Banana probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when asked about drink flavors, but Dutch Bros proves the fruity flavor is worth considering. The Oregon-born drive-through coffee franchise includes banana flavoring in multiple beverages, and we’re walking you through some of them below.
And who knows? After reading how DB makes them work, you might want to give banana drinks a chance.
- Banana is a star ingredient in many beverages at Dutch Bros Coffee, from coffee-based treats to energy drinks.
- Items like the Banana Split Freeze and the Banana Flapjack let banana enthusiasts enjoy the flavors of their favorite banana-based breakfast or dessert offerings in drink form.

Roasty Roundup: Standard and Secret Menu Dutch Bros Banana Drinks
Banana Bread Breve
Banana bread is a beloved treat. It was Delish’s most searched recipe of 2020. With a reputation like that, it’s unsurprising that Dutch Bros developed a drink inspired by it!
Meet the Banana Bread Breve. The base drink here is a breve (a blend of espresso coffee and heavy cream), and the added hazelnut and banana syrups make it taste a lot like the baked good.
Frozen coffee fanatics know they can’t go wrong with one of DB’s Blended Freeze beverages. And if they’re also craving banana flavor, they can find satisfaction with an Irie Freeze. This particular version of the chilled coffee smoothie comes with splashes of coconut and banana flavor — yum!
Did you know Dutch Bros sells more than the coffee, tea, and smoothie drinks you’d typically find at a café? DB also sells Rebel Energy Drinks. One of these is the Fire Lizard.
The Fire Lizard contains the chain’s Rebel Energy Drink base, plus splashes of strawberry, banana, and orange flavors. It doesn’t just taste great; it gives you the kick in the pants you need to make it through the day.
Have you ever wished you could eat ice cream for breakfast? We’ve all been there, craving a banana split in the wee hours of the morning. During those times, we’re grateful for the Dutch Bros Banana Split Freeze.
Sweet vanilla, banana, and dark chocolate flavors take the blended espresso-milk mixture to the next level. Sipping one of these in the morning will make you feel like you’re enjoying your favorite dessert for breakfast without guilt.
If you’re craving something that tastes like a Banana Split but don’t want anything frozen, try a Banana Split hot cocoa instead. It’s just as delicious. Only instead of being cool and refreshing, it’s warm and cozy.
It might be surprising to find DB’s Bubblegum flavor combination on a list of the franchise’s banana drinks. However, banana is a crucial part of the equation whether you order it as a shake or sparkling soda. Banana, strawberry, and vanilla flavors play nicely in every Dutch Bros Bubblegum drink. We know it sounds like an unorthodox mixture, but don’t knock it until you try it!
It isn’t unusual to pair up banana and coconut; they’re a perfect pair. Toss dark chocolate into the mix, and things only get better. The Bob flavor combination at Dutch Bros brings this trio together, and the result is totally yummy. Try The Bob in a Blended Freeze, hot chocolate, or shake. You won’t be disappointed.
The Sweet Sunrise is another one of the banana-flavored Dutch Rebels you can order when you need a solid energy boost. Banana isn’t the only fruity flavor you’ll taste in this beverage. There are orange, passion fruit, and peach flavors present, too.
The Sweet Sunrise flavor combination can also go into a shake, sparkling soda, lemonade, or iced tea. So, even if you don’t need or want a kick of caffeine, you have other options for enjoying this fruity blend.
Wouldn’t it be nice to jet off on a Hawaiian adventure anytime you want? Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the luxury of doing that. But we can drive over to Dutch Bros and have a Hawaiian Lemonade. No, it’s not exactly the same, but the blend of lemonade and strawberry, peach, orange, and banana flavors gives off all of the tropical vibes. Plus, you can always close your eyes and pretend you’re drinking it on a Big Island beach.
You can also order a Hawaiian in the form of a DB Rebels Energy Drink, shake, sparkling soda, or iced tea.
Banana Cream Pie
Not much beats a slice of banana cream pie. But you don’t have to bake one to experience its flavors. The Dutch Bros Banana Cream Pie flavor combo, available in hot cocoa and shake form, gives you all the goodness of the classic dessert with minimal hassle. The next time you’re at DB, ask the broista for a Banana Cream Pie drink. The banana-white chocolate flavor blend satisfies the sweet tooth for sure.
If you’re a Dutch Bros regular, you’re probably no stranger to the Golden Eagle. This flavor combination, a mixture of vanilla and caramel, is one of the franchise’s most popular, and it’s commonly enjoyed as a breve.
Add a bit of banana flavor to the mix, and the Golden Eagle becomes the Golden Banana, a sweet and creamy treat perfect for anyone fond of caramelized bananas.
The Flapjack Chai isn’t a standard menu Dutch Bros item, but it’s a bestseller at many DB locations for sure. The beverage is made by adding salted caramel, white chocolate, and vanilla flavors to a classic chai latte. The result tastes a bit like everyone’s favorite breakfast food: pancakes!
Naturally, when you add banana flavor to the mix, the Flapjack Chai becomes the Banana Flapjack, and it brings the goodness of a stack of banana pancakes to your morning energy booster. So good!
As you can see, Dutch Bros Coffee has no shortage of banana drinks for curious coffee drinkers — non-coffee lovers can get in on the fun, too! — to try. Check out one of the standard menu items or the secret menu Golden Banana and Banana Flapjack for a fun, fruity spin on your typical DB order.
