The flavors of your favorite beach cocktail simplified into a 2-ingredient smoothie. This refreshing smoothie requires just 5 minutes and 1 blender to make. Plus, easy ways to enjoy as a protein smoothie or blended cocktail.
To a high-speed blender add frozen pineapple and coconut milk (we prefer light canned). Then blend on high until creamy and smooth, using the tamper (if available) to push down and blend more easily. Add more coconut milk as needed to facilitate blending and ensure creaminess.
Taste and adjust flavors as needed, adding more coconut milk for creaminess, pineapple to thicken // add sweet-tart flavor, or a bit of honey or maple syrup (optional) for additional sweetness.
If enjoying as a smoothie, you have the option of adding a bit of protein powder of choice, such as plain or vanilla. If enjoying as a cocktail, add 1-2 oz of your favorite rum (white is preferred) and blend again to combine.
Enjoy fresh as is, or top with coconut whipped cream, a cherry, a slice of pineapple, and mint (all optional).
If you have leftovers, freeze into popsicles or ice cube molds (if you’ve already added booze, they likely won’t firm up all the way). When ready to use, simply blend the piña colada ice cubes in your blender with rum or additional coconut milk.
