Piña Colada Ingredients — frozen pineapple, coconut milk and rum
PIÑA COLADA INGREDIENTS:
So what’s in this easy piña colada recipe? No cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez or Coco Real), no storebought piña colada mix, no sugar-added pineapple juice…no need. To make these naturally-sweetened piña coladas (which also happen to be naturally gluten-free and vegan), you will simply need:
Frozen pineapple: A bag of it store-bought, or you can cut and freeze your own.
Rum: White rum is traditional, but any kind will do.
Coconut milk: As in normal, straight-from-the-can (or carton) coconut milk. You can either use the full-fat or light coconut milk, your choice.
