This Virgin Piña Colada Mocktail is an easy non-alcohol cocktail recipe. It’s creamy, sweet, and tropical with a coconut and pineapple flavor. In less than 5 minutes, this tropical drink is ready to be enjoyed.
- 4 cups ice (equals 32 ice cubes)
- 90 grams or ~ ½ cup super ripe pineapple chunks
- 1/3 cup or 80 grams cream of coconut, chilled*
- 1/3 cup and 2 tablespoons or 100 ml coconut milk, chilled
- 2 tablespoons or 30 ml pineapple juice, chilled
- 1 tablespoon or 14 ml lime juice, chilled
Set out all ingredients so you can easily place them one by one in a high-speed blender. Keep the ice cubes in the freezer until the last moment.
Add the liquids and then the pineapple chunks to the blender. Finish with the ice cubes.
Blend (on medium) for about 20 seconds until most of the ice is blended. Then pulse a few times or use a tamper. If you don’t have a tamper for your blender, stop the blender and use a spoon (safely!) to stir the mocktail. Then blend again.
You have to be careful not to blend this mocktail too much. Blending this for too long or too powerful will create a mocktail with a less frothed texture, and the drink will also slowly but surely heat up in the blender. The texture should be between a thick smoothie and a slushy.
A pina cola should be served in a hurricane glass, but feel free to use any other tall glass or small glass you have.
Garnish your drink with pineapple, lime wedges, a maraschino cherry, and a paper umbrella.
Cream of coconut is often used in cocktail recipes, so try to search for this in the wine/cocktail/drink aisle.
If you can’t find sweetened cream of coconut, use coconut cream with 1 1/3 tablespoons or 20 ml maple syrup.
To make this mocktail ahead, freeze the entire batch in a freezer bag for later. To serve it, let it thaw for about 5 minutes and give it a quick spin in the blender.
