A healthier twist on the Starbucks Pink Drink…at home!
by Erica Johnson
Who isn’t in love with the new Starbucks Pink Drink? The gals here at the iGoPink offices surely are…so I decided to take on the challenge to find a way to make this at home for less money and with as healthy and organic of products as possible. The result? COMPLETE success (at least in my books!)
Since I’m due with our first baby in 3 weeks, caffeine is still being kept at a minimum in my world. So I went to my tried and true base of bai Coconut Flavored water with the raspberry hint of flavoring too. Then for the rest of the ingredients I used all natural items from our grocery store to make it pretty darn close to what Starbucks has to offer…try it for yourself. Would love to hear any recipe changes or ideas!
Starbucks Pink Drink at Home
1 cup of bai Coconut-Raspberry flavored water (note there is some caffeine in this, just lower than brewed tea—but if you want the extra boost replace with 1 cup of brewed Green Raspberry Tea)
1/3 cup of Almond-Coconut Unsweetened Milk
4-6 drops of All-Natural Lemon Juice
1 ½ tsp of organic honey
½ cup of fresh sliced strawberries mashed with a fork
Blend the liquids together then add the honey to dissolve into liquid. Lastly add the strawberries and really mix thoroughly. Finish by pouring over crushed ice and add a strawberry for garnish. And voila…a sweet pink treat that’s healthy, delish and just like your local coffee stop!
