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.

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! Starbucks, pink drink, dragon fruit refresher, coconut milk, ice cream, vegan, plant based, fun flavors, pink drink ice cream, dragon fruit, vegan, dairy free, ice cream maker, fun, summer recipes
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.

    Loved making this! For those of us that don’t have an ice cream maker, I froze a metal bowl in my freezer for 30 minutes then poured the mixture in the bowl. Then I took the bowl out of the freezer every 30 minutes for about 3 hours (or until fully frozen) and blended it with a handheld blender so it would freeze creamy and consistent instead of in chunks. A great substitute if you don’t have an ice cream maker! Thanks, Tara, for the recipe!

    What ice cream maker do you have? Sorry if you’ve mentioned it in other posts, I may have missed it! I have the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer and have never used it but you’ve inspired me with how easy it is!

    I would love to see the chocolate peanut butter flavor or banana! I LOVE banana ice cream!

    Looks so good! I must confess that I was gifted an ice cream maker years ago and it’s still sitting unopened….you’re gonna change that, I can tell! I love ice cream, but I think making it has always intimidated me. Can’t wait to see what flavors you post this summer. I had a yummy coconut pineapple cone yesterday ….(hint, hint)

    You are really making me want an ice cream maker! OMG!
    Please do a YT video! I watched your Vlogmas’ religiously and loved every minute! I’d love one for cookies and cream…. or banana fudge (omg my favoriteeee!)
    I never go to Starbucks, so I’ve never had the drink…. but it sounds delicious!

      Best investment ever! I’ve been missing Vlogmas! Thinking about doing a Christmas in July dinner for a Vlogmas in July lol I didn’t think I’d do it again this year, but I’m really leaning towards it.

    All of your food is so pretty and this one is just such a fun pop of color!! I was wondering if all your ice cream recipes call for the tapioca starch and if you could sub out arrowroot or glucomannan?

    I can’t wait for all your ice cream posts- all the ones you have made sound amazing! The chocolate pb would be one of my favorites! And of course, a YouTube tutorial would be awesome!

    I am not a coffee drinker and I only drink herbal tea but I am loving ordering a keto version of the pink drink from Starbucks. I am still working on the perfect combination. I ordered it one time and it was so good so I am trying to recreate that.

    Have a great weekend!

      Yes! Any stabilizer you’d like to use will probably work just fine. I’ve made it without it and it’s coming out well.

      I will totally start doing them for youtube to go with the recipes!!

    The cinnamon roll flavor! That one looked sooooooo good. I’m a sucker for cinnamon rolls and snickerdoodle cookies so I’m ready for that one haha. Seriously all your ice cream pictures are inspiring me to buy an ice cream maker now. I love the idea of knowing what’s in your ice cream.

      The snickerdoodle was one of my absolute favorites!! My mom texted me last night asking if I’d make it for them 😆 The ice cream maker is the best investment!

    Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it!

    1. Have you made a vegan coffee I’ve cream yet? My attempts have been unsuccessful &I would love to see your version!
    2. YouTube tutorials are always helpful. =)
    3. So far I’ve only had the dragonfruit refresher, but you’ve sold me on trying the dragon drink!

    Just watched your (second?) mukbang where you try the dragon drink for the first time. 😂👍 Great start to my day!

    I love this idea – sadly no dragon drink available at starbucks in the UK but if I could find a dragonfuit I’d definitely try making my own as well as making the ice cream.

    Also I’m cracking up at your recipe because the recipe card says 15 days to make!

    I love the bright pink colour! 🙂 I’ve only made ice cream once in my life (home ec class) and it was a failure. But I’d totally try this if I had an ice cream maker! ❤️✨

      haha! almost all my home ec creations were fails. I crushed the egg we had to take care of, and the fake baby we had to bring home wouldn’t stop crying so I put her in the garage. FAIL!!
