Ingredients

  • 3 Acai Berry tea bags1
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ¾ cup white grape juice
  • ¼ cup sweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup2
  • ½ cup freeze-dried strawberries3
  • ice

Instructions

  • Steep the tea in the boiling water, make sure to remove the bags after 5 minutes4, and allow to cool.
  • Once cooled, combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake. I like to slightly crush the strawberries when I add them to the shaker because the powder helps add more strawberry flavor.
  • Pour the drink into a large glass and enjoy immediately.

Notes

  1. You could also use Starbucks VIA Berry Hibiscus Refresher mix instead of the tea. It's not the same as the Strawberry Acai but is a nice substitute.
  2. You can skip the simple syrup if you're trying to cut down on sugar.
  3. I like to slightly crush some of my freeze dried strawberries to give more color and flavor to the drink.
  4. If you steep tea too long than the flavor can change and the tea could taste bitter instead of fruity, so make sure you remove the bags at the 5 minute mark.
  5. One thing to note about this is the calories. Generally, a grande (16 oz.) pink drink has 140 calories in it, but that's because when you order it, you're getting half ice.
  6. This recipe actually makes 16 ounces of liquid drink and the ice is added on top of it.
  7. The nutritional information also doesn't include consuming the freeze-dried strawberries.
