The Starbucks Frappuccino That Could Change Your Mind About Fruitcake
One holiday tradition that many may feel conflicted about is fruitcake, but when it’s done right, the results are a delicious, moist, and boozy cake. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Starbucks once introduced a Fruitcake Frappuccino that combines the classic fruitcake flavors of spices, nuts, fruit, and toffee.
While Starbucks had a seasonal fruitcake drink on their menu in 2016 — a hazelnut cream-flavored drink with dried fruit, cinnamon, caramel, and matcha on top — it never came back. Luckily, fans have found a way to recreate this drink, making the Fruitcake Frappuccino a secret menu item.
To create your own Fruitcake Frappuccino, start with a white mocha base, then add two pumps of hazelnut and one pump of raspberry. Then, top it off with strawberries and chestnut praline, with a bit more strawberry blended in to achieve the same fruity, nutty, caramelly flavors that you get from an authentic fruitcake.
