Starbucks just added a new ‘mango dragonfruit’ drink -- and why the magenta-colored fruit is taking over menus.
Dragon fruit is on fire.
Starbucks added its new “Mango Dragonfruit Refresher” iced beverage to its menu on Tuesday, a sweet and fruity sip made with actual chunks of freeze-dried dragon fruit — the latest use of the buzzy summer time staple.
The magenta drink is made from a natural green coffee flavor, so expect a tiny jolt of caffeine. It can be customized a number of ways, like adding coconut milk instead of water for a sweeter, creamier taste, or as a frappuccino. The “Refresher” sip contains 110 calories for a grande (16-ounce cup), and has no artificial colors or sweeteners.
