Who knew today was National Piña Colada day? I’m well into my cocktails, however, it is not totally acceptable to have them any time, everywhere… so…
Let’s say I was happy Oykos launched this little taste of the tropics, the Piña Coco Paradise, a deliciously indulgent Oykos silky Greek yoghurt with a flavoursome layer of pineapples and coconut at the bottom, that gives you a nice reminder of our not-working-hours-friendly Piña Colada.
The official drink of Puerto Rico is also (really) the UK’s fave cocktail (according to a 2015 survey) and it’s dead easy to make: 50ml rum, 25ml coconut milk and 200ml pineapple juice.
Shake vigourously for that creamy smooth texture and voila. Cherries and pineapple wedge for decor optional (but highly recommended) but umbrellas are almost compulsory!
Now, I arrived from holidays a few hours ago and have to say it kept that beach vibe going for a bit longer… plus I do love a yoghurt with a layer of fruit (and I’ll say again, I love coconuts!).
The yoghurt itself is lush! The chunks of fruit are a delightful surprise but do not spoil the creaminess of the yoghurt. And it is full of flavour. Yum.
And the best thing? Oykos comes in more than 10 flavours and costs only £2.39 for 4 and you can get it from major retailers nationwide (including Tesco, Ocado, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s).
Also, at the moment there is a great promo going on. By buying an Oykos multipack, you can enter a competition to win a fabulous island escape. It’s a 3-day luxurious Greek getaway, all inclusive, with spa treatments and hunky helpers.
And I assume all Oykos you can eat?! Peter Andre is also included! Head to oykos.co.uk/islandescape for more info.
