Starbucks Secret Menu: Maple Mocha Frappuccino (taste, ingredients, caffeine, calories, copycat recipe, and more information)

Did you miss out on the infamous Maple Macchiato? The Starbucks Maple Mocha Frappuccino is the closest way to make up for it.

The Starbucks Maple Mocha Frappuccino is a secret menu frappuccino prepared with just white mocha frappuccino and a few pumps of toffee nut syrup. When the maple macchiato debuted in Canada, I thought it was a matter of days before it launched in the US and I get to indulge in it. I was bummed to discover that this wasn’t in Starbucks’ plans, and even worse, it got discontinued. As I was whining about this to my barista recently, he told me I could still have the same flavors in the Maple Mocha Frappuccino. After the first sip, I was impressed with how the maple flavors were perfectly replicated in this Frappuccino.

A brief history of the drink

The Starbucks Maple Mocha Frappuccino was designed by Maddy S. to mimic the retired maple macchiato sometime in 2015. This was also around when this Frappuccino’s base drink peaked. The toffee nut syrup used in this recipe was introduced in 2013.

What’s in a Starbucks Maple Mocha Frappuccino? – (Ingredients)

  • White Mocha Frappuccino: This is the base of the Maple Mocha Frappuccino, and it contains coffee, coffee frappuccino syrup, milk, white chocolate mocha sauce, and ice.
  • Toffee nut Syrup: Used in the Frappuccino to mimic maple flavors because Starbucks doesn’t offer maple syrup. This syrup is manufactured with preservatives, water, sugar, flavorings, and salt.

So what does Starbucks’ Maple Mocha Frappuccino taste like?

The Starbucks Maple Mocha Frappuccino is creamy, thick, and velvety, thanks to the white mocha frappuccino base. Also, this Frappuccino has rich, warm, nutty flavors, which mimic the palate of maple syrup, and this is due to toffee nut syrup. The light, chocolaty, and coffee flavors in the Maple Mocha Frappuccino are also from the base drink.

Ways to customize a Maple Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks

The number of toffee nut syrup pumps can be adjusted to your liking. Generally, this Frappuccino uses 1 pump in a tall, 2 in a Grande, and 3 in a venti.

The roast type of coffee added is also up to you.

Any milk offered at Starbucks can be used in this Frappuccino; however, we recommend dairy milk for a richer and creamier frappuccino.

Depending on how rich you want the white chocolate flavors to be in your Frappuccino, ask the barista for more or fewer white mocha sauce pumps.
