Baristas make the Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino by pouring a mango crème blend over strawberry prickle pear fruit puree and finishing it with another layer of the puree on top. Starbucks said the prickly pear flavor (think berries and tropical melon) pairs well with strawberry and even has a few hints of hibiscus, lime, and passionfruit.The Mango Pineapple Frappuccino is made the same way, but with a mango pineapple fruit puree. Interestingly, neither Frappuccino is served with whipped cream on top -- apparently, to allow "the fruit flavors and bright colors to shine through." But, hey, that doesn't mean you can't ask for them to add some.
Sure, the crème-based Frappuccinos don't have the caffeine punch to replace your morning coffee, but if you're looking to cool off with what's essentially a drinkable fruit popsicle, well, here you go.
