When the weather warms up and you are relaxing in the sun reach for this lighter Pina Colada recipe made with a combination of coconut water and coconut milk to get that tropical flavor without the extra calories. –Jump to Recipe
You work hard at making healthier eating choices. Why should your cocktails be any different? Blender drinks are notorious for being calorie laden concoctions. They are typically the kind of tropical drinks you sip on vacation when healthy choices are the last thing on your mind! Luckily this lighter Pina Colada recipe is just what you need when you want a mini-vacay at home. Without the sugary guilt.
Lighter Pina Colada Recipe
Unlike a traditional Pina Colada which uses coconut cream, this lighter version has a combination of coconut water and coconut milk to get that tropical flavor without the extra calories. You can also use coconut water with pineapple for a little extra fruitiness. This recipe is great for parties too. You can pre-measure and freeze your ingredients a day or two ahead of time. That way guests can make drinks as needed. This also helps keep everything fresh and frosty. Not to mention frees you up to relax as opposed to playing bartender for the day!
