Virgin Piña Colada

Nothing beats this classic drink recipe. You may have noticed that I talked about this delicious drink in my blog post titled, March Recap Spring 2021 because this drink was one of my favourite things to drink while I was pregnant. Re: Virgin Piña Colada!

I made this drink often while pregnant, and people ridiculed me for drinking it because they thought I was drinking its alcoholic cousin. Seriously, who do you think I am?! To this day, I rarely drink alcohol because I really don’t see what’s so great about drinking nail polish remover. Sorry, not sorry! Alcohol does not taste good to me and I have to drink it with loads of sugar to make it more palatable 😝 So if you came here for the alcoholic version of this drink, feel free to add your own alcohol. For the rest of you who enjoy Shirley Temples and other fun non-alcoholic drinks, you are in for a treat today. My sans alcohol version of the classic Piña Colada has been tested and approved by myself and my family. Cheers! 🍍🥥

Virgin Piña Colada

Servings: 1                          Time: 2 minutes                          Difficulty: easy

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tbsp. crushed pineapple
  • 1/3 can low fat coconut milk
  • 2-3 tbsp. pineapple juice
  • 6 ice cubes

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using a personal blender (I use a Nutri Ninja), add the crushed pineapple, pineapple juice and coconut milk. Quickly pulse the ingredients. Using a spoon, taste to make sure the coconut balances the pineapple. If flavours are balanced, continue to step #2.
  2. Add the ice. Personally, I like my drink very iced so I use 6 cubes. Slowly add a few ice cubes and pulse. Then add a few more ice cubes so the blender doesn’t get jammed. When the desired consistency is reached, it is ready to drink.
  3. Pour into a fancy glass and add a milkshake straw (optional).

      Same here! The only tropical drink I don’t like is the pineapple-coconut smoothie from MCDs. It’s gross, so I much rather make it myself! Either than that, tropical drinks are a hit with me too!🍍🥥🌴

      Same here, Pooja! I can relate on so many levels. I’ve gotten lazy too. I’ll still drink cold beverages in the middle of winter as long as I don’t have to make them myself, like Iced Capps. 😂
