Quick Recipe: Nada Colada Shake

During the dog days of summer, nothing hits the spot quite like a creamy, ice-cold piña colada. Our “mocktail” version has all the citrusy goodness your taste buds crave without the empty calories your waistline fears.

Check the label to be sure you’re using 100% fruit juice. Juice “cocktails” often have more added sugar than a candy bar! To add more fiber to your shake, you can even make your own juice by blending slices of pineapple and orange with some water.

  • water

    – ½ cup

  • pineapple-orange juice

    – ½ cup
