Blended Avocado Frappuccino

Starbucks South Korea Launches a Tasty and Refreshing Avocado Drink

— June 29, 2018 — Lifestyle
From avocado toast to avocado drinks, the fruit has seen a radical increase in popularity and has been actively integrated into the diet of many. Starbucks South Korea contributes to this craze by launching its 'Avocado Blended' Frappucino for a limited time in locations across the country. The treat was first introduced three years ago as a seasonal offering but due to popular demand, it makes a return with a revamped recipe.

The texture of the avocado drink is smooth and creamy. To better mimic the appearance of the fruit, Starbucks South Korea includes a chocolate pit to top its frappucino creation. As a result, not only will the avocado drink satisfy some cravings, it will also make for a wonderful photo opportunity.
