By now you have probably heard about the Instagram famous Keto Pink Drink! No, it is not called the “pink drink” at Starbucks, but it is a low carb take on the popular Strawberry Acai Refreshers that Starbucks sells that are loaded with sugar.
The drink is fun to drink because, well, it’s pink!!! You can order this drink at Starbucks, but it comes out at nearly $4 for TEA! You can buy a BOX of this tea for that same price, I cringe at the Starbucks prices because it truly takes pennies to make some drinks!
Being the cheap gal that I am, I found a way to make this delicious drink at home for a much cheaper price!
If you live under a rock and haven’t heard about this pink drink, it is iced passion tea, with heavy cream and sugar-free vanilla syrup! However, just be aware that recently Starbucks reformulated their sugar-free vanilla syrup and it now contains Maltodextrin, yuck!
This hardly even counts as a recipe since it’s only 3 ingredients – but it truly is magical!
You can adjust the ingredients to your liking. Adjust the sweetener to your liking and the amount of heavy cream to fit your macros.
Start by gathering the many ingredients needed for this recipe, aka Tazo Passion Tea, heavy whipping cream, and sweetener of your choice! I prefer to use the Torani Sugar-Free Vanilla syrup as it is the closest to the Starbucks Sugar-Free Vanilla flavor.
Brew the passion tea as instructed – I actually placed 4 tea bags in my coffee pot and brewed some hot water so I had enough tea for a few pink drinks with minor effort.
Once the tea is brewed, I suggest placing it in the fridge and allowing it to cool. Once the tea is cool, add some ice to a glass and add some tea.
Up next add 2-3 TBSP of heavy cream into the tea – that gives it the milky pink amazing color that we ALLLLLL just love! (TOTALLY INSTAGRAM WORTHY)
Andddd the very last step is to sweeten to your liking, I am a sweet tea drinking gal so I have always liked my tea on the sweeter side.
Mix it all together and you will have your super simple, super cheap, Starbucks Copycat Pink Drink, yum!
Now grab your cell phones and selfie! Who doesn’t love this fabulous pink drink! Even better when you put it in a reusable Starbucks cup that you can pick up at Starbucks!
