Piña Colada Recovery Shake + Core Hydration Review & Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to review Core Hydration Organic Fruit Infused Water through my partnership with Fit Approach. I received the product, compensation and discount code in exchange for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own!

Hi Ya’ll! Lots of AWESOME stuff in this post, so stick with me! 

So, anyone else love piña colada’s? Like love them? Or getting caught in the rain?! (Sorry, I had too). My mom loves piña colada’s. However, she usually makes them with a mix, which can be overly sweet and blah, right? Well, last week, I had fresh pineapple, full fat coconut cream, limes and shredded coconut. It was also ridiculous warm and beautiful outside. And my samples of Core Hydration Organic arrived, contain 2 bottles of Coconut Colada infused water. I basically HAD to make this recovery shake.

Why recovery shake, you ask? Why not just a fun piña colada smoothie? Well, why NOT a recovery shake? As summer approaches, I don’t know about you, but I want something slightly sweet and refreshing, all the time, especially post workout. Pineapple contains bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Combined with the coconut cream, which also contains healthy fats, you’ve got a tasty anti-inflammatory powerhouse, perfect for post workout.

The protein powder helps repair/build muscle and if it contains BCAA’s, like the brand I used, even better! For this recovery shake, Core Organics Coconut Colada fruit infused water was perfect. It’s organic, vegan, non-gmo and gluten free, containing antioxidants and less than 5 calories per serving! Basically, you are going to want to make this recovery shake after your next big workout.

Want the recipe?! It’s so simple.



  • 1 1/2 cup Coconut Colada Core Organic
  • 1/3 heaping cup FULL FAT Coconut Milk
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Vega Sport)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 Cup Frozen Pineapple
  • Extra ice, if you like a thick smoothie


  1. Mix all ingredients into high speed blender.
  2. Enjoy!

Let’s chat about this fruit infused water really fast. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a bit of a flavored water snob. I’m pretty picky about it, because I’ve not enjoyed alot of the brands I’ve tried. Core Hydration Organic is a GAME. CHANGER. Seriously, every flavor is delicious. I started with the Watermelon Lemonade and drank it so fast I didn’t even get to snap a picture!

He always requests juice, but since most varieties are packed with sugar, and he gets enough sugar as is, I don’t often buy any. I have no qualms about him drinking a bottle, or two, of Core. It’s made with natural ingredients and it’s low on the glycemic index (less than 1 g of sugar!).

I love grabbing a bottle to drink while I’m teaching class. I stay hydrated and love the sweet flavor when I’m sweating! Plus, it curbs my sweet tooth. Most times a sip of something sweet works to cut the craving. This is the perfect option!
