Starbucks Has Been Testing Out Healthier Frappucinos!

Starbucks is testing out healthier versions on their Frappuccinos!

Frappuccino's use to drive customer's to Starbucks, but as the unique and fun flavors came out, the higher the calories went. Now, they're trying to win back Frappuccino customers with heatheir recipes. 

They already offer 'skinny' versions of their Frappuccinos with non-fat milk and sugar-free syrups, which make for a lighter, not so sugary taste. What they're trying to do is keep the same flavors, just with not as much sugar.

They've been conducting this test over a year in 600 store across California, Missouri and Rhode Island.

The new frappucino recipe contains fewer calories and less sugar: a 16-ounce caramel variety contains 370 calories instead of 420, and includes 49 grams of sugar instead of 67 grams.

“Customers are responding positively,” said a company representative. “Which is why we’re continuing to test it.”

The new recipes are part of Starbucks’ effort to reduce sugar in its indulgent beverages, like frappuccinos, by 25 percent by 2020.
