Aloha! The sunshine has arrived here in PDX and everyone has serious summer vibes! With this gorgeous weather it’s only natural that we talk about blended drinks! If you ask me, there’s no better way to enjoy the sun 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 into cute cups and serve it like soft serve. Add a dollop of whip cream and some pineapple bits and you have one delicious tropical treat!
Wouldn’t this be perfect to serve at your palm tree themed party?!
