Low Calorie Sparkling Pina Colada Recipe

Low Cal Sparkling Pina Colada Recipe


Everyone has some flavor or scent that whisks their senses away to a different time or a different place.  Maybe the smell of fresh cut grass takes you back to summers as a kid drinking out of water hoses and playing in the sprinkler.  Maybe the smell of cinnamon rolls reminds you of standing shoulder to shoulder with your grandmother baking in the kitchen.  For me the taste and smell of coconut immediately takes me to the beach.  Just that fruity flavor touching my tongue helps me instantly relax and visualize the waves crashing on the sand.

My most favorite coconut concoction is the Piña Colada!  The trouble with traditional Piña Coladas is that they are very high in calories!  So even though the first sip immediately whisks my senses away to the beach, it also immediately goes straight to my waistline.   That’s why I love this recipe I came up with using Vintage Coconut Flavored Sparkling Water.  It’s a zero calorie sparkling water that tastes purely like natural coconut- no artificial flavors and no added colors or dyes.  I’ve come up with a low calorie sparkling Pina Colada recipe that lets me enjoy all the flavors of a Piña Colada without all the fat and calories.  Here’s how you can enjoy one of these perfectly refreshing drinks and hold on to summer as long as you can!

Ingredients & Supplies:

 

Step 1:

Head over to your local Kroger or King Soopers and pick up your pack of Vintage Coconut Sparkling Water and a can of pineapple juice.  I got mine from Kroger.  If you want to see where you can purchase it in your area feel free to use their product locator at www.drinkvintage.com/find-vintage.
