Copycat Starbucks Orange Drink

Orange Drink 51

If you’ve been active on social media this summer, then you know about Starbuck’s secret menu rainbow drinks.   It started off with Pink Drink.   Then Purple Drink.   Now Starbucks has a whole rainbow of drinks.    I found about them because I follow Starbucks on Instagram.

One thing that is a little confusing about ordering these drinks- is that many Starbucks baristas don’t actually know how to make these drinks.  You have to provide the recipe you want.   When I ordered my real Starbucks Orange Drink, I read the recipe off from this Instagram post provided by Starbucks.

But since I had to read the recipe off for the Barista when I ordered this drink- It made me realize how easy it would be to make this at home!

This Instagram Post states that the recipe for Orange drink is:  Orange- Mango juice with vanilla bean powder and a splash of coconut milk.    So this was actually simple enough.    Naked makes a great  mango-orange juice.   Plus, I keep this ground vanilla powder in my fridge for baking.

This may look like this vanilla powder is super expensive.  But recipes require just a little bit.  I have been going through this package for well over a year- and I am not even 1/2 way through it.

I usually don’t drink a lot of juice- just because of the calorie content.   But I only added 1/3 of this 15 ounce container to my orange drink.  Plus, at least it is 100% juice.

Copycat Starbucks Orange Drink  ( Makes 1 )

Ingredients 

5 ounces – Mango- Orange Juice- I used Naked

1/8 teaspoon of vanilla bean powder

1 1/3 cup of coconut milk- the kind from the milk section of your grocery store- not canned

2 cups of ice

Method:  In a cup or mason jar- mix together Mango-Orange juice, coconut milk and vanilla powder.   Make sure to mix it really well.   Add Ice and Enjoy.   I personally like to let the ice simmer in the drink for about 5 minutes before drinking it- but you can enjoy however you like it.

This was seriously tasty.   This orange drink is my favorite of all the rainbow drinks I have tried.   I imagine that some of the other ones might be more difficult to make at home- because they’re made from teas.   Let me look into it.
