The Frozen Pina Colada is a cocktail holiday classic. Perfect for sipping during any celebration, the icy and sweet blend of pineapple juice, coconut cream, and rum will make any holiday party special.
Sugar-Free Simple Syrup:
¼ c. powdered monkfruit sweetener
½ c. water
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
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.
Place the frozen pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut cream, rum, and one-quarter cup simple syrup into a blender and blend until smooth.
While the blender is still running, add the ice a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
Turn blender off and remove lid. Taste and add additional simple syrup, if desired, and blend for another 30 seconds to combine.
To serve, pour into glasses and serve immediately garnished with fresh pineapple slices. Enjoy!
Omit the rum and replace with 1 oz. coconut cream and 3 oz. pineapple juice before blending.
