Remember this insanely delicious cocktail from the other night?
Well, I successfully recreated it at home! Wahoo!!
This Skinny PiÃ±a Colada has nowhere near the fat and calories of a regular PiÃ±a Colada because I used coconut water instead of coconut cream and added just a splash of pineapple juice.
Skinny PiÃ±a Colada
- 2 oz Barcardi Rock Coconut Rum
- 5 oz coconut water
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Shake and strain into a glass filled with ice.
- Garnish with a slice of pineapple and/or a Maraschino cherry (optional).
- Drink and enjoy!

I have a feeling that this Skinny PiÃ±a 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!!
Bacardi coconut rum- mmmm <3
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!
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 🙂
I’ve literally been wanting one of these since you posted it at the restaurant. Can’t wait!! Anything that makes a cocktail a little less dehydrating= AWESOME!
I was thinking about how refreshing that looked when you posted that picture a few days ago!
This just gave me an idea that could turn out to be REALLY awesome. I am so excited to experiment. 🙂 Looks delish!
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!
This looks fabulous! If I wasn’t pregnant I would be all over that cocktail.
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!! 🙂
And your hydrating while dehydrating! Well that’s better than the alternative!
Making these this weekend, yum!
I will definitely be recreating this one at home too. So good!!
You could call it a Skinny Tina Colada? 😉
Ok this is a great name!
Yummy! great idea using the coconut water
Yum! I love pina colada 🙂
Awesome! I love that this is so light and refreshing. I love real pina coladas too, but they put me into a (drunken) sugar coma! 😛
Hoooorayyyyy for the recipe!!
This is honestly the only thing I’m interested in having poolside, mmm. Since I’ve artfully mastered the skinny girl margarita making at home, this is clearly the next step in my life.
This looks so yummy! I’ll have to try it as soon as I get home from work today!
That looks SPECTACULAR! And you posted this just in time for a beach vacation to the Outer Banks for me. I can see myself sipping a few of these gazing out to the ocean next week, for sure 🙂
Can’t wait to try this!
I think you just changed my life 🙂
What a great idea! Perfect for the summer and even while drinking one at home you totally feel like your ona vacation!
um, it’s 10am here, but I want one already!!
I was just trying to remember which blog I saw this on because I’m going to the beach tomorrow. Thanks for posting I will definitely be making this!
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!
I NEED to make this. Very soon. I love, love, love pina coladas!
I love that you’ve made a “light” cocktail without adding a bunch of creepy artificial sweetener. Keep ’em coming!
YUM! This is totally a summer keeper! I love tropical drinks to begin with, so a low calorie one is right up my alley!
Made it! It’s awesome! Thanks : )
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.
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 😉
Well I guess I don’t have to spend the weekend firigung this one out!
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!
This is absolutely amazing! Tastes JUST like a piÃ±a colada without all the extra calories. Yum!
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.
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!
Welcome back to the blog world! 🙂
