Marshawn Lynch, Starbucks Team Up to Create 'Beast Mode' Frappuccino



    Small Biz Struggling to Access Capital, Report

    What happens when one the biggest NFL stars pairs up with a coffee powerhouse? A drink called 'Beast Mode' is born.

    At least that's what the final product was when Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch teamed up with Starbucks to launch a new Frappuccino flavor, with proceeds from the blended coffee creation benefiting inner city youth through his Fam 1st Family Foundation.

    Lynch came up with the concoction by trying a variety of the coffee chain's flavors before mixing them together and deciding what went together best.

    The 'Beast Mode' is a double mocha Frappuccino with mint, cream and protein powder, topped with whipped cream, "purple berry drizzle" and matcha green tea powder.

    “I’d drink this before a workout,” Lynch said. “You could get your buff on with this.”

    Beast Mode hits select Starbucks shops on Oct. 22 and will be available through the football season.
