The Starbucks “secret menu” features all kinds of crazy concoctions inspired by candies, popular breakfast cereal, and even mythical creatures. But, for the most part, people think of drinks when it comes to these handy hacks. However, there is at least one food option on the secret menu, and it’s the perfect way to start your day: the Oatmeal Latte. Here is how you order the Oatmeal Latte: Order the oatmeal but asked for steamed milk in place of water. If you’re dairy-free, you can ask for non-dairy instead. To add a boost to your oatmeal, order a shot of espresso (or two if you really need it!) and have the barista pour it on top of the oatmeal.
If the barista doesn’t add the espresso to your oatmeal, order it on the side, and simply pour it in yourself. Top your oatmeal with nuts and sugar, and you’re good to go! You end up with a satisfying breakfast that features a decent amount of eye-opening caffeine. It’s the perfect all-in-one meal. So many of Starbucks secret menu items are about reliving our childhood with flavors that take us back, whether it’s a favorite movie or candy or cereal. Their latest addition to the secret menu is a real blast from the past — our beloved Flinstones-inspired cereal, Fruity Pebbles! Instagrammer Snack Gator first shared the freshest flavor of Frappuccino,’ and he was kind enough to also share the recipe, along with a photo of the swirling blush pink and white drink. While we might miss all the bright, fun colors of Fruity Pebbles cereal in this drink, as long as the flavors are there, that’s all that matters.
To order a Fruity Pebbles Frappuccino, you’ll need to start with a Strawberries and Creme Frapp as your base. Next up, add two and a half pumps of vanilla syrup followed by one pump of classic syrup and one raspberry syrup pump. Finally, it’s up to you but if you want more of a punch to your drink, add another splash of another fruity drink. To give you an idea, you can add orange mango juice or lemonade. Last but certainly not least, don’t forget the whipped cream on top! You’ll be left with an intensely fruity and sweet treat that’s ideal for cooling off during the sweltering days of summer. You can likely adjust the recipe as needed to accommodate any dairy-free needs. Stop by your local Starbucks to give it a try. As always, don’t ask for it by name, but rather order it step by step — and remember to tip your barista!
