Ingredients to make pina coladaMonica Prego

how to make pina colada

We start by pouring 90 ml of pineapple juice into a shaker or blender glass. Add 30 ml of coconut milk and 30 ml of white rum. If we want to do it without alcohol, we replace the 30 ml of white rum with 30 ml of milk or cream and we will have a delicious non-alcoholic pina colada.

Adding the ingredients to make the pina coladaMonica Prego

Close the shaker and shake it energetically for a few seconds. If we prepare the drink in the blender glass, we activate it for 5 seconds. Open the shaker again and add crushed ice until it is almost full and if we do it in a glass blender, add about 100 g of crushed ice.
