Piña Colada with Coconut Milk Ice Cubes

I love coconut milk. What I don’t love is that I never end up using a whole can. I always store the leftovers in the fridge with the intention of doing something with them. That something never happens. Ever. Not. even. once. #epicfail Then I came across this awesome article about freezing coconut milk. Sheer genius I tell ya!

I thought about making a smoothie with the coconut milk ice cubes but with summertime in full swing I thought a fun and fruity piña colada would be a nice summer treat.  My whole family enjoyed these and they were so easy to make.  Yea for coconut milk ice cubes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 8-10 coconut milk ice cubes
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tsp honey or brown rice syrup (optional)
  • pineapple wedges, optional garnish

Preparation:

  1. Place the pineapple chunks, coconut milk ice cubes, banana and pineapple juice in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Taste test the mixture and if needed add in honey for sweetness and pulse once or twice to combine.
  3. Pour into 2 large drink glasses and serve with garnish if desired.
