We have a solution (a genius solution if you ask me!): our green pina colada! Fresh, no sugar, and no additives — simply a delicious drink that will leave you hydrated and refreshed. It just so happens that coconut water is the perfect electrolyte drink and provides our body with nutrients that actually help us better absorb water!

Ingredients

2 cups coconut water

¼ cup coconut milk

¼ avocado

1 –2 cups fresh pineapple

¼ tsp green stevia (or other natural sweetener such as raw honey or pure maple syrup)

Optional for more sweetness:

1 Medjool date or 1 more tbsp natural sweetener of your choice.

Directions

1 Add all ingredients to a food processor. Blend and enjoy!

We lose electrolytes when we sweat, so it is important to replace them, especially after a workout. Here is our favorite pina colada recipe and a few other inspirations for electrolyte replacements so you can stay away from sport drinks that are loaded with sugar and artificial colours. We hope you enjoy our healthful twist on the Pina Colada, and make sure to always increase your intake of electrolytes anytime you are feeling dehydrated or sweating lots!

Other Easy Options to get those Electrolytes In:

1. Fresh watermelon (try with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper!)
2. Unsweetened coconut water
3. Regular or carbonated water with a pinch of Celtic sea salt
