To make this at home, you’re going to need a few ingredients.

Next ingredient is Acai Powder. It’s a little pricey but it’s super healthy and you don’t have to use much per drink.

The next ingredient is Green Coffee Bean Powder. This is the energy that the refresher gives you. Caffeine without the coffee taste!

After that is Passion Fruit Concentrate. This helps boost the fruity flavor of the drink!

The other ingredients are white grape juice, sugar, and filtered water (bottled water works just fine).
