Pina Colada Inspired Treat

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…

pina colada shake

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!

Palm Tree Party Ideas


Well, summer is o v e r.

I don’t know about you, but I’m already missing the sunshine and warm summer nights. I wish to be magically transported to a tropical island where I can sit under a palm tree, listen to the ocean, and sip on something with one of those little umbrellas. Since that’s not going to happen we here at Fancy That are bringing summer back to Portland, palm trees and all! And while we can’t actually get to a tropical island, we can turn up the heat, put on our bathing suits and party like summer never ended!
