Have you ever accidentally came across a Starbucks drink that wasn’t on the menu? Ever heard of that “secret menu” people talk about? Have you ever tried creating your own? I have!
In today’s blog post, I wanted to share with you all my favorite drinks that are NOT on the menu at Starbucks. A majority of what I usually order always has something extra. Whether that’s substituting for a healthier option or adding my own ingredients, I choose it my way! Sometimes, the things I come up with taste pretty decent! Here are the best ones!
The purple dream consists of a creamy soy milk base combined with the Very Berry Refresher. A sweet and subtle fruit taste mixed with vanilla is exactly what you can expect out of this drink! This was actually ordered by accident when the Pink Drink got popular! My local Starbucks was out of the Acai Refesher and out of coconut milk so I substituted the recipe with different ingredients. It made for one new tasty beverage!
If you’re going to splurge try for the strawberry crunch frappuccino! This drink is very simple! Order a Strawberries and Cream frapp with java chips. That’s it! The java chunks give the drink a savory flavor and tones down the overall sweetness of the beverage. Almost tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry!
One of my absolute favorite things to order off the menu is the Iced Green Tea Latte. But to me, it will often taste bland and very filling. Throw 2 pumps of peppermint syrup in there and substitute the whole milk for non-fat. The minty flavor of the syrup compliments the matcha powder well! It’s a light, energy boosting, and refreshing flavor for a hot day!
Icy White Chocolate Raspberry
Another sweet drink great for a Spring day! Order an Iced White Chocolate Mocha with 2 pumps of raspberry (for a grande size). This option tastes awesome as a frappuccino too. If you go that route, add whipped cream with some mocha drizzle! So yummy!
Keep in mind guys, these are totally my own creations. They’re not options the staff will know if you give them the name, so follow my instructions above in order to truly get what you want! Most of these are simple and not very difficult to order. So, I hope your barista doesn’t go through too much trouble making them!
Anyways, I’d like to know what concoctions all of you can come up with! Are there any must-try drinks I need to know about? Leave them in a comment below or tell me on my other social platforms! Looking forward to giving them a shot!
