Pina Colada

Summer arrived in our backyard!  Summer is officially another 19 days away. We are so privileged to steal a few days from spring to celebrate summer early. There is no better way to welcome this beautiful day than a glass of frozen pina colada. Pineapple and coconut are two of my favorite cocktail ingredients; they came together perfectly in this cool, refreshing drink on a hot ‘summery’ day. Cheers!


  • 300g very ripe frozen pineapple chunks
  • 100 ml unsweetened coconut cream
  • 30 ml fresh lime juice
  • 100 ml simple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 75 ml gold/dark rum (I used black seal rum)
  • 75 ml white rum (I used Malibu)
  • 250g ice cubes
  • Fresh Cherries, optional


  1. Blend all ingredients in a power blender until smooth.
  2. Divide into two 12 oz tall glasses.
  3. Garnish with cherries.
  4. Enjoy.


  • Pineapple must be very ripe. Freeze unused portions.
  • I dissolved half cup sugar in half cup water, and there is still simple syrup left behind.
  • Save whatever is not used to enjoy this refreshing drink even quicker the next time.
