Sip the Island Vibes with Our Non-Alcoholic Shot Recipe

Updated: Jan 17

You put the Lime in the coconut - then add some pineapple and Peppermint - and drink them all up! it just me who finds me clever? Hahaha.

This month's recipe serves one, but you can easily turn it into a full-on mocktail if you want by increasing the quantities and blending with ice. Why, yes, I DO like piña coladas! Just be sure to enjoy it without a straw (or, use a stainless steel or paper one). Noooo plastic with essential oils, mmm'kay?

The breezy part of this recipe comes from the Peppermint Vitality essential oil, which provides a cooling sensation, stimulates the mind, clears the head of occasional discomforts and tension, and is great for digestion and balancing appetite. With the flavors of summer like pineapple, coconut, and a splash of lime, it can become an easy summer staple.

Let's Talk Coconut Milk

Did you know that coconut milk has some pretty cool health benefits? It can lower your cholesterol levels, help prevent heart attacks or a stroke, and improve your blood pressure. Now, there are a bunch of different kinds out there. To get the best health benefits, look for the purest coconut milk you can; something organic with no added sugars or sweeteners (natural or otherwise), and no preservatives. Really, I recommend you pass on anything with added ingredients of any kind, like juices and colors.

Cold-pressured coconut milk means it's only been lightly heated and processed to remove certain bacteria and yet it hasn’t been exposed to such high heat through pasteurization that vitamins and minerals have been depleted. Look for the ingredients to say 100 percent coconut milk...and maybe coconut water. If guar gum has been added, that's okay; it's natural and added to stabilize the texture.

If you buy the canned version, avoid cans made with the chemical called BPA, which is found in some aluminum cans and has the potential to leach into foods (especially foods high in acid or fat, like coconut milk). Some studies link BPA to behavioral problems, among other health concerns.

Now, grab yourself the ingredients and whip up this Island Breeze healthy mocktail shot and imagine relaxing on the beach as you drink to your health.
