Addie goes to Starbucks with her parents and she loves the “pink drink” there. Starbucks isn’t somewhere I’m going . . even for Addie. She’s been telling me how good they were so I told her to see if she could find a recipe online and I’d make something close. There are many recipes online, many of which have some kind of acai “refresher” and I didn’t have anything like that. Addie was sure that Starbucks uses freeze dried strawberries and we had those so that worked.
I had hibiscus tea so I brewed up a batch of that and sweetened it. I had sweetened coconut milk and Addie assured me there was a “hint” of coconut in it so I added a bit of that. I only put about 2 tablespoons of the sweetened condensed milk so that can should last through at least five or six batches of the drinks. Then I poured in a bit of whole milk, tossed in a handful of freeze dried strawberries and used the immersion blender.
Addie said it wasn’t exactly the same but she said it was really good. Vince and I both liked them.
