Starbucks Secret Menu: French Vanilla Frappuccino

Starbucks > Secret Menu > French Vanilla Frappuccino
If you’re not a fan of milkshakes, this may be a bit of a turnoff for your food palette but if you’re obsessed with drinks related to ice cream, then the French vanilla Frappuccino is your best bet for heaven in your mouth.

But one thing is for sure: we suggest you try regardless of what you normally like. This drink is totally a top contender as one of our faves and it’s something that you don’t have to be “in the mood” for. It’s something that hits the spot every time.

Vanilla-Bean-FrappuccinoWhat’s in it?

  • Vanilla bean Frappuccino
  • 1-2 pumps of vanilla syrup
  • 1-2 pumps of hazelnut syrup
  • Caramel drizzle on top
  • Whipped cream (optional)

How to order:

Since this is on the “secret” menu of the Internet, you’re going to have to go and order a custom drink from Starbucks. You want to ask for a vanilla bean crème frappe as your base and then add the according amount of syrups into your drink. You MUST get the hazelnut pumps because it total dictates the French vanilla taste of the drink! Without it, it doesn’t nearly taste like it. So if you’re not a fan of hazelnut, this drink won’t be at the top of your “must have” list.
