Over the years, avocados have been a tricky thing to acquire in Korea. They were imported into the country, but the locals weren’t very familiar with them. Therefore, they were expensive, and often not great quality. This made for many sad foreigners who missed guacamole.

The avocado frappuccino is a part of the summer promotions at South Korean Starbuck’s locations.

Things have changed, however. And these days avocados are plentiful in Korea. Buying avocado toast or guacamole isn’t impossible anymore.

Starbucks, as they tend to be good at, decided to jump on this avocado bandwagon by creating the ‘avocado blended’ aka – the avocado frappuccino.

At first glance, this looks like a real avocado, pit and all! However, what you are actually consuming is a frozen yogurty base. They blend real avocado to give it that authentic taste and appearance. The ‘pit’ is actually a hollow ball of chocolate! The green color comes from, well, avocado.

The avocado blended frappuccino was initially released 3 years ago. However, due to popular demand, it has made a limited-time comeback.

The flavor is what you’d imagine: avocado, sugar, and yogurt. While I wouldn’t say I loved it, I would say that if avocado is your jam, you should check it out.

The avocado blended frappuccino comes in one size only (tall) and costs 6900 Korean Won ($6.50 USD).

If you’re visiting Korea and want to experience the most Instagrammable drink since the Unicorn Frappuccino, you’d better hurry! This avocado blended frappuccino is only available for a few weeks, and at participating locations in South Korea.
