Ube is the new hot thing. It doesn’t matter if you are a hipster or a housewife, the cool thing is to get yourself anything of the ube variety.
Ube is also known as a Purple Yam, and I first had one 9 years ago — but of course, I wasn’t cool enough at that time to realize the gold I was holding in my hand.
The Ube is usually paired with sweet things — like a dessert. It’s deep purple color is not only tasty, it makes a crazy good Instagram worthy food.
Starbucks does not officially have anything Ube, which is totally unfortunate. BUT, I have created a blended Frappuccino beverage that is as close to Ube as you are going to get.
Here is how to order the Ube Frappuccino off the Starbucks Secret Menu.
Okay, first of all, you cannot just walk up to your favorite barista, and ask for an Ube Frappuccino. As this beverage is on the Secret Menu, you must take the recipe in to the baristas at Starbucks.
They will, however, be more than happy to accommodate this AWESOME beverage!
Ask for a Grande Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with 2 pumps of Toffee Nut Syrup.
Then you are going to ask for a scoop of Dragon Fruit Inclusions, and a scoop of Blackberry Inclusions. These are the dried fruits that you can get added to drinks, but you want to have them BLENDED into this Frappuccino.
Now, you are going to get fancy and add half a banana for creaminess and flavor. It is going to give you an awesome, more traditional texture!
Of course, you want them to top that bad boy with Whipped Cream after they pour it in the cup. You aren’t living life right, if you don’t get whipped cream!
That’s it!! Put the lid on it, stick a straw in, and Enjoy!!
