If you regularly check your Instagram news feed, you must have spotted the deliciously looking pink drinks from Starbucks - they have taken over the Internet! The pink drink is on their secret menu, so no one knows exactly how they make them. What we know is that they use acai green tea, coconut milk, freeze-dried strawberries and some kind of sweetener or juice.

As the Starbucks original is not suitable for a keto diet, I made my own keto pink drink that is sugar-free and low in carbs. I used two types of tea (acai green tea and hibiscus), coconut milk and natural low-carb sweetener. To boost the flavour and make it creamier, I blended fresh strawberries with the chilled tea and topped it with even more fresh strawberries.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Unfortunately Starbucks version is a lot more sugar laden than you posted.  They use a strawberry acai premix that's full of sugar with caffiene from the green coffee bean and sumatra coconut milk that also has sugar and freeze dried strawberries.
Yours looks delicious!
