It is very interesting that vanilla actually comes from an orchid plant. It is even possible to grow it yourself, if you have the right conditions. That would be, warm and humid. It is a unique plant, in that it can actually draw nutrients from the air. Check out this site for growing instructions.
The Nutri Colada with David Wolfe
Nutri Colada Ingredients
- Pineapple chunks, about 1 cup
- Coconut powder, or dried coconut with a tad of coconut oil
- Coconut water, enough to fill the nutri bullet to the fill line.
- Vanilla powder, 1/4 teaspoon
- Ice cubes
- Liquid Stevia, 1 squirt
- Pinch of sea salt
Put all the ingredients in the nutri-bullet to the fill line, or in a blender. Blend it up good and enjoy. Makes a great festive drink.
Just be sure to check the quality of the vanilla powder. Some types have added ingredients, which may or may not be good. If you can’t find vanilla powder, you could use vanilla extract, again check the quality before you buy. Be sure to use only a small about of vanilla, it is super flavorful and can overpower the drink.
If you enjoy an occasional cocktail, you could add a bit of rum for an awesome and much healthier version of the pina colada!
