Pina Colada Inspired Recipe



Aloha! It’s turning into fall here in PDX and with fall comes the rain…but we’ve got Hawaiian vacay’s on the brain here at Fancy That! So it’s only natural that we talk about blended drinks! If you ask me, there’s no better way to get rid of those rainy day blues than with a tropical drink in your hand. This pina colada milk shake is so sweet, so fresh and so easy. Make it a virgin or dirty it up a bit with some rum! Here’s how you make it…

You will need 1 can of coconut milk, a bag of frozen pineapple and vanilla ice cream. Rum is optional 🙂

In a blender put the whole can of coconut milk (make sure it’s the full fat kind so you get that delicious cream top), the whole bag of pineapple, and 3 heaping scoops of vanilla ice cream. If you want to add a little sumpin sumpin, pour in a splash or two or three of your favorite rum right in there.

Blend it up until it’s nice a smooth. At this point you can pour it into a glass and drink it like a shake or you can do what I did and put it in the freezer for about a half an hour to let it firm up a bit.

Once it’s firm you can scoop your pina colada mix into Fancy That’s cute ice cream cups and serve it like soft serve. Add a dollop of whip cream and some pineapple bits and you have one onolicious tropical treat!
