1 Pregnancy-safe cocktail recipes: Piña Colada on 7th November 2009, 2:28 pm

Another summer classic, the piña colada, is cool and refreshing. With its smoothie-like consistency, it can be gentler on a mom-to-be's stomach than other, more lively concoctions.

Of course, if citrus fruits — with their acidic qualities — have been playing havoc with your digestion, you may want something even milder. Although pineapple isn't technically part of the citrus family, its juice, like that of the orange, lime, or lemon, can be quite tart. For a sweeter, less tangy drink, use pineapple canned in syrup rather than its own juice.

Ingredients:
2 ounces coconut milk
1½ ounces crushed pineapple
1 ounce pineapple juice
1/4 cup crushed ice
Brown sugar to taste (no more than one tablespoon)


Preparation:
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (about 30 seconds). Pour into chilled glass. Garnish with an orange slice, a pineapple wedge, or a maraschino cherry.
