Let’s make this refreshing treat which usually consists of pineapple and coconut cream. We will make a non-alcoholic version that is super easy to make and is guaranteed to quench your thirst in this hot weather. Let’s top it up with some ice cream to make it tastier and fancier.

What you will need:

6-7 chunks of fresh pineapple

1/4 cup tablespoon coconut cream

50ml still water

250ml fresh pineapple juice (ice cold)

500ml pina colada ice cream or vanilla ice cream

Pineapple triangles to garnish

What to do:

1. In a blender, add in the pineapple chunks, coconut cream and pineapple juice.

2. Dilute it with the 50ml water, add one scoop of ice cream and give it a good blend, resting the blender every 30 seconds for about 1 and a half minutes or until you get a smooth consistency.

3. Pour the mixture into your chilled glasses. Scoop some extra ice cream into the top of the glasses. If you wish, you can add some extra tiny cubes of fresh pineapple for garnish (this is if you are using vanilla ice cream — piña colada ice cream already has some pineapple chunks in it).
