Foodie Post: Rainbow Drinks

Hello lovelies! How are you today? ♥ As promised, we will now get back to the regular topics in the posts, starting with these drinks so many people have been raving about this summer. Yes the Starbucks rainbow drinks. I found easy recipes for making these at home via Popsugar, and decided to try if they actually work. They do. Below, you can see how they turned out.

purple and pink drink
I made all but the blue one - although if you've seen my Instagram, you may know I tried that one out too. But since it is basically just purple drink without the berries, you can surely make one without my help. Or just look at the video I linked in the intro of this post. Above you can see the purple and pink drinks, and below green and yellow ones.


green and yellow drink
I absolutely love these drinks since they are easy, made of affordable and accessible ingredients adn they are dairy free. Probably even vegan. And gluten free, naturally.

Like said, the recipes are via Popsugar, but I've made notes on what I used since I did modify mine according to what I could easily get my hands on.

So that's it, four simple recipes for you to try at home or surprise your friends with. And, even my hubby liked these and he's a picky eater so that basically means these go for anyone. Except the green one because he doesn't like matcha at all. Which I can't understand.

Have you tried these out in Starbucks or at home? Let me know in the comments below!

That's all I have for you today, and next time, I might be actually posting an outfit. It's been a while since the last one, hasn't it? If you want to see more from me, follow me on social media - especially Instagram and Facebook - where I post all sorts of content daily. I'm really trying to up my Instagram Stories game at the moment so all feedback about that one is appreciated! I'll see you soon in another post!
Have a wonderful day ♥
