Written by: melissa - Jul. 2, 2017
We immediately assume that making healthy alternatives means giving up on flavor. But, we’ve cracked the code and even combined two of our favorite summer drinks in one super-delicious, super-healthy summer detox drink!
The easiest way to make a healthier version of your favorite dish or drink is to make it with fresh, natural ingredients. This recipe is a nutrition-packed alternative to the sugar laden piña coladas and mojitos out there. And believe me, aside from being a healthier alternative, it tastes so much better!
Coconut water is naturally fat and cholesterol free, has more potassium than four bananas, and is rich in electrolytes. This thirst quenching and super hydrating drink is “nature’s sports drink” and is the perfect ingredient to keep you hydrated on the go!
Pineapple juice is naturally sweet, so you won’t need to add any extra sugar. Just be sure to use pure pineapple juice and avoid “juice drinks” which are basically just sugar flavored water. Pineapple juice is rich in vitamin C which is good for immunity and skin health, manganese which is an essential nutrient that fights aging and disease, bromelain that has anti inflammatory properties which can be useful in the treatment of sports injuries, among others!
Limes aside from being rich in vitamin C, limes are beneficial for weight loss, skin care, better digestion, etc. Such a small fruit with huge flavor and benefits!
Mint leaves soothes the stomach and is an anti-inflammatory.
