Starbucks has a famous "pink drink" that is a concoction of their strawberry acai Refresher, coconut milk, and freeze dried strawberries. I've never tried it, so I have no basis to go off of what it tastes like, but it always looks so pretty, and I absolutely love anything strawberry,

My version uses real, fresh strawberries - I make my own jam-like base. It's blended to perfection, making it an ice cold treat on a hot summer day. Try it for yourself or make it for a loved one who's fond of strawberries.
