Hey everyone! I am back with a delicious but yet nutritions smoothie that everyone in the family can enjoy! It is super silky, and rich and is traditionally consumed with Rum. I thought I would omit the alcohol, and see how yummy I could make this Tropical drink!
It did not take long for me to realize that this drink was going to be simple, awesome, and packed with nutrients. I know all of you you love Pina Coladas, so you really have no excuse not to give this a go! Before we get to the recipe I am just going to tell you all a bit about the two main ingredients in this smoothie. Pineapple, and Coconut!
help prevent colds
help prevent free radical damage
helps strong bones
helps reduce swelling
promotes strong immunity
aids in a healthy digestive system
a great source of fibre
high in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids
packed with calcium, potassium, and magnesium
helps stay hydrated as they have loads of electrolytes
better than milk – my opinion
So not only does this bad boy taste amazing, it is SUPER GOOD FOR YOU – as mentioned before.
it takes less than 5 minutes to make
fuss free and minimal mess in the kitchen
requires a blender and a glass
easily taken on-the-go
and your kids are sure to LOVE IT!
It is also:
You cannot go wrong.
It is the perfect time of year to kick start on drinks like these! Perfect for breakfast, mid day snack or post gym pick-me-up…just add Protein – Andrew used Protein World and I used Protein World Flaxseed in mine to amp it up sometimes!
I hope you all enjoy this simple drink as much as we did. I am off to do some work now though loves, I will be back soon!
Place all ingredients into a blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds – mine looks different because I blended the pineapple on its own, then the rest of their ingredients on their own to create a layered effect.
Pour into a glass, garnish with a wedge of pineapple or mint and serve up ASAP.
