If you’ve never had a Pink Drink from Starbucks, you have been missing out! According to the Starbucks website, Pink Drink is a light and refreshing beverage that features the sweet flavors of Strawberry Acai Refreshers® with accents of passion fruit and acai combined with coconut milk, and topped with a scoop of strawberries. While our “usual” is an iced caramel macchiato, sometimes you have to switch it up. Our girls have been huge fans of the pink drink since their first sip and since we can’t go out these days, we promised to come up with a Starbucks Pink Drink copycat recipe at home, to hold them over until we can go back. According to our teen, we nailed it (and that doesn’t happen often)! I should start by mentioning that although the Starbucks description mentions that it includes passion fruit, our copycat recipe doesn’t. I’m honestly not a huge fan of passion fruit. But the good news is, if you are a fan, you won’t miss it.

Before we get to our Starbucks Pink Drink copycat recipe, let me share a few tips about the ingredients. We’ve found that the best way to slice the strawberries is into semi-thin slices (at least for the 1/2 cup that will be placed in the cup. For the strawberries that you’ll be blending, it really doesn’t make a difference. I usually chop those in quarters just to make it easier to blend. You want to get the coconut milk that can be found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store. We use sweetened, vanilla-flavored coconut milk. Since they don’t sell the Strawberry Acai Refreshers in the store, we substituted it for the very berry hibiscus. If you can’t find the Very Berry Hibiscus Refreshers® you can probably use an açaí berry tea powder as an option as well. Just make sure it’s a powder so it will dissolve easily.

What’s in the Starbucks Pink Drink?

The Starbucks Pink Drink features Strawberry Acai Refreshers® with accents of passion fruit and acai combined with coconut milk, and topped with a scoop of strawberries.

Is the Pink Drink Healthy?

The pink drink is only 100 calories for a grande, which compared to other options, is actually pretty healthy compared to other options that you can get at Starbucks.

Is the Pink Drink the Same as The Pinkity Drinkity?

Yes, “Pinkity Drinkity” is the same as the Pink Drink. It was named Pinkity Drinkity by the famous YouTuber, James Charles.

Why Don’t the Copycat Recipes Taste Exactly Like the Pink Drink?

We tried a number of the copycat recipes before we created our own and while they all had a unique flavor, none were exactly the same. That’s because even though Starbuck’s sells a number of their VIA instant refreshers, they do not sell the Strawberry Açaí Refreshers® which is a main ingredient in their Pink Drink.

Our insta-friend Laura, @bump.tobaby, is known for loving her Starbucks Pink Drink with vanilla cold foam. She has an entire Instagram story highlight professing her love for it. You can add this as well by putting some non-fat milk and vanilla syrup into an immersion blender and blending until it’s nice and foamy. Make sure to leave some room at the top of your cup for it. If you try our version of the Starbucks Pink Drink copycat recipe, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Don’t forget to check out all of our family-friendly recipes! More of a coffee fan?

We are finally able to make one of our favorite Starbucks drinks at home. Starbucks Pink drink is a refreshing blend of ingredients including strawberries and coconut milk.

  1. So yummy
    My feedback :
    Use a little less coconut milk
    Use more strawberries

    My questions
    Where do I get a big enough cup to make this?
    Can I also use coconut water instead.

    Tips
    If you don’t have the very berry powder, you can soak hibiscus petals in a little bit of water instead, it works just as great
    If you want a sugar free option , you can use Lakanto monk fruit sweetener

    Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars

      Hi Kanya! I haven’t tried coconut water, but another reader said they prefer coconut water over milk. You can use any size cup you have – the cup I used is a Venti-sized reusable cup that I bought at Starbucks.

  2. If anyone is reading this, DONT use the coconut milk. Use coconut water because that is what Starbucks uses. Tastes so much closer to it. And you can get that special elixir on ebay. Is it maybe illegal? Possibly. But you can literally make it at home and save so much money. No need for the fresh strawberries even. Just those two things together make it magic and it tastes exactly like it. Good luck!

    2. If Starbucks uses coconut water how does the pink drink look milky? Do they add a splash of coconut milk?

  3. I am so happy I found this copy cat recipe. Now we can make this at home and not have to spend so much to get it at Starbucks. I will get some strawberries tomorrow and make this drink. Perfect to have poolside!

        I have the powder linked in the post for your convenience. You should also be able to find it at most grocery stores.

      2. They stopped selling them last summer due to supply shortages. They might bring them back when ingredients aren’t as scarce.

  4. I need to make this drink too. Thanks for sharing. I love to discover new recipes such as this

  5. Well, evidently I have been missing out, but now I want to make my own. Looks delicious!

  6. My kids are obsessed with Starbucks and pink drinks, and it would be awesome to be able to make these at home!

  7. We make this at home too, but with a sugar-free (actually, low sugar) version. I can’t think of having Starbuck’s 60 some carbs in my body for a drink!

  8. I have not had the opportunity of trying the Pink Drink of Starbucks. But looking at your recipe, I would love to go for the copycat! looks so refreshing.

  9. This looks so good. My daughters and I love the pink drink from Starbucks. I’ll have to give this a try.

  10. With the warmer weather this is going to be our to go drink this summer, thank you so much for the recipe

  11. Surprisingly, I got all the ingredients needed in my pantry, I’ll try this.

  12. I just realized that I haven’t been to Starbucks for so long. Thanks for the recipe. My wife loves anything with strawberries so she’ll love this pink drink for sure.

  13. Oh my, so I’m missing out🥴.. I was kinda hooked with my own blend of refreshments lately but I will definitely try this. Thanks!

  14. I’ve never had this drink from there before but it looks like something that my toddler would really enjoy! I’ll make one for her!

  15. I have to say, this is a delicious and amazing recipe, like I have to make this EVERYDAY because it’s so good to the point where I’m in love with it! But I would recommend add a little less water and it’ll taste so good.

  17. Hi! Does using the blender make it thicker than the Starbuck’s drink?
    I’m hoping to try it this week 🙂

      Hi Christy! The blender shouldn’t make it thicker, it just helps to create the strawberry juice!

  18. It’s on the Starbucks website listed under the Pink drink ingredients. It’s part of the Strawberry Acai Base.

  19. This Starbucks pink drink sounds so good! I never tried it before but I will have to make this soon with my daughter. I know she will love it too.

  22. Just made this. I realized we were out of strawberries after I started so had to sub freeze dried strawberries, and my coconut milk was unsweetened vanilla, so I added 1/2 tbsp more of sugar. I thought it was pretty close! My fifteen year old always orders the pink drink at Starbucks and he thought it was really good (and a close match). Next time I might try 1/2 grape juice 1/2 water and omit the sugar (Starbuck’s site says the pink drink ingredients include white grape juice). Thanks for posting this!

      Thanks for your feedback! Where did you see white grape juice? On their site it says “Starbucks Pink Drink is a light and refreshing beverage that features the sweet flavors of Strawberry Acai Refreshers® with accents of passion fruit and acai combined with Coconutmilk, and topped with a scoop of strawberries.”

      1. It says it in the ingredients list on their açai concentrate. You can actually buy them on eBay. I had them show it to me once because I wanted to know exactly what they put in it. But the ingredients are listed on that Acai carton 🙂

  23. Awesome! Now I can make this at home every time I crave for it and not have to drive to Starbucks! Strawberries always remind me of my mom (she passed away last year), so I will make this drink and lift a glass up to her. I am sure she will be smiling down from heaven.

  24. So good!! I used frozen strawberries instead of fresh because that’s all I had, and I used unsweetened coconut milk and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I’m going to try it again but add the passion fruit extract 🙂

  25. Do you think this recipe is good? I really want to recreate this but all the recipes I found say “it tastes nothing like the pink drink” and it’s really throwing me off.

      Hi Ariana,
      I can only suggest that you try it and see. I’ve heard more positives than negatives on this particular recipe and my oldest daughter, who drinks the Pink Drink on a regular basis, helped me with this one. I can tell you that no copycat recipe will taste exactly the same because Starbucks doesn’t sell the Strawberry Refresher powder needed to make it. Also, as I mention in the post, I’ve left out passion fruit as it’s not something I personally love. If you do try it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

  26. Help! I can’t find sweetened coconut milk in the dairy department. I ended up getting simple truth coconut milk. Can I turn this into vanilla sweetened coconut milk for the Pink Drink?

      Hi Debra! I haven’t personally tried Simple Truth coconut milk so I can’t say for certain if it will work. I wish I could help.

      Thank you for your feedback, D! Unfortunately, since Starbucks doesn’t sell the Strawberry Açaí Refreshers® in retail stores, we had to go with the next best option. We are continuing to try to find a good substitute.

  27. Tried it. Unfortunately, it does not taste anything like the Starbucks Pink Drink. It was actually pretty off putting. I was convinced to give this recipe a try due to the high ratings; what I failed to truly take note of was that the majority of the 5 star ratings are from people stating they can’t wait to try the recipe in the future since they enjoy the actual drink from Starbucks, not from folks who tried it first, then rated afterwards. I’ll have to stick to Starbucks.

      I’m so sorry that you didn’t like it, Diana. This isn’t exact, as we mentioned because Starbucks version has passion fruit, which we leave out because we don’t like the taste. We appreciate the honest feedback and will continue working on finding a substitute that may work for you!

  28. OMG this is my absolute favorite drink at Starbucks!! I just pinned and I’m soooo making it this weekend!!! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Oh, how I miss my visits to Starbucks. This will become a regular drink in my household now. Yum!

  30. I love being able to make one of my favorite Starbucks drinks right at home with this pink drink. The kids love it too!

  31. I bought everything for this recipe and it taste nothing like the pink drink. I followed the recipe exactly. 🙁 was so hoping for the best.

      I’m so sorry to hear that Brittney! Was there something specific that you think tasted off? Would love to hear your thoughts. Everyone that I know that tried it loved it.

  32. We are going to try this this weekend. My daughter loves the pink drink and we are missing starbucks.

  33. The pink drink really sparks up my mood and I’m instantly happy just to look at it. Will love to try this out as strawberry and pink are my favorites.

  34. I love all your piccys by the way. what a great idea to re-create your fav drinks especially when you cant go out and buy them x

  35. Can´t believe I´ve never had this Pink Drink from Starbucks, looks delicious! Need to try it at home!

  36. Gosh! I feel like I’ve missed out. I have never had either a pink drink nor a refresher. Thanks for this easy to use recipe!! strawberries sound so good right now.

  37. Oh yes this is perfect! I don’t usually get a lot of starbucks but this is one of my favs when I do!

  38. I’ve never had one of these believe it or not! It looks so good though and refreshing…a perfect afternoon pick me up!

  39. What a refreshing and pretty drink! I will have to pick up those packets of refreshers next time I’m at the store.

  40. I’ve never had the Pink Drink from Starbucks, but I am digging your copycat recipe and I love strawberries! Everyone looks very pleased wit this drink in this post lol, love it!

  41. Who doesn’t love this pink drink? I actually love it, it’s delicious, it’s easy to make and refreshing!

  42. I have never actually had anything from Starbucks before. I’ve tried some they sell in stores, but never actually been there. This was one drink I’d love to try from them sometime though. I’m going to definitely try this recipe. It looks delicious.

  43. I love the Starbucks Pink Drink and have found the Starburst Singles drink mix in pink is almost a dead ringer. This sounds really good and looks pretty too.

  44. What a fun recipe! My kids love copycat Starbucks recipes and have been missing Starbucks while stuck at home.

  45. I love this!! What a money saver. My husband is going to love it, too, when I make some tonight! 🙂

  46. Oh this recipe looks super tasty and very refreshing. I know that my daughter would love to have a go at making these, she has gone a little mad for smoothies and juices at the moment.

  47. Thank you so much for this recipe as I have everything needed to make it and my oldest daughter would love this. I am pinning this one for sure. Thank you!

    1. Your pink drink looks so delicious. I like vanilla flavored coconut milk and especially strawberries. Yum!
