This Starbucks Secret Menu Piña Colada Frappuccino Tastes JUST Like The Real Thing

Crack Starbucks' secret menu to order a tropical Piña Colada Frappuccino.

Anyone who’s familiar with the Starbucks secret menu knows that’s the place for wild, inventive drinks like the fresh, citrusy Lemon Meringue Frappuccino and super chocolatey Twix Frappuccino.

Now, there’s a new drink that’s the talk of the town and it may be the best one yet. Hint: it involves pineapple and coconut. Yep, it’s a Piña Colada Frappuccino, and it’s all we need this summer.

How Can I Order the Piña Colada Frappuccino?

As with many viral Starbucks drinks, the Piña Colada Frappuccino isn’t displayed on any menu. Those in the know can order one if they know how it’s made. Just remember that secret menu beverages take more time and effort, so have the recipe ready or use the app to order. Your barista—and fellow customers—will thank you for not holding up the line!

Thanks to Starbucks Secret Menu, the formula for a Piña Colada Frappuccino is secret no longer. This new-to-us drink is made possible by Starbucks’ recent addition of pineapple tea and the chain’s selection of non-dairy milks, including coconut milk.

Step 1: Order a Grande Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with coconut milk.

Step 2: Add two pumps of Pineapple Ginger syrup. (If it isn’t sweet enough, gradually ask to add more pumps, then mix it all up with your straw.)

What you’ll end up with is a creamy beverage that’s bursting with the tropical flavor of coconut, pineapple and a hint of ginger. If your location still has pineapple ginger powder in stock, ask for a sprinkle—if not, the topping won’t negatively affect the drink’s overall taste.
