Half the calories… and just as good!
Every time I go on a beach vacation I order a PiñaColada – and every time I feel like I ate a big glass of sugar. Delicious, but was it worth it? Turns out, probably not. The average Piña Colada has between 300 and 800 calories! That’s why I set out to create one that is just as delicious but with a fraction of the calories. I am not kidding when I say this is a DELICIOUS PINA COLADA. It doesn’t taste like you’re sacrificing a thing! Here’s what you need: (This recipe serves at least four… below the recipe is a single serving breakdown that shows you how many calories you get for one serving.)
8 ounces Coconut Rum (We used Captain Morgan’s Parrot Pay )
8 ounces Pineapple Juice (We used Dole)
8 ounces Coconut Milk (We used Silk) This is where you’re REALLY saving calories. Your usual Pina Colada uses Coconut cream – which is about 130 calories for just one ounce! Coconut Milk is about 10 calories for one ounce, and you won’t notice a difference!)
6 cups of ice.
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth, and serve in a tall glass with the garnishes of your choice… cherries, pineapple slices, a spice of coconut… get creative! Enjoy this guilt free, delicious take on a tropical classic! Now… below is the breakdown of the calories per glass: For more recipes, follow @BrianBalthazar on twitter!
