My favorite thing about making strawberry pina coladas is how simple the shopping list is. Ingredients like pineapple, strawberries and limes make me feel like I'm enjoying a fruit salad with a side of rum 😊
- frozen pineapple
- coconut milk
- silver rum
- frozen strawberries
See recipe card for quantities.
Start with your favorite high power blender.
Toss in the frozen pineapple, coconut milk, lime juice and rum.
Blend things up until the consistency is smooth, creamy and easy to pour. Fill your glasses half way, making sure to use only about half of the contents of your blender.
From there, it's time to toss in the frozen strawberries and get blending again.
This cute pink mixture then gets poured over the first layer of pina colada delicious-ness in your glasses to create a fun multi-color blended drink.
Garnish with pineapple slices, fresh strawberries or a slice of lime and enjoy!
Hint: using frozen fruit really helps achieve that blended, frozen drink feel. If all you have is fresh fruit, pop it in the freezer before blending!
If you're anything like me, you love a good pina colada. These Strawberry Pina Coladas are just one of many variations of the popular drink I've experimented with. Check out these other versions I love:
- Virgin/kid friendly - skip the rum and keep things classic with my Virgin Pina Colada recipe
- On the rocks - this version uses juice instead of whole chunks of fruit, and gets shaken, not blended
Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Make sure you're using a good quality blender to achieve that frozen, blended consistency. I really love my Ninja blender you can check out on Amazon.
I've tested this out a few times and I can confidently tell you that these Strawberry Pina Coladas are best enjoyed fresh. Honestly, most cocktails and blended drinks especially do not stand up to freezing, making ahead or enjoying as leftovers.
Plus, they come together so quickly and taste so good, I can almost guarantee you won't have leftovers.
