This delicious virgin pina colada recipe is a great way to enjoy a delicious drink made with real food ingredients, without the alcohol.
I don’t drink often. Maybe once or twice a year, max. But sometimes, I crave the flavor of drinks like this one.
What's A Virgin Pina Colada?
Any drink with the word “virgin” in front of it means that it’s made exactly like an alcoholic drink, but minus the alcohol.
What Is In A Virgin Pina Colada?
If you were to order one in a bar, it will have all the same traditional mixes as the regular, alcoholic version, but without the alcohol.
But when you make it at home, things change a little. Especially when your aim is using real food ingredients.
The ingredients are coconut milk, frozen pineapple and sweetener. Quick, simple and totally delicious.
What Does A Virgin Pina Colada Taste Like?
It’s the wonderfully tropical combination of coconut and pineapple in the form of a smoothie
What’s In A Homemade Virgin Pina Colada?
4 cups frozen pineapple chunks – Make sure you get the unsweetened pineapple. The ingredients should simple say, “pineapple” on the package.
13.5 oz. can full fat coconut milk – Make sure this is the canned variety. Do not use the stuff in the carton. Also, make sure there is no added sugar. You want the unsweetened stuff.
2 tbsp. maple syrup – Use the real stuff. If you don’t have any handy, honey is a great substitute.
1-2 cups ice – I didn’t use this, but if you prefer an icier texture (like what you would get in a bar), add 1 to 2 cups of ice and blend it in with everything else. Without the ice, this is more like an icy smoothie.
How To Make A Virgin Pina Colada
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend.
Pour into a glass and serve with a pretty umbrella or straw.
