Frozen Pina Colada

Enjoy this kitchen-tested recipe package of Cocktails and Mocktails and Appetizers Recipes called the Frozen Pina Colada.

Many pina colada recipes call for cream of coconut, which is a sweetened version of coconut cream. This refined sugar-free version uses the rich coconut cream found on the top of a can of unsweetened coconut milk. A simple syrup made with powdered monkfruit provides the perfect touch of sweetness to balance out the other flavors.

Note: Simple syrup is normally prepared using a 1:1 ratio of refined white sugar to water. In general, monkfruit sweetener is considered a 1:1 replacement for sugar, but in this case, a 1:2 ratio (one-part sweetener to two-parts water) works well because the pineapple is inherently sweet.

You can use fresh, frozen, or canned pineapple for this recipe. For best results, use fresh pineapple that has been cut into chunks and frozen prior to blending.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yields: 2 drinks

Ingredients:

2 c. frozen pineapple chunks (see note above)
8 oz. pineapple juice
1/3 c. coconut cream
4 oz. light rum
6-8 ice cubes

Garnish: Fresh pineapple slices

Sugar-Free Simple Syrup:

¼ c. powdered monkfruit sweetener
½ c. water

Directions:

1. Prepare the simple syrup by combining the powdered monkfruit sweetener and water in a small skillet. Stir to combine and heat until the sweetener dissolves completely, approximately 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
