Pina Colada Recipe
by Becca Matheson, Tastemaker in Residence
My favorite summertime beverage (when I’m not counting my calories) is a frosty pina colada. Here’s my favorite recipe:
One can of Coco Lopez coconut cream (It HAS to be Coco Lopez! No other coconut cream or pina colada mix will do!)
1 1/2 - 2 cups Pineapple juice
Vanilla Ice cream (optional, it works great with just ice)
Rum (or hold the rum for a delicious virgin pina colada)
- In blender add a fourth a can of stirred Coco Lopez , 2 juice cans or 1 cup of pineapple juice (for the Coco Lopez and pineapple juice, blend and add more of whichever to taste), 2 scoops of ice cream (optional), and fill the blender to the top with ice.
- Hit the liquefy or grind button on your blender and blend until thick and smooth, adding more ice, pineapple juice, or Coco Lopez until you get the desired flavor/texture.
- Garnish with a maraschino cherry and a slice of pineapple and enjoy!
