In case the racks of your local mall weren’t enough indication that tie-dye is taking over this Summer, Starbucks just brought the nostalgic trend into the foodie spotlight by releasing a freakin’ Tie-Dye Frappuccino! Now available at Starbucks stores across the US and Canada, the limited-edition concoction just might be the coffee chain’s most vibrant, ‘gram-worthy beverage yet (yes, even more than the famed Unicorn Frappuccino that took social media by storm two years ago).
The Tie-Dye Frappuccino 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. With a tropical banana-like flavor that practically screams Summer, the drink is topped with both vanilla whipped cream and a dash of yellow, red, and blue powder. Sure, it may not give you a caffeine kick because there’s no coffee on the ingredient list, but it’ll definitely satisfy your sweet tooth, as it’s pretty loaded with sugar.
As with all other Starbucks drinks, the Tie-Dye Frappe is totally customizable. Prefer soy or coconut milk instead of the standard whole milk? Just tell your barista. Don’t want whipped cream or multicolored powder on top? Your wish is Starbucks’s command. Wanna add a shot of espresso or flavored syrup? As strange as it may taste, your barista will oblige. The Tie-Dye Frappuccino is only available while supplies last, and considering how darn mesmerizing it is, we’re predicting those supplies will run out pretty darn quick.
Stay up to date with all things Cincy Weekend!
