Inspired by the flavors of Starbucks' dragon drink but made with real dragon fruit pulp (not powder like Starbucks) and boosted with some protein to help keep your blood sugar regulated. No blender required, just shake and go!
Healthy Dragon Drink (Starbucks Copycat)
16 fl. oz.
fresh pulp from half of a dragon fruit (or substitute with 1 pack thawed dragon fruit pulp smoothie pack)
6-8 oz. 100% mango juice*
4 oz. unsweetened coconut milk
½ to 1 scoop Growing Naturals vanilla rice protein*
1 cup ice
Place all ingredients into a shaker bottle (with whisk ball), leaving protein powder last and shake until thoroughly combined.
Add half a scoop of protein for just 7.5g protein, or the full scoop for 15g protein. You can substitute rice protein with vanilla pea protein as well.
What if I don't like mango juice?
Feel free to substitute mango juice with another tropical fruit juice like pineapple or use a combination of tropical fruit juices.
