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 –
1 Cup Peach Juice
1/2 Cup Tazo Zen Green Tea
1/4 Cup Silk Unsweetened Coconut Milk
Mix and Enjoy!
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 🤪
