Virgin Pina Colada

Pina Colada literally means strained pineapple as per Wikipedia. The origin of this drink is disputed and has few different stories, however the popularity of this drink is undisputed. National Pina Colada day is celebrated on 10th July every year in few countries. Pina Colada less alcohol becomes Virgin Pina Colada. I hope you will enjoy this recipe and try at home. 

Servings: 1 Glass
Approx Time: 10-15 minutes

1/2 cup fresh Pineapple pieces
1 cup thick Coconut Milk / Cream
2 tbspns Sugar (or as per taste)
Ice cubes

For Garnishing:
Pineapple Wedge
Mint leaves

Take all the ingredients in a blender. Hand Blend it until it is smooth. Once done, check the taste and adjust Sugar. (If you like smooth drink, then pass the mixture through a strainer.)

Pour the mixture into Mocktail glass. Garnish it with Pineapple Wedge and mint leaves. Serve immediately. 

1. You may also add a scoop of Vanilla Icecream if the same is made for Children Party
2. A drop of Vanilla essence also enhances the flavour of Virgin Pina Colada.
3. You may add White Rum and eliminate Sugar and Vanilla Essence from the recipe to make a Cocktail version of Pina Colada.
