Pour one 20 oz can of pineapple chunks with its juice into a blender.
Next, add one can of coconut milk and the freshly squeezed juice of two oranges and one lemon. Add sweetener if desired. Blend until completely smooth.
Now add the ice and pulse until all large chunks are broken up. Pour into glasses and serve immediately with a garnish of fresh pineapple or cherries if you like! Total Yeild is about 6 cups.
Can I substitute fresh pineapple instead of canned?Definitely! For a pina colada with fresh pineapple, use 2 ½ cups fresh pineapple to replace the canned pineapple. Depending on the ripeness/sweetness of your pineapple, you may find that you need a bit more sweetener than when using canned pineapple.Why use canned coconut milk?Canned coconut milk is thicker and richer than the kind you buy in a jug, it makes this drink tastier!Can I turn this into a Virgin Pina Colada Smoothie?If you’d like to try a smoothie-style pina colada as opposed to a cool drink, replace the canned pineapple with 2 ½ cups frozen chunks of pineapple and omit the ice! Add the canned coconut milk slowly until everything blends nice and smooth and reaches your desired consistency! Done!
