Do you like Pina Coladas?

This tropical creamy coconutty pina colada recipe is one for the romantics and those dreaming of tropical holidays. One sip and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a beachfront paradise.

To create the thick and creamy texture this pina colada recipe calls for, we recommend using frozen pineapple. It's simple to make, just buy a fresh pineapple, cut and store in the freezer so it's ready to go whenever the mood strikes.

The addition of coconut yoghurt here not only enhances the flavour but also contributes to the creamy consistency. It’s an absolute essential. We recommend serving your pina colada with additional coconut yoghurt and a sprinkle of shredded coconut (no such thing as too much coconut, right?).

If you love this drink as much as we do and want to enjoy it alcohol-free, simply omit the rum and enjoy this tropical delight any time of the day!

Nexba Coconut and Pineapple Tepaché, one of our newest drinks, is perfect for this pina colada recipe.

Nexba Tepaché is a Mexican inspired flavour fiesta made from fermented pineapples. Like all the drinks in our range, it contains no sugar or artificial additives - it's all natural, delicious goodness.

The pineapple provides a delicious sweet taste that also satisfies your sugar cravings (without the sugar)… it’s almost too good to be true!

Nexba Tepaché is also vegan-friendly and bursting with live probiotics (500 million per bottle to be precise).

Probiotic health benefits

There’s a lot of talk about probiotics and their vast health benefits, particularly in relation to gut health. With gut health implicating virtually all other systems of the body, from brain health, digestion and metabolism to the appearance of our skin, it is no wonder that the gut has become such a trending topic. There are so many different types of probiotics in the form of both supplements and food/drinks. 

In case you’re not familiar with probiotics: probiotics are live bacteria and yeast that promote a healthy gut flora. Our gut is made up of a combination of both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria. Taking probiotic supplements or consuming probiotic-rich food/drinks supports our bodies’ production of good bacteria.

Probiotics are often found in the form of dietary supplements, however there are also a number of foods that are rich in probiotics, including:

Can you spot a theme here? They’re all fermented foods.

That's where tepaché comes into the picture, it's made from fermented pineapples. If you want to learn more about probiotics, what they are and why they’re so beneficial, you can read our blog Why take Probiotics?.

Pineapple health benefits

Fun fact! Pineapples and pineapple juice may help to relieve coughing. Try it next time you’re feeling a little under the weather!

This is most likely due to the exceptionally high vitamin C content as well as anti-inflammatory effects of the enzyme, bromelain.

On top of that, pineapples are loaded with antioxidants that support your body in fighting disease and illness. Some studies even suggest that pineapple can speed up recovery time after surgery or intense exercise. So yep, there’s plenty of health benefits associated with pineapples!
