I’m so excited to share this little Starbucks hack with you. Not only will you save money but you will be cutting major calories and sugar. It pretty much changed my life.
Starbucks recently came out with a new beverage – the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher. This drink gives me all the tropical feels. It is bursting with color and tastes so fruity and delicious.
Here’s the thing. Like most drinks at Starbucks, it’s expensive and it’s incredibly sweet. This hack will save you $$$ and cut out most of the sugar.
Order a venti (large) Mango Dragonfruit Refresher. It costs about $4.58 with tax. Ask for light ice. Then order a venti ice water. That’s free!
Pour a little bit of the mango dragonfruit refresher into the water and mix. Trust me; your water will still be bursting with flavor. To me, it tastes so much better diluted down.
I can get about eight venti drinks just by adding a small amount to my water. Just keep the unused portion in the fridge and you’ll be sipping on tropical drinks for days.

Now here is the fun part. Like I mentioned earlier, a venti size drink costs about $4.58. That means that each drink will cost you $.57! Woo-hoo!
Next, let’s talk about sugar and calories. In the venti refresher, there are 130 Calories, 30g Carbohydrates and 27g Sugar.
By diluting it down, you are left with 16 Calories, 4g Carbohydrates and 4g Sugar per drink! I love to see those kinds of numbers!
If you have friends coming over, this is a great drink to serve up without breaking the bank.
Starbucks has other flavors as well, and I highly recommend you try this hack with all of them. You won’t be disappointed.
