Dr. Juice

Dr. Juice is a super-fun mocktail that's slightly pink and garnished with a straw and a Swedish fish.

It was Pabu’s birthday! Aside from Pabu’s Birthday Boy cocktail, the humans in the crowd were also thirsty for some festive, fun drinks.

Enter Dr. Juice, the mocktail I made for Max and his friend Finn, who baked Pabu’s birthday cake together.

I wanted their mocktail to look and taste fun. My idea was to go more or less for a creamsicle flavor. It’s a bit hard to tell from this photo, because the sun was going down and kitchen lights were casting a yellowish glow on everything, but this drink is slightly pink. Add the fun straws, and a garnish of Swedish fish, and we had a hit.

The boys kept trying to guess what was in the drink. Everything from coconut (no) to raspberry (no). Stevia (no). Fruit (yes). Sugar (probably, but none that I added).

Max called it one of my very best.


  • Vanilla protein shake (16 oz, or 1 1/2 cartons)

  • Juice from 2 large navel oranges

  • 3 Tbsp grenadine

  • Garnish: Swedish fish gummy candy


  • Shake protein shake and orange juice together; add grenadine and shake again until satisfied.
  • Pour and garnish with straw and candy.
  • Say Happy Birthday to Pabu and enjoy as a pack!
