I’ve searched far and wide to bring you some of the best Starbucks drinks on their secret menu. Secret menu items can be a little tricky. You can’t just ask for a Chunky Monkey Frappuccino, unless your barista just so happens to know what that is. So take notes because I’m going to show you exactly how to order these delicious secret drinks. Here are 15 Starbucks drinks you need to try.
1. Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino
Now you can have Starbucks drinks that taste like your favorite cereal. To get the Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino, order a Strawberries and Crème Frappuccino, then add 1 pump of caramel, hazelnut, and toffee-nut syrup. Add in some java chips and you have a sweet cereal treat.
2. Cake Batter Frappuccino
Cake Batter is one of the Starbucks drinks perfect for a birthday treat. To get the Cake Batter Frappuccino, order a Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino, then add 1 pump of hazelnut syrup. Ask your barista to add 1 Starbucks Birthday Cake Pop into the blender to complete your drink.
3. Apple Pie Frappuccino
Here’s one of the Starbucks drinks to put you in the Fall spirit. To get the Apple Pie Frappuccino, ask for ½ cup of milk mixed with ½ cup of apple juice. Then add 2 pumps each of cinnamon dolce and caramel syrup. Add some ice and blend.
4. Caramel Snickerdoodle Macchiato
It’s like drinking a freshly baked snickerdoodle. To get the Caramel Snickerdoodle Macchiato, order an Iced Soy Caramel Macchiato upside down. This just means the steps to make a regular caramel macchiato will be reversed. First you add the caramel, next the espresso, then the soy milk, ice, and syrups. After you order the Iced Soy Caramel Macchiato upside down, add 1 pump each of cinnamon dolce and vanilla syrup.
5. Rainbow Sorbet Frappuccino
The Rainbow Sorbet Frappuccino is great for summer and taste like real sorbet. To get the Rainbow Sorbet Frappuccino, order a Strawberries and Crème Frappuccino made with orange refresher instead of strawberry purée. Add a scoop of vanilla bean powder, 1 pump raspberry syrup, and 1 pump of peach syrup. Blend over ice and you’re done.
6. Key Lime Pie Frappuccino
Key Lime Pie is one of my favorite desserts. To get the Key Lime Pie Frappuccino, order a Cool Lime Refresher with whole milk. Add 1 pump of cinnamon dolce syrup, 2 pumps of vanilla syrup, and 2 pumps of white mocha. Ask for whipped cream to be blended in and you’re done.
7. Honey Nut Macchiato
While this Starbucks drink isn’t as heart-healthy as the cereal it’s named after, it’s just as delicious. To get the Honey Nut Macchiato, order a Caramel Macchiato and add 1 pump of chestnut praline syrup. Top it off with 1 or 2 packets of honey and enjoy.
8. Chunky Monkey Frappuccino
Chunky Monkey is one of the most popular ice cream flavors, so we had to turn it into a Frappuccino. To get the Chunky Monkey Frappuccino, order a cream-based frappuccino with a banana, 2 scoops of vanilla bean powder, and 2 pumps each of mocha, hazelnut, and toffee-nut syrup. Top with a light caramel drizzle and a light mocha drizzle to complete your drink.
9. Toasted Marshmallow Cold Brew
Your favorite fireside snack is a delicious cold brew. To get the Toasted Marshmallow Cold Brew, order a Sweet Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew with 1 pump of vanilla syrup, 3 pumps of toasted white mocha sauce, and 1 additional pump of toasted white mocha in the cold foam.
10. Dole Whip Frappuccino
Forget Disney’s Dole Whip and try Starbucks Dole Whip Frappuccino. This is a cool, refreshing, and fruity drink perfect for summer. To get the Dole Whip Frappuccino, order a Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino with 6 pumps of pineapple-ginger syrup and whipped cream.
11. Samoa Cookie Frappuccino
This Starbucks drink is for everyone who loves Girl Scout cookies. Samoa cookies are my favorite. The combination of coconut, chocolate, and caramel are perfect. To get the Samoa Cookie Frappuccino, order a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino with 2 pumps of caramel syrup. Request extra coconut flakes to be blended into the drink.
12. White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai Latte
This drink has a sweet, cinnamon taste that will make your tummy feel warm and cozy. To get the White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai Latte, order a chai latte with whole milk and no water. Add 2 pumps each of cinnamon dolce and white mocha syrup. Add whipped cream and sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top.
13. Cookie Dough Frappuccino
Eating cookie dough is delicious, drinking it is even better. To get the Cookie Dough Frappuccino, order a Cinnamon Dolce Crème Frappuccino, with 2 pumps of mocha syrup. Ask for java chips to be blended in and add whipped cream topped with cookie crumble.
14. Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino
This Starbucks drink is delicious and taste just like a cinnamon roll. To get the Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino, order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with 2 pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup. Enjoy your cinnamon roll in a cup.
15. Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino
The Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino is only available during Autumn, so you can’t order this secret menu drink year-round. To get the Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino, order a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino with 2 pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup and whipped cream blended in. Top with cinnamon dolce sprinkles and enjoy.
If you ever don’t feel like going to Starbucks, you can easily make these drinks at home. You can buy these delicious syrup flavors at Walmart, Target, Big Lots, or any store that sells tea and coffee. I recommend Torani brand syrups. You can get them at Big Lots for a lot cheaper than other stores. This way you can have a Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino any time of year. Remember that secret menu items are created by baristas and customers, so don’t be afraid to tweak these recipes and create your own Starbucks drink. Maybe it’ll go viral.
