Pine Lime Slice Smoothie
I love the taste of coconut
though I know a few people who just don’t. So if you want to benefit from the impressive mineral profile and hydration from coconut water – without the taste, then try it in this delicious rehydration drink (or mixer). The pineapple is very anti-inflammatory and supports digestion. It is also a very rich source of Vitamin C along with the lime.
Most of all, it is refreshing and delicious!
