Boost Your Breastmilk with This Mother of the Dragon Drink


It’s been rumored that Starbucks’ “Drinks” increase milk supply. Not all of their beverages – but the colorful secret menu items named the Pink Drink, Violet Drink, and Dragon Drink.

Is that true?

While they are incredibly delicious, I personally haven’t seen a substantial uptick in supply. But, the Drinks do have coconut milk, which is full of hydrating electrolytes.

Regardless, the ingredients are dairy-free, so I love treating myself to these fruity, refreshing treats. 

The Dragon Drink is my personal favorite. Courtney Elizabeth created a YouTube video demoing how to recreate it. Her recipe is spot-on for flavor, though it lacks the caffeine and tea of Starbuck’s original recipe.

I built upon Courtney’s recipe, packing in additional flavor and including an ingredient guaranteed to help with milk supply. Check it out!


Mother of the Dragon Drink Recipe

Makes ~24 ounces (venti)




  • 1 1/2 cups Silk original coconut milk
    (or mix 1/2 container canned coconut milk if you want a creamier take with more coconut flavor)
  • 1/2 cup Mother’s Milk tea, brewed and chilled
    (Mother’s Milk tea has a strong licorice taste, so I don’t like to let the tea brew too long. Not breastfeeding? Skip this ingredient or sub passion fruit tea!)
  • 2 cups Ocean Spray CranMango juice (sub Juicy Juice mango for flavor more similar to Starbucks’)
  • 1-2 pumps vanilla syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon dragonfruit powder

Note: if you prefer a stronger coconut milk, juice, or tea flavor, you can adjust the proportions to taste.


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together.


  2. Blend mixture in the Bullet (this helps the dragonfruit powder to dissolve better, but if you don’t have a blender you can just shake the mix with ice).
  3. Pour over ice and serve.
  4. Try not to drink it in 30 seconds because it’s so dang delicious!
