Copycat Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresher

This Copycat Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresher is full of all the delicious tropical flavors we love in the original but not the cost – which we don’t love! It’s loaded with mango, dragonfruit, honey, and if you want, green tea for a zippy, refreshing pick-me-up that’s perfect on any day you want to have a party in your mouth.

I love Starbucks. They have mastered the sugary drink, and for a girl with a sweet tooth like mine, that’s pure joy. What isn’t pure joy is how much they charge for those drinks! One of my favorite cold drinks is their mango dragonfruit refresher. After paying yet another $6 for a cup one day, I decided that was it. This  fruity drink has been on Starbucks’ menu since 2018 and they have it on year round.  That’s why I decided to make my own version. It was too tempting to buy one every time I passed a Starbucks.  This tasty copycat is just as good as the original, and it’s a fraction of the cost. And, whatever leftover ingredients there is, I get to make one of these delightful drinks anytime I want!
