Hacking the Starbucks secret menu can be tricky if one is unfamiliar with the items on the menu. One of my favorite secret menu Frappes is the Starbucks strawberry cheesecake Frappuccino and I’ll tell you all about it in this post.
I love strawberry everything and when I first heard of the strawberry cheesecake Frappuccino, I knew I had to try it out. My first guess was an ordinary strawberry and cheese combo, but I was pleasantly surprised to taste a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. This Frappe puts all our favorite ingredients in one cup. This is a customization of the Starbucks official strawberry crème Frappuccino.
Brief History of the Drink
The strawberry cheesecake Frappuccino was first launched in the Asian Starbucks store before its grand debut in Starbucks Australia in January 2015. It caused a stir online as customers raised concerns about the cheese whip. The American market, however, embraced this drink with both arms as a Starbuck secret menu item. The strawberry cheesecake frappe is yet to debut officially in other Starbucks markets.
Is Strawberry cheesecake Frappuccino Still Available at Starbucks?
Yes, it is. It is available officially in Asia and Aussie. Unfortunately for the rest of us, it has to be ordered step by step, but it is as easy as ABC if you get the recipe right as we shall show you in this post. Starbucks baristas might not be trained to whip this up, but you can go around it by placing an order in a way that we shall soon show you.

This drink can have an inclusion of hazelnut syrup. The nutty taste blends well with strawberry for a richer flavor. I also like to add an extra pump of vanilla as it makes it a little exotic and tastier. Ann addition to the strawberries puree does no harm. If you are a strawberry person, you can always add as much as you would like.
