Sharing is caring!

This Starbucks Pink Drink has been on my mind since I first tried it.  It is super refreshing and a nice change from the usual coffee drinks. I mean who could resist a pink drink! Now you can treat yourself to a pink drink anytime with this delicious pink drink recipe.

Starbucks Pink Drink

Having to run to Starbucks to get my daily fix can be a drag as well as a bit pricey.  This homemade version of the pink drink really captures the store-bought version with all the convenience of home.

Easy and Delicious Starbucks Pink Drink

The ingredients are simple and you can whip this up really quickly.  Make a big batch to keep in the fridge and just add the strawberries every time you pour a glass.

What do you call the pink drink at Starbucks?

You can call the pink drink at Starbucks a Strawberry Acia Refresher! Made with coconut milk and strawberries or you can ask to use blackberries as well for even more of a twist.

Is Starbucks Pink Drink Healthy?

The Pink Drink is a healthier option than some drinks at Starbucks. You can choose if you want your drink sweetened or unsweetened. So I’m a sense your the dividing factor of how healthy your drink is.

Just remember in moderation it is okay to have a flavored drink like this. Going overboard of course isn’t a healthy option.

Does Starbucks Pink Drink Have Caffeine?

You will find this Pink Drink is lightly caffeinated. Now if you buy a different tea to use it would then depend if that tea has caffeine or not.

What If I Cant Find Freeze Dried Strawberries

Starbucks uses freeze dried strawberries in the Pink Drink. If you can’t find them opt for fresh or even reach for frozen!

I have used frozen on hot days and it chills down my drink without watering it down as it melts!

How to Make The Pink Drink from Starbucks at Home

Start by steeping your tea bags and allowing it to fully cool. Once you tea is cooked add in your grape juice and stir.

Then pour in your coconut milk and taste to see if fits your flavoring preference. Pile in the ice and even add in some sliced strawberries for color and flavor.

If you want your drink sweetened you can use sweetened coconut milk or add in a sweetener to dress it up. If you prefer regular sugar just mix with hot tea so it allows the sugar granules to melt as the tea steeps.

Can I Make Pink Drink Ahead of Time

I would say if you want to make this drink ahead just make the acia tea and keep in the fridge. Then when ready to drink assemble it.

This drink takes just seconds to prepare and you will get that fresh flavor as you sip away.

Can I Substitute Coconut Milk in Pink Drink Recipe

If you can’t have coconut milk or are not a fan, you could easily swap with almond milk or even soy. I will say with the swap you of course won’t get the same taste as Starbucks.

But I am sure both almond or soy would pair well with this drink.
