I told you guys that my husband and I have been having a competition to see who can be the healthiest person ever, right? Surprisingly I am pretty good at this game for most of the day. I work out first thing in the morning, take the dogs/kids for a run, eat well all day… and then find myself in the Taco Bell drive-thru at 10 pm.
That really happened the other night. And then I went home and parked myself in front of Dance Moms while I stuffed my face with nachos bellgrande and guzzled (not diet) Mountain Dew.
I’m trying to change my ways though so I wanted to make a skinny drink for Thirsty Thursday this week. Nicole and I decided on doing frozen drinks this week and I’ve been on a real coconut kick so you know I had to make a pina colada. This drink comes to 148 calories which is half the calories that you’d get in one of the frozen pouch drinks or a restaurant pina colada. Which means you can have 2 of them! Duh.
(I think this was just sweet enough, but if you need a little added sweetness, you can add a few drops of a liquid, no-calorie sweetener to the blender.)
Nicole made strawberry daiquiris! One of my all-time favorites!
- 1 1/2 ounces coconut rum
- 1/4 cup light coconut milk
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup ice
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve immediately.
