Starbucks' Love Bean Frappuccino Recipe

Have you heard of Starbucks’ Secret Menu? Have you ordered anything off of it?

WHAT??  A Secret Menu???

That’s right. Many chain restaurants, from McDonald’s to In-n-Out Burger to Applebee’s to Olive Garden and many, many more, offer secret combinations and additions that don’t appear on the “official” menu, but you can order if you know what to ask for.  Thanks to the internet, it is easier than ever revolutionize your dining experience.

Starbucks has one of the most extensive Secret Menus in the industry.  They recently debuted 3 frosty New Valentine’s Day Frappuccinos!

We were lucky enough to get the recipe from our buddies at PopSugar for the best one, the Love Bean.

Make one this weekend for yourself and your Sweetie.
