Total Time10 mins
Servings: 1 drink
- 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
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.
- 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.
- You can skip the simple syrup if you're trying to cut down on sugar.
- I like to slightly crush some of my freeze dried strawberries to give more color and flavor to the drink.
- 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.
- 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.
- This recipe actually makes 16 ounces of liquid drink and the ice is added on top of it.
- The nutritional information also doesn't include consuming the freeze-dried strawberries.
