If You Like Pina Coladas....

Please forgive my absence, have not been spending much time on the computer this past week. With two extra kids in the house and Beren and myself home on vacation, it was all I could do to keep up with the minimal housework and cooking while entertaining the girls and enjoying some summer fun!

We'll be enjoying one last poolside party before heading back to work addition to veggie burgers & dogs (& coconut cake for those who can afford the indulgence!) I'll be whipping up these cool & creamy cocktails courtesy of, once again, Hungry Girl!

HG's Pina Colada Freeze (120 calories!)

1/4 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
1.5 ounces Torani Sugar Free Coconut Syrup
1 ounce light rum
1 tablespoon crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 packet Splenda (or another no-calorie sweetener packet)
5-7 ice cubes OR 3/4 cup crushed ice
Optional: fruit slices for garnish

Put all ingredients in the blender. Blend on high speed until mixed well. Pour into a cute cocktail glass, top with fruit if you like, and sip your way to satisfaction!

Virgin Version - Nix the rum and replace it with a half-ounce of water and an extra half-ounce of the coconut syrup. Your liquorless frozen concoction will weigh in with around 60 calories!

Have a Beauty-Full Day,
