Starbucks is known by most for their coffee, but I’m here to make sure no one misses out on their tasty mango drinks!

Trust me, they’re way better than most juice bars.

From creamy and dessert-like, to sharp and refreshing, Starbucks has a surprising amount of tasty mango drinks.

I want to make sure no one else misses out on these tropical pick-me-ups, so let’s jump right in to my top 9 favorites!

1. The Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

Starbucks Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

Not only is this probably the most popular mango Starbucks drink, but there was a time when pretty much everyone around me was obsessed with it. 

On a particularly hot day, I couldn’t bring myself to order a coffee and decided to grab the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher (or Dragon Drink) to cool off. 

I couldn’t believe how good the dragonfruit and mango tasted together, with a much more authentic taste than I would’ve thought. 

It isn’t a ton of calories either, with 90 calories and 19g of sugar.[1]

The freeze-dried dragon fruit also lets you chew a bit on it, which for some reason I absolutely love. 

Ask Barista For:
  • 3 scoops vanilla bean powder and heavy cream. Trust me. This is one of the best drinks I’ve ever had from Starbucks.

2. Mango Black Tea  

Starbucks Mango Black Tea

I’m not someone who really enjoys black tea, but I randomly decided to try the Mango Black Tea and loved its earthy-fruitiness.

Consisting of loose leaf premium black tea, tangy mango, passionfruit, and just a splash of lemonade to add dimension, it’s ultra refreshing.

This is a kind of a twist on the classic Arnold Palmer, with the tea and sweet mango shaken to release the ingredients’ full potential. 

With 100 calories, it’s not going to ruin fitness goals, either. Some Starbucks locations have this one in a ready-to-go Teavana bottle.  

3. Mango Frappuccino 

Starbucks Mango Frappuccino

Frappuccinos are pretty popular, but this one is on the secret menu, so I have to have the ingredient list ready. 

I love ordering the Starbucks Mango Frappuccino with coconut milk as the ingredients blend beautifully.

Essentially, this is just the Vanilla Bean Frapp, subbing a scoop of vanilla bean powder for mango syrup. 

It’s simple, not too sweet, and creamy.

It’s not too nice on the diet though, as it’s 400 calories and 59g of sugar. 

How To Order This Secret Menu Drink
  • Ask for the classic Vanilla Bean Frappuccino mix, but with 1 less scoop of vanilla bean powder than usual. They then add in mango syrup!

4. Pineapple Bliss Drink  

Starbucks Pineapple Drink

The Pineapple Bliss Drink gives pineapple upside down cake vibes!

It's one of Starbucks mango drinks on the secret menu, but every time I let a friend try it they fall in love. 

The combination of mango, dragon fruit, and pineapple syrup makes this Pineapple Bliss Drink the perfect summertime drink.

However, I love the fact that it also delivers an immune system boost and anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to the ginger and turmeric.  

Topped off with Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam, it adds a kind of dessert-like finish.

I’ve never seen exact calories of this drink stated anywhere, but per my calculations it should come in at around 120 calories and 26g of sugar

How To Order This Secret Menu Drink
  • Ask for classic Starbucks mango-dragonfruit refresher combo, along with ginger, pineapple syrup, ice, a bit of turmeric, and topped off with Vanilla Sweet cold foam. 

5. Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher

When temperatures start rising, I tend to reach for a thirst-quenching lemonade. 

The Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, with more complex flavor notes from what I typically try.

All the ingredients for this Starbucks drink are hand-shaken for a vibrant, complex tropical beverage with a caffeinated kick to jumpstart your day.[2]

It comes with 140 calories, 31g of sugar, and 0g of fat, so the lemonade version is a bit higher in sugar. 

6. Dragon Drink

The colors and flavors of the Dragon Drink for some reason always remind me of Hawaii.

It stands out from the crowd, thanks to its luxurious texture and vivid green and magenta colors! 

It’s essentially just the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher with coconut milk for a creamy, fruity experience that instantly transports me mentally to an exotic island. 

Each contains 130 calories, 23g of sugar, and 3g of fat (from the coconut milk).  

7. Frozen Mango Smoothie  

Starbucks Mango Smoothie

This one is pretty straightforward and, as you can probably guess from the name, is just a regular mango smoothie. 

Mango, a bit of ice, and milk are all it requires, and it’s also one of the few caffeine-free Starbucks drinks available.

The Frozen Mango Smoothie is also a great breakfast alternative for when I’m running late.

There are 270 calories in one serving of these Starbucks mango drinks, and I like to ask for a scoop of protein powder to be added.  

Ask Barista For:
  • Ask for whipped cream and caramel drizzle for a more decadent smoothie.

8. Organic Defense Up (Evolution Fresh)  

Starbucks Evolution Fresh Organic Defense Up Juice

These blended juice drink Starbucks option can be conveniently found in the Starbucks Grab-and-Go section. 

To be honest, it’s not my very favorite, but it’s made me feel better when I feel like I’m getting a cold.

The Organic Defense Up is a detoxifying juice with mango, cherry, apple, and pineapple all blended together to create a satisfying, delicious drink without any extra sugars or flavors.

Despite this, it still contains 170 calories and 37g of sugar.

9. Organic Superfruit Greens (Evolution Fresh)  

Starbucks Evolution Fresh Organic Super Fruit Greens

These Starbucks mango fruit drinks are similar to the Organic Defense up in that it's 100% just the important ingredients, without the added sweeteners, milks, etc.

The organic super fruit greens cold pressed juice is made to go, consisting of pure mango puree, spinach, and vitamin C to keep that immune system resilient.[3

Plus, it just tastes good and is a great way to start off your day with some organic super fruit greens.

This Starbucks mango drink is caffeine free and has no artificial sweeteners but with 240 calories and 50g of sugar, it’s may not fit into everyone’s diets.

How to make Starbucks Mango Dragon Fruit Drink

After trying the famous Starbucks Dragon Drink once, I became addicted and had to figure out how to make it at home. 

Here’s all that’s needed:

  • Dragonfruit Powder – not only for flavor but also for that gorgeous rich pink color! Frozen dragonfruit pitaya packs are a good alternative to the powder. Costco, Whole Foods, and other major stores usually have them. 
  • Mango juice - fresh-squeezed is always best in terms of flavor and nutritional value.
  • Green tea - for that boost of caffeine and flavor
  • Water 
  • Simple syrup, stevia, or honey 

Here’s how to make the drink:  

  • 1
    First, prepare the green tea as it’ll take some time to steep. Then, let it chill in the refrigerator.  
  • 2
    Next, take the dragonfruit powder and ½ cup of water and mix until it’s entirely dissolved.  
  • 3
    Take the rest of the water and mango juice and pour both into a pitcher.  
  • 4
    Add the cool green tea and dragonfruit mixture to the water and fruit juice, mixing all of them together.  
  • 5
    Take the preferred sweetener (simple syrup, stevia, etc.), and add to taste. Mix this well.  
  • 6
    Take an empty glass, filling it halfway with ice.  
  • 7
    Pour mixture over the ice, filling the glass almost to the rim.  
  • 8
    Serve and enjoy the homemade Dragon Drink!
