One of the main ingredients in our peach green tea lemonade starbucks recipe is peach juice. The peach juice is what gives the drink all of it’s fruity flavor. You can find peach juice in many grocery stores. It is usually near Mexican foods or “international” cuisine ingredients. Look for a bright orange bottle of a carton with a perfect peach on the front.
If you can’t find peach juice, you can simply make it yourself! Two peaches will make about a cup of juice that you’ll need for the recipe. Here is what you need to do to make fresh peach juice:
- Peel and pit two peaches.
- Place the peaches in a blender and puree until very smooth.
- Pour the puree through a fine mesh sieve and discard the pulp.
- The fresh peach juice is ready to use!
You can also press fresh peaches through a juicer to make peach juice. Both the blender method or a juicer will work well! Homemade peach juice tastes fantastic in our iced peach green tea lemonade.

Here are a few alterations you may want to try. Each one is more delicious than the last!
- Use white tea in place of green tea. The bright taste of white tea is perfect with the peach juice.
- Add ½ cup of honey to the warm tea to make the drink sweeter. Honey adds a rich taste and sweetness to the peach green tea lemonade.
- Use half mango and half peach juice for a more tropical taste
- Use ½ cup lemon juice and ¼ cup granulated sugar in place of the premade lemonade. This will make the iced tea even more “homemade”!
- Replace the lemon juice with Monin Rancho Syrup. It is made with Sicilian lemons and has a sweet, bright flavor that is unbeatable. A trip to the "syrup ranch" never tasted so good!

Starbucks did discontinue their peach green tea lemonade a few years ago. They actually discontinued their peach syrup which was needed to make the recipe. However, they brought the drink back due to high demand and it seems to be a staple on the menu now!
Is the iced peach green tea lemonade good?
Starbucks peach green tea lemonade doesn’t always get rave reviews. While most people love the flavor, many comment that the drink is too watered down when you buy it at Starbucks. Our peach lemonade iced tea is packed with flavor. It is fruity, sweet and just the right amount of tangy. You will definitely love it.
What’s in a iced peach green tea lemonade from Starbucks?
Starbucks peach lemonade tea is made with peach flavored juice, iced green tea and lemonade. The mix is hand shaken with ice to cool it perfectly before serving.
Is the iced peach green tea lemonade sweetened?
The sugar in the lemonade and peach juice is the only thing that sweetens the drink. It does have a light sweet taste thanks to this. However, there is no added sugar to the drink mix.
Is Starbucks peach green tea lemonade healthy?
Starbucks peach green tea lemonade is not very healthy. The peach juice mix that the drink is made of is high in sugar. Our peach green tea lemonade recipe is much healthier since it is made with real, pure peach juice. Just another reason to make this recipe rather than buying a Starbucks drink mix!
