Starbucks Copycat Peach Green Tea W/Coconut Milk

Copycat Starbucks Peach Green Tea W/Coconut Milk

Years ago now (how sad is it that I have to say YEARS) Starbucks had a lime refresher and it was the epitome of a perfect refreshing summer beverage, especially when you got it made with coconut milk 🤤🥥☀️

Now traumatically enough… Starbucks got rid of that, one of my most loved drinks of all time.

This last year, I decided to try the peach green tea with coconut milk as a way to fill that void and ya know what?? It wasn’t half bad!
Was it that same utter washing over of summer breezes and glorious cool subtleties as the lime refresher had boasted? I don’t honestly totally remember that drink anymore so I don’t know 😂
BUT I CAN say, I truly love the peach green tea made with coconut, a LOT.
So much so, that we (my sister and I) decided we must attempt to replicate it at our homes because come summer, we aren’t going to be running into Starbucks to quench our drink desires nor, do we appreciate what they do to our wallets innards 🤪

The hardest part of this ‘recipe’ aside from trying not to make multiples of it everyday, is probably brewing the tea and that isn’t very difficult at all 🤪

So, with a special thanks to the ‘more than half the recipe’ creator, my sister, here you have it 🤓

The ultra intricate, in depth and specially formulated recipe –

Ingredients:

1 Cup Peach Juice

1/2 Cup Tazo Zen Green Tea

1/4 Cup Silk Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Mix and Enjoy!

Recipe notes:

Peach juice was a little tricky to find and as it’s a no name brand, I realize it may not be found everywhere. Check the refrigerated juice area, as we couldn’t find any in the regular unrefrigerated drink section.

The brand of tea is non negotiable, it’s got that hint of mint which literally MAKES the drink. Boil water and add 1 tea bag per each cup of water.
Steep for 8 minutes, cool and use for the drink making.

We’ve found that aggressively shaking the coconut milk before adding it to the drink, helps reduce the curdled look. The curdling doesn’t actually affect the taste or texture but purely for enjoyments sake, it’s nicer to not see what look like chunks 🤓

Ice, straw & a pretty glass to up the enjoyment factor are also advised 🤓👌🏻

Sip and dream of the forthcoming summer, if you live where there is currently snow.
If you don’t and it’s warm and sunny where you are, please just drink your drink and be quiet 🤪

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
