How to order low-calorie pink drink at Starbucks?


Light Pink Drink: iced passion tango tea with coconut milk, unsweetened

Add a packet or 2 of stevia (A kind of sweetener)

Notice: To keep it naturally sweet, I suggest you add stevia, instead of the Starbucks syrup, to control the exact amount. A good news is that Starbucks offers stevia now!

Dark Pink Drink: half passion, half green unsweetened iced tea

Add a packet or 2 of stevia, if you like more sweet tasty.

Notice: This one contains caffeine due to the added green tea. And if you don’t add stevia, it will taste a little bitter. So, it’s better to add stevia.
