Some are lightly caffeinated, but it’s a very small amount compared to a latte. So they’re a great coffee alternative for the afternoon.  

And there are so many exciting flavors! The hardest part is picking just one.

So, put down those coffee mugs and check out these fantastic Starbucks Refreshers!

A Starbucks Refresher is a lightly caffeinated, low-calorie drink that comes in many fruity flavors. 

They’re colorful and look like fruit juice. But the green coffee extract offers a slight hit of energy to get you through the rest of the day.

1. Dragon Drink Refresher

Starbucks Dragon drink refresher is perfect if you have a sweet tooth! It pairs mango dragon fruit juice with a creamy kick from coconut milk. 

And the best part? The freeze-dried dragon fruit pieces take the flavor over the edge. 

Some find it a little too sweet, but you can always add a little extra water if that’s the case. Or allow the ice to melt a bit before diving in. 

2. Pink Drink

The iconic Starbucks Pink Drink is one of the chain’s most popular Refreshers -and for a good reason. 

It pairs strawberry acai, coconut milk, and freeze-dried strawberries. It’s so pretty in pink and tastes like strawberries and cream. 

The Pink Drink used to be a secret menu. But it was so popular, Starbucks gave in to the hype and officially added it to the menu. 

3. TikTok Matcha Pink Drink (Secret Menu)

How do you improve upon perfection? Add matcha, of course!

You’ve likely heard of the Matcha Pink Drink if you’re on TikTok. And I can say that, yes, it’s worth the hype. 

It takes the classic Pink Drink and adds a vanilla sweet cream foam and an earthy kick from matcha. 

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

If you think the Pink Drink is too sweet, this is for you. The matcha helps calm the sweetness and makes it extra pretty. 

Just ask the barista for a Pink Drink topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam and a scoop of matcha. 

4. Pineapple Passionfruit Lemonade

I get serious Dole Whip vibes from the pineapple passionfruit lemonade.

It’s light and tropical with an intense burst of pineapple. And that a kiss of passionfruit makes me weak in the knees. 

It’s the perfect summer drink when you crave something beachy and tropical. And those little bits of freeze-dried pineapple are a dream. 

If you don’t like super sweet drinks, this Refresher is a must-try. And clocking in at just 100 calories, it’s one of the healthier options on the menu.

5. Strawberry Acai Refresher

The Strawberry Acai Refresher is similar to the Pink Drink, but there’s no coconut milk. 

It’s intensely fruity with a fusion of strawberry, acai, passionfruit, and freeze-dried strawberries. 

It contains around 100 calories, so it’s a guilt-free treat you can enjoy any time of day. 

6. Material Girl (Secret Menu)

Here’s another secret menu Refresher making the rounds on TikTok.

It’s like a Pink Drink, only pinker

Chances are, if you ask the barista for a Material Girl, they’ll have no idea what you mean. 

So, ask for a Pink Drink with vanilla sweet cream cold foam with strawberry puree blended into the foam. Than add white mocha sauce. Yum!

7. Gummy Bear Refresher (Secret Menu)

The Gummy Bear Refresher isn’t on the Starbucks menu – at least not yet!

But between the sweet Strawberry Acai Refresher with peach and raspberry juice, it won’t be long.

Seriously, it takes just like a mouthful of gummy bears! And I just know people are flocking to Starbucks to try it.

To order, ask for a Strawberry Acai Refresher with with peach juice instead of water and two pumps of raspberry syrup. 

8. Fruit Punch Drink (Secret Menu)

If fruit punch is your jam, you’ll fall in love with this easy Refresher hack. 

It takes all of Starbucks’ fruity add-ins and mixes them up for an amazing fruity drink.

And it’s so pretty. 

To order, ask for a Valencia Orange Refresher with more water than orange. Then, ask for a pump of raspberry and peach syrup. 

It’s bright and citrusy with a double punch of fresh fruit.

9. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pink Drink (Secret Menu)

What’s better than a strawberry Pink Drink? A chocolate-covered Strawberry Pink Drink!

If you crave a little chocolate with your fruit, this secret menu drink is worth checking out.

It gives off serious chocolate-covered strawberry vibes. 

Ask the barista for a Pink Drink with vanilla sweet cream cold foam with two pumps of blended mocha.

10. Paradise Drink Refresher

The Paradise drink hit the Starbucks menu in 2022, and it was so popular that it stuck around. 

Thank goodness! Because this tropical Refresher is like a Pina Colada pick-me-up. 

If you love the flavor of pineapple, you’ll love this. It pairs pineapple juice with coconut milk and freeze-dried pieces of pineapple. 

All you need is a beach and one of those tiny umbrellas. 

11. Ombre Drink (Secret Menu)

The Ombre Drink is just as tasty as it looks! It has a pretty pink, creamy base topped with vibrant red passionfruit tea. 

It’s a mash-up of their classic Pink Drink with a tea-inspired twist. 

Ask for a Cool Lime Refresher made with coconut milk and passion fruit tea on top. 

Pro tip: You can Ombre-ify almost any coconut-infused drink on the menu with tea!

Feel free to experiment. Who knows – maybe you’ll invent the next TikTok Starbucks trend. 

12. TikTok Sunset Drink (Secret Menu)

No, that’s not a fancy cocktail from a 5-star resort! But the Sunset Refresher sure is almost too pretty to drink. 

But with the pairing of Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade and tea, it’s hard to resist. 

Ask the barista for a Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade with peach juice and topped with Passion Tango tea. 

And make sure they don’t stir it, the layers are the best part!

13. Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

The Mango Dragonfruit Refresher is another great option when you crave something sweet and tropical. 

It is a simple drink that explodes with bold flavors. This refresher pairs ice, mango passionfruit, water, and little pieces of dragon fruit. 

Sometimes the simple creations are the most flavorful. And the best part? A grande only has 90 calories!

14. Skinny Pink Drink

Speaking of low-calorie options, the Skinny Pink drink is a great choice for anyone watching their waistline. 

The classic Pink Drink has a surprising amount of sugar, but you can cut it out with this simple hack. 

Order an unsweetened Passion Tea with no water. Then, ask for light coconut milk, two Stevia, and two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup. 

It tastes just like the Pink Drink, and it will only set you back 40 calories! To put that into perspective, the Pink Drink has 110 calories. 

This hack will allow you to have three Pink drinks for the caloric price of one!
