I used Sweet’N Low® to make this Virgin Strawberry Colada as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #donthesitaste
Growing up I was a deprived little girl. Yes, I believe this is true. You see, no one in my family liked coconut, so it was never an option in our household. I didn’t think I even liked it until I tried it for myself at a friends house. I fell in love with it and it was that point on that I knew I had to have coconut in my life. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the taste of coconut is in a virgin strawberry colada. I use Sweet ‘N Low® sweetener to sweeten it up which saves calories without sacrificing taste!
I love to make this recipe for friends and family when they come over for dinner. It always surprises them that I don’t use a pre-made drink mix. This recipe is so easy to make and surprisingly doesn’t take many ingredients. I don’t particularly care for the pre-made drink mixes because fresh ingredients always make a better tasting drink! I can also reduce the calories by adding Sweet ‘N Low® sweetener which has zero calories!
Sweet ‘N Low® sweetener tones down the tartness of the pineapples, but doesn’t over power the drink with sweetness. It’s the perfect summer dinner party drink that will remind you of the tropics!
Virgin Strawberry Colada
- 10 fresh or frozen strawberries hulled and rinsed
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup coconut milk the creamy kind that comes in a can
- 1 cup ice
- 2 to 3 packets of Sweet 'N Low® Sweetener
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high for around 20 seconds or until it becomes a slushy consistency. Add crushed ice if desired and pour into cups. Each batch makes 1 to 2 drinks. Garnish with strawberries and pineapples.
If I make this for my immediate family… I can make it without the coconut! lol
