You probably know by now how people are freaking out about this new Starbucks unicorn Frappuccino. This new drink is dominating Instagram and it has become the most popular drink at Starbucks so far.
It is maybe by the unique baby blue or baby pink color and the cream that is topped. Since it was debuted in April 19th it has become an absolute sensation and everyone is dying to try it.
There are some people that go in extremes and get really fanatical about this Starbucks unicorn Frappuccino that they even dye their hair in order to match their Frappuccino color.
However, not all of us are dying about this drink and we are not completely in love with it. Many people have even declared that on the social media such as Instagram and Twitter pointing out how this drink is not at all healthy and is very poor in nutritional value.
For example, this drink has 500 calories and 76 sugar which is an extreme amount of energy to provide from only a drink. You can eat a whole pizza for this amount of calorie intake.
As with all the other drinks, Starbucks is open and sincere about the ingredients of the Frappuccino. This drink is made with a mix of syrups and a lot of sugar ice and milk. And with all those high in calorie and sugar ingredients it is not a surprise this drink Is such a calorie-bomb.
So yes, this drink is not a healthy food at all. This is because of the fact that an average person daily should consume up to 20gr of sugar and this drink already contains three times more than needed.
This Starbucks unicorn Frappuccino has no nutritional value at all!
Another very interesting fact is that if consuming such an amount of calories through drink, they are a lot faster absorbed by the body because they are in a liquid form. So in this case with this drink it is a lose-lose situation. Of course, if you don’t care about your health or your body-weight it is okay.
However if you are taking care of your overall health and you are on a diet plan, this drink will never fit your needs.
Good news are that even Starbucks stated that this drink is going to be here for few days only meaning they are not meant to make this drink the next most famous one and let people get addicted to something that is very far from a healthy drink or meal.
The Starbucks unicorn Frappuccino is more a treat of a lifetime drink. It is of course delicious and one of a kind and it wouldn’t hurt you if you tried one once, but never consume it on aa daily basis of course if you care about your own health. When you decide to try it, just take one of a smaller size and it will be your guilty pleasure.
