Virgin Piña Colada

By on July 25, 2018

Pineapple and coconut pair up in a frozen mocktail that will bring a smile to your face while supporting healthy bones, teeth and gums.

• Tall cup

Ingredients:
1 can (14 oz/400 mL) full-fat coconut milk, chilled
2⁄3 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
6 ice cubes
1 tsp rum extract or almond extract

Directions:
1. Using a spoon, carefully remove the thick layer of coagulated cream from the top of the can of coconut milk and transfer to a bowl. Measure out 2 tbsp (30 mL) cream and add to the tall cup. Measure 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) of the remaining coconut milk and set aside. Reserve extra coconut cream and coconut milk for another use.

2. Add pineapple, coconut, ice cubes, reserved coconut milk and rum extract to the coconut cream in the tall cup. Twist the extractor blade onto the cup to seal. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth.

Tips:
Chill the can of coconut milk thoroughly and avoid shaking before opening to avoid mixing the cream with the milk. Any remaining coconut milk can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 6 months for use in other recipes. Add a colorful paper cocktail umbrella to each drink for a festive flair.
