Happy Summer! I try to stick with most of my healthy habits in the summer but sometimes it is sooooo hard! I don’t know about you, but I tend to drink more alcohol in the summer. We get together with friends and family more in the hood, at the pool and at the beach. Plus, a cold drink just seems to taste better in the summer! Of course moderation is important, (and so challenging sometimes!) but the quality of what you are drinking is important too. Don’t get sucked into making frozen drinks with a store bought mix. The ingredients are downright scary and they have loads of added sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Try this simple recipe that uses high quality and super healthy ingredients and tastes fresher and more delicious than any mix!
1 can full-fat coconut milk (I like Native Forest Brand because they use BPA free cans)
2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup honey (preferable local and raw)
2-3 cups ice
6-8 oz. rum
Blend well and serve with umbrellas and lime slices, if desired. Enjoy!
