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:

1 1/2 cup ice

1/2 cup diced pineapple, frozen

2 ounces pineapple juice

2 ounces Coco Lopez coconut cream

1 1/2 ounces white rum

Leaves of fresh mint or pineapple slices for garnish

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.

Put the ice, frozen pineapple, juice, coconut cream, and the white rum into a blender. Blend until smooth and frosty. Pour the drink into 2 glasses and garnish the rim with mint leaves.
