Does our current summer heat wave have you dreaming of a trip to your favorite beach to escape the scorching temperatures? Well, if you can’t get away right now, no worries. We have a new recipe that creates a relaxing tropical vibe! With one sip of our new Pina Colada Flavored Mocktail, you’ll be transported straight to a comfy beach chair beneath the cool shade of swaying palm trees! And not only is it a refreshing treat, but it’s also loaded with some serious health benefits! Keep reading to learn more about our version of the iconic Puerto Rican classic!
Pineapple: This recipe boasts a double shot of this delectable tropical fruit; frozen pineapple chunks and pineapple juice! Naturally juicy and sweet, pineapples are rich in vitamin C, an essential ingredient in immune system support and skin-loving collagen production. Pineapples also contain additional vitamins and minerals and the powerful enzyme bromelain, known for its anti-inflammatory properties that aid sinusitis, arthritis, and digestive issues.
Coconut Cream: Pina Coladas are famous for their luscious and creamy consistency. And our version doesn’t disappoint! Surprisingly, coconut cream is a great non-dairy source of protein, antioxidants, and vital minerals (including potassium and magnesium).
With the addition of coconut cream (not to be confused or interchanged with cream of coconut!), the result is a flavorful and velvety smooth rendition that just screams “island time”!
Aloe Vera Juice: Didn’t see that one coming, did you? Aloe juice might not be the first thing that comes to mind for a mocktail recipe, but trust us, it’s a game-changer. Aloe vera is well-known for its healing and cooling properties for the skin, but it’s also a nutritional powerhouse when consumed internally.
Lily’s organic aloe juice is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B12 and minerals like calcium and magnesium. With over 200 biologically active compounds, it supports digestive health, boosts immunity, increases bioavailability, and reduces toxins.
