What Does the Pink Drink Taste Like?
The original Pink Drink from Starbucks tastes like a creamy pink starburst. Yes, yum! The unfortunate thing about this copycat Pink Drink recipe is that the flavor is somewhat different than what you may be expecting.
This is because Starbucks is smart and they do not sell VIA Refresher packets of the original Pink Drink’s flavor. Even so, the Very Berry Hibiscus flavor is still super yummy AND pink!
This copycat Pink Drink has more of a tropical fruity taste. Still very satisfying and lactogenic, I think you’ll like it just as much!
How to Make A Knock-Off Pink Drink to Increase Milk Supply
Here’s how to make a copycat pink drink breastfeeding moms swear by with an instant breast milk boosting effect!
Now, you don’t have to pay the premium Starbucks’ prices or even leave your home to get your low milk supply fix!
Just three ingredients and you can make this drink yourself!
- Starbuck’s Very Berry Hibiscus VIA Instant Refreshers packets
- So Delicious Organic coconut milk
- Dehydrated strawberries
- Just add your packet of Very Berry Hibiscus to 1/4 cup of warm water, stir to dissolve.

P.S. There’s still one more homemade pink drink recipe in this post, don’t leave before you get that one too! Because a mama needs options, right!?
- 1 packet Starbucks' Very Berry Hibiscus VIA Instant Refresher

Does Coconut Milk Increase Breast Milk Supply?
While there is no official claims made yet, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that the minerals and hydration provided by coconut milk help to nourish a mother’s cells. In turn, creating an environment fit to produce more milk for her offspring.
Also remember, that dehydration can severely impede breast milk production too. There is also no doubt that sitting down to relax and enjoy a tasty beverage like the pink drink is going to aid in a healthy environment for making milk.
