The Starbucks Frappuccino bottles are my lifesavers. I often grab one while traveling or as part of my Friday lunchtime meal deal.

That little Starbucks bottled iced coffee is the perfect pick-me-up and tastes delicious - but exactly how much caffeine is in Starbucks bottled Frappuccino?[1]

Sip away as I separate fact from fiction about this tasty beverage's caffeine content.

Caffeine Levels Of Starbucks Bottled Frappuccinos Explained

The amount of caffeine in Starbucks Frappuccino drinks will vary based on flavor and size.

As much as I adore a cheeky iced Frappuccino or hot coffee throughout my day, it is important to keep an eye on how much caffeine you have in a day.

Too much can have adverse effects on your body, and drinking some too late in the day can keep you up at night.

As much as some of these taste like milkshakes, be careful with how many you drink and when.

I try to make an effort to stick to the 400 mg recommended limit and have a rule not to drink caffeinated drinks after 4 pm.[2]

1. Caffeine in a 9.5oz Bottle

A 9.5 fl oz bottle contains 45-90 mg of caffeine, depending on the flavor.

A Starbucks bottled frappuccino was originally only available in 9.5-ounce bottles. They have since upscaled, but some 9.5-ounce versions remain.

2. Caffeine in a 13.7oz Bottle

This larger size is, unsurprisingly, full of caffeine. Depending on the flavor, a 13.7 fl oz bottle has a caffeine content between 45 and 130 mg.

A Starbucks bottled frappuccino is a convenient way to get a quick afternoon caffeine boost. It turns out, however, that not all Starbucks frappuccinos are created equal.

I was shocked to learn that my favorite delicious and refreshing beverage, the Dark Chocolate Brownie Oat Milk, was one of the biggest hitters - that explains the jump in my heart rate when I indulge in multiple of these caffeinated beverages a day.

Nutrition Information

Alongside the Starbucks frappuccino bottle caffeine levels, coffee lovers may want to know other details about their daily Starbucks iced coffee.

This sweet treat tends to have the following details on its nutrition labels:

9.5 fl oz:
  • 200 calories
  • 3g fat
  • 100mg sodium
  • 37g carbs
  • 31g sugar
  • 6g protein
13.7 fl oz:
  • 300 calories
  • 4.5g fat
  • 140mg sodium
  • 54g carbs
  • 47g sugar

Like the ingredients list, the exact nutrition details will vary from flavor to flavor. Some may have more sugar or calories or fat. 

Like all things, the occasional almond milk vanilla or java chip bottled drink or brewed coffee is OK, but make sure to have bottled frappuccinos in moderation.

If you are watching your calorie intake or sugar intake, I recommend checking the label of the flavor you want before buying to make an informed choice for your body.

On the flip side, if you're not worried about how many calories you're consuming, try adding whipped cream for an extra creamy texture.

Barista HQ Bonus Tip: Did you know that you've been drinking Starbucks bottled Frappuccinos wrong? OK, maybe not wrong, but hear me out. If you put your drink in the freezer for a few hours before you drink it, it'll become an icy slushie texture just like the ones you buy in-store.

Common Questions

Are bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos vegan?

Some bottled Starbucks Frappuccino bottle flavors are vegan, such as the ones that use oat or almond milk.

Are Starbucks Bottled Frappuccinos gluten-free?

Whether bottled Starbucks frappuccinos are gluten-free is a tricky question. Starbucks does not claim they are due to the factory they are made in and the maltodextrin in the recipe. Maltodextrin has a few potential sources, including wheat. As such, there is no guarantee they are gluten-free as traces may get in while in production.

Is 110mg of caffeine a lot?

Whether 110 mg of caffeine is a lot depends on how much caffeine you typically consume as well as how your body works individually. However, it is just over a quarter of the recommended daily recommended caffeine intake, which is 400 mg.

Where can you buy Starbucks Bottled Frappuccino Drinks?

If you need more caffeine in your life, you can buy a single or multipack Starbucks bottled Frappuccino bottle in grocery stores, Walmart, Amazon, and your local Starbucks.

Can I get a caffeine-free Starbucks Bottled Frappuccino?

It is not currently possible to get a caffeine-free Starbucks bottled Frappuccino, but Starbucks may bring decaffeinated coffee versions out in the future.
