Bask in the essence of a tropical beach vacation with this family-friendly Virgin Piña Colada.

Did you know?

Did you know that the piña colada has been the national drink of Puerto Rico since 1978?

Experience the lush flavors of the tropics with a twist that's as family-friendly as it is refreshing. Our Virgin Piña Colada allows you to bask in the essence of a beach vacation without a drop of alcohol in sight. Picture this: the sun setting over a crystal-clear aqua sea as you sip on a creamy concoction that dances harmoniously with flavors of coconut and pineapple.

This non-alcoholic version retains all the joy and vibrancy of the classic without compromising taste for inclusivity. A sip transports you to a breezy Caribbean shore, even if you're just lounging in your backyard.


Scour your pantry for sweet pineapples and smooth, thick coconut cream to create the quintessential Virgin Piña Colada.

The coconut cream in this recipe is key - it adds a rich, velvety texture which is just divine when paired with the tangy sweetness of fresh pineapple juice.

  • 500 ml pineapple juice, chilled
  • 200 ml coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp white sugar, or to taste
  • 250 g crushed ice
  • Pineapple slices, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish (optional)


The art of the Virgin Piña Colada lies in its simplicity. These few steps will lead you to a delectable tropical getaway, no passport required.

For a slushier consistency, use frozen pineapple chunks instead of ice. Also, adjust sugar based on the sweetness of your pineapple juice.

  1. In a blender, combine the pineapple juice, coconut cream, and sugar.
  2. Add the crushed ice and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour the mix into two large glasses, ideally chilled.
  4. Garnish each drink with a slice of pineapple, a maraschino cherry, and a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg if desired.
  5. Serve immediately with a festive straw and a smile!

Add some extra love

For an irresistibly authentic touch, grill the pineapple slices lightly before garnishing for a caramelized flavor.
