Bottled ready-to-drink coffee, especially Frappuccino, is probably the next best thing after sliced bread. Starbucks has a wide range of the same in many outlets. So, what are the best Starbucks bottled Frappuccino flavors?
I have always had a keen taste for all things sweet and creamy, and this is likely why I have to have a Starbucks frappe at least thrice a week. Seeing as I am constantly on the move, getting one in a cup is almost always inconvenient. This is why I prefer to get a bottled frappuccino since I can have it in my own comfort. One of the things I like best about Starbucks bottled frappes is the fact that they come in many flavors. In addition, they are easy to carry around, and I can have them in my fridge to take later. Here are some of the best Starbucks bottled frappuccino flavors.
If you are all about a frappuccino that is heavy on coffee and chocolate, this is likely the best drink for you. A mocha frappuccino is made by combining coffee, mocha sauce, cream, and low-fat milk. One of the things I like best about it is that it does not skimp on the caffeine, largely because the mocha sauce is made from a rich coffee brew. With this drink, you get an extra kick of caffeine that is great for mornings and after a workout. Even though it is a bottled drink, it is pretty creamy and has a nice balance of sweetness. A 13.7 oz bottle of the mocha frappuccino has 270 calories.
This is easily one of my favorite flavors to have in the fall. The fact that it is a seasonal drink makes having it a lot more delightful. Pumpkin spice frappuccino is made from milk, 2 shots of brewed espresso, a bit of canned pumpkin, pumpkin spice, whipped cream, and sweetener. Seeing as it is a seasonal drink, I will often buy a couple of bottles right before they go out of stock just so I can have some even after fall is gone. In a 9.5 oz bottle, you get 210 calories and 45 mg of caffeine.
If ever there were two flavors that were meant to go well together, they would be coffee and caramel. The buttery and silky flavor of caramel blends exceedingly well with coffee, and this is why this frappuccino is one of the most popular. This drink is made from milk, a double shot of espresso, cream, and caramel syrup. I like to have this drink on a hot afternoon, especially after being on the treadmill. It is very refreshing and gives the caffeine boost I need. The 13.7 oz bottle contains 90 mg of caffeine and 290 calories while the 9.5 oz bottle has 65 mg of caffeine and 210 calories.
This drink comes with one of the most classic Starbucks flavors. Whenever I am getting a coffee to go, I almost always get vanilla syrup because it works with almost all drinks, and I quite enjoy the flavor. The bottled vanilla frappuccino is made using low-fat milk, espresso, and cream, and it is sweetened using vanilla syrup. This drink is great for having in the morning, especially when you are not looking to have a hot drink. If you buy the 9.5 oz bottle, you get 75 mg of caffeine and 200 calories.
If you are looking to get your daily caffeine fix without wanting to get anything fancy, this is likely the best match for you. All it contains is a double shot of espresso brew, milk, cream, and sweetener. Do not, however, be mistaken. The drink has a rich creamy consistency, and the coffee is quite potent. It is a great way to kickstart your day and goes well with donuts or a croissant. A 9.5 oz bottle contains 75 mg of caffeine as well as 210 calories while the larger 13.7 oz bottle comes with 300 calories and 110 mg of caffeine.
This Starbucks bottled frappuccino combines three incredible flavors; coffee, chocolate, and coconut. The coconut flavor adds a little tropical feel to the drink, making it a great choice for a hot afternoon. The drink is made from milk, cream, roast coffee blend, mocha sauce, coconut flakes, and coconut syrup. Even though it sounds like a complex drink, the flavors manage to marry quite well, and it is quite a delight to have. If you are allergic to wheat and wheat products, however, you should stay away from the drink as it may give you an allergic reaction. The 13.7 oz bottle comes with 60 mg of caffeine and 300 calories.
If you are looking for a drink that has a richer flavor profile than the caramel frappuccino, this is likely the best match for you. Apart from the milk, espresso, caramel syrup, and cream, this drink comes with an extra ingredient which is a cold brew. In addition to the richer flavor, it also delivers more caffeine, making it a popular drink among people looking for that extra caffeine kick. It is one of my favorite bottled frappuccinos, especially when I am having a sluggish morning. Each 13.7 oz bottle of the brown butter caramel frappuccino comes with 290 calories and 95 mg of caffeine.
Vanilla Light Frappuccino
This drink makes an excellent choice for anyone looking to get the rich vanilla flavor of the vanilla frappuccino, but with fewer calories than the original drink. The vanilla light frappuccino is made with about half as many calories as the vanilla frappuccino, and this is why it is a great choice for people watching their weight or who are trying to eat and drink healthier. In a 9.5 oz bottle, there are but 100 calories while a 9.5 oz bottle of vanilla frappe comes with 200 calories. It also only has 50 mg of caffeine as compared to the 75 mg in the 9.5 oz vanilla frappe.
This drink makes an excellent choice for anyone looking to replace regular cow’s milk with a plant-based alternative. Just as its name suggests, it contains almond milk as a base instead of regular milk. The almond milk mocha frappuccino shares a recipe with the regular mocha frappuccino, but the main difference is that this particular one has almond milk. Note, however, that it may not be entirely free of dairy, largely because it contains some form of cream. You will notice that the bottle is labeled non-dairy, meaning that it may have traces of dairy. If you are allergic to dairy products, it is best that you steer clear of this one. A 9.5 oz bottle has 120 calories and 70 mg of coffee while a regular mocha frappuccino contains 190 calories and 105 mg of coffee.
Salted Dark Chocolate Frappuccino
If you are keen on trying flavors that would be deemed unconventional, you might want to try this one out. It contains dark chocolate that is rich and has a tinge of bitterness to it. In addition, salt is added, and this introduces a new flavor profile, allowing you to experience several flavor layers as you drink your frappe. This drink is made by combining whole milk, salted dark chocolate, cream, xanthan gum, and chocolate syrup. From the recipe, you can tell that it has a heavy chocolate flavor that works really well with the coffee. The cream adds a silkiness to the drink which makes it a delectable beverage to have on a hot summer afternoon.
Just like the almond milk mocha frappe, this drink makes an excellent choice for anyone looking to restrict their dairy intake. The main difference between the almond milk vanilla frappe and almond milk mocha frappe is the flavor profiles. The former has vanilla syrup in its recipe in place of mocha sauce. The vanilla flavor blends exceedingly well with the almond milk, creating a lively earthy flavor. The fact that it is a nut milk-based drink means that it comes with fewer calories, making it a better alternative to have as compared to the regular vanilla frappuccino that is made with whole milk. A 13.7 oz bottle of this drink contains 105 mg of caffeine and 180 calories.
This drink is one of the latest additions to the list of Starbucks bottled frappuccino drinks. It is a delectable beverage that is quickly gaining traction. The chocolate churro frappuccino is inspired by dessert, and it combines chocolate and cinnamon flavors. It is, in fact, one of the few bottled drinks with spice in it. This drink’s flavor is inspired by the Spanish Churro Donuts which are rolled in a mix of sugar and cinnamon. A 13.7 oz bottle of this drink contains 115 mg of caffeine and 280 calories.
Also a new addition to the Starbucks range of frappuccinos, this drink comes with an interesting flavor profile. It is inspired by an Italian dessert, and it contains one of the highest calorie counts on this list. The drink is made by combining steamed whole milk with coffee (espresso), cream, and a caramel Brulée sauce. As expected, it comes with a touch of exotic flavors which make it a great drink for when you are looking for something that is more than ordinary. Flavorful as it is, a 13.7 oz bottle of this drink comes with 310 calories, making it unsuitable for anyone trying to lose some weight or keep fit.
This drink is also inspired by a popular Italian dessert – tiramisu. One of the things that stand out the most about it is that it packs layer after layer of flavor and that it is also a very sweet drink. For this reason, it is popular among people with a sweet tooth. The drink is made by combining a regular coffee frappuccino, one pump of toffee nut syrup, one pump of hazelnut syrup, one pump of mocha syrup, one pump of caramel flan syrup, one espresso shot affogato, mocha drizzle, caramel flan sauce, and cream. It is, quite literally, dessert in a bottle. Needless to say, it is a bit heavy on the calorie count, and a 13.7 oz bottle of the same comes with 310 calories.
This is essentially a drink that could easily pass for comfort ‘food’. It combines some of the best holiday flavors for you to have at any time of year. The s’mores frappuccino is made by combining whole milk, ice cream, coffee, and cream. For the characteristic s’mores flavor, marshmallow flavor, chocolate, and honey graham are added. As you would expect, this drink has a high number of calories, and a 13.7 oz bottle of the same contains 290 calories.
Do Starbucks bottled frappuccinos have caffeine?

How are you supposed to drink a Starbucks Frappuccino bottle?
There are three main ways to drink your Starbucks Frappuccino bottle;
- You can pour the drink into a cup over ice and drink from the same.
- Pour the frappuccino into a blender with ice and blend the mixture if you want a drink that is thicker in consistency and a lot less sweet. Starbucks bottled frappuccinos are usually quite sweet and this would be a great way of reducing the sweetness for better palatability.
- Chill the drink in the fridge for a couple of hours and enjoy with a straw, or pour it into a glass if you prefer.
Do Starbucks bottled frappuccinos have to be refrigerated?
No, they do not have to be refrigerated, but they are best consumed chilled. If you open your frappuccino, however, make sure you refrigerate it to keep it from going bad.
Starbucks bottled frappuccinos are very convenient because you do not have to worry about going to a Starbucks outlet every day for your daily drink. You can pick a few bottles in different flavors and enjoy them at your convenience.
