Pink Dragonfruit Refresher

Without a doubt, drinking a cold glass of dragonfruit refresher in this heat feels like the greatest luxury on earth. It’s clearly the prettiest drink ever. Furthermore, this drink is naturally-sweetened and the lemonade green tea gives the perfect amount of pucker.

Can you believe this gorgeous pink dragonfruit refresher only requires 4-ingredients? Well, it does. I am so overjoyed! I bet you’re wondering what’s all in there? More good news, you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.

Here are the Pink Dragonfruit Refresher Ingredients You Will Need:

Pink dragonfruit — feel free to use fresh or frozen fruit. If you can’t find pink dragonfruit, you can also use the white-flesh varieties, also known as Pitaya Blanca as well.

Maple syrup — this ingredient is completely flexible. You can use honey, agave nectar, or brown rice syrup. All would work well in this recipe.

Lemons — gives a bright and tangy flavor component.

A green tea bag — adds all of the benefits of green tea, and adds the perfect light floral taste we all love.

A simple recipe, right?

Furthermore, after squeezing the lemons, strain the juice to get rid of the pulp. However, if you admire the consistency of pulp, leave it in.

Finally, assemble the drink for a nice presentation. First, put the dragon fruit on the bottom. Next, add ice all the way to the rim of the glass. Then, add the lemonade green tea. Finally, top the glass with dragon fruit pieces. Because the color is so saturated, it will all eventually become one hot pink color. Yes, you can make this Starbucks dragonfruit drink in your kitchen.
