The New Berry and Banana Yogurt Frappuccinos: Starbucks UK and more
A number of international Starbucks markets have just launched a yogurt Frappuccino. It comes in two flavors: Red Berry Yogurt or Banana Yogurt. You’ll find this new Frappuccino in Starbucks locations in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, and possibly more.
The home pages for Starbucks UK (which means that Starbucks Ireland will have the same Yogurt Frappuccinos too, since Starbucks UK and Ireland usually receive the exact same promotional beverages), Starbucks France, Starbucks Germany, and Starbucks Spain have all been updated to show the new Yogurt Frappuccino.
One of this blog’s regular readers (located in Belfast) ordered a Banana Yogurt Frappuccino and sent me a few photos from his visit to Starbucks:
Starbucks has experimented with Yogurt Frappuccinos a number of times, in many locations. Last year, in Bulgaria, Greece, and a few other countries, there was a Yogurt Frappuccino offering as a seasonal drink item. And in 2012, Starbucks did a small test of yogurt “Frappuccino Smoothies” in California.
I’m always a little jealous that we don’t get these things in Seattle. They sound good! The reader who sent in this photo of his Banana Yogurt Frappuccino said that he very much enjoyed it.
I know that I have some international readers. Have you tried this? Does it sound good to you?
And I know it goes without saying, but the new Banana Yogurt and Red Berry Yogurt Frappuccinos are likely summer seasonal items only.
I tried them last week in London when they were an early offer for Rewards members. I wasn’t expecting much, but the banana one wasn’t bad. It wasn’t as much as an artificial taste as I thought it would be. Apparently the red berry one is not as popular. They’re nicer than the Vivanno range. The only downside to them for me is they came up at quite a high price point, higher than a lot of the frappuccino range.
Going to the UK tomorrow – I will try to find this and report back
@Chris – We Seattleites are sometimes very jealous of international beverages!
@Mark – What perfect timing. I’ll be interested in hearing your 2 cents.
I’ve tried both of these products in the lead up to launching the campaign in Denmark (Norway unfortunately will not offer this product, though Sweden and Finland will). They are both unbelievably delicious! With Creme base added to both beverages the tanginess of the yoghurt is rounded off, making this one of my favorite Starbucks summer refreshments to date. Red berry is my favorite
Had the berry one- its really nice. They’re really nice and tart, but even more expensive than frappuccinos so won’t be buying them too frequently
I would agree that they are expensive. I’ve only bought mine so far with a Treat Receipt!
I went and had another banana one today thanks to a recovery coupon, and it was pretty good again. I may get it again when I have a treat receipt or reward. They seem better formulated than the Frappuccinos – less icy at the bottom.
Agreed Lucy! I had a red berry one today and it was good. It looked easy enough to make at home I thought.
A bit OT, but I clicked on the link to the UK Starbucks to check out the food. The UK is not known for its food, but how is the Bacon Buttie not a thing here in the US?!?! It’s basically a mound of bacon on a sandwich. Yum! The salads looked really good and would welcome them to our semi-decent US salad lineup. I think I’ll skip the Marmite sandwich, though…
Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Switzerland and more have it this Summer.
I’ve tried Red Berry and it was quite good, however the fruity taste should be stronger.
How many calories in the banana frappuccino? Had one today it was lovely but I added an expresso to mine
When will these be available in the US?
The 3rd flavor (customized) is my favorite, half banana / half red berry.
I love the Red Berry Yogurt Frappuccino, I haven’t tried the banana yet though. I don’t drink coffee very often so I rarely go to Starbucks. But since I heard about them providing their employees access to a free college degree online, I thought I’d show my support for that awesome benefit.
How much did one tall one cost in £?

I really enjoyed the banana yoghurt frappuccino. I’ll be trying the red berry one next! At 195 calories for a Tall it’s probably a drink I’ll try a lot this Summer.
It’s so unusual for us here in the UK and Ireland to get to try new products ahead of you guys in Seattle!
