What Do Coconut Refreshers Taste Like?

Coconut refreshers are as easy on the eyes as they are on the palate. 

But what do coconut refreshers taste like? Let’s just say if you‘re a fan of fruit tea, then you will enjoy a coconut refresher. 

Lemonade Puree


You will love Dunkin coconut refreshers if you find joy in aesthetically pleasing food. 

Each refresher has a unique color, from baby pink to vibrant peach and powder purple.

The color starts vibrant and is softened by the coconut milk.


Some say they taste watered down, but I think they’re sweeter than the Starbucks equivalent.

I tried the strawberry and peach, and the strawberry was hands down my favorite.

Each refresher features different fruit combinations. It’s safe to assume you can find your favorite.


The calorie count will vary. It depends on the flavor and size you choose. 

On average, medium coconut refreshers will set you back 150 – 180 calories

It is worth noting that Dunkin drink sizes are bigger than other similar chains so having a higher calorie count is fair.

Officially the Coconut Refreshers are not on the menu. They appear to come and go. 

Fortunately, all of the ingredients are kept on hand. So, if you want a coconut refresher, just ask, and they will make it for you.

However, they do not contain milk or animal products, so it’s possible they could be vegan.
