Skinny Pina Coladas

     Hello!  What would summer be without a few cocktails on the deck with my husband?  Last summer our drink of choice was the Dirty Banana (yum!), this summer it's the Skinny Pina Colada.  And by "skinny" I mean somewhat low-cal and low fat, so there's very little guilt associated with drinking this adult beverage.  While it doesn't have the creamy consistency of a traditional pina colada it certainly tastes like one!
     This recipe comes from Carrots 'n' Cake (here).  Tina's recipe is spot on so I didn't change a thing!  Coconut water can be found in the bottled water isle of your grocery store and the rum should be easy to find at any well stocked liquor store.

Skinny Pina Colada (serves 1)
  • 2 oz Bacardi Rock Coconut Rum
  • 5 oz coconut water
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
1.  Combine all ingredients and ice in shaker and shake.  Strain into glass and garnish with pineapple or cherry, if desired.  Enjoy!
