Do you love the flavor of pina colada as much as I do? It really says summer to me and it is a taste I don't want to give up in order to lose weight. The good news is that on Weight Watchers you don't have to give anything up…just have to count it. I made a couple of modifications to these Weight Watchers Pina Colada Popsicles to save even more points! They turned out delicious!
Weight Watchers Pina Colada Popsicles
When I first saw this Skinny Pina Colada Popsicle recipe over on Community Table I knew it would be easy to adapt it to make even more Weight Watchers Friendly.
I love how easy it can be to modify recipes to make them healthier and to save freestyle smartpoints. Yippee!
One big change I made was to swap out the white sugar for a no-calorie sweetener. I used Pyure in this Weight Watchers Pina Colada Popsicles recipe. It is a blend of Organic Stevia and Organic Erythritol and tastes very close to the real thing without the calories.
How to Make Weight Watchers Pina Colada Popsicles
If you don't have pineapple chunks then you will need to cut the pineapple into chunks.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. It took mine about 4 hours to get totally frozen.
Be sure to use the full size popsicle molds in order to get 6 popsicles. If you use smaller molds then you can make more popsicles!
Stay on Track
I have figured out to fail on Weight Watchers after many, many failures. Since I am trying to beat my record of failing….it really helps to keep things on hand like these popsicles.
If I can grab one of these instead of a cookie or piece of cake then I am doing great!
What things do you do to stay on track? Do you like to meal plan each weekend?
Weight Watchers Pina Colada Popsicles are a delightfully fresh sweet frozen treat! These are only
Cut the pineapple into chunks if you don't have diced pineapple available.
Puree the pineapple along with the juice in a blender with the Pyure, light coconut milk, coconut extract, until smooth.
Pour into full size popsicle molds and freeze.
This recipe has a TOTAL of 4 Freestyle SmartPoints. Making 6 popsicles comes out to 1 point each.
Be sure to figure out the recipe based on the ingredients YOU use! The only items that have points are the pineapple juice and the lite coconut milk. I used SO Delicious Organic Lite Coconut Milk Beverage. It has 70 calories per cup. You may use a coconut milk with less. Don't use the canned coconut milk.
