Hungry Girl's Piña Colada Freeze

Tropical Treat!
It's hot out. And today is National Piña Colada Day (good timing, huh?). So, you really have no choice but to indulge in a frozen pineapple-coconut cocktail, right?! But rather than suck down a typical piña colada packed with crazy amounts of calories and fat, be a little creative and whip up one of ours. It's insanely creamy, super-delicious and we pretty much guarantee that you'll like it as much as any piña colada you've ever had. Don't believe us? Whip out that blender and give those blades (and our awesome recipe) a whirl!

Ingredients:
1 oz. light rum
1.5 oz. Torani Sugar Free Coconut Syrup
1/4 cup Breyer's Double Churn Fat Free Ice Cream, Creamy Vanilla
1 tbsp. crushed pineapple in its own juice
3/4 cup crushed ice
1 packet Splenda (or another no-calorie sweetener)

Directions:
Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour into a cute cocktail glass. Then share this recipe with everyone you know!

Sub-Piña!
We all know that piña coladas are fattening, but did you know that a piña colada at the beach club can contain as much as 650 calories (and dozens of grams of fat)? That's NUTS -- but not surprising, since it's packed with cream, coconut, sugary syrups and other over-caloried items. Who on earth wants to be in a bathing suit (not to mention a sugar coma) after swallowing all those calories in a poolside cocktail? Um, pretty much NO ONE (at least no one WE know!). So, instead of giving up on sweet, fun, ice cream-y cocktails, be a little adventurous, and a little clever -- or at least smart enough to take HG's advice. Chill out and try our Piña Colada Freeze!
