What is a Starbucks keto pink drink
To start explaining this drink, let’s talk about the keto diet real quick. Like, basic keto information. on the keto diet you try to limit your carb intake by avoiding certain starchy foods and sugars. When you do this you put your body into what is called ketosis which in turn burns off stored fat.
Sugar is a sneaky carb and is limited or avoided while on the diet. But don’t worry! You can still have your Starbucks while on the plan. This copycat Starbucks keto drink is low carb, low sugar and totally delicious. In fact this keto Starbucks drink has less than 4 net carbs.
What’s in a keto friendly pink drink
Although this may seem like a complicated Starbucks copycat drink, it’s really simple to make at home. Once you have all the ingredients you can make this copycat keto drink at home over and over again. You should be able to find the ingredients at your local grocery store. I picked up a few of mine at Target and my grocery store. You will need:
- Passion fruit tea
- Stevia or monk fruit
- Sugar free vanilla syrup
- Heavy whipping cream
Tazo sells a passion tea that is perfect for this keto drink recipe and Starbucks even uses the Tazo brand in their stores. There is a regular herbal tea kind and an iced tea version. The iced tea version is perfect for making a big batch and the herbal tea bags are best for making a single serving. Grab whichever you prefer.
They also sell a passion fruit Tazo tea in a K-cup for all you Keuring owners.
In order for this drink to be keto you need to use a sweetener that is low in carbohydrates. Natural stevia and monk fruit are two great options that will sweeten the tea and keep the drink low in carbs. I enjoy the Lakanto monk fruit sweetener but use whatever you like.
Next you will need a sugar free vanilla syrup for this recipe. I love love love the Torani syrups. They have a sugar free version of most of their syrups and they taste great. I recommend using Torani sugar free vanilla syrup or trying to a homemade sugar free vanilla.
Last, grab some heavy whipping cream from the dairy section of your grocery store.
How to make a keto Starbucks drink at home
There are two ways to make this copycat drink – a single serving or as a concentrate that makes multiple servings. You will need the same ingredients, the amounts and how you store it changes a bit.
To start, you will need to brew your passion tea. While it is steeping or is still warm, mix in your sweetener. Stevia or monk fruit are suggested to keep this drink keto friendly. Stir to combine the sweetener in the warm tea. It should dissolve.
Allow the tea to cool. If you are making a concentrate, store the passion tea in your fridge until you are ready to make a drink. If you are making a single serve keto pink drink you will add your sugar free vanilla syrup, heavy cream and ice. Stir to combine everything.
There ya go. A super easy keto Starbucks pink drink recipe that you can make at home. Once you see how easy it is to make at home, you may never order one at the store again.
