#DETOXJANUARY (Pineapple & Coconut Detox Drink)

If you’re still going strong this detox January or you’re looking to get back on track because you’ve slacked a little,this recipe is designed especially for you! Pineapple and coconut is one of my favourite juice combinations, the taste of these two beautiful fruits reminds me of being on a sun lounger, in a bikini and floppy hat overlooking the Caribbean sea, (A girl can dream! *sigh*) So anyway, this detox drink includes fresh pineapples mint, coconut water and sparkling water. I added mint and sparkling water because it gives the drink an extra kick to it, you’ll love it trust me! Read more for the recipe:

“I love fresh fruit and vegetables. I’m not a strict dieter. I don’t think that anything in life should be so regimented that you’re not having fun or can’t enjoy like everybody else. Just know that fresh food is always going to be better for you.” – Carrie Ann Baba

Leaves you feeling fresh doesn’t it?  Enjoy! I sure did.
