Cool off this summer with this crisp refreshing drink! Rather then having the same smoothie for breakfast, try this watermelon strawberry colada for a change!
This colada is so simple to make! You just might find yourself whipping them up everyday, and honestly I wouldn’t blame you if you did! The blend of the watermelon, strawberries and limes creates a refreshing fruity infusion in your mouth that is to die for!
Not your ordinary breakfast colada!
So you might be thinking, Alethea how could you possibly have a colada for breakfast?! The truth is, sometimes I want something light first thing in the morning. I usually end up having a larger lunch later in the day!
I get bored with my traditional breakfast routine of smoothies, smoothie bowls, pancakes ect. It is so hot out, that at times I do not wake up with a huge appetite. If you can relate this is the perfect recipe for you.
Cocktail or Mocktail?
Another perfect way to enjoy this colada might be for a brunch or bbq/party! It is so pretty, I think your guest would be pretty impressed with you mixology skills!
To jazz things up, you could make a great cocktail with this by adding a little coconut rum. I am no cocktail expert, but to me that sounds delicious.
This drink is so versatile so feel free to enjoy it how you like! If you decide to make this I’d love to hear about it! Tag your recreations on instagram using #deliciouslyalethea I’d love to see them! Don’t forget to rate and share!
Peace, Happiness & Love
