Monday the 10th July is officially National Pina Colada Day - what a start to the week! 

To celebrate, SodaStream has teamed with Lizzie King (Lizzie Loves Healthy Family Food) to create a better-for you sparkling twist on the cult classic.  

Traditionally the sweet rum-based cocktail is packed with sugary ingredients but Lizzie has created a unique version that is delicious, lower in sugar and rubbish-free. Also, being sparkling water based, and mixed with fresh pineapple it's hydrating. 

With summer officially here, ensuring the kids are fully hydrated needs to be a top priority, yet 72% of Brits are still consuming less than the recommended daily amount of two litres of water. Instead, often turning to sugar and additive laden shop bought drinks, for adults and children.
Healthy hydration doesn’t have to be boring, and we’ve been working with an influential healthier eating expert, Lizzie King (Lizzie Loves Healthy Family Food), to create a range of delicious additive, refined sugar, better for you hydrating mocktails - and cocktails for mums & dads, for the whole family this summer. By being sparkling water based, and mixed with fresh fruits, Lizzie’s recipes offer something for everyone, with hydration at the heart.
SodaStream recently polled 2,500 people and found that lemon topped the list of the nation's favourite fruit to add to water, with a third of the votes (33%), closely followed by strawberry (27%) and lime (26%). It’s time the nation got a little more creative!

SodaStream Pina Colada 
100g fresh pineapple in chunks
3 ice cubes
50 ml coconut milk (from a tin)
½ a lime juiced
50 ml rum

Place the ice cubes and pineapple chunks in a high speed blender and blitz until you have a liquid. Add the coconut milk and lime juice and whizz together.
Place another couple of ice cubes into a tall cocktail glass.
Add the rum to the bottom of the glass, pour over the pineapple mixture and top with sparkling water. Stir together gently with a swizzle stick and serve with a slice of lime on the edge of the glass.
