Starbucks Dragon Frappuccino – The Magic Continues

Now that the limited time Unicorn Frappuccino is no longer being served, and most Starbucks locations no longer have the ingredients to make it, a new mythical Frappuccino is making its rounds on the interweb and the good news is that this one is here to stay!

The magical Dragon Frappuccino was concocted by some creative Baristas to ease the disappointment for those looking to order the Unicorn Frappuccino. And guess what, we’re hearing that it tastes even better than the Unicorn Frappuccino! That may be because it mostly uses ingredients that are regularly carried, and that we’re used to seeing in other drinks. That and the Unicorn Frappuccino flavor was either a ve or hate situation if you weren’t a fan of sour.

The Dragon Frappuccino on the other hand, does not disappoint! It’s sweet and just as eye pleasing. It’s bright green with purple drizzled along the cup but we’ve also seen some stores get quite creative and use red or pink as well. The recipe can vary from store to store depending on what ingredients are available on hand.

Here’s the recipe that’s most common recipe being distributed:

  • Green Tea Frappuccino
  • Add vanilla bean powder
  • Swirl of berry syrup at the bottom of cup
  • Top with whip and purple sprinkles
  • Optional: Add coconut syrup

Now, apparently this berry syrup can be quite the challenge to find as it was made from the pink/purple unicorn powder and white mocha syrup, so…

Here’s the recipe we recommend since you’re unlikely to find berry syrup:

  • Green Tea Frappuccino
  • Add vanilla bean powder
  • Swirl made from white mocha sryup and dried berries drizzled around cup
  • Top with whip and purple drizzle
  • Optional: Add coconut syrup

A couple of alternatives to berry syrup we’ve been seeing are: dried berries mixed with white mocha syrup or strawberry syrup for a pink/reddish look instead of purple. You could also mix strawberry syrup with dried berries as well for extra color. We’d recommend the dried berries mixed with white mocha syrup to create the purple drizzle. It stands out more than the pink, and while it’s a different shade than the berry syrup, is still beautiful and vibrant.

A wide range of colors depending on how the beverage is made but delicious and Instagram worthy any way!
