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 1/2 oz. coconut rum
1 1/2 oz. sugar-free calorie-free coconut-flavored syrup
1/4 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp. crushed pineapple packed in juice
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
1 cup crushed ice or 5 to 8 ice cubes
Optional garnish: pineapple wedge

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend at high speed until smooth.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!

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!
