frappuccino blended beverage for flavor without any added calories or sugar.  Starbucks offers sugar-free syrups in several flavors: Vanilla, Caramel, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Dolce.

  • Ask for light (less) whip or no whip

    Did you know you can ask for ‘just-a-little-bit’of whip?  Starbucks baristas are happy to meet your request so you can still enjoy that pinch of whip you’ve been looking for.
