Yummy Drinks Kids Will Enjoy--Under 80 Calories!! For Mom and Dad too.

Just because the summer is almost over doesn't mean all the fun has to end. 

Here is a quick post to tell you about two awesome drinks I made that are under 100 calories each--and you can share them with the kids! (If you want...)

*Coconut Fizzy*

Ice Cubes (I fill the glass)

Coconut La Croix Seltzer

Pineapple Juice


1 tsp. coconut milk or cream per glass (you can also use whipped cream)

Fill glass 2/3 of the way with seltzer. (If you have never had La Croix Coconut Seltzer I HIGHLY recommend it. It is somehow creamy all on it's own with NO sugar, NO color, and NO calories. Delicious.) Add about 1/4 cup pineapple juice (or to taste). Add about 1 tsp. coconut milk or cream and stir well. Squeeze a bit of lime on top and add ice. This drink rivals any pina colada I've ever had. Yummmm. (You can also add a scoop of whipped cream on top but that puts it over 100 calories--might be worth it.)


Ice Cubes

Vanilla Polar Seltzer (another somehow creamy calorie free drink)

Orange Juice

Vanilla almond milk or soy milk OR 1 tsp. coconut milk

Fill glass 1/2 with vanilla seltzer. Fill other half with orange juice. Add the vanilla almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk and stir well. Light, refreshing, and delicious.

Both of these drinks are so much better for you than soda. Coconut cream has EFAs and juices are filled with vitamin C. 

BTW--2 TBSP of whipped cream only has 16 calories. (You can also make divine whipped "cream" by taking some of the solids off of the top of the coconut cream, adding a bit of sugar and whipping the same way as cream. Yum again. And it's vegan.)

Here are the seltzers:



  1. They sound tasty!

    For a time in my teens, I had a taste for seltzer. Haven't bought it in years.

    1. These two are delicious. And NO CALORIES!!

  2. I made the coconut one,and i love it!l thanks so much Dea...cant wait till i get some ship wrecked coconut rum...

    1. Ooohhh coconut rum! That is going to put it over the top. Tell me how it goes--I may have to try Ship Wrecked myself. Yo ho ho!

  3. 3 Researches REVEAL Why Coconut Oil Kills Belly Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
