What exactly is in the real Starbucks Pink Drink?

According to Starbucks.com, the popular iced Pink Drink is made using their Strawberry Acai Refresher (which has white grape concentrate and green coffee extract), coconut milk, and freeze-dried strawberries. The green coffee is what gives it the caffeine component.

My homemade version will be using green tea, coconut milk, and fresh strawberry puree. So to be clear this won’t taste exact but has similar vibes using easy-to-find ingredients! Honestly, I enjoyed this homemade version even more!

Tips to keep in mind when making a copycat Starbucks Pink Drink recipe:

    • I start by pureeing fresh strawberries using an immersion blender. You can mash them or even use a blender instead.
    • You can use any type of milk for this recipe: I’m a fan of coconut milk (and it’s what Starbucks uses for their Pink Drink), but almond milk or regular dairy milk will work great for this recipe as well.
    • I sweetened my drink with a little sugar, but feel free to choose a sweetener of choice. Classic simple syrup , agave, or even honey would all be other ways to make sure your drink is sweetened to taste!
    • Be sure to brew your green tea ahead of time so it has time to chill in the fridge.
