I love coconut. The flavor, the taste, the versatility. There’s just so much you can do with it! I’ve been craving a delicious coconut flavored smoothie for a while now, so I decided to create one of my summer favorites to remind me that this cold Winter will be over eventually.

This pineapple coconut smoothie recipe reminds me of a summertime pina colada but with way more nutrients! To make this easy recipe you will just need your favorite coconut drink(s) and some fruit. A handful of spinach will help provide added fiber and nutrients as well, so I always throw that into my smoothies.

Coconut water is naturally packed with electrolytes, so it’s perfect when you need a boost of energy. However, I don’t always have coconut water on hand, so I like to mix in a packet of SOS rehydrate. SOS rehydrate is a medically proven healthy hydration drink designed by runners and a doctor and it’s just as effective as an IV drip at combating mild to moderate dehydration. What I love about SOS rehydrate is that it has 3x more electrolytes than the average sports drink with 75% less carbs! It uses the right mix of electrolytes that will help your body maximize it’s ability to get more out of water.

I love exercising, but I notice that sometimes if I exercise and I don’t get enough water and nutrients throughout the day, I get really tired, irritable, and weak. Adding SOS rehydrate to this smoothie gives me that pick-me-up I’m looking for after I exercise. Plus, it tastes delicious! The citrus flavor of the SOS rehydrate really brings this entire smoothie together.

I just bought a Nutri Ninja a couple of weeks ago and I really love it for making smoothies. It even has the power to break down frozen fruit! The banana I used in this smoothie and the pineapples were frozen, so it was nice to see it blend those up with ease.
