How much caffeine is in a frappuccino

Starbucks Frappuccino small plastic cups for on the go part 2

Here is the continuation of part 1 of the little article about the three Starbucks Frappuccino delicacies. Part 1 is available >> here.

My clear favorite is coffee, so much in advance, without any added aroma, just delicious coffee ;-).

The vanilla flavor is really very "vanilla" and therefore only something for real vanilla fans. But if your favorite ice cream has always been vanilla, that's definitely your thing.

The mocha flavor isn't too chocolaty, which I personally find a real plus. If I want cocoa, then I drink cocoa. Starbucks refines the coffee with a light chocolate note, which offers a really tasty change from pure coffee. In this respect, the mocha variant is clearly number two on my hit list.

A few more key data:

The small bottles are deposit-free and contain 250 ml of fine coffee, which, as already mentioned, tastes best in my opinion when ice-cold. The warmer it gets, the slower it gets and not everyone likes that.

All three variants are really substantial, because despite the 75% low-fat (1.5% fat) milk, "Coffee" and "Mocca" have a proud 64 kcal (273 kJ), most of it from the 10g sugar. The variety β€œVanilla” is not really inferior to the other two with 63 kcal (267 kJ). As I said, most of the calories come from the sugar it contains. That can bother you, but it doesn't have to be, because after all it's a relatively small dose of just 250ml and hey - it should taste good and it's coffee, so what the heck πŸ˜‰

Mocca and coffee - a lot of bang for the buck

What should still be interesting for the caffeine junkies among the readers is the fact that only two of the Starbucks coffee bottles, provided by Starbucks with the beautiful name Frappuccino, really contain a lot of caffeine: The coffee and mocha variants both have a lot of caffeine write 40mg caffeine per 100ml. This means that a small bottle that can be poured down really quickly in an "emergency" has an incredible 100 mg of caffeine. That's about as much as two cups of coffee and quite a lot. This is also noticeable after consumption, because the frappuccino really "whistles" in.

Vanilla - rather the gentle version

Unless you choose the vanilla variant. This is clearly defused, both in terms of taste (tastes good, but more like vanilla milk shake than after a real coffee) and in terms of the caffeine dose: it comes with just 25mg of caffeine per 100 ml. Anyone who thinks that the vanilla frappuccino is something for wimps and warm showerers is wrapped incorrectly, because the bottle still has almost 63mg of caffeine and thus more than an espresso. So there is still enough coffee effect for the small boost in between but no wake-up device that you have to be careful of after 4 a.m., because otherwise you can no longer sleep all night.

Frappuccino is definitely one of the tastiest of the ready-made, chilled coffee blends. Slightly creamy, although there is no cream at all, relatively low in fat, even if it is very sugary and with fine Arabica coffee.

The price is typically Starbucks not in the bargain range. Between 1.99 and 3.50 euros, depending on the location, you have to shell out for one of the small bottles. But you also get really, really good coffee for the money. πŸ™‚


Not exactly cheap, but affordable, well worth the money and deliciously delicious. Instead 5 sgd lips πŸ™‚
