Non-alcoholic Pineapple Pina colada – Vegan (2 Ingredients)

Pina Colada1

About:

The pina-colada is a cocktail made with rum, cream of coconut and pineapple. Here I have replaced cream of coconut with fresh coconut water and used fresh pineapple. It can be personalised as per the taste.

This is a delightfully refreshing summer drink delicious way to hydrate; Coconut water prevents dehydration.

Health Benefits:

Coconut water naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolyte. Low in calories, naturally fat- and cholestrol free and super hydrating – these are just a few of the many benefits ascribed to America’s latest health craze: coconut water.

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 5mins

Ingredients:

  • Coconut water-2cups
  • Fresh Pineapple chunks-1/2cup
  • Blue food colour (optional)

Procedure:

  • Blend pineapple chunks until smooth.

  • Strain into a glass filled ice, garnish with pineapple and serve.

Note:

  • Coconut water preferably fresh or if not handy canned can be used
  • You can even replace pineapple chunks with pineapple juice
  • Blue colour used adds refreshing look to the drink, which is completely optional
  • Coconut bits are visible in the drink can be blended if required
