How to Make Frozen Pink Drinks

1. MAKE WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING

Lightly whisk heavy cream and sugar using a handheld milk frother. Froth until the cream starts to thicken. Set aside in the refrigerator.

2. MAKE FROZEN PINK LATTE

Dice strawberries and blend with water.

Heat strawberry puree, sugar, cut rose buds, green tea, and hibiscus tea bag on the stovetop.

Tea Sommelier’s Tip: Cut rose buds in half so it’s easier to infuse.

Strain solids using a mesh strainer. This part takes a while since you’ll need to dump out the solids once it fills up the strainer. Discard the solids.

3. BLEND

Blend strawberry syrup, ice, and heavy cream until smooth.

4. ASSEMBLE DRINK

Pour frozen pink drink into two cups. Top with whipped cream and garnish with rose petals.

Serve with a straw and drink immediately. 

FROZEN PINK TEA LATTE TIPS

  • The drink can be made caffeine-free by taking out the green tea from the recipe.
  • Use a blender tamper to make the drink smooth. Make sure to get the tamper that fits your blender.
  • If you want to skip making the strawberry puree from scratch, you can buy it premade.

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

What is a frozen tea latte?

In basic terms, a tea latte is “milk tea.” Blend a tea latte with a ton of ice to make it a frozen tea latte.

Is there caffeine in this drink?

Yes. Green tea is in this pink drink which has caffeine. 

I don’t have a Vitamix, will my regular blender work?

Yes, but make sure your blender can handle ice.

Can the cream topping be made ahead of time?

Whipped cream can be made ahead of time (1-2 days) and kept in the refrigerator.

  1. Thank you for sharing your creativity and expertise with us! I cannot wait to make this 🙂

    All I have on hand is loose hibiscus; may I use the loose hibiscus in this recipe instead? If so, how much would you recommend here?

    I’m off to try out my first “Matcha Ginger Beer” (!!!)

    1. Hi Joanna, you can totally use loose hibiscus tea for this recipe. I would go with 1 tablespoon of loose hibiscus.

      1. Thank you so much!! I’ve been so inspired to do all manner of things with tea now that you have opened my mind to the endless possibilities it offers 🙂
