What better way to kick of my long list with a cool Summer drink. I have decided to make Pina Colada(non alcoholic) with freshly made coconut milk and chopped Pineapple.
Coconut Milk in Ayurveda is considered very healthy and according to Wiki, it can cure Ulcers. Pineapple is a good source of Vitamin C and is a good antioxidant.
This goes to Sukham Coolers, hosted by Jigyasa and Prathibha of Pritya Books. The event is started by Siri as Healing Foods.
1 1/2 cup Chopped Pineapple
1/4 cup Coconut Milk (To make Coconut Milk, see below)
1/4 cup fine sugar
1 cup ice
- Blend all the ingredients.
- The juice will have the pineapple pieces. If you do not like it and would like a smoother texture, strain through the sieve.
1 cup of Fresh grated Coconut
1/4 cup Water
Blend the Coconut with a quarter cup water and blend it till it is smooth.
Some of the blenders cannot make it too smooth. In that event, please strain through a fine sieve.
