– To make the consistency thinner, you can use coconut milk (or even more water, it will just thin out the coconut flavor). If you still want maximum coconut flavor, but also want a thinner liquid consistency, use coconut water! Use coconut rum, for a maximum coconut taste.
– Make sure to use a high-power blender and blend until the consistency is completely smooth.
– To make a Virgin Strawberry Piña Colada, simply omit the rum, and add more coconut milk or pineapple juice in its place.
The Piña Coladas are best served fresh, but if you have to serve it later, store the layers separately in the fridge. Or you can store the layered drinks in the freezer, and take them out a few minutes before you’re ready to serve.
For the pineapple layer, blend together the rum, honey, coconut cream, lime juice, ice, and chopped pineapple.
Divide the mixture equally between three glasses. Freeze for 20 minutes. This will form the bottom layer.
For the strawberry layer, blend together the rum, honey, pineapple juice, coconut cream, lime juice, ice, strawberries.
Carefully pour the mixture between the three glasses and freeze again for 20 minutes.
For the peach layer, blend together the rum, honey, pineapple juice, coconut cream, lime juice, ice, and peaches.
Divide the mixture between the three glasses by carefully pouring it over the back of the spoon.
Garnish with choc chips and fresh mint, and serve.
If you want a thicker mixture, you can omit the ice cubes, and instead freeze the chopped pieces of fruit.
Make sure that you don’t skip the freezing step between pouring the layers. Otherwise, the layers will mix, and you will get one mixed color instead of three distinct layers.
