Starbucks’ secret menu is here again with a fantastic refresher. The Starbucks WandaVision refresher is here to charm us and make us ditch all other drinks and order it. Let’s look at it in detail.
I don’t always jump on whatever comes my way, but when I heard about the WandaVision refresher and all the thrill it was causing online, I knew I had to try it. This drink is a modification of the Strawberry acai refresher. I have a great affinity for the finer things in life, and this is one fine drink. If you get the ordering steps right, you will be enjoying an amazing drink on that summer hot day.
Brief History of the Drink
I first heard about the WandaVision refresher on TIK-Tok. I was mostly captivated by the name and got curious to know what it was all about. The name was derived from the popular Disney show, ‘WandaVision’. Yes, that’s why the name sounds so familiar to you. The fans were so impressed with the show that they decided to create a drink in its name. I cannot be described as an avid Disney fan, but I sure loved what came of the show. The drink quickly went viral and had gained massive popularity ever since.
Is Starbucks WandaVision Refresher Still Available at Starbucks?
Yes, this drink is available only at your request. You will not find the name WandaVision on any Starbucks menu, but you can work your way to ordering this drink. A secret menu At Starbucks means that the baristas can whip it up for you, but aren’t officially trained to make that specific drink. Most of the secret menu drinks are Starbucks fans’ creations. So, yea it is available only if you order it properly s we are going to teach you if you keep reading this post.
Starbucks WandaVision Refresher(Ingredients, Taste, Variations, Sizes, Recipes, Caffeine, Calories,& More Information)
What’s in a Starbucks WandaVision Refresher-(Ingredients)
A Starbucks WandaVision refresher has only three main ingredients. The base drink is the Starbucks strawberry acai refresher without water. The water exclusion is optional; you can leave it if you desire a less-tasty drink. The next ingredient is the guava juice blend, and finally a good dose of the vanilla sweet cream cold foam. Let’s analyze these ingredients.
Strawberry acai refresher: This has been named the most popular Starbucks refresher in the United States. This explains why it is subjected to many modifications and customizations. The strawberry refresher contains acai powder, white grape juice, sugar, natural green coffee extract, passion fruit flavor, and strawberries.
Guava juice blend: This is a simple recipe for guavas, sugar, and water. The Starbucks version has white grape juice concentrate and guava juice concentrate and is shaken with coconut milk. It is creamy and smooth and does even better in the WandaVision refresher.
Vanilla sweet cream foam: This is a heavy cream topping that is vanilla flavored. It is the icing on the cake for the WandaVision refresher. This is what you will taste first when you begin to sip away your refresher.
Starbucks WandaVision Refresher: Sizes, Nutrition, Caffeine, Calories
What sizes are available?
The drink is available in a tall serving (12 fluid ounces). Grande (16 FL Oz.), Venti (20 FL Oz), and Trenta (30 FL Oz). These are the common servings found at Starbucks. The sizes depend on your mood for the day. A Grande serving is what can be described as a large cup. The tall is a moderate size while the Trenta is extra-large. When people are experimenting with a new drink, thy mostly opt to start small, so you can begin your WandaVision journey with a tall and work your way up.
Most of us are guilty of obsessing over nutritional information of the items we put in our bodies, and we are justified to do so as we can’t just down anything that comes our way. The WandaVision refresher is made with fruit juices and sugar.
The sugar content averages at 34g which counts for 45% of the daily value. This is moderate and a reasonable amount for a single drink. The calories are an average of 175 which is 8.7% of the daily value. The carbs are in moderation as they are 36g which is 12% of the daily value. Sodium levels are very low, which is good for your heart and blood pressure. The 35mg in this drink account for 2% of the daily value.
The milk protein is derived from the vanilla sweet cream which contains milk. This brings the milk content to 6g, a 9% of the daily value. Fats are on the lower side courtesy of the vanilla sweet cream and they total to3.5g, an 8 % of the daily value. This refresher is not cholesterol-free as it contains 20mg from the cream foam which accounts for 7% of the daily value. The daily value percentage is the amount of each nutrient required in the body per day divided by the total daily requirement and multiplied by 100 as demonstrated below.
|Calorie count (out of 2,000 calories daily intake)||175|
|Nutrient Content (per Grande serving)||% of Daily Value|
|Total Fat (3.5g)
Trans Fat (0.0g)
Saturated Fat (0g)
|Total carbohydrates (36g)
The WandaVision refresher contains only 45mg of caffeine. This comes from the green coffee extract in the Starbucks strawberry acai refresher. I think this is quite reasonable caffeine without adding anxiety and other undesired feelings brought by caffeine overdose.
So, what does a Starbucks WandaVision Refresher Taste Like?
The highlight of this refresher is the strawberries and guava flavor. I loved the infusion of these two flavors and the finishing creamy effect of the vanilla cold foam. The heavy cream adds its magic as usual, but the real flavor is in the strawberries and guava. I found it to be cool and refreshing just like the Disney show it was named after. It has the right amount of sweetness and bursts into fruit for that calming and cooling effect.
Ways to Customize a Starbucks WandaVision Refresher-Starbucks WandaVision Refresher Variations
The most popular customization is keeping the water intact while ordering. This makes the drink sweeter than if the water is eliminated. Another way is to add more guava juice. If guava is your fruit, then you would want to increase its ratio in the drink. Note that this drink is different from the WandaVision Frappe as the Frappuccino contains matcha powder and vanilla bean Frappuccino. You can opt to use fresh strawberries and make them into a puree for that optimized flavor.
