Frozen piña coladas are 100x more refreshing that regular piña coladas. And honestly, I feel like people underestimate how good this drink is. It’s one of those cocktails that’s good enough to drink with no alcohol.

I’d even argue that piña coladas are BETTER without the liquor but don’t worry, I’ll break down specifics for both virgin and spiked versions.

Coco Lopez is a key ingredient

Coco Lopez is the signature cream of coconut brand I love to use. I’ve been using it for years both at home and in professional kitchen environments, and it has never done me wrong! Just make sure to shake and mix it really well because it ends to separate in the can.

Step by step instructions

  • Cut pineapple into large chunks then add pineapple and ice to a blender.
  • Add coconut milk and cream of coconut to the blender and blend on high until completely smooth. Serve in a glass with a slice of pineapple. Buen provecho!

Which rum to use for piña coladas

Use your favorite white rum (golden works too) for frozen piña coladas. A popular and inexpensive option is bacardi, but my absolute favorite rum for this drink is Malibu coconut rum.
