Starbucks is known for its unique lingo. Many people don’t know the names of the cups they serve. What exactly is a venti?
What does “double blended” at Starbucks mean? It’s something I hear all the time and I don’t know what to make of it. This is what I discovered when I did some research.
What does Starbucks Double Blended mean?
Double blended means to mix twice. When you ask for your Starbucks drink to be double-mixed, you are telling the barista that it will take two passes on the blender. This is a request that many Starbucks customers make because it makes their drinks smoother, thicker, and more pleasant to drink.
This article will take a look at Starbucks blended beverages and the blending process used by baristas to create them. We will also discuss double blending and the effects it has on your drink.
Can You Get A Starbucks Frappuccino Not Blended?
Frappuccino should not be blended if you request it. This is often requested by customers who want to make their own Frappuccino, or because they prefer a more “rich” mix.
The problem is that the ice melts during the journey home, leaving the Frappuccino watery and thin. Starbucks Frappuccinos fans recommend making your own Frappuccinos at home using proper recipes, rather than carrying a mixed drink home.
What does ‘Double Blending’ mean?
Starbucks uses the Vitamix Blending Station Advance 48 ounce, which they call “The Quiet One”. These machines are quiet and fast, and are used to make all Starbucks blended drinks.
Many consumers request that their drink (usually the Frappuccinos), be mixed twice. Frappuccinos are thick, creamy drinks made from a combination of milk, ice cream, cream, syrups, flavours, tea bases and espresso shots. The barista will make your drink twice if you request a double blend.
Double blending increases the creaminess and thickness of the drink and blends it more thoroughly. This makes the drink faster and easier to consume. Double blending takes longer to prepare.
Frappuccino enthusiasts make their own Frappuccino versions, changing the ingredients as they please to make it even thicker. Double blending is required for many of these drinks to be drinkable.
What are the Best Starbucks Blended Drinks?
Some fans have created lists of the best blended Starbucks beverages, some with recipes that can be used to customize the standard Starbucks offerings. Search for “low sugar” and “low fat” Starbucks blended beverages if you are concerned about your health.
Let’s take a look at one of the most well-known blended Starbucks beverages:
There are three sizes available for the drink. It can be made with milk, espresso or Frappuccino coffee, dark caramel sauce and caramel crunch topping, caramel drizzle and whipped cream.
The drink is not mixed in a single glass. Instead, the buttery caramel syrup and coffee are blended with milk and ice. Then, the drink is topped with dark caramel sauce, whipped topping, caramel drizzle, and a crunchy caramel sugar topping.
It’s a complex process that requires a lot of attention from the barista and time.
How do you order double blended drinks on the Starbucks App?
Starbucks doesn’t allow double-blended drinks to be ordered on their app. It’s not a feature that is standard in any Starbucks drink. Starbucks suggests that you ask for the personal modification only in-person and in-store.
The barista will confirm that your drink is suitable for double-blending by asking this question. It is important to remember that the request will also mean that your drink may take longer to prepare.
