You Can Still Get The Discontinued Starbucks Lemon Bar Frap To Refresh Your Summer

Starbucks' blended beverages just hit differently in the summer. While pumpkin spice drinks warm us up in the fall, summer is all about fun, fruity, colorful concoctions like the secret menu Blue Drink (made with iced passion mango tea), the Blackberry Cobbler Frappuccino, and the Lemon Bar Frappuccino. Bright, tangy lemon is one of the most refreshing fruits of the season, and if you crave lemonade in the summer, you'll love that you can easily recreate this discontinued treat.

Simply order a Crème Frappuccino (we'd go with vanilla), then ask the barista to add lemonade, vanilla syrup, and whole milk. Then, ask for the whole thing to be topped off with a dollop of whipped cream. The original 2015 beverage included a sprinkle of caramel sugar, but today you can request the caramel crunch topping. Since the Starbucks app and website don't offer options to add lemonade to a Vanilla Crème Frappuccino, you'll need to go in-store to get this lemon treat. But it'll be worth the extra step — you'll get a mix of sweet, tart, and creamy flavors, all blended up in an ice-cold beverage to help you beat the summer heat. Plus, since this drink doesn't contain any caffeine, it's perfect for kids and won't keep you up all night.

How to customize your Lemon Bar Frappuccino

If you'd like to go the extra mile, there are a few different ways to spruce up this lemon bar drink. To order a Toasted Lemon Bar Frappuccino, simply swap out the vanilla syrup for toasted vanilla syrup. Unlike the original flavor, the toasted version has been caramelized for a sweeter depth of flavor. If you'd like the vanilla to take a little more of a backseat to the lemon, ask for less scoops of vanilla bean powder (a typical grande Frappuccino has three) or include less pumps of vanilla syrup. On the flip side, if you'd like to up the sweetness level, you can add honey, liquid cane sugar, classic syrup, or sugar packets.

You can also sub out whole milk for your choice of Starbucks' dairy options, which include nonfat, 2%, almond, oat, and coconut milk. And if you go with the toasted vanilla syrup, complement the caramelized sugar flavor (and add more sweetness if desired) by lining your cup with caramel sauce or adding a caramel drizzle on top. If you'd like to branch out even more, start with a Strawberry or White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino instead of vanilla, and add your lemonade from there — both of those flavors pair well with the citrusy fruit, and you'll still get an ice-cold, refreshing treat.
