You'll need just three ingredients — pineapple chunks, sweetened condensed coconut milk, and rum — to make the best frozen piña colada of your life. 


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 (7-oz.) can sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 7 oz. white rum
  • Optional: 1 cup ice (if using fresh pineapple instead of frozen)


Combine pineapple, sweetened condensed coconut milk, rum, and ice (if using) in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. 

That's all there is to it! Now, as Nicole says, you can "bring the islands to your kitchen."
