Ultimate Frozen Pina Colada Recipe

To make our ultimate frozen pina colada recipe, you will need the same things that you would need to make a pina colada recipe from scratch: rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and ice. The method is just a bit different, but you can still modify the recipe according to your taste, so if you like it a little sweeter or a little bit stronger, you can easily make those adjustments on the fly and create a drink that anyone would love. The method for our frozen Pina Colada recipe follows:

  • 2 or 3 ounces of rum (you can use your favorite, but a white or silver rum is traditional)
  • 2 ounces Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)—not Coconut Milk!
  • 2 ounces Pineapple Juice (this can be from a bottle or can, or fresh!)
  • Ice

To begin with, measure and pour all of the ingredients into the blender. Fill the glass you plans to use to serve up with ice, but leave a little bit of room at the top. This is just so you know how much ice to use. This recipe is for a drink about 12 ounces. If you use a smaller glass, the drink will be thin (not creamy/frozen enough), so don’t use a smaller glass. If you use a larger glass, it will be thicker, so you can do it, but just add a bit more pineapple juice and rum to get it to mix properly, because it won’t blend if it doesn’t have enough liquid in the mix. Put the pitcher on the blender base and blend it thoroughly. You want it to blend until it is totally creamy. Depending on your blender, this may take 20 seconds, or it may take two minutes. Just let it run until it’s completely mixed and then pour it into your serving glass. The traditional glass is a hurricane glass for a frozen Pina Colada recipe, but you could certainly use another glass if you don’t have a hurricane. If you wish, garnish it with a piece of sliced pineapple. Add a straw and enjoy!
