Are Dunkin’ Refreshers Considered Healthy?
Refreshers do contain some healthy ingredients such as green tea and added vitamins. If you go for the Coconut milk based refresher, you’re also getting the added benefits of coconut milk, which is a fantastic hydrator and contains a lot of great minerals.
However, I would not consider Refreshers to be exactly healthy since they do contain high sugar content. They could be considered a healthier option, but not entirely healthy and guilt-free, that’s for sure.
Are Dunkin’ Refreshers Vegan?
They are definitely vegan as they contain no dairy or animal products. The only milk they are offered with is coconut milk, they’re never made with any other type of milk.
