  • 2 cups (490 g) fresh pineapples diced
  • 5 oz (190 g) sweetened cream of coconut
  • cup (80 g) coconut milk
  • 4 ounces (120 ml) white rum
  • 2 ounces (60 ml) dark rum (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Maraschino cherries, pineapple, and lime slices for garnish


  • Combine fresh pineapple, cream of coconut, coconut milk, white and dark rum, lime juice and ice cubes to a blender cup.
  • Blend on high until smooth and frosty (slushy frozen drink consistency).
  • Pour into two tall glasses and garnish with maraschino cherries, pineapple, and lime slices.
  • Serve immediately.


  • You can replace fresh pineapple with canned pineapple juice.
  • Try experimenting with white and dark rums to find your perfect pina colada recipe.
  • Use crushed ice if you don't have a blender to make a frozen pina colada.
  • Buy unsweetened cream of coconut so you'll have more control of the sweetness.
  • Serve your colada drink in a carved-out pineapple for a more tropical vibe.
  • Do not add too much ice as it is going to melt and make the drink watery.
  • Add fresh lime juice and a fresh sprig of mint to balance the sweetness of your cocktail.
  • Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on the products used.
