Vegan Pina Colada
Summer weather is here, my friends.
As the temperatures return to warm glimpses of summer, we move back outside.
We grill, we lounge in the sun, we have happy hour at home. We get creative with cocktails, and this time of year, the cooler and lighter the cocktail, the better.
If that summer cocktail is served in a pineapple? All the better.
Enter this Lightened Up Pina Coladas recipe - something you'll revisit all summer long!
This Light and Fresh Piña Colada is lower in saturated fat and calories than the traditional counterpart. Which means you can have two, right?
This recipe takes just a few minutes to prep and blend - you can bet the next hot day you'll find me on the patio with one of these frosty favorites!

Pina coladas are usually packed full of calories so I avoid them but this recipe looks like the best of both worlds.
