Make a delicious mango dragon fruit refresher at home for you and your family members. It is similar to the Starbucks dragon drink and has some of the healthy ingredients in it. You can make it with soda water, or you can use coconut milk for a sweet fruity drink. 

Ingredients

  • Half cup mango peeled and diced
  • Two green tea bags
  • soda water optional
  • coconut milk optional
  • One lime juiced, omit if using coconut milk instead of soda water
  • Half cup dragon fruit peeled and diced.

           Procedure-

  • Heat 8 ounces of water and steep two green tea bags for 44-5 minutes in it. Discard the bags and let the tea cool.
  • In a blender add the mango, dragon fruit, lime juice and green tea. Blend until it is mixed well.
  • Top the glasses with ice and fill them two-third with the puree and then add soda water to it. If you want to replace it with coconut milk, then that’s ok. Add 2-3 tablespoons of canned coconut milk or add one third cup coconut milk beverage to it. 
  • You can also add date syrup to it if you want it sweeter.

Recipe Notes- The original Starbucks dragon drink is made with the green coffee extract, but we use green tea in this recipe because not only is it accessible but also a lot cheaper than the trendy extract.
