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. The flavor trifecta of pineapple, coconut and rum just can’t be beat when it comes to feeling and tasting that tropical vibe.

It’s easy, sweet and creamy… the perfect cocktail to sip while soaking in the summer sun. So grab your blender and kick your feet up!

If you like Pina Coladas . . . ?

Pina Coladas have long been the subject of song lyrics, movies and even politics. It’s the national drink of Puerto Rico, after all. So whether you’re in need of two Pina Coladas (one for each hand, right Garth?) or ready to sip Pina Coladas while getting caught in the rain a la Rupert Holmes, this recipe is for YOU.

Pina Colada Recipe

This recipe is a total winner because its only three ingredients and no added sweetener! Because it uses frozen fruit rather than ice, it won’t get watered down. Add your frozen pineapple, sweetened coconut milk, and white rum to a blender and blend until smooth. 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 of 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 all summer long!

A pineapple wedge and cherry make the perfect garnish.
