If you’re in the mood for a strawberry Frappuccino but are concerned with your caffeine intake, you’re probably wondering, “Does Starbucks strawberry Frappuccino have caffeine?”
The Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino falls under the caffeine-free Starbucks Frappuccinos since none of the ingredients used is caffeinated. I have a heightened sensitivity to caffeine, which means I experience negative side effects from taking anything caffeinated. This is caffeine sensitivity but not an allergy. However, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying my Starbucks Frappuccinos. In this article, I am sharing everything about my favourite Starbucks frappuccino, the Starbucks strawberry Frappuccino. Keep reading to learn how you can order the decaf version of this Frappuccino.
What is in a strawberry Frappuccino at Starbucks?
The main components of a Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino are crème Frappuccino syrup, ice, strawberry puree sauce and syrup and whole milk. The topping of this beverage is vanilla whipped cream. Although, you can customize your strawberry Frappuccino by choosing your favourite milk instead of whole milk. As mentioned earlier, you can also ask for decaf espresso shots instead of coffee Frappuccino syrup if you prefer a caffeine-free beverage.
You can also do away with the whipped cream if that’s not your liking. The crème Frappuccino used has natural flavours, cream base, milk and ice, therefore, it is non-caffeinated.
Do all frappuccinos at Starbucks have caffeine?
No. Not all frappuccinos at Starbucks are caffeinated. Some frappuccinos have caffeine, others don’t and the amount of caffeine in each beverage varies. The amount of caffeine also differs depending on the Frappuccino size. Although the frappuccinos are caffeinated, they are not the most-caffeinated beverages at Starbucks.
The Crème Frappuccinos at Starbucks are caffeine-free. Note that the main source of caffeine is coffee, chocolate and tea and most Starbucks crème frappuccinos lack these three elements.
The only crème frappuccinos with caffeine at Starbucks are the chai tea crème Frappuccino and matcha crème Frappuccino. Some of the frappuccinos with very little caffeine include the Chocolate Cookie Crumble Crème Frappuccino with 15mg of caffeine in a grande size, the Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino with 15mg of caffeine in a grande size and the Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino with just 10mg of caffeine in a grande size.
How do you ask for a decaf strawberry Frappuccino from Starbucks?
To ask for a Starbucks decaf strawberry Frappuccino, simply request the barista for decaf espresso shots instead of the caffeinated coffee Frappuccino syrup. Decaf espresso is a common substitute for caffeine in a lot of Starbucks beverages. You hardly ever notice the difference between a beverage with decaf espresso shots and a beverage with coffee-based syrup or genuine espresso.
Simply ask your barista for a Strawberry Crème Frappuccino but with espresso shots, and they’ll know you want the decaf version of the Frappuccino.
