YOUR GO-TO SUMMER PINK DRINK LOW ON THE CARBS AND SUGAR-FREE

 

When Mrs. CBB made her way to Starbucks on the way home from a recent trip she decided to try their popular pink drink known as the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher but keto style. In all honesty she had no idea what she was about to order but the barista was very helpful and together they created a sugar-free Passion-Fruit Strawberry Pink Drink made with coconut milk.

Now that the warm weather is officially here we thought no better way to celebrate than to make the expensive grande $6.20 Starbucks Pink Drink at home. This will obviously be a huge savings to the Starbucks Pink Drink lover and for anyone who wants to control the amount of sugar and carbs they are getting in their diet.

Before we started our keto pink drink we put our large fancy glasses in the freezer to frost them up. Nothing better than a cold, frosty drink in a frosty mug. Right?

Ingredients for Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher (these are the original ingredients)

Ice, Strawberry Acai Base [Water, Sugar, White Grape Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Natural Green Coffee Flavor, Fruit And Vegetable Juice, Rebaudioside-a], Water, Freeze-dried Strawberries.

Our custom Keto Pink Drink starts with Stash Acai berry tea and strawberry tea bags mixed together with hot water.

I know what you’re thinking but don’t worry our Strawberry Pink Drink has different ingredients but tastes delicious. Keep in mind we are creating our masterpiece in comparison to what the barista made Mrs. CBB.

What you want to do is let the tea cool down and remove the tea bags then discard them.This is not a Frappucino or thick by any means because it’s meant to be a refresher drink which is what you will find Starbucks calls them.

Stash Acai Berry Tea $3.99 Well.ca or you can find it at the Bulk Barn and on Amazon in the 100 count Stash Tea Acai Berry Herbal Tea Bags, 100-Count Box. If you don’t care for the Acai Berry herbal tea you can use a strawberry tea or both to create the Strawberry Acai Tea flavour. There are also shops that sell Acai flavoured powder although they may or may not be sugar-free so watch out for that.

In the event you can’t find the Strawberry Acai berry herbal tea mix in Canada I’ve got you covered. Really any Strawberry Acai tea or iced tea packets or tea bags will work. All you’re looking for is the colour and the flavour to make this deliciously popular Keto Pink Drink. You can also go ahead and add some green tea as well as it is in the original recipe. We don’t fancy it that much but you may.

In a blender add your cold Strawberry Acai tea (or whatever pink you choose), coconut milk, almond milk, Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla Flavour Syrup, 750ml and strawberries. Blend it up until frothy. In your frosty mug add a few cubes of ice then slather whipped cream around the inside of the mug. Pour your pink drink over top the ice, add a few more slices of strawberry and a big straw and enjoy!

There’s your summer PINK DRINK in a jiffy!

No Sugar, No Gluten, Low in Carbs and high on fresh flavours!

  1. FYI the Starbucks coconut milk is actually coconut beverage and contains sugar. Another reason why doing any sugar low plan ((keto paleo etc) you have to vigilant. Sugar is everywhere. So I’m looking forward to trying this at home version. To be honest I find these choices hardest when entertaining or relaxing at home. So this may be a helpful drink for that.
