How To Order A Starbucks Frappuccino That Tastes Like A Wendy's Frosty

Wendy's released the Frosty Cream Cold Brew earlier in 2024, taking the classic milkshake-like treat into a coffee-forward direction, but for another twist on the concept, you can also order a secret menu Frosty Frappuccino at Starbucks. Who says you can't have the best of both worlds? Two fan-invented "secret menu" Starbucks drinks allow you to order a chocolate Frosty-inspired Frappuccino, and other formulas for different flavors are also spreading around the internet.

To get the chocolate version of the Frosty Frappuccino, order a mocha Frappuccino with heavy whipping cream, two pumps of vanilla syrup, additional whipped topping, and a mocha syrup drizzle. The heavy whipping cream gives the drink a thicker texture that's more like an ice cream-based Wendy's Frosty than the standard Frappuccino, as does the inclusion of extra ice. Not to say one product is better than the other, but the Starbucks Frosty Frappuccino also comes with the benefit of a little caffeine, if that's something you could use.

Alternatively, you can start your order with a vanilla bean Frappuccino. Next, add two pumps of white mocha sauce and three pumps of standard mocha sauce. To thicken the drink, you can request heavy whipping cream and/or extra ice, all blended together for a delicious ice cream-esque treat. Fans of the classic chocolate Frosty will enjoy either of these versions.

Customize your Frosty Frappuccino with other flavors

Your dream Starbucks and Wendy's crossover doesn't have to be limited to a chocolate Frosty Frappuccino. By changing up a few ingredients, you can enjoy other Frosty-inspired flavors. For instance, for a vanilla Frosty Frappuccino, order a vanilla bean Frappuccino, thickened with heavy whipping cream and/or extra ice.

Another unforgettable fast food milkshake to recreate is Wendy's limited edition strawberry Frosty. For the closest recreation, start your order with the aforementioned vanilla Frosty Frappuccino, then request strawberry puree or Strawberry Açaí Refresher base to be blended in. You can also have your drink topped off with freeze-dried strawberries for extra flavor. Alternatively, you can order a chocolate Frosty Frappuccino with strawberry puree for more of a chocolate-covered strawberry moment.

Using the vanilla or chocolate Frosty Frappuccino recipes as your base, you can customize your drink with countless other syrups, sauces, and purees available at Starbucks. No need to wait for your favorite discontinued Frosty flavor, such as peppermint or pumpkin spice, to return to Wendy's.

Take the Frosty Frappuccino up a notch by adding coffee

Don't get us wrong, the Frosty is a delicious treat, but sometimes you want an extra bit of pizazz (or maybe you're having trouble keeping your eyes open in the morning). The solution? Ordering a coffee-based Frosty drink at Starbucks. To be clear, this particular drink's default texture doesn't quite mimic that of the Wendy's Frosty, but the flavors more than make up for it.

First, order a regular cold brew with ice, whipping cream, and white mocha sauce. Next, ask for the drink to be topped with cold foam made from heavy cream, vanilla bean powder, and mocha sauce. The resulting drink tastes just like a chocolate Frosty, but with an extra caffeine kick from the coffee.

If you'd like the texture to be closer to that of a Frosty, try ordering a cold brew blended with a Frappuccino base, heavy cream, and ice. Now that you have a Frappuccino base included, the drink will be more thick, like ice cream. Top it off with the same cold foam mentioned above, and you have one excellent coffee-forward treat.
