Copycat Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

A light refreshing drink reminiscent of the 'bucks version of the same. Only this one has much less sugar and artificial flavourings.

Servings: 4


  • 1 cup mango pulp
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice (or grape juice)
  • 4 cups water (sub with brewed green or white tea for a caffeinated version)
  • 2 tbsp freeze dried dragon fruit powder (also called pink pittaya powder*)


  • In a small cup dissolve the dragonfruit powder into about half a cup of water. Once dissolved, mix in all the other ingredients. Taste and adjust for desired sweetness.
  • Serve cold over a tall glass of ice.


*I found dragonfruit (pink pitayya) powder on Amazon.
The mango pulp might settle a bit if you are making this ahead of time. Just give it a stir before serving and it will be fine.
Pro tip: Turn this into bubble tea with some homemade boba!
