Homemade Ice Cream of the Week: Starbuck’s Dragon Drink
Now that’s officially summer; I’ll be kicking off my summer ice cream series! Each week, you can expect a new fun homemade ice cream flavor that’ll be completely vegan. My ice cream maker has been one of the best purchases I’ve made yet. Kyle and I have been making homemade ice cream after dinner almost every night, and it tastes so much better than the kind found in the freezer section. Plus, it’s better when you have full control over what goes into your ice cream.
I thought it would be fun to kick off this ice cream series with one of my favorite summery drinks as the inspiration for this weeks flavor! The Starbuck’s Dragon Drink! 😋 So what’s a dragon drink? It’s a sweet mango & dragon fruit tea hand-shaken with creamy coconut milk, ice, and real diced dragon fruit. This is one of my favorite go-to drinks after a long run. I went through the drive-through at Starbucks to get this drink for the ice cream recipe, but if you want to make it at home, all you have to do is blend two cups of coconut milk, one mango, 1/4 cup dragon fruit, and your choice of sweetener!
I love that the ice cream takes about fifteen minutes to make! It’s quicker to do it at home than driving to the store when you’re craving a pint. For the past four nights, we’ve been stuck on chocolate peanut butter ice cream, and it’s better than any flavor we’ve ever bought from the store. I think this homemade vegan ice cream obsession started after our trip to Savannah. Their coconut milk strawberry ice cream was unreal, and it inspired me to make my own.
Starbuck's Dragon Drink Ice Cream Recipe
- 1 Venti Starbuck's Dragon Drink (no ice)
- 2 Tbsps Tapioca Starch
- 1 Tbsp Agave or your choice sweetener
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tbsps Coconut Cream (from the can)
Blend the dragon drink, tapioca starch, agave, vanilla, and coconut cream on high.
Add the mixture to the ice cream maker for fifteen minutes

I think this recipe is so fun and simple for the summer months. With its natural bright pink color, it’ll be sure to impress anyone! Especially the Starbuck’s lovers. You can also do this same recipe with the Pink Drink from Starbuck’s as well.
We bought gluten-free sugar cones and ice cream containers to freeze the extra off amazon!
The next fun summer flavor is going to be S’mores!!!!
