One of my favorite summertime treats is a pina colada.
I may have indulged in a few while on our recent trip to Florida, in fact.
But one of my LEAST favorite things about them is the huge amount of calories.
So as soon as I returned from Florida I decided to see if I could revamp the drink – give it the nummy flavor I loved without the extra calories I hated.
This one, my friends, is pretty darn tasty. So much so that you better watch out – they go down fast! Make it with or without rum – it’s delicious either way.
Start with mangos in your blender – about a cup of frozen organic ones. Then add about 2 cups of frozen pineapples on top. Pour approximately 2 cups of unsweetened coconut milk in.Next, squeeze a fresh lime over your mixture. Last, pour in coconut/chia kefir (about 1/2 cup). Optional – add a healthy handful of spinach. The spinach won’t change the flavor, but it WILL significantly change the color!
If you want the grownup version of this drink, add just over an ounce for every serving (this recipe serves 4 generously) or to taste.
Pour into the glass of your choice and enjoy! Cheers!
