    New Pineapple Passionfruit & Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverages

    Inspired by the wistful flavors of a pineapple popsicle and passionfruit shaved ice, the new Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refreshers beverage brings all the summer vibes with every sip. The beverage features tropical flavors of pineapple and passionfruit, hand shaken by Starbucks baristas with real diced pineapple pieces and ice to create a delicious island escape that is 100 calories for a Grande (16 fl oz). Customers can also order the beverage with lemonade for an extra burst of flavor.

    The new nondairy Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage adds coconutmilk to the Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refreshers beverage for a creamy, dreamy, tropical sip that is 140 calories for a Grande (16 fl oz).

    “The Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage is like sunshine in a cup – the bright tropical flavors are radiant, happy, and joyful. It’s the perfect summer sip for little moment of escape wherever you are,” says Raegan Powell, a senior product developer from Starbucks R&D who led the creation of the new drink.”

    The Pineapple Passionfruit and Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverages join the colorful, fan-favorite Starbucks Refreshers beverage menu which also includes the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refreshers beverage, Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refreshers beverage and the nondairy Pink Drink and Dragon Drink.
