In either case you use 'zum Abendessen'
Ich esse Schweinefleisch zum Abendessen.
Ich trinke Saft zum Abendessen.
and people will understand that that you're drinking juice with dinner.
If you're on a diet and want to emphasize the fact the juice is the whole dinner, you could say
Ich trinke Saft als Abendessen.
