Pina Colada Smoothie

Everybody loves a good summer time cocktail, however most cocktails are full of sugar and empty calories while providing little nutrition. That is why I created this fabulous Pina Colada Smoothie recipe. It has all the flavour of one of my all-time favourite cocktails, but with no added sugar and tons of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes from all the fruits and coconut water. The ground flax seeds add a good dose of Omega 3 essential fatty acids  and beneficial plant fibres which will help to keep your gut and immune system healthy
