What’s Hazelnut, Exactly?

Hazelnut is a fruit from the hazel tree that brings numerous health benefits, explaining why many health-conscious individuals prefer these drinks.

But besides that, it also tastes good. It has a naturally nutty and sweet flavor that complements different kinds of food.

That’s why we have hazelnut syrup and even the famous hazelnut spread we know as Nutella.

A Quick List of Starbucks Hazelnut Drinks

That said, it’s unsurprising that an ever-innovative coffee shop readily serves Starbucks hazelnut drinks.

Some are easily seen in the menu, but many are from the secret menu at Starbucks, which means you can request the barista to customize these hazelnut coffee drinks.

  • Hazelnut Bianco Latte
  • Blonde Hazelnut Latte
  • Hazelnut Malt Frappuccino
  • Blueberry Muffin Frappuccino
  • Shortbread Cookie Frappuccino
  • Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato
  • Betty White Frappucino
  • Golden Girls Frappuccino
  • French Toast Frappuccino

The 9 Best Starbucks Hazelnut Coffee Drinks

Let’s now go in-depth with these drinks. What are they, and what will you tell your barista if they ask?

1 –  Hazelnut Bianco Latte

When we say latte, it’s essentially milk with espresso. This drink is espresso mixed with infused milk sweetened with hazelnut and can be served hot or over ice.

The Hazelnut Bianco Latte is a sweeter and more delicious twist to your daily espresso needs! You can make this at home if you have the Starbucks espresso roast capsule and milk too.

It’s a more indulgent drink in the coffee world since the whole milk contributes to the rich taste of the Hazelnut Bianco Latte. A 16 fl. oz. drink has:

  • Sugar: 35 grams
  • Fat Content: 8 grams
  • Caffeine: 135 mg

Another way to whip up this drink at home is using an Aeroccino frother. Froth your milk as you add an espresso shot (or two), followed by shaved chocolate. You can also use white chocolate.

2 – Blonde Hazelnut Latte

The typical Reserve espresso Starbucks coffee beans are dark roast, responsible for the strong coffee taste in many beverages.

Recognizing that not everyone likes it, they’ve also introduced Blonde espresso shots featuring lighter roasted coffee. You can get this drink hot or iced.

Mix that in with hazelnut syrup-infused milk, and you get a lovely Blonde Hazelnut Latte that’s perfect for that morning kick minus the overly acidic taste of strong coffee.

It’s also not bad for those who watch their weight and calorie count since the sugar levels are not that high.

  • Fat Content: 7 grams
  • Caffeine: 170 mg

3 – Hazelnut Malt Frappuccino

What happens when you spice up classic vanilla with hazelnut and malt and blend them all?

You get a perfect combo of creamy coffee with a delectably nutty taste, also known as the Hazelnut Malt Frappuccino. It tastes like the hazelnut chocolate spread Nutella in a cup!

If your local barista isn’t sure what this is, you can break it down into this:

  • One tall (12 fl. oz.) Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
  • Two hazelnut syrup pumps
  • Nutmeg powder

To save money, you can DIY your own Hazelnut Malt Frappuccino with your vanilla bean powder, two hazelnut syrup pumps, and nutmeg powder.

4 – Blueberry Muffin Frappuccino

The Blueberry Muffin Frappuccino isn’t part of the Reserve espresso Starbucks coffee options, but you can also customize it with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino.

If your Starbucks Coffee branch allows you, request fresh blueberries to be blended into your drink. Then add in hazelnut syrup, caramel crunch topping, and whipped cream. Yum!

5 – Shortbread Cookie Frappuccino

Have a massive throwback as you achieve a shortbread cookie-flavored coffee drink! Start with a classic vanilla bean frappuccino (or any drink containing vanilla bean powder).

Add two pumps of hazelnuts syrup, a sprinkle of caramel crunch, and whipped cream to get that cookie taste.

This sounds amazing alongside your regular morning toast, hazelnut chocolate spread, and nutmeg powder.

6 – Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato

Ah, this one’s our personal favorite. The Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato is a balance of rich flavors without compromising the strong taste of the two espresso shots.

To make it even better, it doesn’t use dairy milk. It’s steamed coconut milk, which is 10x better when mixed with coffee. It’s also an excellent alternative to dairy. The finishing touch is the mocha drizzle.

You can also do this at home if you like.

All you need two espresso shots, hazelnut syrup, and steamed coconut milk. This coffee beverage can be served hot, or you can also add ice cubes – both are good!

If you’re feeling indulgent, add a scoop of ice cream or two into your coffee. You’ll have a very creamy iced coffee drink.

7 – Betty White Frappuccino

Are you tired of the usual Iced White Mocha Frappuccino?

Add some hazelnut syrup, vanilla syrups, and whipped cream topped with a sprinkle of caramel crunch, and you’ll have a transformed drink.

And yes, this Starbucks drink is named after the iconic Betty White!

8 – Golden Girls Frappuccino

Speaking of Betty White, of course, we also have a Golden Girls version. Order an Iced White Mocha Frappuccino and request hazelnut syrup, vanilla syrup, and caramel crunch topping.

It’s similar to the Betty White Frappuccino! It’s sweet, delicious, and tastes like cheesecake.

9 – French Toast Frappuccino

The French Toast Frappuccino is another entry from Starbucks’ secret menu.

The barista starts with an Iced Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with sweet cream, then adds a hazelnut syrup and cinnamon dolce syrup pump.

We think it’s the perfect pair for your regular morning toast topped with choco hazelnut spread (or Nutella). It’s hazelnuts heaven!

Can I Make These Starbucks Hazelnut Drinks and Coffee At Home?

Yes, of course! A lot of Starbucks’ ingredients are accessible. You can achieve the taste better with the Starbucks espresso roast capsule. But if not, there are many recipes online.

Check your cupboard for ingredients and see what you can whip up:

  • Hazelnut syrups or powder
  • Vanilla bean powder
  • Vanilla syrups
  • Nutmeg powder (for a delectably nutty taste)
  • Lightly roasted coffee for Blonde drinks
  • Mocha drizzle (syrup)
  • A scoop(s) of cinnamon dolce
  • Infused milk
  • Shaved chocolate / white chocolate
  • Whole milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Espresso shot
  • Coffee, of course!
  • Aeroccino frother

Are These Hazelnut Coffee Beverages Healthy?

For health-conscious individuals who calorie count, you may find the sugar levels of these hazelnut coffee beverages higher than typical lattes.

While they’re not entirely unhealthy, we can’t deny that these are still flavored coffee with a rich mix of milk and sugar.

Nothing beats the health benefits of pure, black coffee. However, you can opt for a coffee drink that isn’t over-flavored. You can also find an alternative to dairy milk or lessen the milk altogether.

Starbucks has more hazelnut coffee drinks than you realize! There are so many to choose from, whether lattes or frappuccino options.
