LC Pina Colada!

leave a comment »

Here’s my first post on using Glucomannan powder in a recipe.
I got this idea while driving home from work this afternoon!! I was dreaming of having a Pina Colada! I realized that I could try to make my fav. drink using this powder to thicken it.
When I make a regular Pina Colada, I love to use ice cream and I thought this powder might do the trick.

I can’t believe I made such a fantastic low carb Pina Colada!
Here’s what I did-
1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Torani coconut syrup
6 drops of liquid splenda
2 truvia packets
1 scoop unflavored protein powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1/16 tsp xantham gum
1/2-3/4 tsp of unsweetened Pineapple/orange koolaid
Rum to taste-optional
Lots of ice
I put the liquid ingredients in blender first-gave it a quick whirl
I had combined the protein powder, glucomannan and x. gum in a small bowl first and then added 1/2 to blender at a time. Added the kool aid powder.
Added ice 2 at a time until I was happy with the consistency.
We did add rum and enjoyed every sip of it!
