    • This recipe is very sweet. I doubled the water just to drink it. Made it with the half packet of crystal light. Made it again with part crystal light part mango juice – much more palatable but again added more water. You also won’t get the Starbucks color – the taste and color resemble a fruit punch rather than dragon fruit. After trying this recipe I just dove in and bought the actual ingredients instead. Thanks for the effort trying to make up this recipe.

      • Thanks! I also had a friend try it with mango juice and chunks of dragon fruit (gives it the actual color) and they loved it! This is my quick on the go flavor 🥰
