This New Starbucks Drink Harnesses Everything We Love About Avocados
Get ready to drop some serious cash on a plane ticket to South Korea! That's the only place in the world you can get Starbucks' latest drink, and it's one we're dying to try.
It's no secret millennials love avocado, and the Avocado Blended is a true love sonnet to the fruit. It's a frozen drink that features creamy blended avocado and yogurt to create what's basically a refreshing smoothie. There are little chunks of real avocado throughout, so you might need a spoon and a straw to finish one.
What makes the drink really special, though, is its presentation. The top of the drink is outlined with a circle of dark green syrup, and plopped right in the center is a chocolate sphere. When viewed from above, it looked just like an avocado cut in half. Yum!
It's not the first time Starbucks South Korea has served up a blended avocado drink. Back in 2015, it was on the menu, but the chocolate pit and green peel are totally new for this year.
Can we all agree that if South Korea can get two blended avocado drinks, we should be able to get at least one stateside? Now that Starbucks in the USA has guac, you know they at least have access to avocados.
In the meantime, we've been trying to stave off our cravings by looking at pictures of the drink shared on Instagram.
It's almost like taking a sip ourselves... almost.
The Avocado Blended is a seasonal drink, so it'll only be available for a limited time. Best cash in those airline miles now, am I right?
