Enjoy fun and tasty colored drinks? Try this easy Starbucks inspired Pink Drink recipe!
I don’t know what it is about pretty colored drinks, but if my daughter sees it, she’ll get it. So when Starbucks came out with their pink drink, it quickly became one of her favorite drinks. However, we don’t go to Starbucks often enough to satisfy her cravings and she searched for a way to make her favorite Starbucks pink drink at home.Make the popular Starbucks Pink Drink at home using 3 main ingredients + simple syrup.
The first recipe we tried used a mixed berry acai tea with coconut milk, which was okay; however, it needed a lot of sugar and was a bit tedious to make. This recipe is based on a video found on Tik Tok (media app for sharing short videos) that showed the ingredients, but didn’t share any measurements. So, we played around with the measurements and we think this pink drink recipe comes pretty darn close.
Note: Do not use canned coconut milk as it does not taste the same. Use the carton Silk Original coconut milk found in the refrigerated section. Unsweetened coconut milk can be used, but the drink will need more simple syrup.
Enjoy drinking this during the spring/summer season!

In a small pitcher, add the coconut milk, juice, and simple syrup. Mix together. Taste and add more simply syrup if needed. Add ice and sliced strawberries to cups and pour pink drink mix over ice/strawberries. Serve.
