How to Order a Caramel Apple Spice Frappuccino from the Starbucks Secret Menu

It's like an oven-fresh apple pie and a scoop of ice cream all in one!

Listen, I love summer as much as the next person, but I can’t deny my heart’s true love. I spend the year looking forward to fall, when the days are cool and it’s easy to find pumpkin spice everything. Pumpkin isn’t the only quintessential fall flavor, though. That’s right, I’m talking about good ol’ apple pie!

Starbucks is a large part of my life, so I’m always anxiously waiting for the next great thing. Well, that next great thing has officially landed on the Starbucks secret menu.

Introducing the Caramel Apple Spice Frappuccino!

If you’ve never heard of the secret menu at Starbucks, it’s basically a bunch of fan-made concoctions based on regular Starbucks menu items. This means baristas won’t always know them by name and you’ll have to know the exact recipe.

How to Order This Frappuccino

The Caramel Apple Frappuccino starts with a Grande cream-based Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino. From there, ask for apple juice to the second line of the cup. Then, the barista will blend the drink with the rest of the Frappuccino ingredients. When it’s complete, ask for some caramel drizzle and Cinnamon Dolce powder on top for a gorgeous finish.

This is honestly the perfect drink for this current moment—it keeps me cool in the hot weather while still hyping me up for autumn!

Time to Treat Yourself ASAP

I’m sure you’re no stranger to the Starbucks secret menu. Perhaps you’re tried the Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino or even the Lemon Meringue Frappuccino. Then you now that not every Starbucks barista knows the ins and outs of the secret menu. Having the recipe down pat and ready to go when you order is crucial. You can always make it easier by ordering online and picking it up to go, too.
