How to Order a Skinny Pink Drink at Starbucks

If you desire a rich strawberry treat, the pink drink will be your perfect choice. However, you can modify it to slash the calories from 140 to a mere 40. This is achievable by ordering a skinny version of the pink drink. Firstly, ask for a Grande passion iced tango tea without water and two splashes of coconut. Secondly, flavor it up with a pump of sugar-free vanilla flavor and sweeten it up with two stevia packs.

The sugar-free vanilla is strong in flavor, so you might want to keep things moderate, but if it doesn’t bother you, ask the barista to add more. Coconut and vanilla come sugar-free, so your sugar intake will be slashed significantly. This skinny version intentionally skips the strawberry acai refresher to avoid sugar and calories.

At Starbucks, skinny has nothing to do with the outer appearance but looks at the content. A skinny drink has the lowest possible fat content and sugar level. In our pink drink case, it does not have fat even when it’s not skinny. This means that skinny is the elimination of calories and sugar in our pink drink context.

Starbucks has a wide range of variations, and one can add whatever ingredient floats their boat. Some people add a dash of nonfat dairy milk instead of coconut. The drink remains skinny, but with a thicker feel. The topping is also modifiable with vanilla sweet cream or no topping at all.
