Pink Drink has a teeny tiny bit of caffeine, though not as much that it becomes a coffee or espresso. Since it doesn’t have that much caffeine, Pink Drink became part of Starbucks’ Refreshing Line. The Pink Drink has a green coffee extract that made it lightly caffeinated, though it is still called a Refresher.

In a 16 fluid ounce, Grande is 45 milligrams of caffeine, 140 calories, 27 grams of carbs, and 2.5 grams of fat. It may not be that healthy, but it is still better than the other heavily caffeinated drinks! If you prefer it that way though, that is.

Just so you know, an 8-ounce cup of green or black tea has 30-50 milligrams of caffeine, and an 8-ounce cup of coffee contains closer to 80 to 100 mg. An 8-ounce energy drink is about 40-250 mg of caffeine. Compared to this kind of drink, the caffeine in Pink Drink is pretty much nothing.

When making your own drink, you have the choice to leave out the green coffee extract to have kids get a taste. It’ll be a child-friendly refreshment drink, especially in hot weather. Let the kids have a go at this sweet tasty beverage!
