Pot of Golden Starfruit Refresher
What's a Refresher?
According to Starbucks, a refresher is "made with green coffee extract, a natural source of energy, and real fruit juice to create a thirst-quenching, low calorie beverage".
In addition to the energy boost it can provide, green tea is one of the healthiest beverages you can drink and is very high in antioxidants. Green tea can be combined with natural or artificial flavors. Natural flavors are derived from fruits, plant, spices and other natural ingredients.
A Pot of Gold-en Starfruit and Mango!
Green tea can be combined with dried fruits to create a fruity refreshment. For this refresher, meet Golden Starfruit tea. Exotic and radiant, it lights up this fruity trifecta of starfruit, papaya, and mango. Golden Starfruit tea is the ultimate summer thirst quencher, especially iced. In cooler months, sip it hot to beat the winter blues with its playful, tropical flavors.
This refresher is a natural and delicious non-alcoholic drink that can be enjoyed daily! It contains just enough caffeine to give you a mid-day boost without being overpowering. The best part is that it only takes 3 ingredients: tea, mango puree and ice! Easily make this ahead of time in bulk and have a refreshing drink ready to go.
