Sugar-Free Pina Colada

Opal Jackson-Cakmak


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.

How to Make Sugar-Free Pina Colada


  1. Ingredients:
    •1 jigger rum (1.5 oz.; 3 tablespoons)
    •5 tablespoons coconut milk or coconut cream (NOT Cream of Coconut!)
    •4 tablespoons sugar-free pineapple syrup, such as Da Vinci
    •1 cup ice


    Put ingredients in blender and blend until slushy.

    If you want a non-frozen version, put ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake, and strain out the ice.
