Pina Colada Delight

Carol White Recipe

By Carol White Mstwinkie

Prep Time:
No-Cook or Other

A creamy blend of coconut, pineapple and rum. This has to be one of the most popular cocktails worldwide, with a name meaning "strained pineapple". Pina Colada was introduced August 16, 1954 and has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978. This is my inspiration for making this drink into a dessert using Cream Cheese and Instant Pudding. This is a nice summer time dessert. Enjoy!

I made this recipe for dessert one night. It was a hit. Everyone loved the flavor. It didn't set real firm but it was amazing any way. I will give it a 5 star!

Nancy -
Pina Colada mix is a non-alcoholic bottled liquid one would typically add to alcohol to make a pina colada cocktail. It is sold in the liquor department at Walmart, in a large bottle.

I've read quite a few comments and no one else has asked - what is pina colada mix?

This was the worst pinacolota I've ever had! The rum was way too strong. Very disappointed!

This did not turn out well. I followed the recipe and ended up with a bitter pudding nobody would eat. Sorry!
