For those who haven't heard of this awesome news yet, Starbucks Philippines has recently launched a new way to enjoy drinking frappuccino called However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage. Instead of ordering a pre-designed Starbucks frappuccino, customers can now order frappuccino the way they want it to taste. Sounds awesome? Wait till you hear about the options that you can choose from.
Customizing or personalizing your frappuccino means you can [now]:
- Choose your milk: Whole or Non-fat)
- Adjust the coffee: Regular or Decaf
- Add extra Frappuccino Roast or espresso shot (stronger!)
- Lower your calories by using Non-fat milk, or forgoing the whipped cream
- Solve lactose intolerance by using soy milk
As the guys from Starbucks would say, "There's probably 1,001 possible ways to personalize your frappuccino." And although that may sound like an exaggeration, the combinations are indeed limitless.
It would be great to have all these available at home to make your own frappuccino but for now, the easiest way to personalize your frappucino is to go to the nearest Starbucks to do just that!
Way before this idea came to fruition, I have already been experimenting on Starbucks drink combinations. Curiosity was always there since I always wondered why people would limit themselves to just adding extra shots of this, and extra shots of that. The weirdest concoction I asked to be made would probably be a Venti Coffee Jelly Mocha Rhumba Raspberry Frappuccino Blended Beverage. The barista at the time gave me a squinty look and asked if I was sure I wanted that. And so the brave me pushed through with the order anyway.
When I got back to my seat to try the drink, the barista maintained his curious look at me, as if wondering how my experiment went. It only took one sip for me to stop drinking, went up to the counter and joked, "You don't need to say anything. That went terribly wrong."
Luckily, I've had better tasting experiments over the years and have finally found the right drink. I'd willingly drink my favorite Hazelnut Green Tea Cream Frappuccino Blended Beverage on any given day. And with Starbucks' However-You-Want-It Frappuccino Blended Beverage, I'm sure there are more ways to improve this already awesome drink.

So the next time you're at Starbucks and feeling adventurous, try making your very own frappuccino blend! If you discover something nice, do tell me as I'm always interested to try new combinations.
