The Violet Drink is a mix of the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher blend combined with coconut milk and ice. The violet hue will make this drink the perfect aesthetic booster for your Instagram, trust me.
Another drink that every Starbucks lover seems to need to take a picture of is the infamous Pink Drink. It is a mix of the Strawberry Acaí Refresher blend with passion fruit and coconut milk. Mixed together, these ingredients create the perfect shade of pink.
Strawberry Acaí Refresher
This delicious drink is one of the most popular non-coffee drinks from Starbucks (well, besides the coffee ones)! It is a mix of strawberry, passion fruit, and acaí. You can also get it with lemonade as well to sweeten it up even more.
Blended Strawberry Lemonade
Awarded as one of the most refreshing summer drinks, this blended strawberry lemonade is one of the perfect non-coffee drinks to keep you cool during a day trip to the beach or on a hot summer day.
Comfort Brewed Wellness Tea
If you’re not a coffee person, maybe it’s time to test out tea. This tea is perfect if you are super stressed out and need something soothing. The Comfort Brewed Wellness Tea includes lemon, ginger, fennel, licorice root, and mint. All of the ingredients together will hopefully start to ease your nerves!
Iced Passion Tango Tea
Not a fan of iced coffee? Iced tea is the way to go! This Iced Passion Tango Tea is a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, and apple. This flavorful drink is almost guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
Mint Majesty Tea
This tea, blended together with mint and just a little bit of lemon verbena, is the perfect drink if you’re in need of something refreshing. Plus, it’s good for you and caffeine-free! Side note: you can actually ask for any tea as a latte as well. Doing this is way healthier than ordering a normal latte, so you’ll feel better drinking it.
Caramel Brulée Frappuccino
This drink is perfect if you’re looking for something that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Frappuccinos may be high in calories, but they are definitely a delicious choice if you’re looking for a blast of sugar. If you are obsessed with caramel, this frappuccino will take care of your cravings.
Have you ever been so overwhelmed and just needed a break? Well, take a seat with this tea in your hand and just relax. It is a mix of peach, candied pineapple, chamomile blossoms, lemon verbena, and rose hips. It also doesn’t have any caffeine in it, so you could even drink it before bed!
Chai Tea Latte
Made with black tea, cardamom, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon and cloves, this latte tastes like heaven. You can get it hot during to warm you up during the winter, or iced for a refreshing spring or summer cool-down drink.
Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
This is another drink to get if you’re looking for something sweet. Tired of drinking just normal hot chocolate? The caramel in this hot chocolate will definitely sweeten it up. This drink will make you wonder why you never tried salted caramel and hot chocolate together in the first place.
Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino
If you want a non-coffee drink that tastes like a milkshake, this is the one for you. This frappuccino is made of mocha and chocolate chips blended together for a ton of chocolatey goodness. Chocolate lovers everywhere need to try this drink ASAP.
Caramel Apple Spice
Imagine apple juice topped with cinnamon syrup and caramel sauce. That’s basically what this drink is. And, lucky for you, you don’t need to imagine it because this drink is just a Starbucks run away. This non-coffee drink is made for those cold winter nights when you just want to drink hot apple cider and sit by the fire.
Iced Peach Green Tea
As a non-coffee drinker, I know how hard it can be to get energy. Thankfully, iced tea exists, and this drink is perfect if you need some extra energy to get you through the day. It has just the right amount of sweetness, so you won’t feel like it’s too much or too little. Green tea doesn’t taste that great to me normally, but with the peach flavor you can barely taste the green tea.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
This peppermint hot chocolate will warm you up on those cold December nights right before the holidays! Also, this hot chocolate isn’t seasonal, so you can get it any time of the year. If you’re feeling like Christmas in July, simply take a trip to Starbucks and order up! This non-coffee drink will give you that holiday feeling no matter what time of year it is.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Smoothies are my favorite drink year-round. I know the last drink people think of ordering when they go to Starbucks is a smoothie, but their smoothies are actually pretty good. I always get the strawberry and banana smoothie, so this is the only one I have tried, but I’m sure the other blends are just as good. You can also add protein powder to any smoothie. This drink is great if you are aiming for a healthy alternative!
Contrary to popular belief, Starbucks doesn’t just sell coffee. All of these drinks are all well-liked and guaranteed to make you want to keep spending all your extra money at Starbucks.
