By now I’m sure we’ve all heard of the infamous Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks. I’ll admit it was beautiful to behold, but it got me thinking about other fun inspirations for frappuccinos. There’s even a Pokemon drink, so why not Disney ones? That’s why I put together the Top 5 Disney Inspired Frappuccinos, we here at Chip and Co, would love to see!
I’ll admit it, I totally broke down and had to get a Unicorn Frappuccino the day they came out. As I sipped it’s sweet unicorn essence I couldn’t help but think, why is there no Disney inspired Starbucks drinks? I mean there’s a Starbucks in every Disney park, and even Downtown Disney in California and Disney Springs, so why not have Disney inspired concoctions? So after spending probably way too much time thinking up characters, flavors, and of course colors, I chatted with a few other Disney Addicts, and we narrowed it down. I doodled out drinks inspired by the characters we wanted to see as drinks most, and got to work!
***Note- These are just frappuccinos we would like to see, they aren’t really coming out with them, but it was definetly fun! These are just my little doodles to help illustrate the colors and layers of the drinks, not actual product concepts. Please don’t make the Baristas try to make these haha!
1. Ariel Inspired Frappuccino – The Mermaid
Mermaids are a mythical creature like the unicorn that sparked this frappuccino craze. There’s often debates among friends of who is team mermaid and who is team unicorn. So why not have a mermaid drink inspired by the undersea princess herself, Ariel? I think this drink should have tropical flavors, like a Piña colada. A refreshing citrusy pineapple mix on the top, with a sweet coconut vanilla on the bottom. The drizzle could be cherry, just like the cherry on top of a Piña colada! I think that a candy shaped like a shell on top of the whipped cream would be the perfect finish.
2. Aladdin Inspired Frappuccino – Genie’s 3 Wishes
Since we’re wishing for all these fun Disney inspired drinks, we can’t leave out the wish granter himself, Genie! The Creamy blue, with red drizzle design, topped with gold sprinkles, would be a perfect way for a Frappuccino to Disneybound as Genie. I imagine a creamy blue raspberry for the main drink. I think adding a pomegranate red drizzle would not only go deliciously with raspberry, but would suit Genie well. Some sparkling gold sprinkles on top would be a nice nod to the cuffs that ounce bound genie, and they would melt away in the drink, just like Aladdin’s wish removing them.
3. Belle Inspired Frappuccino – The Enchanted Rose
For Belle’s enchanted rose drink, I knew the colors had to resemble her iconic gold dress. I was a bit torn on the perfect flavors though. The most popular idea was to have it be a bit of a Le Fou’s Brew tasting frappe. That would be fabulous for fan’s of the drink who can’t always get to Walt Disney World. This could be a butterscotch and apple cream drink, with a red marshmallow drizzle. I also thought a butterscotch cream drink with a rose flavored swirl would be yummy, but rose is mostly for the more adventurous taste buds. What do you think the flavor for this one should be?
4. Snow White Inspired Frappuccino – Snow’s Poisoned Apple
The poison apple from Snow White is one of the most popular icons that comes to mind when you think of the original Disney Princess. A drink inspired by the cursed apple from the movie would not only be a Disney inspiration, but would look wicked cool. This tasty potion would of course have to be apple flavored! A yummy caramel or white chocolate flavored drink with a sour apple drizzle would be magical. I opted for red, yellow, and blue sprinkles on top as a nod to the iconic color motif of Snow’s dress.
5. Sleeping Beauty Inspired Frappuccino
Last but not least, the Aurora inspired frappuccino. I will admit the Aurora’s Once Upon a Dream drink definetly resembles the Unicorn Frappe. That’s because while drinking the Unicorn, all I could think about was the scene where the fairies are changing the color of Aurora’s dress. If that drink could change color, why not an Aurora inspired one that changes color too? I would love if this drink had a blue vanilla bottom layer, with a tart cherry top layer, and a white chocolate drizzle colored purple. Add on some colorful sprinkles and sugars on the top, and this drink would totally be once upon a dream.
I really hope you enjoyed our Top 5 Disney Inspired Frappuccinos we Wish Starbucks Would Make! I would love to know what characters, or flavor changes to my ideas you guys would like to see! Do you wish Starbucks would make some Disney inspired drinks too? Also, to the Starbucks Baristas… I’m sorry!
