Recipe Overview

  • Flavour Profile: A delectable tropical mix of pineapple and coconut. It’s deeply rich, thick and smoothie. Not overly sweet, but instead faultlessly refreshing and thirst quenching. If Bahamas was a drink, this would be it. This slushie pairs well with our easy sticky chicken.
  • Difficulty: Straightforward, easy peasy. This slushie has one main step which is to place all ingredients in the blender and blend. 
  • Time: 2 minutes to blend and 2 minutes to gather the ingredients. 5 minutes tops! 


Frozen diced pineapple, strawberries and apple mint
  • 2 and ½ cups – Frozen Pineapple Chunks 
  • 340 ml – Coconut Water or Coconut Milk 
  • ½ – juice of Lime 
  • 1 tablespoon – runny honey (optional
  • 30 ml – Coconut Rum (optional)
  • 2 – Fresh strawberries (to garnish, optional)
  • 2 – Fresh Mint Twigs (to garnish, optional)
Pressed Coconut Milk

Coconut Milk or Cream of Coconut?

The difference between coconut milk and coconut cream is that coconut milk is milk made from the pulp of coconuts. It is rich, and it also has high-fat content. However, coconut cream is much thicker than coconut milk, and it’s made from coconut milk. The coconut milk is chilled, then the top layer of cream that floats to the top is skimmed off. It is very thick and tastes like coconut, but is not sweetened. 

For this pina colada slushie, it is ideal to use coconut water, if you’re adding Coconut Rum to your slushie as the flavour blends well together. However, if you are not adding Coconut Rum, coconut milk makes for a better ingredient because it has a stronger taste and flavour to it. 

Do not use creamed coconut for this slushie. Creamed coconut is a pure, solid, and concentrated block that melts when heated. It’s the dehydrated fresh meat of a mature coconut. This is not ideal for this pina colada slushie.

Make it a Virgin Pina Colada Slushie

How to make Pina Colada Slushie:
