Starbucks Keto Pink Drink (Copycat)

There are very few drinks in the world that bring me as much joy as the Pink drink on the Starbucks menu. But as most of you know, I’m a bit frugal and can’t fathom spending that much money consistently on a drink.

Not only that, but that drink is loaded down with sugar and other ingredients that I just can’t allow myself to consume. I’ve worked hard on eating healthy and keeping off the weight and I’ll be a rat’s uncle if I’m going to put back on the pounds because of a drink. If I was going to fall off the wagon and gain weight, I’d probably give in to my cravings and splurge this Instant Pot Red Velvet Bundt Cake instead! 

If you’re ready to make this simple Starbucks Copycat drink recipe at home, let’s get started with this keto-friendly drink.

How to Make Starbucks Keto Pink Drink (Copycat)

To make the Tea

Boil water in a saucepan.

Place tea bag in teapot. Next, pour the boiling water on top of the teabag. 

Let tea steep for 5 minutes.

Remove the teabag.

Add the Pyure, stir making sure that it dissolves. Tip:  Erythritol based sweetener does not typically dissolve in cold liquid. It is very important that it is added now to ensure that it dissolves properly.

Add  4 cups of ice-cold water.

8 cups of Iced Passion Tea is ready. 

Note: I only needed to make 4 cups this time. You can double the recipe easily though and keep the prepared tea in your fridge to make the Pink drink the next day.

To make the Pink Drink

In a blender, add the chopped strawberries, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. 

Add 4 cups (32 oz.) of the prepared passion tea.

Blend it on high till it is frothy and creamy.

Fill 2 large galls or mason jars with ice and chopped strawberries.

Pour the blended pink drink into both cups.

Add a straw and a couple of chopped strawberries to garnish.

Serve immediately.

You can  keep this dairy-free by using coconut cream instead of heavy cream. Also, the drink will separate if kept out for long. Just stir it with your straw and it will blend back into the creamy pink drink consistency.

This Starbucks Keto Pink Drink (copycat) isn’t hard to make, in fact, it can probably be done before driving out to your local Starbucks and you can stay in your pajamas! WIN! This is the perfect recipe to send your taste buds into a fantastic frenzy! If you’re in a sharing mood, it’s also great for small get-togethers with family and friends. They’ll never know it wasn’t Starbucks unless you tell them!

What is the pink drink actually called?

Believe it or not, this drink actually does have a name! It’s known in the world as the “pink drink” but it’s called Strawberry Acai Refresher! When I do go to my Starbucks though, I just order a keto pink drink. They know! 

What does Starbucks ‘ pink drink taste like?

People love this drink because they say that it actually tastes like a Starburst. And not just any Starbust, but the one everyone fights over – the pink ones!

Is a pink drink healthy?

This one is! I’ve created and tweaked this drink to be healthy and keto-friendly. The fresh strawberries really take this flavor over the top! 

And if you’re able to plant your own garden and use fresh strawberries – wow. The flavor will be totally unbelievable of this pink drink!

Can you use other fruit in this drink recipe?

You can. I love fresh strawberries, but you can change up this recipe easily by using other fruit instead. Blackberries would be awesome as would blueberries. 

Make certain that you use fruit that isn’t going to affect your keto lifestyle. Definitely do your research before really changing up anything on your end! 

Is this drink meant to be hot or cold? 

This is a cold drink! The more ice, the better. I love to start off my day with this copycat drink from Starbucks but it’s delicious in the middle of the day or at the end of the day, too. 

Fun Ways To Share This Copycat Beverage

You can easily change up this recipe any way that you want, but just keep in mind the way that I’ve made it is what makes it keto-friendly and also makes it most like what you’d get at an actual coffee shop. 

I’ve actually made this tasty beverage for family and friends and they refuse to believe me when I tell them that it’s keto! For some reason, people tend to think that eating or drinking keto means that there isn’t any flavor or taste. 

But you know me. I’m always happy to educate them! 

Living a keto lifestyle has afforded me the freedom to make healthy choices that help me find a balance between eating good foods while also trying out new family recipes as well. 

If you’re ready to branch out and try a new drink that you’ll be able to easily fall in love with, I highly recommend giving this Starbucks Keto Pink Drink (Copycat) a try!
