About Starbucks Pineapple Drinks
I have great news for all of you pineapple lovers!
Starbucks recently announced the introduction of some incredibly tasty new pineapple drinks to the menu.

So how is pineapple included in Starbucks drinks, anyway?
Do the Baristas cut up fresh pineapples on the spot, or are these drinks flavored with pineapple syrup?
The answer is that in Starbucks pineapple comes in many forms.
Some pineapple beverages include real pineapple pieces, some contain syrups, and others contain fresh pineapple juice. It will depend on what you order!
You can customize many Starbucks drinks by adding ginger syrup, pineapple flavorings, and diced pineapple pieces as well.

Ordering Custom “Secret Menu” Starbucks Pineapple Drinks
People craving something new and unique can also enjoy an array of custom-made “secret menu” drinks with the tropical flavors of pineapple added in!
The Pineapple Bliss Drink, for instance, can be ordered by asking for a Grande Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade with no inclusions, a scoop of ginger turmeric powder, and two pumps of pineapple syrup mixed in.
Then, ask your barista to top it all off with vanilla sweet cream cold foam and just a little bit more pineapple syrup. And voilà!
It’s island bliss in a cup. What a perfect way to get a little more summer in your life.
Or, ‘if you like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the drive-through’, the “secret menu” Piña Colada Frappuccino from Starbucks is totally worth ordering.
After going viral on TikTok, it’s no secret that this drink is a hit! This blended beverage contains coconut and pineapple notes for a delicious way to unwind. To order this off-menu drink, ask for a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with coconut milk, two pumps of pineapple ginger syrup, and whipped cream on top!
Starbucks Pineapple Drinks for Kids
In addition to the fact that these refreshing beverages are downright tasty, fresh pineapple drinks from Starbucks often don’t have any caffeine. And this makes them great for kids!
Children love the “secret menu” Pineapple Dole Whip Drink. It’s a frappuccino that tastes a whole lot like Disney World’s notorious Dole Whip Smoothie!
To get this drink for your kids (or for yourself), ask for a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino but request that the milk is replaced with sweet cream. Then, ask for a blended pineapple base.
Coconut milk can also be substituted for regular milk to add a creamy and nutritious boost.
Since this drink is blended and topped with whipped cream, it’s perfect for your little ones!
