Tropical drink in a pineapple
0

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: “Is the beautiful sunset evoking images of an exotic tropical getaway? Then make your time near the pool or at the beach even better with a refreshing drink. Don’t be shy to add tropical fruit such as pineapple, which is loaded with vitamins. To heighten the mood even more, serve this exotic drink in a hollowed-out pineapple. I love adding vegetables to my drinks to add freshness while reducing the energy density (i.e. the number of calories per gram of food consumed). With this drink, say goodbye to your thirst on those hot summer days. Have a great summer, everyone!”
