Healthy Green Piña Colada

Healthy Green Piña Colada

I absolutely love Piña Coladas. They remind me of Mexico, beaches, and well, rum. But you can’t scoff a cocktail before work, so this is a recipe to set you on a healthy course for the day and can be made in less than 5 minutes. My secret ingredient in the healthy shake arsenal?

Soft silken tofu. Easily purchased from most supermarkets and Asian shops, this flavour neutral product adds a glossy silkiness to your drink and amps up the protein. This counteracts the acidity of pineapple and gives the drink a lovely mouth feel, so you get the health benefits of a green smoothie with a much creamier, indulgent texture.
