This Starbucks Skinny Pink Drink Is Surprisingly Healthy—Here’s How to Order
Pink Drinks don't have to pack all kinds of extra calories. This skinny Pink Drink is the perfect summer go-to!
Starbucks never slows down, and neither does the secret menu. Everything perfect for summer (or anytime you’re feeling something sweet) is on the secret menu, like the decadent Cookies and Cream Frappuccino and the cereal-inspired Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino. But what you order off the secret menu doesn’t have to be unhealthy.
This secret menu drink is a great go-to for when you’re watching carbs and calories but still want to indulge at Starbucks. Here’s how to order a skinny Pink Drink—you’ll be craving this bevvie all year long!
I Want a Pink Drink, But Make It Healthy
This drink totally skips the Strawberry Acai juice that goes in regular Pink Drinks, simply because it’s loaded with sugar. Instead, start your order off with a Venti Passion Tango Iced Tea with no water and ask for a splash or two of coconut milk. Starbucks’ coconut milk comes unsweetened, so there’s no risk of packing on too many extra cals.
For that sweet zing we all crave, include sugar-free vanilla. Forewarning: sugar-free vanilla can be pretty strong, so start out small with two pumps and ask the barista to add gradually if you’re still missing out on some flavor. Two well-mixed stevia packets are also great for sweetening up your skinny Pink Drink.
Last, but certainly not least, top it all off with some dried strawberries, and voila! You’ve got a skinny Pink Drink perfect for summer sippin’. (Here’s how to order a low-carb Pink Drink, as well as other keto Starbucks drinks.)
Since the recipe for this skinny Pink Drink skips the Strawberry Acai juice, there’s no caffeine involved. But if you’re still looking for that caffeine kick, a shot of espresso on the side is sure to fend off the sleepiness.

Keep These Hot Tips in Mind
When you order this drink, make sure you have the recipe on hand. Baristas aren’t trained on secret menu drinks, so you’ll have to know the ingredients to pull off this order. The skinny Pink Drink isn’t a summer exclusive—Starbucks has all of the ingredients (Passion Tango Ice Tea, coconut milk and sugar-free vanilla) in-store all year round.
Time for a Starbucks run. We’re already in the car!
