Cocoa Pina Colada Smoothie

written by Head Health Nutter August 28, 2010

This weekend is wonderfully warm in Toronto and I’ve got a hankerin’ for a healthy pina colada. If your looking for a nutritious spin on a yummy tropical cocktail, try this smoothie on for size!

Who doesn’t love pineapple and coconut all blended up into a delicious meal you can drink?

This smoothie was inspired by Bindu Grandhi’s last two guest posts about how to eat to beat the heat and theĀ health benefits of coconut water.

I added cocoa powder, thinking of how tasty Mounds bars are, and I thought it turned out great! But if you’re iffy, try this smoothie recipe without the chocolate first, then try experimenting.
