What Is in a Starbucks Pink Drink?

When you order a pink drink from Starbucks, you get a slightly different recipe than the one found in this easy drink. The Starbucks version is made with a strawberry acai base, coconut milk and Tazo tea. 

Although the original recipe features tea, there’s no reason you have to include it in your homemade version! Skipping the tea makes this homemade pink drink a caffeine-free option that’s perfect for kids and adults.

Starbucks Pink Drink Recipe Ideas

Making your own pink drink at home is a great way to save money. But it’s also perfect for creating your customized beverages! Try these recipe ideas to create your version of a pink drink that suits your flavor preferences.

  • Add some tea. Starbucks uses Tazo tea in all of their tea-based drinks, which is perfect because you can purchase that same brand at your local grocery store! Mix in traditional green tea or unique flavors like Passion tea, mint, Vanilla Bean Macaron, or Lemon Strawberry.
  • Substitute plain cranberry juice or white grape juice. White cran-strawberry juice is a great way to add tons of flavor to your drink without needing multiple ingredients. But that particular flavor can be challenging to find. If you’re having trouble finding that flavor at your grocery store, you can replace it with plain cranberry or white grape juice.
  • Try it with coconut water. Using coconut water instead of coconut milk is a simple way to lighten up your homemade pink drink. You’ll be able to add the coconut flavor to your drink with fewer calories.
  • Make it carbonated. Add some fizz to your pink drink with the help of sparkling water. Mix in a small amount of sparkling water along with the coconut milk to give your drink a little bit of carbonation.
  • Try a different type of milk. Coconut milk adds a delicious flavor and creaminess to your pink drink. But any type of milk will work well when making your own version at home. You can use almond milk to keep it dairy-free or use traditional dairy milk instead of coconut milk.

How Do I Store This Pink Drink Recipe?

This delicious pink drink tastes best when it’s fresh. But if you have extra, it should be stored in the refrigerator. Strain the leftover ice from the drink to keep it from getting watered down, then place the drink in the fridge. It will stay good for up to one day when chilled. The longer the drink sits in the refrigerator, the more likely it will separate.

The ingredients in this drink do not freeze well, so storing your prepared pink drink in the freezer is not recommended.

Can I Make a Pitcher of Pink Drink?

Why keep this refreshing drink to yourself when you can share it with your friends? This pink drink recipe can easily be prepared for a crowd by increasing the ingredient amounts. If you want to prepare a pitcher of pink drink with around four servings, you’ll need:

Start by smashing around eight strawberries in the bottom of your pitcher. Then, add the remaining ingredients. Stir to mix, and pour the pink drink over ice to make multiple servings at once.
