Have you guys escaped the Polar Vortex? You guys, it was ROUGH in the Midwest this week. We had three snow days, which initially was super exciting, but got old FAST. The first one was when the heavens opened up and dumped a foot of snow on us Monday. Those kinds of snow days are great because the kids can go outside and play. The other ones were because it was colder here than it was in Antartica. For real. By the end of it, we were all stir crazy, ready to kill each other, and begging for school to start back up.

And here we are on a Friday, and all I can think about are these Three Ingredient Pina Coladas. How you ask? How can I be thinking about a frozen cocktail while stuck in Virtual Antartica? Because I’m dreaming of the tropics, that’s how.

THE BEST THREE INGREDIENT PINA COLADA RECIPE

This is, hands down, the BEST Pina Colada recipe because it is so simple. Throw out your Pina Colada Mix, because you only need three ingredients for this easy Pina Colada recipe. Apologies in advance if this post results in “If you like Pina Coladas . . . ” being stuck in your head. I promise the recipe will be worth it.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE THE PERFECT PINA COLADA?

This recipe only calls for three ingredients! And because it’s made with frozen fruit rather than ice it never gets watered down. Your Pina Colada ingredients are:

  • Frozen Pineapple
  • Sweetened coconut milk (around here we love Coco Lopez)
  • White rum . . . or sub in some Malibu for a stronger coconut vibe!

That’s it! It’ll mix up perfectly every time and can easily be doubled or tripled to entertain a crowd.

HOW TO MAKE PINA COLADA:

  • In a blender, combine three cups frozen pineapple, about a cup and a half of sweetened coconut milk, and just under a cup of white rum. Blend ’em all up until smooth.
  • This recipe makes two large cocktails, but it’s so easy to keep adding ingredients to keep the party going long enough to forget just how wintery it is out there!

    Good! I like it!

  2. Connie Ceban says

    Hi. How do you think it would turn out if coconut milk and liquid stevia were substituted for the sugar rich Coco Lopez? I think Coco Lopez is a food group!, but, oh the sugar and calories! Thank you in advance ☺️

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hmmmm, if I’m honest, I have my doubts. I would cut back on the amount of coconut milk if you do that because you don’t want to be too liquidy. If you give it a go let me know how it turns out!

  3. Karen Robinson says

    I use whole fat coco

  4. Nancy Curry says

    How would you make this drink virgin and still keep the right consistency? Thanks

    • Lisa Longley says

      If I were going to make it virgin, I would swap the rum for pineapple juice.

  5. Mayra Marin says

    I like pinna colda made more than 45 times family like it

  6. Madonna says

    Substitute for the rum?

    • Lisa Longley says

      If you want it to be NA, pineapple juice! If you just don’t like rum, I think it would be great with vodka.
