The Unicorn Frappuccino Is a Serious Sugar Bomb

The Unicorn Frappuccino Is a Serious Sugar Bomb

We’re all for living a balanced life and indulging in a treat when you’ve got a craving – you live your best life, girl! But we also think you should be aware of exactly what’s going in your body – and when we heard the news that Starbucks would be releasing a Unicorn Frappuccino, our first thought was, “holy sh*t, that’s gonna be a sugar bomb.”

The crème-based blended beverage has no coffee, so the entirety of the drink is cream, ice, and LOTS of added sugar. For reference, the recommended max sugar intake for a woman is 25 grams per day. Now, without further ado, the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino nutritional information.

Serving Size Calories Sugars Fat Carbs Protein
Tall (with whip) 280 39 11 42 4
Grande (with whip) 410 59 16 62 5
Venti (with whip) 500 76 18 79 7

So . . . we got the chance to try this exorbitantly sweet frosty drink, it is SO sweet. And as a grande drink will run you 59 grams of sugar – more than double the daily recommended amount (think about that: two days worth of sugar in just one drink), be sure to enjoy this “magical” concoction with moderation.

If you’re trying to curb a sweet tooth without ingesting a sugar-loaded calorie bomb (with a much shorter ingredient list), you can browse our healthy dessert suggestions that not only taste good, but will help you feel good, too.
