Pina Colada Juice

Take me to a tropical island where the sun is shining, the waves are crashing, and the wind is blowing in through my hair.  Close your eyes.  Are you there?

I hope you’re holding THIS pina colada juice in your hand.  This juice is sweet and refreshing, yet not too sugary.  The pineapple adds just the right amount of tart and the coconut water and celery keep the acidity and sugar balanced and pleasant.  This juice has extraordinary hydrating properties and electrolyte replenishment.  Don’t have a juicer?  You can try making this as a smoothie instead!
