The Starbucks summer menu always has new drinks that are filled with bright tropical flavors. These new recipes tend to become instant hits largely in part due to the popularity of previous drinks on the official menu, like the Starbucks Pink Drink, Strawberry Acai Refresher, Mango Dragonfruit Refresher and other Dragon Drink flavors. Now there’s a summer drink that combines the tropical flavors of pineapple and passionfruit! It’s the perfect fruity paradise beverage and the good news is you can create a delicious Copycat Starbucks Paradise Drink at home.

Copycat Starbucks Paradise Drink Recipe – Easy To Make At Home

While I will indulge in the Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate in the winter time, I prefer Starbucks drinks without the caffeine so it’s a no on the green tea and green coffee extract for me. As an occasional treat I love to drink the Vanilla Bean sans the Frappuccino. It’s so good and a delicious iced drink perfect for cooling off in the hot summer. The sweet treat is not the most healthy of drinks though so I’m pleasantly surprised there’s a new option in town with the tropical drink that is Starbucks Paradise.

Copycat Starbucks drinks seem to be everywhere these days. Probably because many of us don’t have the time to sit in line or the budget to afford it, at least not every day. The new Paradise Drink is the perfect combination of summer flavor with the main ingredients being pineapple, passionfruit and coconut.

Are prices at Starbucks going up?

From gas to clothing to grocery costs, everything is going up in 2022 due to inflation. Unfortunately Starbucks is getting hit with a price increase, too. If you haven’t noticed increases yet then you will very soon. Starbucks did have to raise prices during the pandemic and those amounts never decreased. Now the prices will be raised yet again due to the rising cost of inflation. Making this copycat Starbucks Paradise drink recipe even more valuable!

What is the Paradise Drink?

The Starbucks Paradise Drink, also called a Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher, is a cold drink that takes you on a delicious island escape. Starbucks baristas have created the perfect summer sip in the drink that combines passionfruit juice with pineapple pieces.

Are Starbucks copycat recipes easy to make at home?

The answer is yes! Your local Starbucks uses ingredients that can be found at your local supermarket. The main difference could be the blenders that are used. You’ll want to use a professional blender at home to truly achieve the Starbucks recipe. Another difference would be missing out on the cold foam, but you could easily substitute with whipped cream.

Is the Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage healthy and low in calories?

Copycat or not, a Grande Starbucks Paradise Drink is going to be around 140 calories. Want fewer calories? The smaller size (Starbucks Tall) is only 110 calories. Keep in mind that the calorie count and grams of sugar will increase depending on how much whipped cream is used. And there’s pineapple. I mean fruit is healthy! Ha!

Such a refreshing drink! I kind of want to try adding some mango juice to this recipe just to mix the delicious flavors. If anyone has done that already then please let me know!

Why is pineapple a great summer fruit?

Pineapple is perfect for summer due to it’s refreshing tropical flavor. It’s naturally low in calories so you won’t be filling up with extra. I’ve always associated pineapple with summer and that’s probably why.

Starbucks has so many other summery options that are fruity and fun. I might have to try out a Copycat Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus, because I’m all about the berry flavors in summer!

What is on the Starbucks Secret Menu?

Well, the answer to this could be quite lengthy because there are a lot of secret menu items when it comes to Starbucks. From Butterbeer Frappuccino, Churro Frappuccino, and Shamrock Shake Frappuccino to all sorts of different kinds of refreshers (typically non caffeinated) there are so many extra beverages to be found at Starbucks that are not on the menu. According to The Krazy Coupon Lady you can even ask your favorite barista for non caffeinated refresher drinks with names like Valentine’s Refresher, Pink Starburst Refresher, Nerds Refresher and Blooming Violet Refresher.
