Piña coladas are the classic summertime frozen cocktail. They are also just as easy to make non-alcoholic without sacrificing flavor.
I didn’t realize until my early thirties just how easy these are to make at home. All you’ll need is a blender and 3 ingredients (not including ice) for your own tropical getaway right at home (they’re budget-friendly, too!).
Your Simple Ingredients
- Cream of coconut
- Pineapple Juice
- Light rum
What Is Cream of Coconut?
Cream of coconut is coconut cream combined with sugar. It’s normally in a can or plastic bottle and typically is found in the cocktail aisle or section of your grocery store.
How to Make Non-Alcoholic (Virgin) Piña Coladas
The non-alcoholic version of this cocktail is just as delicious and flavorful. Simply substitute extra pineapple juice for the rum.
This recipe yields approximately 24 ounces which is 2 (12-ounce) servings. Garnish with fresh pineapple wedges and maraschino cherries for a beautiful presentation.
Enjoy and please drink responsibly. Cheers!Print
