It’s August and we're melting over here.  The air conditioning has been working non-stop, the children have been taking benefit of the sprinklers within the backyard, and we're making the greatest of issues via grilling or making dinners that require minimum cooking.



So for this month’s H.O.N.E. Monthly Cooking Challenge I needed to do anything fully refreshing, cold, and easy.  But also fun, festive, and a vast strategy to end out summer season and celebrate earlier than the brand new college yr begins.  Hence, non-alcoholic blender drinks and this simple piña colada recipe!

I don’t understand about you, but I’m all the time exhausted via the quit of the summer, to the extent the position even the concept of a holiday appears like too a lot work!  But whipping up a pair of non-alcoholic piña coladas can shipping me to a tropical seashore with out ever having to pack my bags or handle the resultant laundry that comes with unpacking whilst you get again home.

A few years ago whilst my oldest began primary school, we began a culture of getting a Back-To-School Feast, after being impressed via Stephanie Nielson of NieNieDialogues.  I all the time attempt to dress and make anything varied so it could be a celebratory meal, and I’m considering those kid-friendly non-alcoholic piña coladas will probably be the ideal beverage to serve at this year’s feast.  My ladies helped me with the recipe testing and liked the cold, frothy concoction with the cherries on top.

What is a Piña Colada?

The identify piña colada is Spanish for “strained pineapple”, and it was created in Puerto Rico within the 1950’s.  It has the truth is been the nationwide drink of Puerto Rico due to the fact that 1978!  While the usual cocktail is made with rum, cream of coconut, and freshly strained pineapple juice, we hold issues non-alcoholic round proper the following and skip the booze.

Piña coladas could be made both combined or shaken with ice.  Both are delicious, but we have a tendency to prefer the slushier combined version.  Either way, they're so fun and pretty, especially whilst garnished with both a pineapple wedge, marachino cherry, or both.

Enjoy a cool, tropical handle this summer season with those creamy, fresh and non-alcoholic Virgin Piña Coladas which are ideal for the entire household to enjoy!  It's a sip of paradise in each glass and can shipping you proper to the coloration of a palm tree on a warm beach, no passport required!
How to make a non-alcoholic Piña Colada

This virgin piña colada mocktail recipe couldn’t be easier.  It’s literally only a subject of pouring pineapple juice and cream of coconut appropriate into a blender, then including sufficient ice to attain the degree of the liquid and blending.  We love our Vitamix blender and apply it to a day via day foundation for protein shakes or smoothies, and it's super at making blender drinks like those piña coladas.  I particularly suggest getting one in case you don’t have a nice blender already.

I really, truly needed to make this with simply coconut milk or coconut cream, moderately than telling you to cross out and purchase cream of coconut, that's an factor which you just may discover within the drinks aisle via the alcoholic beverages – a region I hardly ever project due to the fact that we don’t drink alcohol in our home.  But I made a number of varied batches and recipes and shared them with chums we had over for dinner, and the model I’m sharing with you within the present day was the hands-down winner.

It’s now not that the others had been bad (I tried diversified combinations of coconut milk, beaten pineapple, sugar, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut), however the Coco Lopez cream of coconut imparted the greatest coconut style that couldn’t be matched via any varied method and balanced out the pineapple simply right.  Cream of coconut is simply coconut milk that has been thickened and sweetened and it’s price the more attempt of discovering it within the store.
