Piña Coladas

Two words: Piña. Colada.
I have an obsession with this pineapple-coconut mixture. What a combo!
I happened across a recipe that I loved and (with a few adjustments) have been using it ever since. No alcohol, tons of fruity goodness, and very refreshing!

For a good 2 servings, you'll need:
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • Sugar and vanilla to taste (optional)

Put the first 3 ingredients in a blender and add about 6 ice cubes. Pulse the blender on high until the ice is just about all chopped up.

This is usually the point where I add the sugar and vanilla. I just eyeball it, but I'd say about 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tbsp of sugar. It's not necessary, but it adds flavor!

Add in another 6 ice cubes and pulse a bit to chop them up, then run the blender on high for around 15 seconds. Check your drink's consistency. If it's still too runny, add another couple ice cubes.

Run the blender/add ice until your pina colada looks like this:


Yum yum yum! Enjoy!
