Sugar-Free Pina Colada

A typical Pina Coloda is loaded with sugar, but we don't have to send our blood sugar up to enjoy this bit of tropical heaven. I have minimized the sugar in this version by replacing both the pineapple juice and the cream of coconut with sugar-free versions. Because this relies on pineapple flavoring, people who have room in their carb allotment or aren't too sensitive to sugars may want to use actual pineapple juice, at 2 grams of sugar (carb) per tablespoon.
