Did someone say Starbucks pumpkin cheesecake frappuccino?! 🎃

WE DID! And we’re sharing how you can order this incredibly delicious, fall-inspired Starbucks secret menu drink the next time you head to Starbucks. Read on to get all the juicy details.

Even though Starbucks pumpkin items, like the pumpkin spice latte & delicious pumpkin cream cold brew, are available right now, we’re still mixing up their menu with some of the hottest (or should I say chilliest) secret menu drink hacks yet!

And thanks to Delish.com, we discovered exactly how you can spice up your next drink order – perfect for fall! 🍂

Except, unlike our other Starbuck’s secret menu drink hacks (like the Apple Pie drink and the Strawberry Cheesecake drink) we sent a few people on our team to test two different concoctions to make sure we’re bringing you the best pumpkin cheesecake drink possible. 🙌

First, we sent Stetson…

For the sake of tradition, we sent our tried and true taste tester, Stetson, to try out the Starbuck’s Pumpkin Cheesecake, and here’s what he said about Delish’s take on this recipe:

“I thought this pumpkin drink was too sweet. It did taste like pumpkin cheesecake though and the graham crackers give it a nice crunch. Not sure I’d order it again.”

Umm…did Stetson just knock on our pumpkin drink? 💁‍♀️

That said, Lina, Amber, and I set out to go try this Starbuck’s pumpkin frappuccino for ourselves, but this time we mixed things up a little by ordering one with a little less syrup and tried it Stetson’s way, too, to see if it was too sweet after all. 😏

Here are our thoughts:

“This frapp is pumpkin heaven! So good! It tastes like a pumpkin milkshake, so it’s definitely a dessert type of sweet drink! If pumpkin is your jam, you’ll absolutely love this!” – Lina


“This Starbucks drink really does taste just like pumpkin cheesecake! WOW! It’s nice and creamy It’s definitely on the sweeter side so bring your sweet tooth with you. However, if you enjoy a sweet treat once and awhile this secret menu drink is going to be perfect for you this fall!

We both tried it with one less pump of pumpkin to limit the sweetness, but it doesn’t even taste the same so we’re rooting for the original Delish recipe because it’s pumpkin heaven just like Lina said.” – Sara & Amber

Here’s what’s in the Starbuck’s Pumpkin Cheesecake frappuccino:

  • Pumpkin Spice Crème Frappuccino (the drink base)
  • Cinnamon Dolce syrup
  • White Mocha syrup
  • Graham Cracker topping

Ready to order? Here’s what you need to say to your Starbucks barista when you get to Starbucks:

“I’d like a grande Pumpkin Crème Frappuccino with 1 pump of cinnamon dolce syrup and 1 pump white mocha. Add graham cracker topping over the whipped cream. Thanks!”

*Keep in mind that this drink is not mobile-order friendly since the graham cracker topping and white mocha syrup cannot be added in the app.

When ordering different sizes for your Starbucks Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino, make sure to adjust the number of white mocha and cinnamon dolce pumps accordingly:

  • Tall: 1/2 white mocha, 1/2 cinnamon dolce
  • Grande: 1 white mocha, 1 cinnamon dolce
  • Venti: 2 white mocha, 2 cinnamon dolce
  • Trenta: 3 white mocha, 3 cinnamon dolce

    Sound tasty, but I can’t imagine the amount of sugar and fat in this drink!

    • Jen

      Sounds amazing but I’ve recently lost 10 pounds and I would never have that kind of sugar again. I wish Starbucks had more sugar-free options.

      • Lisa

        I totally agree with you, Jen. I would love to see Starbucks do some stevia sweetened drinks. I found an amazing brand that I have loved for years. ( Trim Healthy Mama) I used to make a pumpkin drink with unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened pumpkin, Stevia, and all the spices. I did it cold in the blender. I can’t remember if I used ice? Heavy cream would be a nice addition… and perhaps some cream cheese.

        • Jen

          That sounds so good! Thanks Lisa! Happy Fall! 🙂

    I realize that the prices can vary from each location being the stand alones or Target locations but can you guys tell us what you paid for the drinks? I’m just curious with the extra add on and things. Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question, Chesca! For us it was $6.95 for a grande.

    • Ashley

      I use my barnes and noble membership for 10% off all drinks and pay with my target red card for another 5% which is 15% off total! Just a thought for you!!

    That would probably be like 700 calories of my allotted 1200 a day. 🤣

    This is a great TREAT!!! Losing weight and having treats (all in moderation) is a good thing!!! 😉 Enjoy!
