Burger King Piña Colada Smoothie
A Lotta Colada...
Smoothies can be so deceptive. They seem all virtuous, with their fruit-boasting ways. "Look at me! I'm made with real pineapple!" You might even think this piña colada pick is a great alternative to the actual cocktail, given that there are no calories coming from alcohol. But check out the stats below. Even an ENTIRE pineapple doesn't have that many calories or grams of sugar! Still, we crave a blendy coconut-pineapple sipper as much as the next person, so we whipped up a recipe for a freezy-licious creamy swap. The tropical flavor is absolutely incredible, and the stats REALLY cannot be beat. What's that? The Burger King peeps are no longer offering their Piña Colada Smoothie? They must've heard what we were up to... Happy sipping, humans!!!
Serving Size: 1 medium smoothie
