Pina colada recipe with step by step photos – Virgin pina colada is a refreshing vegan mocktail drink made with fresh pineapple juice, coconut milk and ice cubes. A healthy beverage for the summer season made mainly with 3 ingredients.
It is the national drink of Puerto Rico. when I had posted fresh Pineapple juice, I had mentioned that I will share a popular mocktail pineapple drink made. Yes, this is that mocktail drink.
This recipe is of virgin pina colada where rum is not added. Only three ingredients go in the drink – pineapple, thick coconut milk and ice cubes. this is a kid-friendly recipe and one which is healthy as well as filling.
I would suggest to use fresh pineapple and not tinned pineapple. coconut milk can be made at home or you can use the ready made pack. Though freshly extracted coconut milk tastes better.
