Looking for a frozen drink to cool you down the rest of the sweet summer months? You need something tropical. Let's go with a piña colada. These drinks are traditionally made with rum, coconut cream or coconut milk, and pineapple juice. However, that's just a suggested starting point — as with all things cooking, there are endless ways to make it your own. While you could follow any piña colada recipe you prefer, you should know that Pinterest's most popular recipe is a delicious riff that's also breakfast-approved (yes, it's virgin.) Yup, that means even the kids can enjoy this drink.
This strawberry colada smoothie from Cooking Classy is the most popular piña colada recipe on Pinterest. It has been saved over 80,000 times on the platform this year. The recipe is inspired by a classic piña colada recipe: It's all the icy, tropical goodness without the alcohol and with the addition of fresh strawberries and frozen bananas. The recipe is also simple, comes together quickly, and is vegan, kosher, and gluten-free to boot.
All you do is combine coconut milk, Greek yogurt, frozen pineapple, and frozen banana in a blender. Then, pour it into a tall frosty glass with alternating layers of freshly puréed strawberries. No added sugar, no hard-to-find ingredients — just one tall glass of "Take me away! I should be on a beach drinking this." You can always add a little rum if you really want it, but this doubles as a mocktail for kids or friends abstaining from alcohol.
