Remember this insanely delicious cocktail from the other night?


Well, I successfully recreated it at home! Wahoo!!

This Skinny Piña Colada has nowhere near the fat and calories of a regular Piña Colada because I used coconut water instead of coconut cream and added just a splash of pineapple juice.

  1. Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.

I have a feeling that this Skinny Piña Colada is going to be my go-to cocktail for the rest of the summer. It’s amazingly light and refreshing, but still packed with flavor. Love it!!



  1. Love the skinny cocktails. I’ll definitely have to make this one. Lately I’ve been into margaritas so have been using Crystal Light’s margarita flavored mix as the base and adding tequila and triple sec. Perfect summer drinks!

  2. This look super tasty- plus I love that it’s the healthified version. Sometimes those fun cocktails get so sugary and to much! Can’t wait to try this 🙂

  3. I Cannot wait to make this for this weekend!! I love coconut water – all I need to find is the Rock coconut Rum….I am wondering if I will find it pretty easily. I will figure it out…either way – it looks delish!

  4. It’s sounds fantastic…. I picked up some pineapple juice & coconut water at the grocery store tonight – already have the vodka at home, can’t wait to mix one up!! 🙂

  5. I’ve been a HUGE fan of the “skinny” margarita for years. Sour mix is normally gross anyway. My mom introduced me to the Skinny Gin and Tonic: use light tonic water, Hendrick’s gin and then flavor with a touch more cucumber, by throwing in a slice. It’s lovely!

  6. I love that you’ve made a “light” cocktail without adding a bunch of creepy artificial sweetener. Keep ’em coming!

  7. This has been my go-to drink this weekend. I love it. I also tried your version and then one with Trop50 pineapple/mango juice and liked that one better. Thanks again for the recipe.

  8. Pina Coladas are my favourite. Thanks for a great recipe. I am bringing this on my camping excursion in a couple of weeks.

    I like to have something I can add rum to or not so that the boys don’t realize I am not drinking half the time 😉

  10. I just made one of these last night…DELISH! I saw some coconut water flavored with pineapple I bet that would be good too 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  13. This is absolutely amazing! Tastes JUST like a piña colada without all the extra calories. Yum!

  14. wouldn’t it be even more healthier/less calories if you used just regular pineapple juice from canned pineapple with out the sugar? anyone tried this? I think I am going to give it a try that way soon.

  16. Have you tried the VitaCoco in the pineapple flavor for this? It has pineapple puree instead of juice, so it may have a little less sugar. =] I drink it like it’s going to disappear from the planet!

    Also, this is the same Jordan who used to write Salt Sweat Sugar, if you remember me at all. I just reappeared in BlogLand and started a new one. But it’s still me – It’s just been few years =] So hi!
