How To Add Strawberries To Starbucks Drinks
When ordering strawberry drinks at Starbucks, you can request extra strawberry ingredients. Here is how Starbucks offers that:
Starbucks has several syrup options like toffee, caramel, brown sugar, etc. Naturally, you would think they would have strawberry syrup. But Starbucks decide to level things up and use strawberry puree instead.
That way, you get a more natural and potent strawberry flavor. They use the puree at the bottom of a cup for layering and even drizzled over the top for some drinks and on request. Alternatively, you can order your drink with a strawberry acai refresher, which is more like syrup in texture.
Strawberry toppings at Starbucks typically include any strawberry ingredient you want with your drink. You can choose strawberry puree, acai refresher, or even fresh strawberries.
Starbucks also offers a strawberry cream cold foam and freeze-dried strawberries as a topping for your drink.
Starbucks has something called inclusions. These inclusions include freeze-dried fruits like grapes, limes, blackberries, and strawberries. They are slices of fruit that have been freeze-dried and add more intense color and flavor to your drinks,
