    Peach Pina Colada {Paleo, Dairy-Free}

    Peach Pina Colada

    Imagine a hot, sunny beach day in southern California. It was July 4th and my friend and I were planning to spend the day sipping away on cool drinks by the ocean and getting a tan.

    We discovered a bottle of rum and frozen fruit in the freezer and I, being the self-proclaimed Smoothie Queen, decided I would concoct a Peach Pina Colada Rum Smoothie of sorts…and it turned out to be a really good idea. This drink is delicious and refreshing!

    This drink is good for you because full of antioxidants from fruit and lauric acid* from coconut. It’s also free of common food allergens.

    Enjoy! Let me know what you think of it in the comments below…

    Peach Pina Colada

    Serves 2
    Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

    Ingredients:
    2 cups coconut milk (light or full fat depending on your preference)**
    4 large ice cubes (about 1 cup)
    1 banana (frozen)
    1 cup sliced peaches (frozen or fresh)
    1 dropper-full of liquid stevia extract, or honey, to taste
    Optional:
    4fl. oz of organic rum – more or less to your liking

    To make things easier, you can just use 2 cups of frozen tropical fruit mix from the supermarket instead of the frozen bananas and peaches.

    Directions:
    1. Add all ingredients to your blender. Use the ice crush setting until ice and fruit is well-broken down. Then “puree” or “blend” until very smooth. Add up to 1 cup of additional milk or water to reach desired consistency.
    2. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator (for up to 30 minutes) or freezer (for up to 15-20 minutes).

    *According to mercola.com, “Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-protozoa properties.”
    **I don’t buy Thai Kitchen coconut milk anymore because they are owned by McCormick who recently spent $400K opposing GMO Labeling laws in CA and Oregon according to the OCA.

     

    Enjoy! And share the love…
