If you order straight off the Starbucks menu and take your beverage as is, you’re missing an entire world of the Starbucks Secret Menu.

Amp up your routine Starbucks run with this Starbucks Secret Menu list. (But first, you might want to take a look to make sure you’ve mastered all the tips to save at Starbucks.)

How to order Starbucks Secret Menu: While many of these can be ordered from the Starbucks app, some can’t; when in doubt, order these drinks in person so the barista can clarify and make the necessary customizations. All of the prices and recipes are based on Grande size; you’ll have to adjust for smaller or larger cup sizes.


Starbucks Secret Menu Frappuccinos

While the average Frappuccino costs around $5 for a Grande, these cost a little more — on average, about $5.50. But remember, you’re going deluxe here.
