The easiest (and most delicious) iced strawberry tea. This Starbucks copycat keto pink drink will quickly become a firm favourite low carb drink. Steep the tea and enjoy in less than 5 minutes.
What is Keto Pink Drink
It has been a long time between coffees or the pink drink at Starbucks for me. I finally found an easy to source tea that works so well to recreate a true classic.
Starbucks keto pink drink is a blend of berry hibiscus tea, ice, cream or coconut cream and strawberries. Freeze-dried strawberries and sugar free vanilla syrup are sometimes added.
This pink drink recipe is super simple. It has options for a dairy-free pink drink, or using a variety of keto milk. Try it and I am sure you will love it.
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
It’s easy: With only 3 ingredients and ready in less than 5 minutes.
Dairy-free or cream: The choice is yours make it either way and both are delicious!
Make ahead, freeze it, mix it in the cup, shake or make an easy strawberry tea frappe in your Thermomix. The recipe is versatile. You can just mix it or blend it the choice is yours.
Raspberry & Strawberry Tea – I use Red Seal tea. It tastes great in the pink drink. This is readily available in the supermarket in Australia but for our international users or those wanting to order online Tazo Passion Tea is incredibly good too!
Heavy Cream – Heavy or thickened cream is perfect as a little goes a long way. If you prefer to use something like nut milk, hemp mylk, or coconut milk go right ahead. Or of course, if you have a batch of our keto milk recipe made up then use that.
Ice Cubes – makes it all cold and tasty!
Strawberries – I don’t really use them but they are optional. If you would prefer to make a keto smoothie and add some berries to thicken it up, you can. Or you can slice them and add them for some tasty chunky bits in your pink drink.
How to Make Starbucks Pink Drink
Step 1. Steep 2 two bags in half a cup of boiling water. Pour over a cup full of ice.
Step 2. Add the cream or milk. Mix to combine.
Optional Pink Drink Smoothie. Place the steeped tea, ice, and milk of choice (and berries if using) into a blender or Thermomix and mix until smooth.
1. Make in bulk. You can make this ahead of time. Add the ice when ready to serve or freeze in ice cubes and blend in a smoothie.
2. Any of your favourite tea bags can be used. I loved both T2 White Peach and Pumping Pomegranate too.
Frequently Asked Questions
I find the pink drink sweet enough. However, if you want to add sweetener then add it to taste. Vanilla extract or sugar free vanilla syrup can also be added.
For a keto version ask for an passion iced tea with heavy cream and strawberries (or freeze dried strawberries). You can also get a pump of sugar free vanilla syrup if preferred.
Just the 1g net carbs for this very basic version. Add berries or more cream or milk and the carbs will go up.

Thank you for sharing all those secrets. I’m not following a Keto diet, but I love pink. So I made mine and added some monk fruit as a sweetener. I can’t wait to make it again.

This pink drink was really delicious! I made it as a test run and will definitely make it for Valentine’s Day just because of the color!
This has to be the easiest and most delicious keto iced tea I have ever had. It’s so refreshing and raspberry and strawberry are my favourite flavours. I think I might add some keto icecream to the next one. The best part was I had everything I needed on hand .
Oh wow! I didn’t think this would taste this good I was just after something different to try. This has to be one of my top “keto” drinks of all time. It was very easy to make and so tasty. I made mine just the easy way with stirring it. But then the kids wanted to try it too so we made some up in Thermomix. I also added 2 scoops of your ice cream and it was to die for! Thanks Megan you always have the best recipes that always taste great!
