Classic tropical Pina Coladas made sweeter with the addition of fresh pineapple and fresh coconut. Only 1 teaspoons of sugar in each drink. Rum is optional.



2/3 cup chopped fresh young coconut meat or 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut meat

1 cup chopped fresh pineapple (or canned) frozen for 1-2 hours

1 1/2 cups coconut water (from fresh coconut if your kids don’t drink it all or I used Vita Coco brand)

23 teaspoons sugar

2 ounces rum



In a blender place coconut, frozen pineapple, coconut water and puree for 3-4 minutes until coconut is thoroughly pureed.

Add sugar and taste after a quick blend.

Add rum and ice to taste.

Garnish with fresh pineapple and a cocktail umbrella.


Freeze pineapple on a parchment-covered tray at least 1-2 hours before making the drink for a thicker, frostier drink.

Follow these super easy instructions for ‘How to Cut a Pineapple‘ by Nutrition Adventures.

I followed this YouTube video on how open a coconut, but my coconut was trickier to open. I needed a hammer and a nail too.
