Pina Colada

Since I live in Texas and the current average is above 100 each day, I love making cool drinks & treats. I whipped these up for the family when some fresh pineapples were going soft. 






The recipe is approximate, so please tailor based on your desired fruit to ice ratio to sweet ratio, you can't ruin a drink made up of pineapple, ice, and cream of coconut. Just have fun with it! 


But this is about the recipe I used to make a pitcher full:


Piña Coladas
The Apron Gal


Ingredients

5 cups ice

5 cups fresh pineapple

1/4 cup cream of coconut [this comes in a can or in a squeezable container you would find in the drink mixer section along with Margarita mix etc.]

1/2 cup pineapple juice [could probably be omitted if you didn't have it/want it]

2 1/2 TBS sugar [again, you might need more sugar or more of the sweeter ingredients if your pineapple isn't as sweet]

Directions


Blend all ingredients and serve immediately! If mixture begins to melt, freeze temporarily for up to 2 hours [after that it will turn to a block of ice and you will have to wait for it to re-thaw.]

Serve with a slice of pineapple on the glass & a cherry if you have them!


Relax & Enjoy!
