Piña Colada Smoothie

Not all of us can live close to tropical beaches with tall palm trees and cool breezes. Instead, many of us reside in concrete jungles, just outside the city, and live lives revolving around all things grey, marble and high rise. In times like these you play ocean sounds from your Macbook while lying in your bed covered in flora prints and you sip a Piña Colada smoothie – because this is the closest thing you can get to paradise on a Monday night when you need to be up at 6.30am the next day to get back to business.
