Our unusually cool spring has left us daydreaming of walks on the beach. This drink grants a little taste of warm days at the beach, while offering a boost to our immune systems.
There is tremendous nutritional benefit found in coconut water. Some consider it to be “nature’s blood transfusion” because of its abilities to help build the blood. It’s high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, electrolytes and amino acids. Some even claim it helps skin problems when applied topically! You might want to read up on coconut water! I’ll leave a couple of interesting links below to get you started.

Back to the drink! We pour a can of the coconut water, a can of pineapple (or some fresh!), some ice and a tablespoon of Stevia. Blend until you achieve the consistency you prefer. The taste is lighter than the syrupy sweet piña colada. Mmmmm… delicious!
Close your eyes and pretend you’re at the beach.
