What You’ll Need To Make This Guava Passion Fruit Starbucks Recipe
- Guava juice: You can find guava juice at most grocery stores, or you can make your own by blending fresh guava fruit. Guava is one of the key flavors in this drink and it gives it a lovely sweet taste.
- Passionfruit juice: Passionfruit juice is another key ingredient in this recipe. It adds a tart and tangy flavor that balances out the sweetness of the guava juice. You can find passionfruit juice at most grocery stores.
- Pineapple ginger syrup: This homemade pineapple ginger syrup is what gives this drink its unique flavor. Made with just three simple ingredients - pineapple, ginger, and sugar - it's easy to make and it's absolutely delicious. You can find the recipe for our pineapple ginger syrup here.
- Coconut milk: Coconut milk gives this drink a lovely creamy texture. You can find coconut milk at most grocery stores, or you can make your own by blending fresh coconut meat with water. I recommend that you buy the coconut milk that you find in the dairy section rather than the canned coconut milk for this recipe as canned coconut milk can separate in this recipe.
- Ice: You'll need ice to make this drink cold and refreshing.
Now that you have all of your ingredients, let's get started making this guava passionfruit Starbucks recipe.
Step 1: Make the pineapple ginger syrup.

Serving Suggestions And Substitutions
This guava passionfruit drink is delicious on its own, but if you want to dress it up a bit, here are a few serving suggestions:
- Add a sprig of mint or a slice of lime for garnish.
- Try adding a shot of rum or vodka for a delicious summer cocktail.
- If you can't find passionfruit juice, you can substitute it with another tart fruit juice like grapefruit juice or cranberry juice.
- For a non-alcoholic version of this recipe, simply omit the rum or vodka.
- If you don't have any pineapple ginger syrup on hand, you can use regular ginger syrup or even just plain sugar syrup, pineapple juice, and ground ginger.
- If you don't have any coconut milk, you can substitute it with another milk of your choice like almond milk, soy milk, or even regular cow's milk.
How To Store Leftovers
This guava passionfruit drink is best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge for up to 24 hours. The drink will separate as it sits, so just give it a good stir before serving.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why isn't the drink as pink as the Starbucks version?
A: The color of the drink will depend on the guava juice that you use. If you can't find pink guava juice, you can use white guava juice, but the drink will be a bit paler in color. Some other recipes also add a splash of a red-colored juice, such as tart cherry juice, to enhance the pink color. However, I prefer to leave this out.
Q: Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
A: This guava passionfruit drink is best made fresh, but you can prepare the pineapple ginger syrup ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Q: What other fruit juices can I use in this recipe?
A: If you can't find passionfruit juice, you can substitute it with another tart fruit juice like grapefruit juice or cranberry juice.
Q: Can I still make this drink if I don't want to make the pineapple ginger syrup?
A: If you don't have any pineapple ginger syrup on hand, you can use regular ginger syrup or even just plain sugar syrup, pineapple juice, and ground ginger. Just keep in mind that the flavor will be slightly different from the original recipe.
