The truth about Starbucks' Baby Yoda Frappuccino

If you've been seeing memes all over the internet of a strange, large-eared, tiny creature sipping soup and wondered, "Who exactly is Baby Yoda and why are people so obsessed?" — well, you're not alone. The little character from The Mandalorian on Disney+ is so beloved on the internet and has gotten so popular, in fact, that you can now order a Baby Yoda Starbucks Frappuccino. If that's not fame, we don't know what is. 

Now, anyone looking at Yoda, baby or otherwise, probably wouldn't think "yum" upon viewing the wrinkled green flesh and large pointy ears. But one enterprising Starbucks fan came up with a delightful concoction that pays homage to the Star Wars character in a way that's actually appetizing (via US Magazine).  

How to order a Baby Yoday Frappuccino at Starbucks

Like many of the sensational drinks that come Starbucks' way, this one is more of a Starbucks secret menu hack than an official item.

That means you'll need to memorize the recipe so you can order it from your favorite barista (just don't forget to tip — apparently baristas hate making special Frappuccinos). 

To order your Baby Yoda Starbucks Frappuccino, ask for a green tea Frappuccino that has caramel drizzled along the inside of the cup, then ask to have it topped with whipped cream, caramel, and caramel ribbon crunch pieces (via Totally the Bomb). The result is a beverage that's similar in color to Baby Yoda — a blend of green and tan, and as sweet in taste as little Baby Yoda looks in disposition. 

If you're too embarrassed to go through the process of requesting such a specific recipe from your barista, you can order through the Starbucks app, where you can customize your order with the anonymity of the internet to protect you — though they might suspect something's up when you come to pick up your mobile order in your favorite Star Wars t-shirt.
