Okay, so I’m definitely a little late to the game on this one…
but I finally tried the Pink Drink at Starbucks a few weeks ago. I am in love! It’s pretty, obviously, but it’s also refreshing and has just enough strawberry flavor. Plus, the coconut milk gives it a creaminess without making it heavy.
As much as I enjoy the Pink Drink, I’m not ready to give Starbucks all my money, and even pregnancy cravings aren’t enough to justify multiple trips a week to Starbucks. So, I decided to figure out how to make my own. The kids loved helping out with taste-testing, and after several batches, I think I’ve gotten pretty close to the real thing. I might actually like this version better, as there’s just 3 ingredients in this Pink Drink recipe, compared to the original. Plus, it couldn’t be simpler to make.
- 1/3 cup freeze-dried strawberries
- 1.5 tsp freeze-dried strawberries for garnish
- 6 ounces white grape juice
- 4 ounces coconut milk
Fill a large glass halfway with ice.
Crumble 1.5 tsp of freeze-dried strawberries over the ice, breaking the strawberries into small pieces.
Blend 1/3 cup of the strawberries and white grape juice in a blender until combined.
Pour the white grape juice / strawberry mixture into the glass.
Top with coconut milk and stir.
