Yes, I like piña coladas. (You’re totally finishing that thought with something about the rain . . . aren’t you?) I’m happy to share a simple way to get the same delicious tropical flavor without the sky-high calorie count. Enjoy it spiked for 175 calories, or blend up a virgin version for just 130 calories.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 Servings
  • 1½ cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • ¾ cup canned light coconut milk (see note)
  • 3 to 5 ice cubes
  • 1½ ounces rum
  • 1 to 2 drops coconut extract (optional)
  • 2 wedges fresh pineapple (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded, unsweetened coconut (optional)

Add all the ingredients to a blender and process until smooth and creamy. To make these even more coco-nutty and delicious, add 2 tablespoons of shredded, unsweetened coconut before blending.

Pour the piña coladas into glasses and garnish each with a pineapple wedge, if desired.

Note: Because canned coconut milk tends to separate, make sure to shake the can well before you open it.
