Virgin Pina Colada

The first working day of February asked for comfort, I can’t get over with the patch of morning blues, these are the days when I behest to pamper myself. What can be easier on the eye than a rousing and inviting fruit mocktail, I love the charm of pastel and soft hued shades, which is why this mocktail tries to enthrall my attention urging me to make it again and again. The refreshing flavor of pineapple coalesces quickly with the mild and sweet taste of coconut butter. As it's saccharine with a pronounced pineapple flavor, you can add milk cream to balance the sweetness, there is a fragrance of strained pineapple and coconut cream, because who doesn’t love a little luxury?

Itsy bitsy goodies in a form of breakfast have always pushed me to rise up early during my sluggish and dull days, Hashim would happily make pina colada and I would be busy plating slices of avocados, sourdough and scrambled egg, perfect kick start of our day. As it is said, happy life comes from happy tummy! And we love to dig our forks into an amazing piece of nature! Pina colada has been a staple drink of Spain and has always given its frequent appearance at tiki lounges, but now this yummilicious drink is giving a regular visit especially when we don’t have a time for breakfast! As pineapples are rich in enzymes, which is great for the digestive system as well as it is the best source of vitamin C, knowing the facts we love to sip this drink more often.

Vegan Pina Colada

Virgin Pina Colada

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 3 persons

1 cup pineapple juice
½ cup pineapple slices, I have used the canned one’s
2-3 tablespoons coconut cream
1 tablespoon milk cream
Sugar as required
Crushed Ice as required

  • In a blender, add 3 tablespoons coconut cream and 1 tablespoon milk cream, blend until smooth.
  • Now add white rum to the blender, but I always make virgin pina colada by skipping this step. You can also add vanilla ice cream for a twist in flavor.
  • Add ½ cup pineapple slices, 1 cup pineapple juice, and sugar in a blender. Blend it well so that pina colada turns into a smooth, soft & creamy mocktail drink.
  • Adjust the consistency and taste by adding milk cream and pineapple slices. Before pouring the drink decorate the rim of the glass by simply rotating the rim of your glass in sugar syrup or honey until the rim is evenly wetted, later press the rim gently in the plate of fresh coconut flakes, Easy!
  • Pour it into a glass, sprinkle coconut flakes and garnish this delicious drink with crushed ice, pineapple or strawberry slices.
Who said Pina colada cannot be a non-alcoholic drink? Leave the rum out if you’re making this for the little ones as the points remain the same with or without. The main ingredient for making pina colada mocktail is coconut milk or cream. If you prefer non-alcoholic drinks, then this one is definitely must try for you. Whisk yourself away to a balmy tropical island for a few heavenly moments.
