Fresh pineapple and coconut milk

What Is a Piña Colada?

The piña colada is a frozen blended drink that originated in Puerto Rico. It’s typically made from coconut, rum, pineapple juice, and ice.

Our inspired version uses whole pineapple instead of juice, and we freeze it so there’s no need to add ice! The result is more fiber and nutrients, plus a smooth and creamy texture.

Frozen pineapple chunks and coconut milk for making a piña colada

The frozen pineapple and coconut milk are blended up. Then, depending on the sweetness of your pineapple, you may choose to add a little honey or maple syrup.

For added protein, you can optionally add plain or vanilla protein powder. Or, for a whole food protein source, try a tablespoon or so of hemp seeds!

To make it boozy, add 1-2 ounces of white rum. You’ll be feeling like you’re on the beach in no time!
