Quick and Easy at Home Starbuck’s Pink Drink

We live in a relatively  small city, compared to  where I grew up, and with that being said I grew up with Dunkin Donuts trying  Starbucks was definitely out of my comfort zone but boy after I tried their famous secret menu drink the Pink Drink I am so glad I did. Prior to trying the Pink Drink I had only been to Starbucks 4 other times and had only tried their Vanilla Bean Frappe. I began seeing this “pink drink” all over my Facebook newsfeed over and over everyday all day long, to the point where the Pink Drink was taking over all the political post. While in Target (ours has a Starbucks inside…Does yours?) I decide to give it a try. At first I stumbled all over trying to order it…I thought you just order it by the name “I will take a large Pink Drink, please” 1st off LARGE is not a size at Starbucks…Short, Tall, Grande, Venti, and Trenta  2ndly I needed to order the drink by asking for a Strawberry Acai Refresher with Coconut Milk instead water.

Sharing is the hardest part. The tie for the hardest part when you are left with an empty cup is the sad feeling when you have an EMPTY CUP ;)! Now you can make your own at home! It is so tasty and to me taste even better. I have been using fresh strawberries and then eating them after the drink is gone. I found all the ingredients at Walmart.

Pink Drink 1

 1. Use a 1/2 pack of the Lipton Strawberry Acai Tea (I found it in the aisle as the coffee & tea is in. You can order it on Amazon by clicking on Lipton above) 

2. Soy Delicious Coconut Milk Unsweetened (I found ours in the juice aisle where the dry and shelf milk is located) I like to put mine in the fridge before making my drinks will need 1/2 Cup

3. Ice Cold Water 1/2 Cup

4. Ice 1 Cup

5. Fresh Strawberries Slices 1/2 Cup

Whip Cream

In your tall cup add the Lipton tea mix and the water, stir until completely dissolved, then add the Coconut milk, ice and strawberries and stir. My kids like to top theirs off with whip cream! Any ENJOY!!!

In less than five minutes, $6  and about 45 calories each I was able to make 5 Pink Drinks at home. Since making them at home I’ve only gotten 2 at a Starbucks and that was while in a different city. You can play around with how much or little you want of the water and Coconut milk. You can buy freeze-dried strawberries and add them vs fresh strawberries.

Come back and let me know how you enjoy yours when you made it and did you use fresh or freeze-dried strawberries? Did you top yours with whip cream? My girls’ even like to add pink sprinkles on top of their whip cream!

  1. Yum sounds delicious. I’ll be honest I had no idea Starbucks had a pink drink – I never go there ever, so I will have to give it a try!

  2. We love Lipton Ice tea and strawberries so this would be a great drink to make for sure for us. I have never try the Starbucks Pink drink but it would be interesting to see if they were similar for myself. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  4. I haven’t had a chance to try this drink yet. Starbucks is generally a treat for me since its expensive. Plus, id rather buy the ingredients and make it to my liking.
