If you like smoothies, or juices, or heck…an alcoholic beverage or two, you’ll enjoy learning how to make a piña colada healthy – and why you should actually do it yo-self!
But first…cheers to celebration – to cool projects, to meeting your health goals, to birthdays, to folded laundry, to love, to old school 80’s music, and to Rupert Holmes for this song…
Inspired by our goals to stress LESS and celebrate MORE, we made this recipe for us all to enjoy. Join us this weekend by serving up healthy piña colada for your folks.
We are on a mission to show as many people as possible that EATING REAL, whole foods is the best way to clean up your diet and grow healthy bodies. That goes for special indulgences and drinks too!
Piña coladas (Spanish for pineapple + strained) are a fairly simple drink. It’s fresh pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and rum. That’s it. However, most bar and homemade versions use coconut milk loaded with sugar, starches, and preservatives. The processed stuff PLUS alcohol is definitely no formula for feeling awesome.
To keep this family-friendly, we’ve ditched the rum and added a few, naturally sweet and boosting ingredients for you to enjoy. It doesn’t mean you can’t add the rum later ;)
2 cups light coconut milk, (it’s easy to make too!)
2 cups coconut water
2 bananas, frozen*
1 ½ cups pineapple, frozen*
1 tablespoon chia seeds
*If you don’t have frozen fruit, simply add ice cubes (but it may water it down a bit).
- Throw everything in a blender.
- Serve with a fresh slice of pineapple.
- Enjoy and celebrate life.
Kale. All Day. Err Day.
