OKAY I KNOW IT’S SUMMER, BUT BEAR WITH ME. I enjoy hot beverages all year round, I love chocolate, and my air conditioning is absolutely cranking out the chilliest air (it’s 38°C with the humidex, what even is that?).

Let’s talk Starbucks. I do love me a tasty Starbucks beverage every once in a while (okay, so, I may or may not have a gold card that is currently good through 2018, that’s how much…). A few weeks ago, this secret menu item made the internet explode, so I figured I needed to get on the band wagon and try this thing out. It’s a Strawberry Acaí Refresher (or Very Berry Hibiscus, if you’re in Canada) with the water subbed for coconut milk. AND HOLY SMOKES IS IT GOOD. But being that some days I don’t feel like splurging for my fix, I decided to experiment at home a little, and I actually came up with a few delicious combinations. Click on through for this SUPER SIMPLE, delicious summer drink!
