Raspberry watermelon refresher! Make my healthy and easy raspberry watermelon refresher recipe right at home. You can make this easy Dunkin' copycat refresher right in your blender with just green tea, fruit, and honey!
I love re making dunkin refreshers at home, but with much better ingredients. Since you guys loved my strawberry dragon fruit refresher, and mango pineapple refresher so much, I just had to do a copycat of the raspberry watermelon refresher before summer was over!
I wanted to recreate this delicious flavor with a bit less sugar at home so I hope you like it as much as I did!
WHAT IS THE RASPBERRY WATERMELON REFRESHER FROM DUNKIN?
The Dunkin' raspberry watermelon refresher is made with iced green tea, a vitamin and mineral blend, and flavored fruit concentrate. This dunkin refresher is created with summer watermelon in mind and is a fun drink!
In my opinion, the dunkin drinks have a kind of chemical taste which is why I love making them at home instead.
WHAT ARE DUNKIN REFRESHERS MADE OUT OF?
Over the past couple of years, Dunkin has released different refresher flavors like peach, strawberry, passion fruit, blueberry, and more. The base of most dunkin' refresher recipes are a combination of green tea or lemonade, flavored fruit concentrate, vitamins and minerals.

- ½ cup fresh raspberries
- 2 cups cold brewed green tea
- 1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)

HOW DO YOU MAKE A DUNKIN REFRESHER AT HOME
STEP 1 BREW ICED GREEN TEA
First, I made cold brew green tea overnight. I used 4 green tea bags in 4 cups of room temperature water and then refrigerated it overnight. You can use either decaf or regular green tea!
In a time pinch, use store bought already brewed green tea, or brew hot green tea and let it cool to room temperature.
STEP 2 BLEND
In your blender add 2 cups of green tea, ½ cup watermelon, ½ cup raspberries, and 1-2 tablespoons honey or agave if using.
If you are making a creamy coconut milk raspberry watermelon refresher add ¼-½ cup coconut milk to your blender too.
Blend until the fruit is pureed into the tea.
STEP 3 POUR
Fill a large glass with ice cubes. Pour the refresher over the ice.
What kind of coconut milk do I use to make a creamy refresher?
I buy a carton of coconut milk found in the refrigerator section. There's no need to use the can of full fat coconut milk in this recipe. I tried it will full fat coconut milk and it did not blend into a creamy tea and little chunks of coconut milk were floating in my drink.
Should I use fresh or frozen fruit?
I used fresh fruit in my refresher. But if you use frozen fruit this would make a delicious watermelon raspberry slushy refresher.
Should I use decaf or regular green tea in a refresher?
I used decaf because I wanted an afternoon drink without caffeine! But, if you want an energizing refresher, use regular green tea that contains caffeine.
