Piña Colada with Coconut Milk Ice Cubes

Piña Colada with Coconut Milk Ice Cubes

I love coconut milk.  What I don’t love is that I never end up using a whole can.  I always store the leftovers in the fridge with the intention of doing something with them.  That something never happens.  Ever.  Not. even. once. #epicfail  Then I came across this awesome article about freezing coconut milk.  Sheer genius I tell ya!

Piña Colada with Coconut Milk Ice Cubes


I thought about making a smoothie with the coconut milk ice cubes but with summertime in full swing I thought a fun and fruity piña colada would be a nice summer treat.  My whole family enjoyed these and they were so easy to make.  Yea for coconut milk ice cubes!



  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 8-10 coconut milk ice cubes
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tsp honey or brown rice syrup (optional)
  • pineapple wedges, optional garnish


  1. Place the pineapple chunks, coconut milk ice cubes, banana and pineapple juice in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Taste test the mixture and if needed add in honey for sweetness and pulse once or twice to combine.
  3. Pour into 2 large drink glasses and serve with garnish if desired.

I opted to keep this drink family friendly and didn’t use any alcohol but if you wanted to make an adult version you could add some rum in to the mix.
