Homemade Pina Coladas {Recipe}

I am allergic to alcohol.

Well, not really.  BUT something about it makes me sick every time I try to drink it, the instant it hits my stomach :(.  I’ve tried every form — chick beer, beer, wine, liquor, mixed drinks — it doesn’t matter.

It’s a real bummer because I feel silly going out for a drink with the girls and because I LOVE frilly girly drinks.   In order to enjoy BBQ’s a little more, I decided to figure out how to make my own from scratch.   And maybe no one will notice I forgot the rum in mine :).

To make a homemade Pina Colada you only need 3 ingredients:

  • 2 oz (1/4 c) Cream of Coconut
  • 4 oz (1/2 c) Pineapple Juice
  • 1 c Ice
  • 2 oz (1/4 c) Coconut Rum (optional ;D)

Place ice, cream of coconut and pineapple juice in blender until slushy.  Pour into a pretty frilly glass and enjoy!

You can reduce the pineapple juice to 2 oz if using rum for a more traditional mix.  It’s entirely up to you.   Also, the cream of coconut is difficult to find–it’s NOT the same as coconut milk.  I finally found mine near the mixed drinks where they had a small selection of things like grenadine, angostura, etc., on the top shelf above my head :).   I’ve also heard people say they’ve found it near the canned milk/coconut milk.

I’m thinking of tackling Strawberry Daiquiri’s next…Any requests?

What’s your favorite drink?
