Pina Coladas on a slow rainy day....ahhhhh.......
All and all not a fun day.
But all that changed when I set about to make a batch of Pina Coladas. Haven't had one for years but it sounded very refreshing especially since we have been on a fresh pineapple craze for sometime now.
As luck would have it I have everything needed to whirl them up. Ahhh, I am much happier now. I am more than half way done with the stack of paperwork. The Pina Coladas are delicious and there is a blender full of them made up for later this evening. A nice surprise I am sure when my husband comes in from his sticky and muggy day.
Here is what went in to them:
2 full shot glasses of light rum (6 oz.)
1/2 of a 15 oz. can of coconut cream
1/4 C. milk
1 pound of frozen pineapple chunks
6 oz. pineapple juice
2 C. crushed ice
fresh pineapple for garnish
Place everything except the pineapple for garnish into a blender or processor and puree at high speed until a slushy consistency. Pour into glasses and garnish with pineapple spears. Makes 4-6 beverages.
