The Keto Pink Drink has been a popular drink over the past two summers, and I know why it tastes delicious!
Learn how we created the Copycat Starbucks Keto Strawberry Acai Pink Drink recipe for a fraction of what it costs from the famous coffee shop.
Summer Keto Pink Drink Low On Carbs- Big Flavours
When Mrs. CBB recently visited Starbucks and tried their popular pink drink, the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher but keto-style.
Honestly, she had no idea what she was about to order, and the barista was very helpful.
She can count the number of times she’s visited Starbucks in her lifetime on one hand.
Together they created a sugar-free Passion-Fruit Strawberry Pink Drink made with coconut milk.
Now that the warm weather is here, we celebrated by creating a keto version of the expensive grande $6.20 Starbucks Pink Drink.
This will be considerable savings to the Starbucks Pink Drink lover and anyone who wants to control the amount of sugar and carbs 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?

The keto pink drink we’ve created is a bit different from what you can order at Starbucks but is still amazing, and I don’t think anyone will know it’s sugar-free.
Our custom Keto Pink Drink starts with Stash Acai berry tea and strawberry tea bags mixed with hot water.
I know what you’re thinking but don’t worry, our Strawberry Pink Drink has different ingredients but tastes delicious.
Remember that we are creating our masterpiece compared to what the barista made Mrs. CBB.
You’ll want to let the tea cool down before you begin this recipe, so it’s wise to make it ahead.
This drink is not a Frappucino nor thick because it’s meant to be a refresher, as described by Starbucks.
Finding The Pink Drink Ingredients
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 strawberry tea or both to create the Strawberry Acai Tea flavour.
Some shops sell Acai flavoured powder, although they may or may not be sugar-free, so watch out for that.
If you can’t find the Strawberry Acai berry herbal tea mix in Canada, I’ve got you covered.
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 famous Keto Pink Drink.
You can also add green tea as it is in the original recipe, although I chose not to.
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 in a blender.
Blend until frothy.
In a frosty mug, add ice cubes, then slather whipped cream around the inside.
Pour the cold beverage over the ice, and add more sliced strawberries and a big straw.
There’s your summer PINK DRINK in a jiffy!
No Sugar, No Gluten, Low in Carbs, Keto friendly, and high on fresh fruit flavours!
