If you like Pina Coladas

and getting caught in the rain…
Friday is finally here and I can’t wait to kick off the weekend.  So let down your hair and slip on your favorite worn-out flip flops…let’s blend that frozen concoction that helps you hang on.
This was the first time that I’ve made a pina colada without the pre-made mix.  If you have never done this…you have to! It was absolutely delicious. Tons and tons better and, believe it or not, better for you. (No high fructose corn syrup). I started with one of Paula Dean’s recipes for homemade pina coladas and tweaked it a little. 
Ingredients:
Ice cubes
1/2 cup Mount Gay Rum (Barbados)
1 cup Coco Lopez Coconut Cream
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Milk
1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
Several chunks of fresh pineapple
Pineapple slices for garnish
Fill blender half way with ice and add rum, coconut cream, coconut milk, pineapple juice and pineapple chunks and puree.
Garnish with a slice of fresh pineapple and of course a fun little umbrella. Enjoy!

If your better half is not in the mood for fruity goodness, an ice cold Hawaiian beer with always do the trick.
