What can I use instead of coconut milk for drinks?

Luckily, there are a variety of options that can provide a similar texture and flavor. One option could be using almond milk, which is not only dairy-free but also low in calories.

Another alternative could be soy milk, made from soybeans and has a nutty flavor. You can also try oat milk, known for its creamy consistency and a popular choice among those with nut allergies.

And finally, cashew milk is another creamy option that can add richness to your drinks.

Don’t let a lack of coconut milk hold you back from creating delicious and nutritious drinks!

I was expecting something different, I have never had the pink drink from Starbucks.

This looks really good. I had a feeling maybe you had to put red food coloring in, but I was pleased to see that the pink came from the strawberries.

Thank you for sharing your recipe at the Sunday sunshine blog hop!
