It’s no secret that Starbucks has some amazing drinks. They are one of the leaders when it comes to creating tasty, non-alcoholic beverages. There is always some new delicious drink to try every time you go to Starbucks.
However, going to Starbucks all the time can get pretty pricey. Sure, those drinks are great and it is so easy to place your order then have someone just hand you a beautiful drink. But is it really worth the cost?
The Cost of Starbucks Secret Drink
We know we are not alone in our Starbucks drink obsession. You can never get enough of that refreshing Starbucks Pink Drink! But the Starbucks drink habit is not a cheap one. How much is a venti pink drink exactly? It runs about $5 per drink.
Imagine buying a venti pink drink everyday for a whole year. You would definitely have a smile on your face after sipping that refreshing pink juice every day! But you would have spent about $1825. On just drinks! Let’s hope you also didn’t buy a $3 scone to go with that pink drink…

The pink drink may be one of Starbucks most famous secret drinks. It’s really not so secret anymore! You can make a tasty pink drink in your own kitchen that is almost identical to the Starbucks version.
Our recipe uses fresh brewed acai berry tea, white grape juice, and coconut milk as the liquid base for the recipe. Fresh sliced strawberries make the drink that signature pink color and add so much natural sweetness. We add a touch of agave nectar to make the drink just a bit sweeter- more Starbucks-like.
You can make a giant pitcher of pink drink at the beginning of the week and enjoy it all week long. The fresh berries make a world of difference in this refreshing beverage. We must say, we kind of like our pink drink even better than Starbucks...
If you love Starbuck’s refreshing acai lemonade refresher then you absolutely have to try our recipe. It is just as refreshing and even more flavorful thanks to the fresh ingredients. Fresh chopped strawberries make a world of difference in the flavor of this drink. One sip and you are going to never want that Starbuck’s version ever again!
Do refreshers have caffeine? Many people wonder about this Starbuck’s question and the answer is yes. Most refreshers at Starbucks are lightly caffeinated with green coffee extract. But sometimes you don’t want caffeine. What if you want a refresher but want to sip and relax all afternoon? What if you don’t want that jolt of energy?
Our strawberry acai lemonade refresher is caffeine free. So, not only does it taste amazing, it is also perfect for any time of day. You can even have a big glass to cool you down before bedtime!
You will be so happy that you spent the 5 minutes to make this tasty lemonade. We guarantee it!
3. Guava Passion Fruit Secret Drink
Guava passion fruit drink may be one of the newer drinks on the Starbucks secret menu but it is definitely one of our favorites. The bright flavors of fresh pineapple and ginger are so delicious with the tropical tastes of guava and passion fruit.
You don’t need to travel to a tropical island or even to your local Starbucks to enjoy the vibrant flavors of this drink. You can make it right in your own kitchen!
All you need is pineapple juice, guava juice, passionfruit juice, ginger, honey and coconut milk. Most grocery stores will have all the ingredients you need! Then, 5 minutes in the kitchen and you’ll be sipping on a classy, custom made drink.
4. Violet Secret Drink
Starbucks secret violet drink may be very pretty but it is made with something called “berry refresher base”. We want real ingredients in our drinks, not “base”!
Our violet drink recipe is made using brewed hibiscus tea, fresh blackberries, blueberries and canned coconut milk. The canned coconut milk gives the drink a natural sweetness and tropical flavor. It also adds a nice creamy texture that is filling and refreshing.
5. Blue Mermaid Smoothie
Starbuck’s joined the mermaid trend when then created the secret mermaid Frappuccino. The pretty purple frap is made using blackberries and then swirled with a white mocha sauce. Sure, the drink is pretty but our mermaid smoothie is even better.
Our blue mermaid smoothie has a gorgeous blue color thanks to the blue spirulina powder. Blue spirulina is made from natural, super healthy algae. Not only is it good for you, but it is the color of tropical oceans. Way prettier than Starbucks mermaid smoothie for sure.
Pineapple juice, dragon fruit and blueberries add a nice fruity taste to our smoothie. Add a handful of blackberries if you want the drink to taste even more like the Starbucks version.
Now that you have 5 amazing recipes on hand, there really is no reason to go to Starbucks anymore. Save you time and money and make even better drinks right at home!
