Another day, another wild Starbucks concoction. This time, Starbucks rolled out a Tie-Dye Frappuccino, which is so on trend with everything being splashed with color these days. Naturally, I ran out at 8 a.m. to get one because I don't ever miss a Starbucks Frappuccino. As a self-proclaimed Frappuccino expert, I can confidently say that this might be my favorite.
The Tie-Dye Frappuccino has a distinctly fruity flavor — and no coffee. It starts with a blended crème base that's combined with turmeric, red beet, and spirulina to naturally create those vibrant yellow, red, and blue swirled hues. The drink is topped with both vanilla whipped cream and a dash of yellow, red, and blue powder.
As with all of Starbucks's fun Frappuccinos, it's a labor of love to create in the store because it takes a little work, but my barista whipped this up with an excited smile on her face this morning, and the vibrant colors are proof enough. My Frappuccino was heavy on the yellow coloring with blues, reds, and purples and a perfect smattering of all the colors on top of the whipped cream. The fruit flavor screams creamy banana to me, but it's not overpowering like some banana flavor can be. It is, however, pretty sweet and rich, which is to be expected with a creation like this. However, you can always customize it with a different milk or no whipped cream if you prefer.
If you're a fan of anything banana flavored, especially banana candies, I highly recommend the Tie-Dye Frappuccino. They're only available while supplies last, starting today at stores in the US and Canada.
