When you’re yawning your way through your afternoon, a caffeine buzz can really help. But if the warm weather has changed your Starbucks order to one of their ice cold Frappuccinos, you might want to reconsider. It turns out, these drinks don’t have much caffeine in them at all and that’s because most Frappuccinos don't contain coffee.
So how much caffeine is in your Frappuccino? That all depends on which one you order. But none of these blended beverages have as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. A grande cup of black Starbucks coffee has 182 milligrams of caffeine and here’s the caffeine content of the grande size of these Frappuccinos:
- Mocha - 110 mg
- Caramel - 100 mg
- Coffee - 95 mg
- White Chocolate Mocha - 90 mg
- Midnight Mint Mocha - 80 mg
- S’Mores - 75 mg
- Green Tea Creme - 70 mg
- Chai Creme - 40 mg
- Red Velvet Cake - 15 mg
- Strawberries and Creme - 0 mg
- Vanilla Bean - 0 mg
So when you really need a pick-me-up, you might want to order something that packs a little more punch to help you power through.
