1. Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy

The taste of the Cotton Candy Frost may come across as a tad artificial to some. However, it carries a nostalgic flavor that I personally find enjoyable.

It’s typically made with blue raspberry flavor and white chocolate sauce

Hey Joe’s Pro Tip:

Here’s the exciting part – if you request a switch from blue to red raspberry, you’ll be treated to a vibrant pink drink.


  • Blue raspberry syrup
  • White chocolate sauce
  • Ice-cream mix

2. Ninja Frost

Prepare yourself for the Ninja Frost—a minty blend of creme de menthe syrup and luscious white chocolate sauce.

The closest comparison I can draw would be the peppermint white mocha or a Thin Mint cookie. So if you’re in the mood for something refreshing, give this frost a try.

Combining cinnamon, white chocolate, and chocolate macadamia nut syrup, the Snickerdoodle is a match made in Frost heaven.

For a unique twist, add a shot of espresso. And voila, you’ve got yourself a cinnamon coffee crisp.

Strawberry Lavender

Now, let’s talk about a new kid on the block – Dutch Bros Strawberry Lavender Frost. The drink is a blend of fruity and floral notes.

Some might find it slightly perfumey, but I don’t mind it. The strawberry is sweet and refreshing, while the lavender reminds me of Earl Grey. 

Hey Joe’s Pro Tip:

If the floral taste is not your thing, you can ask for more strawberry or extra whip to balance it out.

Every day can feel like the 4th of July with the Freedom Frost, a secret menu frost bursting with raspberry, blue raspberry, and white chocolate flavors.

Hey Joe’s Pro Tip:

Ask the bro-ista to layer the flavors (rather than mixing them), creating a stunning red, white, and blue striped drink.


  • Raspberry syrup
  • Blue raspberry syrup
  • Vanilla syrup
  • Ice-cream mix

Hey Joe’s Pro Tip:

I recommend asking for extra cinnamon and nutmeg sprinkles – it makes the drink even more ‘spicy’ and enjoyable (if that’s your thing).


  • Cinnamon syrup
  • Caramel syrup
  • White chocolate sauce
  • Ice-cream mix

8. Peach Ring

Peach Ring

If you’re hankering for a candy fix, the Peach Ring Frost could just be your next favorite.

Made with a dreamy combo of white chocolate, passion fruit, and peach drizzle, this drink does taste exactly like the candy.

Hey Joe’s Pro Tip:

I found that the syrup tends to settle at the bottom quickly. Give it a stir before enjoying to re-combine the flavors.


  • White chocolate sauce
  • Peach syrup
  • Passionfruit syrup
  • Ice-cream mix

9. Cap’ Crunch

Captain Crunch Frost will have you feeling giddy like a kid again. It tastes just like the breakfast cereal we all know and love, with a fruity aftertaste.

  • Hazelnut syrup
  • Ice-cream mix

10. Birthday Cake Frost

Dutch Frost

Buttery, vanilla-y, with a silky mouthfeel. That’s how I’d describe the Birthday Cake Frost.

Crafted using almond roca syrup and white chocolate sauce, this frost will have you thinking funfetti cake.

The topping of whipped cream and confetti sprinkles (both optional) adds a playful touch, making every sip feel like a celebration.


  • Almond roca syrup
  • White chocolate sauce
  • Confetti sprinkles
  • Ice-cream mix

Customize Your Frost With My Tips

Now that you have an idea of your next order, let me help you unlock the secrets to customizing these frosty treats.

From enhancing flavors to tweaking textures, we’ll explore the options that’ll make your Frost experience truly one-of-a-kind. 

Brewed Coffee

Make It Caffeinated

Elevate your Dutch Bros Frost experience with espresso shots. Simply ask your Bro-ista to add regular or white coffee to your frost.

You can even opt for white coffee if you enjoy a more mellow taste and a higher caffeine boost.

Espresso shots work best in flavors such as the Snickerdoodle, German Chocolate, White Zombie, and Dutch Canyon. 

Add Extra Drizzle

If the flavor in your Frost feels a little flat, treat yourself to an extra touch of drizzle. Sauces and drizzles can pump up the flavor profile significantly.

Drizzles are typically topped over the finished drink but you can ask for it to line the cup.

Make sure to choose a drizzle flavor that complement your Frost. Consider popular options like strawberry, caramel, or chocolate for a safe bet.

Make It Parfait-Style

Getting your order parfait-style is another way to elevate your Dutch Frost experience.

This luscious customization involves layering whipped cream within the drink, creating a delightful contrast of textures.

Perfect for those who crave extra creaminess and decadence, a Frost parfait-style adds a touch of indulgence to your favorite beverage. I highly recommend this pro move!

Dutch Frost: Drink Profile

Having explored the different drinks and customization options, we’ll look into the four characteristics that make up the Frost.

We’ll uncover the distinct ingredients that lend it its character, explore its unique taste profile, and walk you through its preparation process.

Vanilla Bean Frappuccino With Caramel


First, Dutch Bros’ ice cream mix takes center stage.

This frosty base gains its distinctive flavor from various syrups and sauces, blended together to create a smooth and creamy texture.

You’ll find fruity, chocolatey, and classic options to choose from. Plus, you can even customize your frost by adding a variety of toppings and drizzles.

What It Tastes Like

Dutch Bros Frost is a creamy delight with a taste that varies based on the flavor syrups you choose.

A vanilla-like ice cream mix is the base, its sweetness, and creaminess setting the stage. Choose a flavor from the menu or pick your own, and the Frost transforms into a next-level treat.

Want it extra sweet or with extra flavors? Just ask! The bro-istas will amp up the flavor and sweetness, making your Frost even more irresistible.

How Its Made

Each Dutch Frost begins with their proprietary ice cream mix.

Next, the bro-istas blend in flavor syrups based on your order. Any flavor customizations will also be added at this stage.

Finally, it’s topped off with whipped cream. However, you’re in control! You can choose to swap the whipped cream for a soft top or add an extra drizzle of flavor.

Nutrition information

Yes, it is a tasty treat, but be mindful of the calories!

These delicious drinks pack quite a punch, ranging from 400 to a whopping 1000 calories all thanks to the ice-cream mix.

Enjoy your Frost, but remember to keep it balanced!

Your choice of flavor and size makes a big difference. So, if you’re watching your waistline, consider opting for a smaller size or a lighter flavor.

More Questions

Do Dutch Bros Frosts have caffeine?

Good news! Dutch Bros Frosts are caffeine-free since they don’t contain coffee.

However, if you’re craving that extra energy boost, you can always ask the bro-ista to add espresso shots to your Frost.

Just remember, this may slightly change the consistency, but it’ll give you the caffeine kick you’re looking for.

What is the difference between a frost and a freeze at Dutch Bros?

At Dutch Bros, a ‘frost’ is a blended ice cream beverage, while a ‘freeze’ is a blended coffee drink with ice.

You can think of a Freeze(1) as a frappe or frappuccino and the Frost more as a milkshake.

Frosts are sweet, rich, and calorie-dense, whereas Freezes provide a refreshing, caffeinated kick, perfect for coffee lovers seeking a cool treat.

Does a Dutch Frost Have Ice Cream?

Yes, Dutch Bros Frosts contain ice cream.

Their proprietary ice cream mix is the main ingredient in all Frost beverages. If you prefer to skip the ice cream, try the Dutch Freeze instead.

Alternatively, you can ask the bro-ista for a Kick-Me Mix, but keep in mind that it still contains dairy.

Is a Dutch Frost a Milkshake?

I found myself asking the same question at first. And the answer is yes. The frost is indeed a milkshake but with a unique twist!

As Dutch Bros’ own rendition of a classic shake, you can expect something exciting and out-of-the-ordinary.

The main ingredient is ice cream, but their flavors and mix-ins take the Frost to a whole new level of deliciousness.
