One of the main questions we always get with any copycat recipe is if this is how they make them in the store, etc. These types of recipes are designed to be similar we’re not making them exactly how you would make them in the store.

That being said, this recipe tastes very similar to a Starbucks strawberry acai refresher and you don’t need to be part of a corporate chain to order ingredients (that normally need to be ordered in very large quantities) so it is a win-win in my book!

If this is one of your favorite drinks you can always make a large batch and store them in the refrigerator so you can just pour them when you are ready to go. This is also a great summer recipe to enjoy by the pool so whenever I have friends coming over to swim I make a batch of these Starbucks strawberry acai refreshers to share!
