You are going to love this Piña Colada Agua Fresca! All you need is 5 minutes and 4 ingredients, and this refreshing drink will be ready to enjoy!
I’m trying to think about how I came up with this Piña Colada Agua Fresca, but for the life of me I can’t remember. I wish I could tell you a story about some exotic trip we took to some beautiful island in the Caribbean, where we drank these all day long… but I can’t, since the last time I did that was during my honeymoon, back in… well, a very long time ago. And believe me my memory does not travel that far.
Honestly, I think this recipe, like many of the ones you see on this blog, just “came” to me. And no, I’m not some kind of “recipe whisperer” or have any special talent. But these ideas just pop into my head, often at the most inconvenient times (i.e while taking my sister’s cycling class or while I’m in bed trying to fall asleep… i.e whenever it is impossible for me write them down!).
My entire family is somewhat obsessed with coconut water. I started drinking it during my workouts to stay hydrated and keep my blood sugar up. Then my husband started doing the same, and soon after both of my kids joined in. Beats any sugary, artificially colored drinks out there, that’s for sure! But I thought it would be fun to spunk it up a little, especially now that summer is right around the corner.
I’ve always loved the coconut-pineapple combination. With a little hint of lime and a touch of agave (which you can substitute with your favorite sweetener or omit all together by the way), this drink is super refreshing and the perfect thirst quencher to keep you energized this summer.
Hope you enjoy it!
- Puree pineapple in the blender until smooth. Add coconut water, lime juice and agave and serve cold
