A frozen Piña Colada is the perfect summer drink for sipping on the beach or poolside. Use frozen pineapple to thicken the drink with plenty of flavor.
Nothing says summer like a delicious frozen drink out by the pool or beach! We spend a full week at Fort Myers Beach in southwest Florida, so decided to make a batch of Frozen Piña Colada. The drink is so easy, only needing a few ingredients plus a blender.
The timeshare condo that we own at has a full kitchen with a good amount of supplies and utensils. We tend to do a Walmart Grocery order to pick up on the way every year so they find the ingredients for us. It’s the only time of the year that I do this since it’s so wasteful. But when we are driving hours to get there, we need the convenience.
Our time at Fort Myers Beach is the week I look forward to most of the entire year! My whole family on my mom’s side goes to the same condo. There are 42 units in the building and we own almost 20 of them now. We basically take over the building that week.
My aunt Shawn’s favorite drink is a frozen piña colada, so we made some for her when we took these photos. It was a little strong, but still delicious. I will lower the amount of alcohol just a bit next time, but I’m a lightweight.
Step by Step
At least a few hours before you want to make the piña colada, freeze the pineapple. We got a fresh pineapple, used our corer, and put that in the freezer.
When ready to make the drink, place all ingredients in a blender. Blend everything together until it’s creamy and smooth. If the drink is too runny, add more frozen pineapple or ice. If it’s too thick, add more of any one of the liquids.
