In light of our recent “skinny” cocktail recipe postings, we were asked by Facebook friend Sherri if we could include a recipe for a Skinny Piña Colada. Certainly, we thought, we could find a way to take a bite out of the calories of this high calorie coconut creme and juice based cocktail whose taste takes us right to the islands?
Well, in this recipe, we did decrease the calorie level from 278.5 for one serving of our regular Piña Colada Recipe to 142 calories per serving in the following Skinny Piña Colada! For just a little added kick – add a .5 oz dark rum floater for an additional 32 calories :)
3/4 c. frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk
1 oz coconut rum
.5 oz dark rum floater (optional – add 32 calories)
pineapple and maraschino cherry for garnish
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Add more ice for a thicker consistency, or add a little water to thin. If desired, add a floater. Garnish with pineapple and a cherry.
