Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz Pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp Lite 85 vanilla yogurt

What’s not to like about the Piña Colada? Over the years, this sweet and refreshing frozen treat has proven to be an able, if not stalwart companion to Uncommon Caribbean on many a steamy day of beach fun in San Juan. Yeah, it’s warm and you have to drink ‘em fast, but you’re on vacation in Puerto Rico! No problem, right?

Wrong. The typical Piña Colada is loaded with so many calories that a day spent throwing back a few of these could ensure that you’re not allowed to fly back home.

Solution: blend the ingredients listed here for a great lo-cal take on our favorite traditionally fatty frozen friend. At only 120 calories, this “diet” Piña Colada is not only better for you, but it will also help to keep the Beaches of Puerto Rico beautiful!

Serves 1.

¡Salud!
