The classic vegan Piña Colada smoothie turned into a gluten-free and sugar-free breakfast drink. Refreshing and rejuvenating.
It has been incredibly hot here in Penang Malaysia where D and I have been renting an apartment for the last month.
I mean I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone reacts to the heat the same way I do.
My body is struuuuuggaling. Whenever I’m outside I seem to instantly start sweating and look disheveled right away. My hair gets in my face, my clothes cling to me, I just get irritable and impatient. It’s too much for me.
Maybe after a while your body starts to adapt, but I’m just forced to believe I’m better suited to colder climates.
To save myself from the heat I need a cool refreshing drink.
Cue this piña colada smoothie. Fresh pineapples, bananas and coconut milk. Blend that right up and you’ll magically feel refreshed and rejuvenated in an instant.
The kind of drink I need daily in the Malaysian heat.
And if you’re having one of those days, feel free to sneak a bit of rum in here too.
Oh yes and I just had to serve this vegan Piña Colada smoothie in a wine glass – what better glass to drink out of I ask?
One of the benefits of being a grown up — drinking out of wine glasses.
A gluten free, sugar free and vegan pina colada smoothie that is bound to rejuvenate you and make you feel refreshed.
