What is a less fattening tropical or summery drink?


Hi, I am going on vacation to Hawaii and one of my favorite things is tropical drinks -- mai tais, pina coladas, etc. However these are all really high in calories and sugar and I have been trying to lose weight. I have been so dedicated to healthier eating and I don't want to mess it all up on vacation. Are there any ideas for tropical drinks with fewer calories? Thank you!
----------

I had the same problem when we went to Mexico last year! Sorry to say, there's no easy fix. I drank Mojitos (which still have sugar but not as much) and I would try flavored vodka with a diet drink. I love vanilla vodka and diet coke. Raspberry vodka is pretty good with diet sprite but not all places have diet sprite. If I were you, I'd ask the bartenders as well. They may be able to come up with something creative!

Good luck!! :)


Forgot about flavored rum! haha Malibu is always a good bet!  (+ info)

----------

Here are some invitation ideas:
http://www.party411.com/custom-invitations-luau.html

If it's an inside party, make it feel tropical, crank up the furnace to about 90F.

Costume Suggestions

Buy flower leis to give to each guest, putting them around their necks as they arrive to the party.

Many costume shops sell plastic leis or you might find a florist who can provide leis made of real flowers.


You could also make tribal headdresses using large leaves and flowers and attaching them to a headband.

Make a grass skirt by twisting green crepe paper and having it hanging down from a sash. Many costume shops also sell grass skirts, so you could try the nearest store perhaps.

Decorations

Set a tropical look by decorating the house in bright big flowers and leaves. You could maybe use real flowers bought from a florist.

You can also try making large flowers and leaves using crepe paper and cardboard. Make cutouts of coconut trees to put along the walls.

Decorate chairs by adding bamboo to the backs of them for an exotic touch. You can give the same look to tables by covering them with a bamboo blind.

Use a kiddie pool filled with ice to keep drinks in. Lay a tarpaulin beneath it and surround it with sand and fake palm trees, making an oasis where the guests can quench their thirst.

Food Suggestions

Serve tropical food like large fruit platters using banana, berries, mangos, pineapple and other luscious fruit. Spice up a fruit salad by adding thick coconut shavings to it.

A roast would also be good for a tropical celebration. You could maybe try to hire a spit for the party.

Make a large punch for the guests to drink. Add large chunks of pineapple and other fruit. You can decorate the punch bowl by surrounding it with leaves and flowers.

Serve food on large banana leaves instead of plates.

Try to serve drinks in halved coconut shells. Or you could even use pineapples with the centres hollowed out. Add bright bendy straws and cocktail umbrellas to add to the look.


Games & Activities

Pineapple Toss:
Set a table outside and cover it in a bamboo blind.

Line pineapples along it, spaced evenly apart, and have guests try to throw rings around them for prizes.

You can make rings by cutting the centres out of plastic plates. If you need to add more weight to the rings, use several plates taped together.

Coconut Bash:
Set a second table outside and cover it in a bamboo blind.

Line it with plastic cups and set a coconut on top of each one.

Mark a line on the ground using tape or even flour, and have a basket close by filled with balls.

Have the guests try to knock over the coconuts down.

Monkey Mayhem:
Make a large palm tree cutout using cardboard and paint. Try to cut it so that there are lots of leaves that hang to the sides.

Fix thumbtacks to the back of the palm tree by placing sticky-tape over the pin and taping them to the back, with the pin facing outward.

Also make cutouts of monkeys and attach a paper clip to each one using tape.

Using the paperclips, hang a monkey from each thumbtack so it looks like they’re swinging in the tree.

Have the guests try to knock the monkeys off by either throwing balls at them or squirting them with a water pistol.  (+ info)

What types of food can i bring in to class for tropical dry forest?


I'm doing a tropical dry forest project and i have to bring in food for it.

What foods should i bring in?
----------

"Tropical" usually means Fruits and Pork.

Wild pigs live great lives in tropical areas and have been staple foods for people in tropical regions.

Dried or fresh mangos...

Fresh coconuts with the Coconut Milk to drink...

You can buy banana leaves at specialty stores and wrap plantains, pork, and onions (sort of mashed together) and tie the "Packets" with string and steam in a pot for 20 minutes. You can make them the day before, don't unwrap, and bring them the next day to be eaten at room temperature and "Unwrapped" by your classmates and eaten off the leaf like a plate.
