Summer is fun, but nothing will make your summer better than Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino. Making the Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino is easy and enjoyable, as you will notice from my menu.
On one of the hottest summer afternoons, I went to visit my mom. I arrived at her door just as a delivery person was leaving. A full Starbucks cup and a pizza packaging were on the small table on her porch. I helped myself with the drink – which I later paid dearly. Although it cost me much, I discovered the Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino, one of my favorite drinks. I have learned a simple recipe to make it, and I will teach you.
Brief history of the drink.
Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino orders were first made in 2013 after Starbucks introduced Valencia Orange mango and orange mango refreshers. Customers liked the drinks and began customizing them, which immediately bore the delicious Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino.
Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino Overview
What’s in a Starbucks Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino – (ingredients)
The Starbucks orange creamsicle Frappuccino originates from the drink’s ingredients: real orange fruit juice, milk, classic syrup, crème base, and whipped cream topping.
- Real orange fruit juice – is one of the primary ingredients and majorly contributes to the flavor and nutritional composition of the drink. It also gives it an attractive orange color.
- Milk – is also a significant drink component and contributes to its cholesterol and protein content.
- The classic syrup – is a sweetener Starbucks uses for most iced coffees, Frappuccino, and shaken teas. It is liquid sugar and easily mixes with iced drinks.
- Starbucks cream base – is made with sugar, xantham gum, and sweetened drinks. The whipped cream improves the texture of the drink.

The drink is served in four main cups: Venti, Grande, tall and short, 20fl oz, 16 fl oz, 12 fl oz, and 8 fl oz, respectively. If you are taking the drink for the first time, I would advise that you order a small or tall size and see if you like it. Since it is one of my favorites, I usually order Grande or Venti.

Ways to Customize an Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino at Starbucks.
You can customize the drink by changing the type of milk. Using oat soy or coconut milk will be excellent, especially if you are a vegetarian. Changing the milk will eliminate it as a dairy product and significantly reduce the drink’s cholesterol level, making it healthier.
Additionally, you can blend orange mango juice, milk, and crème base to make Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino, especially when the drink is out of season.
Adding a vanilla syrup gives it a vanilla flavor twist, which is excellent if you love the vanilla flavor.
Finally, you can add an orange slice for garnishing and give it a citrus twist.
