Ingredients

  • 2 8 oz cans pineapple chunks in juice
  • 3 oz cream of coconut, preferably Coco Lopez
  • 3 oz coconut cream, unsweetened
  • 6 oz rum
  • ice to fill the glasses
  • pineapple slices and maraschino cherries for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Puree the pineapple chunks until smooth. Pour the pureed pineapple through a fine, mesh strainer to remove the pulp. You will have about 12 oz of juice left.
  • Add the strained juice, cream of coconut, coconut cream, and rum to the blender and puree until smooth.
  • Divide ice among 4 glasses and then pour in the pina colada. Garnish with pineapple slices, maraschino cherries, and little umbrellas if you wish.

Notes

  • Brands I Use: I prefer the Coco Lopez brand of cream of coconut, and the Thai Kitchen brand of coconut cream.
  • Alcohol Free Version: To make a virgin Pina Colada, use coconut water in place of the rum.
