The SKINNY Piña Colada!

Piña Coladas are a quintessential summer cocktail, but are NOT always a girl’s best friend.  For example an 8-ounce piña colada that gets served up at a poolside bar can pack 640 calories.  That’s a 100 calories more than a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Not exactly a beach-worthy accessory.  So, can you still enjoy a cocktail and have a bikini body? Of course!  Thanks to DonQ’s head mixologiest Esteban Ordoñez.  He has slimmed down the piña colada recipe for an on the rocks and blended version.  The results are just as refreshing and they’re the perfect low-calorie cocktail to celebrate summer!

    Thanks for sharing these recipes. I love to mix my own Pina Coladas rather than using a pre-made mix, they taste so much fresher and are more delicious. I never bothered to count the calories. It’s crazy that they’re typically more calories than a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Yikes! These recipes will be my go-to recipes this summer.
