- The Starbucks Mango Dragonfruit refresher is sometimes watered down. We prefer to make ours with more fruit and less water.
- The color of your drink will be more intense pink (almost purple) if you add more dragon fruit powder and a few pieces of fresh red dragon fruit. The color may be different depending on the powder you use.
- The green coffee bean powder gives the caffeine boost. This can be substituted by green tea extract or caffeine powder. Omit if you prefer caffeine-free.
- Store the drink in a bottle or a large pitcher with a lid on and in the fridge.
- You could prepare a modified version by replacing the water with lemonade or coconut milk.
- Dragonfruit also makes delicious Starbucks smoothies. If you have any leftover dragonfruit, you can make a refreshing Dragon fruit smoothie at home.
