Avocado Pina Coladas 🥑🍍🍹
Creamy Frosty Icey Cold Pina Coladas are a Summertime must-make!
As I mentioned last week, I’m personally cutting back on alcohol this summer because I have some big fitness goals that will greatly benefit from waking up each and every morning with lots of energy and a clear mind. I’m sharing lots of fun “mocktail” recipes instead because icy cold fruity drinks enjoyed with family and friends are just a favorite part of Summertime that we don’t need to skip out on!

Avocado isn’t a typical ingredient in pina coladas, but it makes for a much creamier result. 10/10 I definitely recommend trying this!
Although fresh pineapple is available year-round in most of the US, this island fruit hits its peak from March through July.
Besides being completely DELICIOUS, fresh Pineapple is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds, such as enzymes that can help with digestion, fight inflammation and disease so drink up & eat up!
Alternatively, you may use about 4 cups of frozen pineapple purchased in the freezer section at the grocer so that you can make these right away.
