Purple drink Rocket Fuel

MCT Purple Drink Rocket Fuel

This Purple Drink will win you over to the MCT oil side of life because its just that good. When I first started Keto I thought that MCT oil was just snakeoil, a hoax. As a result of creating this Purple Drink Starbucks Copycat I was totally won over. MCT oil is flavorless however once it hits your system you will feel like you drank rocket fuel.

I have never tried the Starbucks version of “Purple Drink” or “Pink Drink”. Due to the closest Starbucks is an hour away, I do not do Starbucks often. I do not drink coffee often because it is a trigger for my Rheumatoid Arthritis.  So, I drink a lot of tea. It is for this reason that I try a lot of different teas.

Keto Sweeteners

I do not usually do not gravitate towards sweet drinks like this however the colors really got me thinking about it. When ate a Paleo diet I avoided artificial sweeteners but these day’s the Sugar Free Torani’s do not seem to effect my RA like real sugar does.

Zero Carb Keto Summer Drink. Don't drink your carbs when you are on a keto diet. This Starbucks Copycat Purple Drink does not skimp on flavor!

After seeing Passion Fruit Tea on sale at Albertson’s I looked up popular methods of making this tea and as a result this recipe was born. My favorite color is purple so I had to try this out.

Perfect Keto Summer Drink

This keto summer drink is perfect because it is cool and refreshing. There are plenty of caffeinated options out there but a good fat fueled drink is better than a highly caffeinated drink in my book. The MCT oil gives you a nice energy boost that is sustained for longer with less of a crash after.

I added MCT oil to it for an extra boost of energy and because I am keto, I love the fats!

Mct Oil and Keto

What is MCT oil?

“MCT” stands for “medium chain triglycerides,” a type of fatty acid. MCTs are naturally found in coconut oil, and they have a few unique properties that make them an essential part of your keto fat-burning toolkit. –Source

How does MCT oil taste?

Mct oil is an odorless, flavorless which is great because it is easy to add to drinks this way. You can purchase MCT oil powders that are flavored however I suggest when starting out sticking with the real deal

How do I take MCT oil?

There are many different ways you can take MCT oil, putting it into drinks is probably the easiest. Add it to a tea or coffee for an added boost of energy. It comes in powders, gel capsules and in the liquid form. My favorite MCT oil comes in Gel Capsules for easy packing to and from work with me.

Which MCT oil is the best?

My personal favorite is the c:8 blend from Kiss my Keto. I have tried other brands and this one is the best. It comes in a cool glass bottle with a pump so it does not make a mess unlike other brands. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for and this stuff is the best.

  1. Hiya fargo!!! Can’t wait to try this

    1. Author

      Amazing! I hope you love it! I’m actually located in Beach – on the border of nd and mt.

  2. I’m assuming you used the unsweetened almond/coconut milk, right?

  3. So, if I only have almond milk can I just add some coconut extract?

    1. Author

      That would work or just use the almond milk it’ll probably taste just fine however you will have to adjust the fat macros

  4. Does the oil not try to separate? I don’t want to do bullet proof coffee due to all the caffeine, so I’m looking for alternatives

    1. Author

      You know when I drink this it’s usually with a straw and it is usually a quick drink – if you are worried about the oil separating you could froth the oil with the milk before pouring – check out my bulletproof bengal spice tea it’s caffeine free

  5. What do I ask for in Star bucks for this butterscotch blonde fat bomb? Sorry I don’t drink anything at Star bucks because I don’t like tea or coffee but I would love to try these Keto drinks there. Thank you in advance for this ideas.

    1. Author

      I don’t think you can order a Butterscotch Blondie fat bomb at Starbucks but you can order a “purple drink”. It’s basically a Hibiscus tea without the syrup, sugar free vanilla syrup and heavy whipping cream. I live an hour away from Starbucks so I don’t go there often at all however when I do I usually ask order an Americano with sugar free Cinnamon Dolche syrup and heavy whipping cream or coconut milk of they have it. I hope this answers your question.

  6. Can I make this ahead of time and just pour it over ice at work? I’m trying to find keto friendly snacks & energy boosters for lunch.

    1. Author

      You can make this ahead of time for
      Sure – you might have to blend it again after it sits. I suggest making the tea with the mct oil in it then store it in the fridge. When your ready, blend it together and then add the ice and coconut milk.

  7. Is it called rocket fuel because it gives u energy? Cause I need the energy

    1. Author

      Yea that’s why I call it rocket fuel! I was so surprised at how awesome mct oil made me feel the first time I drank this so I named it Rocket Fuel. I hope you love it.

      1. I just made it and it’s absolutely so tasty!!!!! I’m so excited! I’m waiting for the energy ha but the taste is excellent & I was too impatient to wait to tell you.

          1. Energy!!! Yes! And now I Get the mental clarity! I’m gonna but more MCT for sure!!! Thank u! This changes everything!

  8. Can you premake this and serve later?

    1. Author

      I’ve never made it ahead of time but I think it would be ok. The mct oil might separate out – if you make it and blend it then use a coffee frother when you serve it to re mix it – I bet it would work.

  9. Love to taste this one of these days, Thankyou for giving me an idea about the health benefits that MCT can provide. Gonna go to starbucks later to check this out! 🙂

  10. Awesome article! I’ll definitely try this someday! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Hi! Would it taste the same with coconut oil in place of MCT?

    1. Author

      MCT oil is flavorless and will not solidify when it gets cold. If your making this a hot drink I think it would be totally fine however when added to a cold drink it will solidify and be kinda weird I think.

  12. I’ve been drinking the Passion drink from this recipe. Can’t tell it gives me any boost at all. Do I need to do something else to get there? More MCT??

    1. Author

      Hey, Thanks for trying the recipe! If you do add more MCT oil I would do it slowly if your body is not used to it, MCT oil can cause stomach upset.

  13. Looking forward to trying this! Need to make homemade coconut milk 1st.
    This would also be GREAT with my Raspberry Hibiscus Tea…
    I am like you… Coffee is not in my food plan. There is a mold that grows on coffee beans, and I am VERY allergic to it!
    SO… tea it is & I have a large collection of teas!!!

    PS… would leave to sign up for the notifications but prefer txt. so opted out of e-mail notifications…

  14. Does it have to be vanilla syrup?
    Can I just use vanilla extract?

    1. Author

      I use the syrup to add an extra sweetness to the drink. It’s totally optional. If you use vanilla extract I would start with 1/8 tsp and maybe some stevia to taste. Good luck!

  15. Wow! I think that’s amazing! This is a great read! I learned something new today.

Whats on your mind?
