Pina Maui Colada
Shane & I were on our honeymoon in Maui where this amazing creation was discovered.
If you’re like me & have a sweet tooth, this drink hits the spot perfectly every time.
It’s so quick & easy too!
Estimated time: less than 5 mins (including prep & clean up)
Serving Size: two 8 oz. drinks full
What you’ll need:
- Blender* (make sure it can handle ice)
- 2 cups Dohl Canned Pineapple Juice
- 1 Cup Heavy Cream
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 drops pure vanilla (optional)
- ¼ cup Coconut extract
- 2 cups of Ice (1.5 trays)
*We use our Blendtec blender (I praise this item, but I’ll talk about that in a different post)
Pour Pineapple juice, cream, sugar, vanilla, & coconut into blender
(I suggest adding the ice last because the ice melts quickly, but some blenders prefer you to add the ice first)
Set Blender on a high setting for about 15 seconds, after 15 seconds you should notice a thick blend with froth on top
*This can vary depending on your blender, keep a close watch!
♦Depending on how you like the consistency of your drink (I like mine a like more on the thicker icy side) start with less ice if you’d like a less thick drink
♦It’s ok to add or take away from any of these ingredients, it’s just what I prefer!
Try adding strawberries! This is my husband favorite, fresh strawberries are always great but we buy the Costco Frozen Strawberries, they last forever & make the drinks even colder, just add about a cup in for a hint of strawberry delight!
