Piña Colito Recipe

What I’m about to show you is not only the secret to happiness but super healthy for your mind, body, soul and end of vacation.

My sister Safiya and I discovered something incredible this summer: a blender.

And with this blender, and the help of a former bartender, we created the most amazing drink in the world: the Piña Colito. If you haven’t already guessed, it’s basically a mix between two of my favorite alcoholic drinks: Piña Colada and Mojito except that we replaced rum with vodka just ’cause life.

So here’s the most guesstimated version of the Piña Colito cocktail:

Ingredients: Serves 2

-8 mint leaves
-1 ½ cups of water
-1 cup of coconut milk
½ a pineapple (chopped in pieces)
-1 cup of pineapple juice
-1 cup of brown sugar (optional)
½ a lime’s juice
-A pinch of cinnamon powder
-1 cup of vodka (or add another cup of water if you want a virgin cocktail)
-Ice

How-to-make-and-shake-it:

Put everything in the blender except for the ice. Press the button. Stop the blender. Pour into a chilled glass full of ice. DRANK.

Upsides: The virgin Piña Colito is super healthy. You can drink it instead of a meal because it’s pretty filling. You can add greens like spinach or kale, and it may taste better/worse.

Downsides: It’s really filling. Like really really. So have it for dessert or dinner or something.
