Why Is the Starbucks Dragon Drink So Good? 

These days, everyone seems to have some sort of Starbucks addiction. But if you ever crave something other than your favorite coffee drink, try one of the chain’s fruit-based refreshers, like the Dragon Fruit Drink. This sweet, tart, and creamy creation with a bright pink color is a unique way to cool off. 

So, what is the Starbucks Dragon Drink anyway? It’s a popular iced drink with a blend of mango juice, powdered dragon fruit, white grape juice, and creamy coconut milk with bits of dried dragon fruit. One sip of the Dragon Fruit Drink from Starbucks with its tropical flavor is all it takes to transport you to the islands.

This deliciously creamy coconut milk beverage is dairy-free.

Why You Should Try This Recipe 

Many people consider dragon fruit a superfood because it’s high in nutrients and may help to boost the immune system. Regardless of any reported health benefits, this juice just tastes amazing.

If you have tried the mango dragon fruit refresher drink at Starbucks and like it, don’t be put off by the cost of some of the ingredients. You will definitely save money in the long run compared to how much you spend at the cafe.

And if you are wondering, does Starbucks Dragon Drink have caffeine? The answer is yes! The original version you get at Starbucks contains green coffee and has some caffeine, but this copycat Starbucks Dragon Drink doesn’t have any green coffee in it, so it’s caffeine-free!

Ingredient Notes

Choose 100 percent fruit juice for this recipe. Don’t use any juice with added sugar because the dragon fruit is pretty sweet on its own. 

Pink dragon fruit powder and dried dragon fruit pieces are two ingredients that may take a little effort to find. But, like almost anything else, you can find them online. Check out the Where to Find the Ingredients section below to find out more.

How to Make the Dragon Drink Starbucks Style

To prepare this Dragon Drink Starbucks copycat recipe:

Alternatively, you can combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker or mason jar and shake them until well blended.

Where to Find the Ingredients For Starbucks Dragon Drink Recipe

You’re lucky if your local grocery store stocks freeze-dried dragon fruit powder or freeze-dried dragon fruit pieces. Most people need to go online to buy the ingredients for this recipe.

Amazon has several brands of both. Look for a brand that is 100 percent pure dragon fruit and is for cooking and not purely as a health supplement. Some brands of dried dragon fruit can be expensive, but a few are less expensive and still taste good.

What to Serve It With?

A straw is all you need to enjoy your Starbucks mango dragonfruit refresher but feel free to get a little more creative. Try topping the drink with whipped cream or vanilla cold foam. Don’t want or can’t find dried dragon fruit? Leave it out, or use dried mango or dried pineapple chunks instead. 

If you need a bit of a jolt to get going, add a half-teaspoon of green coffee extract for some caffeine. You’ll probably be able to find green coffee extract in the same place you buy the pink dragon fruit powder.
