Strawberry Pina Colada

Ingredients

For the strawberry layer:

  • 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
  • 1 ounce white rum
  • ½ cup pineapple juice

For the pineapple coconut layer:

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 ounce white rum
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup cream of coconut
  • Pineapple wedges for garnish
  • Fresh Strawberries for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place the strawberries, rum, and pineapple juice into a blender and blend until smooth, to create the strawberry layer.
  2. Pour it into the bottom of 2 glasses. Clean out the blender.
  3. Place the pineapple chunks, rum, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut into the blender and blend until smooth. This makes the pineapple coconut layer, pour it or spoon it over the strawberry layer in both glasses.
  4. Garnish with pineapples and strawberries if desired.

Notes

  1. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
  2. If you want to use Malibu in place of white rum that would give it an extra punch of coconut flavor.
  3. This Strawberry Pina Colada is not overly sweet. If you are looking for a sweeter drink, add 1 ounce of simple syrup to each mixture.
  4. Make sure to use a cream of coconut in the can and shake it well. Coconut milk and coconut cream are not the same things.
  5. These can be frozen, but may slightly change the consistency, see my tips above.
  6. Try making other flavors!
  7. This can be made virgin and kid-friendly, see above on how to do that.
  8. Do not try to use fresh fruit for this, you will need frozen.
