If there’s one drink that is synonymous with “beach”, it’s the coconut/pineapple concoction known as the pina colada. And while on vacation here in Florida, we couldn’t help but create our own! Check out the recipe we came up with below:
5 oz of pineapple coconut juice (no added sugar-see brand example below)
3 generous tablespoons of cream of coconut
1/2 ripe banana
10 ice cubes (or fill a Solo cup mostly full)
1 1/2 oz dark rum
Maraschino cherry for garnish
Blend juice, cream, banana, and ice in a blender
Pour into a glass
Top with shot of dark rum and stir
Garnish with the cherry
For the pineapple coconut juice, I’d recommend L&A Juice since it’s 100% juice with no sweeteners added.
For cream of coconut, try Coco Lopez , it’s a pretty popular and yummy choice.
Need to skip the booze? Hold the rum and enjoy it “virgin”. It still takes delicious!
