Piña Colada Recipe
Rum, coconut milk, and pineapple juice are the main ingredients of traditional pia Coladas, which have their roots in Puerto Rico. Since becoming the island’s national beverage in 1978, it has gained popularity on a global scale. Even a song was composed about the cocktail, which is frequently what I think of when sipping.
This recipe for a sugar-free pina colada omits pineapple juice, which is high in sugar. Instead, the use of coconut milk in this keto cocktail truly brings out the sweetness and richness of the natural coconut flavors.
It is also mildly sweetened with either monkfruit or erythritol, two sugar-free sweeteners, though you can also use allulose or stevia. The popular tropical tastes of this cocktail, such as pineapple, are provided by pia colada extract. For a more festive appearance, I also like to garnish my keto pia colada drinks with cute paper umbrellas and fresh pineapple wedges.
The flavor of a pia colada
The coconut milk and pia colada extract give this keto pia colada dish its distinctive flavor. Try to locate unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk. Lite coconut milk should be avoided as it contains more sugar. Additionally, stay away from the cocktail mixers you might get at the grocery store. They might include more carbohydrates.
If pia colada extract is not available, you can alternatively use other well-known brands, such as Baja Bob’s and Jordan’s Skinny Mixes. The thin mixtures have fewer carbohydrates but still contain sugar and high fructose corn syrup. If desired, you can skip this component and still enjoy a delicious low-carb pia colada. Pineapple extract is an additional choice.
Simply avoid eating the pineapple. Coconut flakes, either toasted or untoasted, make wonderful accents to the cup rim.
