"" The Exhausted Mom: Thirsty Thursday ~ Skinny Piña Colada

Thirsty Thursday ~ Skinny Piña Colada

Ok ladies.....the Piña Colada is one of my all time favorite drinks.  It's SOOO full of calories and sinful, that I don't order it unless I'm on vacation....because as we all know, calories don't count on vaca!  

Since I'm on this new kick (at least for the time being) of watching what I put in my body and trying to get in shape, I'm always on the look out for low-cal cocktails.  

I found this awesome one from this awesome blogger Tina at CarrotsNCake.com.  Her blog is full of delicious food that is healthy.  Check it out and give her some love....

This Skinny Piña Colada has nowhere near the fat and calories of a regular Piña Colada because Tina used coconut water instead of coconut cream and added just a splash of pineapple juice.

  1. looks good! pool day with skinny pina coladas next weekend?!

  2. Yum. Thanks for this. I'm going to try it (haven't had a Pina Colada in years, mainly because of the calories!)

  3. Yum! Looking forward to trying this recipe!

  4. I made a pitcher of this over the weekend, along with grilled fajitas and guacamole... Cocktail was AMAZING!

    I used pineapple nectar instead of juice- didn't want the added sugar and other chemical additives. Check out the international foods section of your grocery store before buying expensive coconut water in the natural foods section.

    Cans of coconut water (Goya brand) were $1.19/can in the mexican/hispanic section versus the $3.29/bottle version in the natural foods section. I bought 3 cans- saved myself $6.30!!

    This will be my new summer staple, as far as cocktails are concerned.
