Among the uniquely delicious and vibrant Starbucks drinks is the amazing Mango Dragonfruit lemonade, which is basically a twist of the regular Mango dragonfruit refresher with extra fruit and extra flavor. I prefer this sweeter version with actual Asian dragonfruit cubes. Trust me, this makes all the difference!
I present to you this easy and simple recipe that literally won’t take any of your time to make and will yield you the most satisfactory and refreshing drink ever. Same delicious taste as Starbucks’ original drink, at a much cheaper price.

Some important tips:

  • Make sure the Dragonfruit powder is completely dissolved in the grape juice before mixing it with the rest of the juices.
  • You can get rid of the black particles in the juice by straining the mix through a coffee filter or a cheesecloth.
  • You can substitute the lemonade with water to make the Mango dragonfruit refresher, but you will have to add syrup or sugar to sweeten it.
  • The ratio between the different fruit juices determines the final color. Adding more mango juice will result in a slightly different color than the signature pink one.
