Pink Buko Salad Drink Recipe

This colorful cup is the buko salad you can drink.

What makes this colorful drink so special are the ingredients that make it turn a pretty pink that’s totally appetizing.

This has all the delicious fresh buko or coconut strands you normally would find in a buko salad, but you will also find that it has lychees, fruit cocktail, and the distinctive red nata de coco or coconut jelly that makes the entire drink turn that delightful baby pink hue. 

To bring it all together, coconut milk and condensed milk makes it sweet, creamy, and delicious. You’ll love this served ice cold.
