This is the start to a good recipe. I would use fresh pineapple. Most importantly use Cream of Coconut, NOT coconut milk. Goya makes it. I used Myers Dark Rum. I also added a little condensed milk and omitted the sugar. Read More

Bleh!!! I made these for my Mother's Birthday and was expecting a lot better. My mom LOVES pina colada's but she couldn't even finish half of her drink. Not sure why but they didn't taste good. If you are looking for a good drink check out the Margarita recipe that Katherine submitted. They are 100% delicious! Read More

I love this recipe. I often don't have all the ingredients required for other pina colada recipes, but this recipe always comes in as a great substitute. To be honest, I just stick with this one now. It's simple and yields wonderful results. I've made this many times for company and always get raves. The only thing I do different is add more ice. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

YUM! I added some vanilla yogurt to this to make it more of a smoothie and we all wanted seconds! Good stuff! Also, you can substitute "Pina Colada Mix" for the coconut milk and sugar. Read More

I used a whole 14oz can of SWEETENED CREAM COCONUT one 9.6 oz can of pineapple juice (GOYA in the ethnic isle) a tray of ice cubes and FROZEN pineapple pieces. It was sheer heaven enough for 5 of us. No need for sugar because of the sweetened coconut! Read More

Delicious. The best pina colada I've ever had. Because I like things very sweet I added 1/2 C more pineapple juice and 1 extra tbs. of sugar. We also used 1 C coconut rum and added a lot more ice. I will definitely make this again and again. Read More

Pretty good! Made this without the rum for my daughter. Scaled this down added more ice in place of the rum and also added about 1/2 tsp. of coconut extract for a more coconutty flavor since all I had was a lite coconut milk. She's loving her frosty drink sitting out on the deck as we speak. Thanks! Read More

I've tried this before and it was decent, but just not the best w/ a "wow" factor. To give it a wow factor I did the following (1 serving): 3oz Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut 3oz FRESH Pineapple juice -meaning, I bought a pineapple, and I extracted the juice 3/4oz Good quality pineapple rum 3/4oz Good quality coconut rum 1 cup Ice Pineapple & cherry Garnish Blend together, garnish w/ pineapple & cherry Read More

I used 1/2 cup cream of coconut 1/2 cup half&half 6 oz of pineapple juice 1/2 rum and about two trays of ice cubes. This tastes pretty good though I'll probably do more coconut next time and less half&half. It makes for a very mild drink. I find mine sweet enough without the sugar but it tastes pretty darn good. The 8 ice cubes is misleading- I used a tray and a half and made enough for almost three big glasses. Thanks for sharing! Read More
